I can’t stand the Dallas Cowboys but I really like what former wide receiver Michael Irvin did when he slammed his son’s fake rap career, calling him out in public and reminding the boy how easy his life was. Irvin was talking on Skip Bayless’ FS1 show called ‘Undisputed’ when the former Cowboy blasted his son, Tut Tarantino (what a weirdo name) and reminded everyone that his son grew up in a gated community, despite sometimes talking like he’s gangster or struggled in songs.
Irvin suggests his son sings about things he never actually experienced. It’s not like there was gang life in the gated community, ya know! Unless there was and it was just about figuring out territories on the golf course and not wearing the wrong colors to the community pool. Irvin said the following during the show:
I got a son. He raps. His rap name is Tut Tarantino… If you ever listen to some of his raps. I’m like, ‘Oh my god.’ Where does this come from, son? You grew up in a gated community your whole life. But he’s rapping my life. Because we romanticize and fantasize about that old thug life, ghetto life, and all of that stuff. When… we used to work to get away from. Now, we’ve gotten to a place somehow where we’re running back towards it. In the music, in everything… He raps about some of the hardest stuff in the world… I say to him, ‘Son, you grew up in a 20,000 square foot. gated community! Where does this stuff come from? … I worked hard to get you out of this, and you’re rapping right back to it.
Irvin reminded everyone his son, whose real name is Elijah, that he was pretty privileged growing up, but he’s rapping himself right into the gutter if he keeps it up. WATCH the video below:
