Styles P is sharing his thoughts on Billie Eilish’s controversial comments about rappers lying in their lyrics.

During an interview with Vogue, Eilish accused rappers of lying about guns and women in their music.

She said, “Just because the story isn’t real doesn’t mean it can’t be important. There’s a difference between lying in a song and writing a story. There are tons of songs where people are just lying. There’s a lot of that in rap right now, from people that I know who rap. It’s like, ‘I got my AK-47, and I’m fuckin’,’ and I’m like, what? You don’t have a gun. ‘And all my bitches…’ I’m like, which bitches? That’s posturing, and that’s not what I’m doing.”

Styles got wind of Eilish’s comments and took to Twitter to let her know that rappers can say “whatever the fuck they want.”

He tweeted, “Rappers can say whatever the fuck they want and pretty much all rappers lie .. if you don’t like it then Don’t listen and mind your damn business.”

”Who is Billie eilish? Why the fuck do we care what she thinks??” Styles continued. “And she is sorta Of right but she don’t get the culture nor is she part of it so why do we give a fuck? How or why is her opinion important to us?”

“Made a song called IM BLACK .. I may hear the beat play on a commercial here n there for bhm! ‍♂️ ‍♂️. Somebody tell billy eilish that !!!!!!!” he continued.

Styles even admitted to lying in some of his raps.

“I’ve lied in a lot of rhymes !! I’ve rhymed about having and doing shit I didn’t or couldn’t .. and those lies got me to be able to live nice and do nice shit .. if you don’t like something don’t listen to it,” he tweeted.
