“When you don’t see me around certain people, it’s because these certain people aren’t god, they’re dealing with insecurities, these are insecure people,” said Nore. “I have the same phone number. You can be in a room full of five people, five people say they don’t f*ck with Nore, then those five people are probably the fakest five people in the world, ’cause Nore’s one of the top five most loved artists in the world.”
“So, when you see these little events, these little private dinners, these little private, little meetings, when you don’t see the Yalla there, it’s ’cause the Yalla wasn’t invited,” he added, saying he’s going to mind his business and not “complain about nothin‘.” Noreaga had more to say in the caption.
“A message from the Yalla @therealnoreaga: The other day I got asked why I wasn’t at certain events and it’s cause I go we’re im celebrated and not tolerated I can only be in rooms that love me from now on!!! The industry fake sh*t no longer works for me I’mma king don’t be mad now that I’m acting like one!!! Y’all not the only ones getting money anymore but keep that same energy.”
