Tyrese called out DJ Vlad for bringing up his personal life on VladTV and shared DMs of the founder’s $10,000 interview request to the singer.
The “Lately” singer appeared to take offense to a clip of an interview that Vlad released, during which Vlad brought up Tyrese as a topic of discussion and laughed through his questions. In response, Boosie Badazz said, “When he cried, that s**t hurt me. That s**t hurt my feelings. I say, ‘He hurt.’ I probably ain’t never seen too many people hurt like that on Instagram.” Tyrese then shared a now-deleted post of a conversation he had with Vlad that included a request for an interview that never happened, Vibe reported.
I still think Tyrese needs parental controls on his phone but I VERY much appreciate shedding some light on Vl*d's booking fees. The "payment same day" part especially explains some things. pic.twitter.com/4yE6VB5ZVO

“Your a** is hurting because even after you offered me 10k. I turned down your corny a** culture vulture show…..???????” Tyrese wrote in the beginning of the caption.
He continued: “Haven’t you used BLACK PEOPLE ENOUGH??? What’s the dudes name who talks off camera who owns VLAD TV?? Can y’all pull his tax returns????????” Tyrese wrote. “How much is he leaching off of BLACK CULTURE???? This dude is already have four people on his show and he randomly keeps bringing MY NAME UP… laughing about my divorce traumas laughing about my crying video and trying to milk my traumas and pains in the Clickbait for his goofy a** show….”
The 44-year-old continued his rant about Vlad and the controversial platform, writing that he is fed up with Vlad bringing up his name during interviews with other guests.
“Every time my name is bought up people are looking at him ‘Why you talking s**t about my brother Ty’… he just keeps going… You corny AF dude…. 10k for what????? That ain’t even my daily Perdiem,” Tyrese wrote.
As he continued to address Vlad directly, he wrote, “Do you know who I am????? You know I can f**k your whole s**t up right???” He urged other prominent artists to take a stand against Vlad and said that if he does reach out for an interview request, they should increase the price.
“One thing about Tyrese I ALWAYS GOT [RECEIPTS]…. I’m black royalty my people will never ever turn on me…..,” Tyrese added. “You can bring me up for your next 10 interviews they all love me….. I’m ALL HEART…. #CultureVulturesDieSlow Look at Boosie’s face??? You over over talking about my n***a Ty?? Nah corny f**k boy #RealHoodN****sSalute.”
Vlad has not addressed Tyrese’s post.
The California native isn’t the first artist to use their platform to call Vlad out. Complex reported that Benny the Butcher, Asian Doll, NLE Choppa and Top Dawg Entertainment President Terrence “Punch” Henderson are just a few people in the industry who aired their grievances against Vlad and the news website.
