Adams, during an interview asked Tommy G whether he’s a culture vulture. Tommy G gave a surprising response. Adams asked, “Doing some culture vulture, sh*t?” Tommy responded, “How do you think I get these connections? These guys are DMing me. I don’t have a network around the country of random people. A guy from Philadelphia will message me. A guy from Miami will message me. Then I’ll line it up.”
He continued, “And then as far as the culture vulture thing, I don’t think I’m pretending to be anything that I am not. I’m not walking in here acting like I’m some big dog, some big gangster. I know exactly who I am. I’m a kind of nerdy, weird white guy who likes to wrestle and do Jujitsu, read books and go walk in the woods. The whole cultural appropriation thing, I see both sides of it but the stance I kind of see is like you’re not German, you’re not going to eat bratwurst. If you’re not a Greek, do you get to run a marathon? Like where do we want to drop the line?”
He added, “And the reason why people come to America is because we have so many interesting flavors going together. I can walk down the street, I can hit Afghani, I can hit Jamaican. And that’s why I love this place.”
