Hip-Hop Rumors: One Hip-Hop King Goes Disses Another!


Long before Jay-Z considered himself The King, there was DMC of Run DMC (In the middle above) who proclaimed himself The King of Rock, which was audacious in itself in the 80s. But, lo and behold in 2013, the two kings have a very different opinion of each other. Basically, DMC is not feeling that Jay-Z is not “hot” in the streets. He feels that people are brainwashed to like him.

RELATED: DMC Talks About His Disappointment With Hip-Hop And The Lack Of Respect For Its Pioneers

Here is what he said in a recent interview:

 

“It was inevitable that hip-hop became commercialized but along the way our power got taken away. Now you got the same 12 records on radio being played over and over again. Lil Wayne, Jay Z ain’t hot, it’s just they’re programmed so many times people are brainwashed.”

“What made us, KRS, Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul great was that we wanted to change the world, taking responsibility for our actions. Now everything that’s negative in stupid ass America is
celebrated.”

What do you think?

    it is true

    • johnblacksad

      booooooooo

  • YouKnowWhat…..

    “Twerk, Miley, Miley, Miley, Twerk!!!”

  • junj03

    All I have to say is that he is 100% correct but you can
    blame Jay Z for the music he is putting out now, blame the people.

    The people want this type of music, this is what they buy.
    If Jay tries to do music that “changes the world” hes not going to sell.

    • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      weak boy, versus and beach is better would end ur career in LIFE and they was the shortest interludes!

    • Jun you missed the whole point, “THE PEOPLE ARE BRAINWASHED INTO LIKING THIS GAR-BAGE ON THE RADIO”

    • Truth Powell

      Thing is Jay-Z *thinks* he’s changing the world. He thinks Picasso Baby is that next shit. He’s there playing monopoly with AZ and Biggie in the Dead Presidents video. He was never the rawest dude when he came out. I think the fact he blew up from that circle is a fluke.

      I remember a time when Wu Tang went platinum so I don’t know. If you condition the people to only eat chicken McNuggets, it doesn’t mean they dont want real chicken breast, you just gotta make it available to them again.

      • DJ7

        Agreed….I remember when I 1st got the white label ep on flatbush ave from his street team back in 96…before Reasonable Doubt…wasn’t that impressed because I thought his voice sounded funny even though I was quite famaliar with dude as a rapper amongst other activities…being that Big was the top cat at the time Jay just struck me as a fake version of him…same subject matter b.u.t. that voice…only explanation I gather is that my ears weren’t trained to his frequencies yet….RD wasn’t that deal people today say it was when it 1st dropped either… @ the time I was spinning overseas as well as stateside and the reception it received when I played a track or two wasn’t this floor filling phenomenon as if I dropped those same tracks today…that’s gotta tell you something

      • Truth Powell

        What carried In My Lifetime and Dead Presidents was the beat. I remember seeing the Ain’t No Nigga video and feeling like he was corny. He didn’t seem cool. Then Hard Knock Life came out which was his worst album up to that point and all of a sudden he’s supposed to be the best. I was like huh?

      • DJ7

        exactly…**scratches head in confusion**

      • Casor_G

        Both of you hating @$$ chumps need to shut up. Reasonable Doubt was a classic and Hard Knock Life is what solidified his commercial crossover. Now he has sold out and become corny at this point, but to deny his greatness in his prime only makes you clowns look pathetic

      • Truth Powell

        I love Reasonable Doubt. The Primo and Ski beats are amazing on that. I was in 9th grade and got that shit when it came out. But you can’t deny that in the company of Biggie, Naz, AZ, Mobb Deep, and Wu at the time Jay came off weak as a man in comparison.

        you have a strange definition of pathetic.

      • Casor_G

        Came off weak?!?! Mobb Deep is trash and is known for actually getting “mobbed deep” not being “mobb deep” and I hate to say it but nobody outside the east coast is feeling the WU except asians and europeans…and not many of them either….AZ was nice, but every album got weaker and weaker just like Nas untilbeef with Jay brought his ass back to life.

        First you say eh was corny and a fluke, now you are saying you love the album.

