Tank Doesn't Get It


A couple months ago R&B singer Tank thought it would be cute to start an intra-race war between light skin Black girls and dark skin Black girls by posing a blanket statement on Twitter in the form of the question, "What do dark skin Black women have against light skin Black women [click here if you missed that]?"

In totally unrelated news Tank had a meltdown on Instagram last night because sales from his latest album sucked donkey balls…

That's what his stupid ass gets. I bought his music in the past, but never again. Black men like him will never get my money or support.

He'll "come out of retirement" with another flop next year.

Who the fuck is Tank. I mean the name itself is pretty descriptive in the connotative since.

Oh well. Shouldn't have stirred the pot. See what it did to Taye and Yung Berg? They're literally just coming back on the scene, and barely at that.

this fool look like he need to come out the closet. sounds like he has issues with dark skin women to even say that. i don't believe darkskin and light skin have a problem with eachother. society has mental issues with skin color. society will not let the two get a long.

Tank has been acting like a babyback-bitch for a minute! Real all in his feelings all the time. I mean, to be honest the last time he was hot Beyonce was in Destiny's Child and Bill Clinton had just left office. Get real! He isn't guaranteed success- no one owes him anything. His sense of entitlement kept him from connecting with new fans and keeping old ones. Don't be mad boo boo. Do better!

Awwwwww tank well you know how the industry is, they full of cobras, vipers,eel's,Sidewinder rattlesnakes, black mamba's, lions, tigers, greed plane and simple, they play favoritism and the one's they scope out the ones who they think with generate them millions and after you've done so they kick you to the curb, you've made them millions and millions and that's the thanks you get hu? Tank it's a thankless industry filled with lies, deceit, and it's a cesspool filled with Viper's poisonous snakes, poisonous people who ware disguises,and tank truthfully and I'm trying to be mean in my opinion and aging I'm not trying to hurt or hinder your musical talent, but you were never really all that hot, you did have a few songs that hit the wave, but it never sky rocketed it just stayed Mello like and that's cool, you were never a chris brown or neyo or usher or trey songs,kendrick lamar, you know? They're younger and have some of the best hit makers on their team. And I'm not saying your music completely suck, but I am saying you need to get with some hit makers and see if something pop,and please don't take this the wrong way tank it's just true, but if it's any comfort your cut"your my STAR I LOVE THAT SONG! I have it on my celly ringtone I really like that song, goodluck tank

i'm shamed i went to a tank concert last year...i always appreciated him because i thought unlike current r&b black singers he actually respected and had love for his black female audience. with that question he posted, turns out he just another DBR black man. what a shame because i did like looking at him. Praying anthony hamilton doesn't mess up next. now that's a brother that can sing.

We feel the same way his dark butt feels about lighter skin men. FOH

I wish he would just " Tank", and take his crybaby behind somewhere and get a job! That's what desperate people do!

Let's see. First he tries to stir a hornet's nest among his fan base. Then he says that he does not want to offend white artists. Later he wishes that he was born white.. Now he wonders why no one is buying the wack product that he calls music.

Throwing a pity party for himself i see. After all his caping for mixed chicks, in the end they and other non-black chicks couldn't give 2 fucks about his music. What does that tell you? It was only black women propping this bulldog faced muppet up and he's lost a lot of their support now after all his shameful histrionics just a few months back.

I've never been a fan of his and it will be great to see him finally put out to pasture and out of his misery. He should go out and find a real job like everyone else - entitled bastard.

Oh, so that's how Tank feels? Fuck him. His ass is no longer fine to me anymore because his personality seems ugly!!! And this is coming from a LIGHT-SKINNED CHICK. Midget ass nigga~!

Well, I for one loved the album (all of them actually), and that's too bad he feels this way.

Says a lot about a man's character to use them ole tired willie lynch tactics on an entire race of women. Too many DBR jokers that need to be on somebody's couch getting help instead of being part of the problem. Psychological rapist asshoaxs.

Tyrese and Ginuwine, where y'all at? Your boy needs a hug.

How many damn kids does he have? I recall hearing somewhere that he had like 8 kids.

With 8 kids, he would want to love ALL women to sell records and gulp a big cup #STFU & hire a publicist.

Damn dummy!

The Lightskin/Darkskin thing was pure fuckery on Tank's part. He alienated what little audience he had with his self-hatred & contempt for Black Women who have the audacity to actually look like Black Women. I lost a lot of respect for him & for that cornball Miguel as well when he made broad statements about All Black People.

With that said......TANK SPEAKS THE TRUTH IN HIS "RANT" ABOUT THE STATE OF R&B MUSIC! R&B is dead & has been for at least a decade now. The only things offered to Blacks nowadays are corporate funded Rap & Hip-Pop (a hybrid of cheesy synthesized Pop Music & Hip-Hop) designed to make us look as violent, materialistic, low-class & idiotic as possible.

Today's idea of R&B is having an idiot (of any color) moan pornographic nonsense through an AutoTune Filter over a Hip-Hop beat. Real Black Singers/Musicians like Tank aren't supported by labels because there just isn't a place for them in the music industry any longer. If a young White male were to come along today with Tank's looks & musical talents he'd be getting a HUGE PUSH by his label, would be hailed as The Next Justin Timberlake in the press & Pharrell, TI, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z etc would be tripping all over themselves to get involved in his next project. It's a shame that Tank has ruined his credibility to such an extent that no one is actually listening (reading) what he's saying here.

I never liked this bubble-eyed fool! Nigga always looked like Floyd Mayweather had punched him in both eyes! Glad I never bought any of his music, and I never will! I hope Tank's career has officially tanked!!

This is BY FAR the pettiest, childish, most immature rant by an artist I have ever seen, and he wonders why his sales suck...cause he suck!! You can't insta-cuss your fans out because they aint buying your dumb CD...news flash music aint been selling since early 2000s. And pulling the race card was just unnecessary and made him look beyond stupid. If your heart aint in and its clearly all about the money go apply at the mall. boy bye!!!

LaurynTrill said...

Well Tank.....you should audition for the next installment of RnB Divas....

TruthTeller said...

12:10, you completely missed the whole point here. There was no "race card" pulled. I'm sure he's well aware (more than yourself) that music sales across the board aren't what they used to be. What he said was (PARAPHRASING) that if you're a White Artist you have the luxury of being "mainstream" by default. Blacks who aren't rappers on the other hard are instantly thrown into a dwindling Urban/R&B Market that doesn't even exist anymore.

I could give two shits about Tank but he speaks the truth.

Tank's next job will be on OWN with Shanice and Flex. He will be trying to get him career back .

"I look Better..."? OMG? WTF does that have to do with being an artist? It's clear where his head is and why people are not interested in buying his music. Looks will only get you but so far...
