The episode ignited a heated debate about ethics in hip-hop media. Amid the backlash, Adam22 has finally spoken out, defending the interview’s legitimacy and the platform’s role in addressing difficult conversations within the industry.

“I did that interview because I thought it was an important historical record,” Adam22 says. “I didn’t do that interview because I don’t care… That’s what a lot of people seem to think. ‘Adam just doesn’t give a f**k.’ That’s not the case at all. I did that interview because I thought it was an important historical record of somebody involved in one of the most tragic, insane stories in rap history.”

Of all the shocking moments from the interview, one that stuck was the lack of remorse from Blockstar. “It should’ve never happened, but I ain’t sorry. If I could go back, I’d go back. But I ain’t sorry. People die every day. [Pop Smoke] was rapping about it. All types of stuff. So, I ain’t sorry about it.”