        Go back and listen to Reasonable Doubt. Listen and hear his words. Dude predicted this shit from the beginning..”If you ain’t talking about LARGE money then what’s the point?”

        Like I said, dude fell off at this point, but you got to crown him top 3 of all time. Anything else is uncivilized

      • johnblacksad

        to me he’s just Top 1 of all time…

      • Truth Powell

        yeah he came off weak….you’re talking about 1996 or 2013 here? I stated my points very clearly. Go back and read them. Dudes just wanna argue to argue like bitches man cmon

      • DJ7

        Grow up lil buddy…name calling will not gain you any “net cred”…as for RD being a classic…If you took the time out to read my comment instead of responding emotionally you’d see that I said “when it came out” no one was screaming classic…it took time for Jay’s voice to grow on me…key word being me…your opinion has no bearing on my decision making process…if you took the same stance, you’d be better off as well

  • ant662

    i agree with him i listen to his music but when he does something that is dumb or i dont agree with and voice my opinions, boy the stans come out like crazy at a psych ward.

    • Truth Powell

      the brainwashed sheep are always rabid

  • Nice Cube

    the second story i heard this morning with one of the old heads being salty about jay-z’s career. although what is saying is true in the case of lil wayne annoying ass voice, i disagree when it comes to hov. when hov drops wack shit, the people let him know. just like we told ‘yeezus’ to fall back &when told we told jay that ‘kingdom come’ wasn’t it. Hov is hot, right now. MCHG is fire. right now. show some love and stop being mad that the younger generations FAR surpassed your levels of fame, notoriety, and success. tis all.

    • You Got Me Hott Out Here!!

      Have you heard MCHG? It’s total Garbage.

      • Nice Cube

        i thought that when i listened to it first. then i listened again. it got some fire on there ALONG WITH some bullshit songs i skip every time. overall that shit is iight. it’s no vol.3 or nothing, but its cool.

      • Ronald Allen Booher

        That is how literal brainwashing works…hear something until your natural opinions change to like something.

      • Nice Cube

        right. thats is how it works. however, thats not what happened to me bruh lol. there were songs i liked when i first heard the album that made me give it another listen. if i said the whole shit fire track 1 to the end….thats a wash. not what i said.

      • johnblacksad

        i don’t give a fcuk what these n!ggaz think… whole shit is fire, track 1 to the end!

        (in reality i liked 5 or 6 songs at first listen… now the WHOLE album bumps… matter fact, bumpin rite now… “Paris where we been, pard’ my parisian…”)

    • speedy37

      Jay-z is 45 years old he is a old head.

  • DJ7

    Say word…he’s just echoing what has been said a million times over…not mad @ the brotha at all

    • Truth Powell

      but in all fairness you were cosigning ‘twerk it’ a week ago

      • Nemo hos

        Hahaha got em

      • DJ7

        Feel better now? Even though you’re jumping to conclusions…smh

      • That was kinda funny though :)

        LOLocaust @DJ_7:disqus cosigning “Twerk it!”

        Bawahahahaaaaa!

      • DJ7

        I had to lol at myself too on that one…Dave Chappelle style (hahahahaha….hewlmmmmmmm…mad face again) as stated in my defense (although a mighty mighty mighty limp one)…it wasn’t so much the song b.u.t. the sound…kinda reminded me of an old school dancehall vibe/sound…his voice that is…not the lyrics…as they were vintage basura…on an extremely humid day…with the lid open …after the cats ran through it…leaving the best of the worst

      • LMAO!

        In your defense….at least the lid was off!

        SMDH @ LOL~N (*Then Mad Face )

      • DJ7

        Had to regain the face B…also after further investigation…I never co signed that track…what transpired out of that conversation was an open ended question left unanswered…my initial response was to a fellow DJ and then Truth came through at the tail end to which no one responded…therefore it’s not possible to be charged guilty of said offenses…I believe I can settle this one out of court…no lawyer nor trial needed…

      • Ok, I’ll see if you can plead out to “Liking it.”….and ARD ( Accelerated Rehabilitation Disposition ) If you stay out of trouble…it will come off your archive after 6 months, but if you co sign Rick Fawlse / Justin Timberlake etc….you can be recharged.

