Lil Duval has been entertaining people for a long time.
From his early stand up days as Roland Powell and his routine based upon Musiq Soulchild’s 2000 hit “Just Friends” to his addictive chorus on “Smile (Living My Best Life)”, Duval has been making audiences laugh for almost two decades.
But today he made audiences on Twitter feel some sort of way with the release of his song “Black Men Don’t Cheat” featuring Charlamagne Tha God.
Say what you will about the song, Duval’s past as it relates to the lyrics and concept or anything else that comes to mind, but there’s no denying that it struck a major nerve on Twitter today. It set things off and now it’s now trending #1 with the hashtag #blackmendontcheat. Most interesting is the fact that it’s caused lines to be drawn in the sand.
Some got defensive, some aggressive and others simply laughed it off. But regardless of the reaction, the fact is that Duval has everyone up in their emotions over this hot button topic, one that’s not new and has been discussed and debated for the longest time.
Here are a few of the Tweets in the firestorm that is #blackmendontcheat on Twitter:
