Solange Blasts New ‘York Times’ Pop Critic on Twitter!

Grab your reading glasses because Solange has cracked open a fresh book from the library and started to read!

Early Thursday morning Solange took to Twitter to show that she has no damns to give about what “white indie guys” have to say about her or the music industry.

A music industry that, she points out, was built by Black people. Therefore people who proclaim to know anything about it need to have several seats.

In particular she called out New York Times pop critic, Jon Caramanica, for some past statements about Solange being the only person to buy Brandy’s album cuts a few years back. She didn’t just stop there though!

Solange also came to read him on his notion of her”biting the hand that fed her”, referencing the White music industry.

Solange! Sis!

So where did this all come from? There doesn’t seem to be a rhyme or reason for it all but this isn’t the first time that Solange has called out these predominately White music critics.

In 2013 when Carmanica originally made his statements Solange got on twitter  for what she called “an observation and request.”

In conclusion, don’t sleep on or come for Solange. She doesn’t need to be trapped in an elevator with you to finish you!Solange Blasts New 'York Times' Pop Critic on Twitter! - Jawbreaker