        >>Charge is Nolle Prosse

      • DJ7

        bwahahahahahaha…spit out every bit of cheap bee…uh hum…beverage all over my keyboard @ the thought of co signing either of these two cats

      • J.Erick

        LOL got his azz lol

      • DJ7

        Touché….In my defense (as weak as it may be) clearly that was coming from a club DJ perspective and I was defending a “sound” as opposed to actual lyrics b.u.t. point taken

      • Truth Powell

        lol I had to say it man sorry

      • DJ7

        No need to be sorry fam…good check…Like a G I owned up to it…It’s just that I’m a bit biased to the whole reggae sound b.u.t. for the record, I did not co-sign the track, just questioned DJ ANTO on what kind of DJ he was and his opinion as this being the WORST song ever…

      • Casor_G

        You’ve been exposed you fraud

      • DJ7

        Exposed??? Fraud??? Ok sir, you have 0 clue as to what transpired in the conversation yet want to add on with childish accusation….good day to you as well sir!!

  • lol Run DMC stay salty at the fact they ain’t relevant anymore…
    Notice how ALL the 80s rappers are salty at younger ones for “disrespecting the genere”? lmao…Run DMC are NOT hip-hop authority…90’s rappers like Nas, Jay-Z, 2Pac,Outkast, Rakim, etc. should be, they layed down the norm and foundation of modern hip-hop which people try to copy NOT Run DMC

    • jamesla

      And WHO was Before nas jay z 2 pac and them? Learn history… Its like you saying george Clinton dont do anything to rap Music..

      • I know the history man….so how does that disprove me?.

        I’m saying Rakim, Melle Mel, Slick Rick, Big Daddy Kane, PE and most 90s rappers made it bigger/deeper than it really was. As soon as they came on the scene everybody forgot about Run DMC because they were way better. Cmon son, Run DMC are vets but they are only party raps… Thats like saying Kurtis Blow has a say in the future of hip-hop…

      • DJ7

        All those acts you mentioned were 80’s rappers fam..as for people forgetting about RUN DMC…Who actually? Only party raps? Really? You are speaking on the same RUN DMC that made 8 Million Stories (alongside Kurtis Blow)…Hard Times…It’s Like That…Sucker MC…ect…right? So much for “knowing the history”…It’s true that they might not have been headlining tours in the latter years b.u.t. true hip hoppers everywhere never forgot about the forefathers….even til this day…it’s the brainwashed culture brotha Darrell is speaking on that’s forgot or fail to recognize…ijs

      • Like he didn’t see CB4, knowing good & c*t dam well RUN DMC inspired his favorite fake rapper!

      • jamesla

        Man you dont know your rappers… Well. Not everyone can be fortune to be born in the 70’s and see the progress i see. Before there was a message in Music. Now its mostly just bragging..

  • Truth Powell

    Run DMC and all those other dudes was hard music. It’s like punk rock for the hood. Rebellious music. That Holy Grail track with Justin Timberlake is soft shit. It’s a whole different mental angle so I see where he’s coming from.
    It’s like Chuck Berry to Hootie and the Blowfish.

  • therealjjohnson

    The title is a bit misleading. Though he did say Jay’s name i didn’t take this as a personal attack on him. What he said is true. People are programmed to like Jay. It doesn’t mean his music isn’t up to par it just means there’s a machine behind him.

    • johnblacksad

      People are naturally programmed to like anyone who keeps winning victory after victory after victory after victory…

      • Baejae

        Get off JayZ nuts damn MCHG IS NOT THAT HOTT

      • johnblacksad

        It’s bigger than MCHG

  • Everything this brother saying is true, but you watch the Jay-Z, Lil Brain clones tear him apart in this thread. I can’t say these artist today don’t realize the power they have, because they do. They just don’t give a rat’s ass about what they feed the sheep.

    • PBM1986

      Well said, bruh…

    • johnblacksad

      Wasn’t Run DMC the first one to get Adidas to fork over a million for wearing their sh!t? Now they wanna be salty….

      anybody lookin at Jay-Z like he is the problem is the problem!

