Today in Hip Hop News, we yet again exclusively capture what looks to be a disturbing Instagram live rant launched against American rappers and producers P Diddy & Jay-Z by Orlando Brown.
Publicly known as an American rapper, singer, and with his famous televised roles, for example, as Cadet Kevin 'Tiger' Dunne in Major Payne, & 3J Winslow in Family Matters, Brown has earned a reputation as one who has experience in and out all facets of the “industry”, both music and entertainment.
It is undeniable that Brown has the drop on the inner workings of the industry and can personally attest to the “things going on out here”, Orlando foreshadowed in his Instagram rant dated in the last couple of weeks.
However, after his late recovering battle from his drug addiction and his reputation for baseless rants, fans are stuck deciding if he’s actually telling the truth and if his information is credible, or is this him just spouting outlandish statements?
Today, you’ll get to decide with HHU’s & Viral Hip Hop News’ perfect capture of Brown’s rant to the public about those like him who’s chosen to speak up about what actually occurs in the industry and the violent and dangerous backlash he faced in the midst of doing so.
Opening up with “the people shall praise you forever and ever”, Orlando dives in by talking about how society pays tribute to “the ones that actually stand up what’s going on out here… and the ones that actually stand up for the righteousness”.
Here, Orlando stands true as we’ve seen various accounts of how appreciative society is when given the “insider secrets'' of what REALLY goes on in our entertainment/music industry.
However, it gets very dark and seems to threaten those who plan to not keep it a secret as Orlando later claims that in response to his transparency, he’s been violently targeted and now has a X on his back as he claims “he’s trying to kill me”.. referencing rapper P Diddy.
It gets even more sinister as he goes into detail of the attempts of silencing him and even going as far as targeting others that are close to him.
“No matter how many contracts you try to take out on my life, no matter how many times you threaten my family or threaten people to stay away from me, no matter how many things you try to do to me and how many things you’ve tried to do to me.. It ain’t working”.
To add more, he goes “we frighten people like this.. Frighten people with the truth”. The truth Orlando believes that moguls like Jay-Z and P Diddy believe that people like him are supposed to “sit back and have tea” and casually “talk about these things in the morning time”.
In other words, those that are in the industry are obligated to keep secret the dirty truths that exist in the game and take being verbally and indirectly pressured to stay quiet and not speak out.
They tell you to “control your emotions, the thoughts of your mind, control your heart, control it, mind, body, and soul.. control it”, Orlando rants.
Hundreds of commenters jump to Brown’s defense. One individual said “I believe every word he speaking!”.
Another chimed in with “I’ve always supported and understood Orlando. He’s under attack from exposing the elite. “They” label him “crazy”. He’s not”.
