Lord Jamar of Brand Nubian fame has never been one to hold his opinion close, especially after recently checking Kanye West on his fashion choices. Now, the veteran rapper has unleashed slander on Macklemore, and another rapper, Hospin – adding that the “Same Love” rapper is pushing a gay agenda through Hip-Hop.
In a recent sit down with Vlad TV, Lord Jamar was asked about the rise of Macklemore, and referred to white rappers as outsiders to what he feels is an inherently black culture.
“Okay, white rappers, you're coming to this almost as a guest,” Lord Jamar said. “Okay, matter of fact you are guests in the house of Hip Hop. Just because you have a hit record doesn't give you the right as I feel to voice your opinion.”
He continued with, “Yeah, I say rap is gay friendly. Making a song like that [“Same Love”] is like feeling that you have the same footing as any other Hip Hop artist and to me you don't. You don't. Like I can't go to somebody else's house and even though they let me wear their clothes and eat their food, that's not my house. That's their house.”
The interview was retweeted by Hopsin, who had some choice words for the “Punks Jump Up To Get Beat Down” rapper. “[F]-ck this b-tch ass fool and his definition of hip-hop. macklemore represents something bigger,” tweeted Hopsin early Monday (Sept. 23) evening. Lord Jamar responded in kind as he's known to do.
“So some THAT'S SO RAVEN ass N-GGA named @hopsin is talking sh-t...F-CK him & his followers,” tweeted Lord Jamar. “No seriously he used to be on THAT'S SO RAVEN. LMAO,” he said in a following tweet.
A look at Lord Jamar's time line showcase the former Oz actor railing on Hopsin a bit more and digging into his “white rappers are guests” theory with a little more edge as the evening wore on.