  • NiggasareREALLYNIGGERZ

    ill seed is just perpetuating drama. All of these hip hop news feeds and media people do that. Once the gloves comes off and the shots are fired and one falls. The hip hop media be quick to say “stop the violence” we are killing each other. Stop misleading the public with false information.

    there’s a difference between hip hop and gangsta rap.. hip hop is positive music and gangsta rap is the negative brainwashing that the radio promotes. if you want hip hop, that ended in the 90s.

  • Dubz

    Its crazy, even when something is hot, we are “programmed” to hate. It’s so easy to put Jay-Z name on a rant to get peoples attention. If you look at Jay-Z and say “He is the reason why black people can’t prosper” something is wrong with you…There is truly crap music out there that is really brainwashing people but because if you said there name no one will listen you have to put a name like Jay-Z on there to get your point across.

        he keep glorifying the shit. he know bullshit sell so he keeps rapping about bullshit. look i know you Jay’s hypeman or something but open your eyes. I’m not taking anything away from his skills but use it for some good. He could be trying to uplift some instead of using the same tired raps about what designer shit he got.

        Reasonable Doubt was dope because that was Jay when he was hungry and was doing it cause he loved it. Now he doing it to stay rich and in the spotlight. As a artist you should be growing and I dont see that with Jay. He should be using his influence in a positive way while he still has that influence.

      i lost respect for all these ‘legends’…

      • Negro Peligro

        I agree with you on that though. I’m tired of 90’s niggas acting like they control Rap HIphop whatever you want to call it. STFU AND SIT DOWN. DOC don’t even listen to rap or hiphop hasn’t for like a decade.

  • johnblacksad

    Dr Dre once said “fcuk rap, you can have it back”

    Jay been hustlin since day one and never hid it… “You can’t knock the hustle”… a hustle, a fcuking hustle… that’s it… “i’m the realest to run it, i just happen to rap”… “hustle caine, hustle clothes or hustle music, but hustle hard at any hustle that you pick” damn, when do we let the brother breathe?! It’s ya’ll that are expecting “great rap” “real hip hop” or whatnot.. …fcuk rap, fcuk real hip hop, fcuk all that sh!t… Hov just doin him

    Dislike Hov all you want, but don’t call me wack or tasteless or brainwashed for fcukin with Jay Z.

    Numbers don’t lie, check the scoreboard! (sales, number of albums, number of number one albums, sold out shows, world tours, revenue, number of fans, radioplay, power moves, LYRICS, beauty of wife… i mean… damn… hit me with one, just one other hip hop artist that checks all those boxes and rank high in all of em… i won’t wait for an answer)

      I rides with Jay all day everyday. But for anybody to say this MCHG is a classic or even good. Is smoking J you know what I’m saying I ain’t talking weed either you know what I mean. Its really not that good. I feel you on that is it hiphop vs rap. Really what does that mean is hiphop or rap. Where’s that counsel at. I mean DMC that don’t even listen to hiphop or rap was reaching. Jay Z had some gems ON MCHG. But overall the album is just not good. Picasso Baby was horrible. Its not an easy listen at all. D boy drug dealer look millionaire. With Nas. He flowed but it just wasn’t that good. THESE DUDES REALLY NEED TO GET BACK TO SOUL BEATS. Frank Ocean song was horrible. It was too flamboyant no man in it for me. It felt like Frank Ocean. Liberaci shit. La Familia was wack. Crown had some decent stuff but it was wack. Rick Ross joint was wack. JT Holy Grail was wack off topic just didn’t have no feeling. The one about his daughters was wack. Bunch of recycled nonsense. I mean if anybody else put this out you wouldn’t ride to it. FUTW was wack. HEAVEN to me was so off topic. I like the Miley Cyrus one and Open Letter cause dude gave you something new fresh lyrics and thought provoking. The rest of the album was bath water Yeezus. You know how they made bath tub gin during prohibition that’s what MCHG felt like somebody poured Yeezus in the tub and made 16 songs out of it.

