While speaking to Fox News, Forgiato Blow said that despite "Boycott Target" reaching No. 1 on iTunes, beating out artists such as Taylor Swift and Luke Combs, Apple has gone to great lengths to "shadow ban" it on the music streaming platform.
"It's shadow-banned all over the world right now," Blow told Fox News, explaining that his song is unsearchable on most of the company's website.
"You can't even search the song on iTunes without going to the music video and clicking the external link. So they're trying their hardest to keep it off the radar," Blow explained.
The catchy tune which begins with Blow rapping, "Attention all shoppers, there's a clean up on every aisle. Target is targeting your kids," has amassed more than 4.4 million views on his Twitter account, and over 470,000 on his YouTube channel called "Mayor of Magaville."
The three-minute music video was filmed inside a Target store and features Blow showcasing Target's LGBTQ Pride-themed merchandise, including rainbow wine bottles and a children's book titled "The Official Rainbow Yearbook."
The rapper told Fox & Friends First during an interview on Monday that he decided to create the song because, "There's no place for LGBTQ for fourth- and fifth-graders."
"We're living in a culture right now where people need to speak out. We need to stand up for the children," Blow explained.
The conservative-based rapper spoke about the censorship he has received on other platforms, including the social media giants Instagram and Facebook.
"I had my free speech ripped from me. A lifetime ban on Instagram, a lifetime ban on Facebook for speaking positivity," Blow told Fox News.
However, Blow explained that the music he created is "shifting the culture" and people are "starting to wake up."
He said his music allows people to understand that "you don't have to follow the crowd, you can stand on your own and be a leader."
