Lord Jamar, a member of pioneering rap group Brand Nubian, turned heads after aiming hom0phobic words in the direction Kanye West via Twitter a week ago. The rap veteran makes a questionable move and ramps up the anti-gay sentiment with the release of a new diss track titled “Lift Up Your Skirt.”
Jamar defended his Twitter rant last week in an interview with SOHH, saying that he’s not attacking West’s s-xuality but simply his eccentric style of dress. Declaring war on the “feminization of the Black man in Hip-Hop culture,” the “Punks Jump Up To Get Beat Down” rapper unleashed the hom0phobic track earlier today after explaining his ire to Vlad TV in an exclusive interview over the weekend.
“Somebody mad at my hashtag/Instagram, Black Man lookin’ half a f-g/With a blazer and dress, I’m just amazed at the mess/Pioneer of this queer sh-t is Kanye West,” raps Jamar in an agitated tone. Jamar was inspired to do the song after receiving a photo a friend sent him on Instagram that he reposted, with a tweet reading “Y’all Cee where the Kanye sh-t is takin us right? #halfaf-g.”
Jamar is sticking to his guns, and has endured a barrage of tweets regarding the matter. Although he brushed aside the criticism, Jamar never fully apologizes for his petulant outburst.