  • johnblacksad

    “Jay-Z ain’t hot”…fact or asshole? sounds more like an opinion to me, and you know what they say about those…

    let’s bring out the stats, the damn stats… how many albums Run DMC have? how many number one albums do they have? how many albums have they sold altogether? what’s the average crowd number at their shows? how many fans do they have compared to Jay? how many basketball teams have they brought to Brooklyn? do they own their masters? how many Hublot watches do they have? how many artists did they sign that went and did platinum?

    tired of arguin… fcuk opinions from now on… #FACTSONLY

    • BruceLeRoyGlow

    • Negro Peligro

    DMC STFU and go flop with them comics u tryna push. Yesterday it was a crackhead coon, today its a weirdo. Damn, Jay STAY winning

  • FootUpYaAss

    DMC spoke the truth and he wasn’t particularly dissin JayZ. The point that he was making is that nowadays radio and video stations tell fans whats supposedly hot whereas in the past it was the streets that dictated what was hot. The radio has always been used to force bullshit commercialized music on people while the good music is kept underground. One of the biggest problems with hiphop/rap music is that record labels and radio stations control the music which is why there is no variety in musical styles anymore. The industry consciously promotes nonsense music and neglects the songs that have substance and meaning so that blacks will keep actin ignorant. Even so called hiphop websites promote the negativity of rap and helps to the divide and conquering of black folks. A prime example is how the title of this article insinuates that DMC is beefin with JayZ. I personally feel that every song that JayZ ever had on radio rotation was far from his best and meaningful songs.

  • best_believe

    Did he try to change the world by making everybody drink. Cause he drank solo much Old E that he almost died. You hardly saw him without one

  • ile315r

    I can’t believe people really can still defend Jay… I mean this is a guy that believes his “presence is charity enough”… Thats the guy yall saying is uplifting the culture?

    • Dubz

      The movement for the black culture is different then it was when DMC was around…we are no longer looking to white America and asking them to accept us…the movement now should be teaching our youth about “self responsibility” work hard and “you” can succeeded. That is what I learn from listening to Jay-Z music.

      • D. Rose in the paint

        I agree, we just need to deliver that message in a better manner than through outlets such as rap

    • johnblacksad

      Yeah his presence in charity… in the name of hip hop, he crushed Elvis and took his record… just so you can tell all these white folks that love to look down on you that hip hop, despite how bad they try to degrade us, crushed their god Elvis.

      What better can you do for the culture?

      I know some white people that love to hate hip hop… especially in France… motherfcukers wanna act like hip hop will never be on Rolling Stones or Metallica or whatnot level… and i love to remind them Jay’s 12 number one albums, and i love to see them burn inside… i’m like fcuk your Elvis, fcuk your Rolling Stones, fcuk your Led Zeppelin, fcuk your Elton John, fcuk them all… next stop is The Beatles! I hope by then ya’ll n!ggaz will give it to Jay

      “I’m out here fighting for you, please don’t increase my stress load”

      • Negro Peligro

        Real talk Jay Z never made no Elton John hit. Piano Man reaches way more people than anything on Jay Z catalog. If Elvis was to drop today with his music. Jailhouse Rock would leave sales looking like JAY Z WHO. I mean the instrumentation and the audience Elvis could reach with his music Jay Z can’t do that. He living off larger population. More access to albums. I love JAY Z but elvis he is not. Same for Kanye and all these DJ’s they could never be Quincy Jones, They can’t reach that wide of an audience with their music. I mean its not even about sampling MamaSayMamasamamakoosa was sampled from an African group. I mean hiphop has to know its place. Even Criss Cross and MC Hammer reach audiences Jay Z never will. Its like Drake saying he better than Jay Z cause he getting more awards and accolades and breaking records. Litterally thouogh Drake music really never been on a level of BLUE PRINT 1. Not ever. You drop that first time today GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS would go DIAMOND IN A YEAR.

      • Weedras

        you know it’s not really about reaching an audience right? it’s about building a fan base… what happened to Kriss Kross, what happened to Hammer when the hits weren’t reaching? and Elvis was Popular in time when blacks were victimized.. i guarantee if Elvis was in an era such as this and he was up against many of the black musicians of that he wouldn’t have been so famous and not to mention he stole other’s music.. if any props is to be given send it the Beatles way… 80% of Elvis’ songs weren’t written by him…

      • elvis is dead lol…

        and lets be honest all those bands actually MADE their music and plaed their music and its actually better music. jay would love to sample on those guys… those guys didnt sample, they made that shit!!! thats the difference.

