That's like a white woman who dates nothing but black men but has no black female friends. None. Something very odd about that but ok
A white dude who grew up in a known aa cultural city, makes millions off black music and rips off, excuse me, is influenced by black artists has not made one black friend who was close enough to be involved in his wedding? Yeah that's not suspect at all
Usually when you are truly immersed in a culture and not just appropriating for personal gain, you tend to make genuine personal relationships with the people you swagger jack daily.
But excuses like this are why "artists" like jt, iggy, macklemore, etc can come in and swoop black award shows and get accolades
