Why did AI rapper FN Meka come under fire?

Some music fans accused FN Meka of stealing from the Black community after Capitol announced they had signed a deal with the AI ​​Rapper.

A social media user posted a picture online showing FN Meka being beaten by a virtual police officer in a prison.

The rapper captioned the post with the caption, ‘This security guard keeps hitting me with his stick because I don’t get bored. I’m not a rat. Life in prison is very sad.’

Additionally, Industry Blackout also addressed the issue on Tuesday.

They said, ‘This digital symbol is disgusting and disrespectful to real people who are affected by the consequences of life.’

The group added, ‘For example, Gunna, a Black artist featured on a song, is currently under arrest for rejecting the various lyrics that this bot imitates. The difference is, your artificial rapper will not be subject to government fees for it.’

In addition, the group has asked social media users to share black squares because of the murder of George Floyd.

At the time, one user commented, ‘The AI ​​Rapper is the digital black screen advancement I’ve been talking about for years.’

A second user commented, ‘Meka just has a black face and no face.’