      • johnblacksad

        I’m not arguin any of it, I’m just askin : where their 12 number one albums at?

        I mean, i’m not inventing that sh!t… Jay-Z got more number one albums than all these people that you said make better music… I’m not giving my opinion, I’m stating that Jay has more number one albums… that’s it.

        I’m suspecting you are like some of my white friends that are mad as hell Jay is ahead of all these names.

        Who would have thought a hip hop artist would have more number one albums than The Rolling motherfcuking Stones or Elvis?

        If ya’ll like and support hip hop, the culture, ya’ll shoud be proud as fcuk… but ya’ll hate for Hov supersedes anything, and that’s why… again… allow me to quote the great Hov : “if you can’t respect that, your whole perspective is wack” simple.

      • dude its rap, its easy to make. its nothing like writting actual music and perfecting it. and while he has more #1 albums, hes also released more albums then alot of these guys, and yet he is no where close to selling the most amount of albums, new kids on the block has sold more albums then jayz.. lol

      • Weedras

        sampling is a cornerstone of hip hop…. and it is known that Elvis stole a few black artists records and released them as his own… rapping is an art as much as rock ‘n’ roll… and many such as Elvis didn’t write much of their music other’s did… i’m sure when producers are in a studio they aren’t just taking someone elses work and passing it off as their own…

  • BulldogCG

    I believe his sentiments are true, but Jay the wrong target, that is a publicity move. I mean with artists our there like Chief Keef and Waka Flocka, hell even this Riff Raff MF be in commercials, and you want to point at Jay? no offence to any of their fans, why even point at Jay like that? his purpose would be better served by pointing at true ignorance.

    • Dubz

      100% agreed…the problem is…you but Chief Keef, Waka Flocka, and especially Riff Raff and no one will pay attention. So you throw Jay-Z name just to get hits…it sends a mix message and it divides the people….older generation will side with DMC just cause that is who they grew up with…others will defend Jay-Z…instead of actually talking about the problem the message is mixed up because you do it the lazy way.

      • BulldogCG

        fa sho.

  • Richard Savage

    I can see what he’s saying but honestly i like Jay because of his actual talent, his flow, lyrical ability, and storytelling. I mean American Gangster was a movie on record, not too many artists today do that. Kendrick Lamar was the most recent. And by the way most of Jay-z’s radio records i tend to dislike especially since that Kingdom Come album in 2005. I think the last Jay radio record i really liked was H to the Izzo. But i agree the radio does program people to love alot of these artists…. LIKE WAYNE, LIKE Ross, Ciara (that damn body party or party body, porta potty, whatever song gets under my skin lol)

    So i can see where he is coming from…just not on the Hov part cuz Hov still gets busy on the mic even at age 40 something and he does it 10x’s better than ANY of these new boys out here

  • jacksjus

    He’s makes a whole lot of sense, however the fanboys will respond negatively because ignorance is bliss.

    • johnblacksad

      “Jay Z ain’t hot”…. yeah, makes a lot of sense…

      you said ignorance was bliss right?

      • jacksjus

        Not to be taken out of context Jay not being hot is his opinion. I’m looking more at what he said about the music that is being forced into the masses right now. There are no longer outlets for a variety of HipHop in the main stream. Sure there are plenty of underground rappers with substance but in this day and age they can’t win.

  • Negro Peligro

    Yo I cosign this album isn’t that good. I mean most of the lines are recycled, not that clever, or not on topic, or just some noise I don’t want to hear. BUT JAY DOESN’T GET Radio play. I mean the last real single that got alot of radio play was Kanye and Jay Z Otis Redding song. Black Album was the last real radio spinned album. None of these new songs are rotating on the radio at all.

