Fall Out Boy: “We’re Still Fall Out Boy!”
If you dont like Fall Out Boy working with rappers, you can cock it and pull it
Fall Out Boy have hit back at those knocking their hip-hop hook-ups.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with MTV News, the Fall Out crew, who have recently been spotted hanging out with the likes of Jay-Z and Kanye as well as collaborating with hip-hop artists on new tracks, said that people should just take their music for what it is. It is almost painful, said Pete, to watch people be like Oh it is so different and this is insane and reviewers or the press get the one sheet on it. Oh yeah they worked with (whispers) black people! and they are like Its rap, it is actually a rap record.
It is real disheartening because you feel like people know how they feel about the record before they even listen to it.
Vocalist Patrick Stump added that even if they experiment with different sounds and work with different people they are still the Fall Out Boy that fans know and love. Its one of those things where you cannot escape yourself, he said, and no matter what we do we are still going to be Fall Out Boy. And the key is that we are proud of that.
