Tech N9ne shared a picture of Uzi wearing an upside down cross on his Instagram page. Along with it, he wrote a lenghty post. The text includes reflections about Christianity, worshiping the devil, as well as criticism about hip-hop fans.

“Ok guys, excuse my ignorance but, I’ve never wore an upside down cross out of respect for my elders who follow Christianity and I’ve never worshipped a devil like people have said I did either but, THIS is an upside down cross on this superstar’s neck right? Right!” The rapper writes.

Yes, indeed. There’s an upside down cross hanging on Uzi’s neck in the picture, you can check it out below.

Now, on to the important question…

“How is he not shunned by the black folks that turned their back on me in 2001 due to my imagery being satanic in their eyes?” N9ne asks.

Not that he has anything against Uzi, to make it clear.

“Not that I want this young brotha to be shunned, i just wanna understand how folks can look at my painted face and say devil and satan but not look at his painted face (L9L) with an UPSIDE DOWN CROSS and NOT say devil and satan?” He continues. “Help me out y’all! I ask with love in my heart and NEVER hate!”

We don’t know how to answer that question, but we have another one. Can’t a guy just wear an upside down cross without worshiping the devil?

Anyway, you can check out the picture and the post in full below:
