U-God Says Kanye West Needs To “Come Back On Planet Earth”

(AllHipHop News) Wu-Tang Clan’s U-God is releasing his new album Keynote Speaker today (July 23), but the Staten Island emcee also took the time to give his opinion on some other artists’ recent projects as well. When it comes to Kanye West’s 6th album Yeezus, U-God thinks the G.O.O.D. Music leader has traveled to far out into the galaxy.

“Tell him there’s no sound in space. He’s got to come back on planet Earth,” U-God tells The Huffington Post. “Space is a vacuum. There’s no sound in space. Earth is where it’s at. Come back down baby, come back.”

The 42-year-old rap veteran also had a few words for Roc Nation’s J. Cole. While he likes Cole’s music, he feels the Born Sinner performer should not be placing himself at the same level as Nas and Jay Z just yet.

“See, my whole thing is, with respect, dude’s got to earn that,” said U-God. “I don’t like it when dude’s just talking in the air, it’s like taking a gun out and shooting in the air. Naw, man. Just keep coming. Just keep making music until people bow down like that.”

U-God had more favorable things to say about J. Cole’s boss Jay Z’s latest album. He says Jay is in a “creative zone” and calls Magna Carta Holy Grail a transitional album to the digital age.

The Universal God also recognizes Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne, and Drake as rappers that get his “blood boiling” with their talent.

“I don’t know why niggas frontin’ on Drake. He has rhymes, man. He’s getting it in. I’m not trying to be like him, but I’m not going to front on you, I like his style of music,” said U-God about the Young Money artist.

    Wheel chair jimmy do have bars I admit with no shame . Kayne trash now I bumps the old soulful chi town with bars shit he used to come with

  • Live Well

    Drake ain’t wack but he ain’t some ill nigga either. He’s a very good pop artist and he has a flow that is very palatable for radio.

    • johnblacksad

      Exactly Drake got bars for dayz…. but they just don’t move me like Lil’ Keke for instance

      …plus i really don’t fcuk with nothin siruppy like that…

      • Live Well

        Me neither. His music definitely wasn’t made for niggas like me.

      Drake is another one of those artists that should put out a mixtape every other year titled ‘What We Wanted to Put Out’ Volume whatever.
      I’m sorry but I just can’t listen to the songs that he and the like put out after their perspective record labels have ravaged them. Waaaaay too soft, hollow and commercial for me. THEY stole the soul!

      • Live Well

        No doubt

  • junj03

    Dont be mad at cole cause he sells albums & singles and does not have to do pop songs like drake,

    • johnblacksad

      I don’t think he sounded mad at all… plus he ain’t exactly lyin

      Cole do be actin like he the new Nas… but Nas is still alive… Nas got so many stripes you can’t be startin no comparison because you’re droppin your sophomore LP

      Plus i ride for the WU!

      • Basically!

        I don’t agree with the statement of Cole acting like Nas. Cole has more echoes of 2Pac than Nas, and he sounds nothing like Nas.

        The whole next Nas and Jay Z accolades that were put on J Cole and Jay Electronica were put out there by Jay Z himself, I do believe, and the media and some fans ran with it.

        I don’t think anyone can punish J Cole for that, even if he does mention it in his rhymes now, he’s just showing where he’s trying to reach, what his aspirations are.

        It’s like Redman saying he’s the Jimmy Hendrix of rap. No one really thinks he can play the guitar, it’s just a metaphor. Rappers who don’t sell units singularly are a real sensitive bunch and always seem to have more opinions than they do fans.

      • johnblacksad

        Cole cool still…

      • Whenever your name comes up in the same convo as J or Nas I guess you are . . .

      • I agree with everything except Cole echoes of 2pac. I think he’s a bit of a new breed cross between J and Nas, the two who dudes that he’s tried to be like.

      • Obi Won

        Right, he’s not as deep or intellectual as Nas but something about Cole reminds you of him, He can make commercial joints like a Blueprint 1 Jay, but can still capture the underground audience with his rhymes & overall music. Cole to me is a lil closer to Jay, Nas was terrible at making commercial songs especially by todays standards.

      • I can dig that, crazy thing is he has the ability to get deep or intellectual but hasn’t chosen to yet . . . then again I’ve only heard a few of his joints. He still young and has more time to grow as a man and as a artist.

    • Tony G.

      this dude is part of a legendary group…niggas use that dumb ass hate word too much…he’s not hating

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      uh power trip aint pop ?? LOL if that aint the most hoeish drake sounding song i dont know what is … the whole mind state that song is in is on some drake tampon wearing music …… ijs lol …….

    • Live Well

      All his stuff is pop.

  • J.Erick

    U- God always been the weakest link tho

    • johnblacksad

      That’s where you wrong… Golden Armz Redemption & Dopium are dope albums! Mr Xcitment is a different story… matter fact maybe i gotta listen deeper… but U-God is far from weak… his style may seem unorthodox, he ain’t as sharp as say Inspektah Deck for example but his groove is alright!

      Listen to It’s Yourz again or Heaterz (my favorite Wu-Tang track ever!!!!! i’ve prolly heard that song over 10000 times!!!)

      like the Emancipation Proclamation”

      • J.Erick

        ………….Again, U-God always been the weakest link tho

      • johnblacksad

        I will never admit that… ain’t no weak nor weakest link in the WU!

        Peace god!

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        technically master killa is the weakest link in the WU ….

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        most people just try to pin U God because he was the one that spoke his mind …. but never really had the success like method, ghost, rza and other members had ….

      • johnblacksad

        Please, i’m begging you to say you are joking!

        Whaaaaat?!!!! Masta Kill?! High Chief Jamal Irief aka Noodles??!! Couldn’t be…

        He got legendary verses… the only one he spit on 36 album is one of the best ever! His verse on Killarmy’s 5 star general is one of the best ever! His verse on Winter Warz is one of the best ever! His verse on Wu-Gambinos is one of the best ever! His verse on… well you get the point…

        Wow, i understand it when people point at U-God even tho you won’t catch me admitting to it… but Masta Killa?!!

        I seriously think you might be joking… please say you do

      • ItGoesDownINtheDM

        u god has legendary verses too … but over all master killa is the weakest link … shit even if we look today … master killa is on……………. flatline dude prob will tell you himself hes the weakest link …… i seen some recent footage of them all together and even in that moment master killa was looking like wtf am i doing here lol ……..

    • Golgo 13

      ye i ve heard ppl say something like that but i agree with wot he sed about j cole

    • Live Well

      Most solo rappers would’ve been the weakest link in The Wu.

    I just like seeing the Wu-Nation is still alive… Interesting take on the new spitters, but U-God always been a little more ready to embrace the mainstream… Check “Black Shampoo” or “Chez Chez La Ghost” – Speaking of which Big Ghostface won’t be happy about him putting his top 1 – 3 softest rapper on any lyrical level.

    “Jay’s…had to adjust to the digital age…The man is always going to have lyrics and be rhyming.”
    Jay-Z still flows but he only picks corny, plastic, bullshyt beats now because he’s bought into the idea that that’s what all the clubbers, industry board rooms, bandwagon music buyers and radio programmers want to hear from him.
