American rapper, Isaiah Rashad has addressed his leaked sex tape during his performance at Coachella.
The 30-year-old hip-hop star whose real name is Isaiah Joel McClain had a sex tape released back in February that showed him engaging in sex acts with two men.
Rashad’s intro video before his set featured other rappers such as The Game and Joe Budden reacting to the video and supporting Rashad, before a number of clips of various music pundits were seen talking about the tape, with one wondering what it will do to his career. One person insisted, ‘it’s not gonna do nothing to his career,’ while another added it was ‘f***ed up that it happened to him.’
Another added, ‘The purpose of doing that was to embarrass him, but, however, it backfired. When his video leaked, his dreams and everything went up, he’s up on the charts now.
Another video featured The Game saying, ‘N****s be like “Yo Rashad, he doing this, he doing that.” Bro, why is you so worried about what another man is doing?”
‘I’m straight and maybe he go a different way so go that way. That don’t make me feel less of a man,’ another said, while another rapper said he’s glad Isaiah can finally be himself.
The video ends with another person saying that it depends on how Rashad,’ responds to it.’
During a break between songs towards the end of his set, the audience applauded the rapper, as he thanked everyone for their support over the last few months.
‘I see all the messages and all that s**t,’ all the positivity… Y’all kept me alive these last couple months,’ Rashad said before going back into his set.
He was also seen with tears streaming down his face as he performed his song Wat’s Wrong during the set.
The Coachella performance was his first public appearance since the tape leaked in February.