    • DJ7

      N*ggaz In Paris actually was the last joint…can’t forget the Kendrick remix joint…they’re blowing up the Holy Grail joint with the white kid right now as I type this…must just be the market you’re in or you simply don’t tune in to radio like most of us

    • Weedras

      you’re definitely not listening to the radio.. and i’m not an avid radio listener but last two weeks i’ve been to boston, DC, PA, DE and VA and all the urban stations there have his songs in rotation…

  • RBG

    i agree with the statement that people are brainwashed in to liking him. back in the 90’s a person interviewed him, and he tried to say that reasonable doubt was a classic. the interviewer didn’t agree and jay z started to try and intimidate the guy by looking him dead in his eye and asking him questions. since then jay has been on a campaign to get people to believe reasonable doubt was a classic. i was a dj when his album dropped, and nobody cared. his story wasn’t even believable. women said he was ugly. even when he was with original flavor he was rhyming like das efx with the tiggedy riggedy raps.

    • D. Rose in the paint

      BUT Reasonable Doubt IS a classic…150%! One of the greatest album in
      the history of rap! And before you dare discredit me let me establish my
      familiarity with the genre. You are talking to a man who has been
      listening to rap since 85. I’ve heard classic albums that the average
      fan has zero clue about over the last 30 years from Beastie Boys, PE,
      X-Clan, Poor Righteous Teachers, Beatnuts, AZ, Qwest The Madd Lad, The
      Nonce, Artifacts, Pharcyde to Company Flow, McGruff, the list is
      infinite….in other words I know my hip-hop, and I know it well….i
      was around when Reasonable Doubt dropped and pretty much nobody had a
      clue about Jay…as a young hip-hop head I was blown away by Jay’s
      lyrical superiority and how he was on par if not better than my favorite
      emcee at the time ……Nas! The fact that I was even having this
      argument with myself and I started listening to “Reasonable Doubt” more
      than “It Was Written” which had dropped around the same time….let me
      know that Jay was the next big thing….it was only a matter of time. I
      told everybody I knew about that tape. Few albums have truly BLOWN ME
      AWAY…and that was one of them…its a unique album, one of a kind, you
      have NEVER heard an album from the perspective of the seasoned drug
      distributor who dealt with weight ..especially BACK THEN! And one who
      had the credibility to prove he actually lived this. But thats not what
      made the album dope, it was the fact that this album had a conscious,
      soul, and depth. He showed remorse, sorrow, and pain all while
      celebrating life. Its a lot going on in that album, its a real grown man
      album…its about choices and dealing with consequences of those
      choices. Its always good to hear about life from someone who lived a
      full life. And thats what Reasonable Doubt is…and oh yea the lyrics
      are AMAZING!

        if you like the album thats fine. i’m not trying to persecute you for that. but if reasonable doubt blew you away i have no more that i can say. i’m not taking away from his talents. i just wasn’t feeling that album when it dropped. still don’t care for it.

      • johnblacksad

        Can I live? one of the realest dopest hip hop songs ever… IMO

      • RBG

        from that album i liked dead presidents 2 and brooklyns finest. can i live was ok. i wont go as far as saying it was one of the best song in hip hop history but i will say it was one of the best songs of his personal history.

    • johnblacksad

      His flow on Reasonable Doubt has nothin to do with his back then flow on Big L’s MVP or Mic Geronimo’s The Natural… makes me wonder if you ever listened to the album…

      “since then jay has been on a campaign to get people to believe reasonable doubt was a classic.”…wowzers… what a statement!

      • RBG

        just because i didn’t like the album you question whether i listened to it? as a dj i bought 2 copies of it. so cut it out. as a dj i have purchased much music that i don’t like, but it’s the business. you aint gonna brainwash me in to listening to his album from your or anybodys point of view. if you think it’s a classic kudos to you.

      • johnblacksad

        Nah, with all due respect, I doubted you because you said some about ‘tiggedy wiggedy’ Das Efx -like raps… thta was before Reasonable Doubt… there’s no tiggedy wiggedy raps on RD… (Maybe a lil perfume of it on 22twos but that’s it)

      • @Real_SirJamie

        There’s some on both versions of “Dead Presidents” too.

      • TheOnlyCoop

        But it’s not like the Original Flavor Jay. Jay has always been improving his flow. Most rappers are just stuck.

      • TheOnlyCoop

        On that same note you shouldn’t try to brainwash others into not liking it. Kind of like DJ’s are a dime a dozen and plenty aren’t as good as they think.

      • God Body

        This was indeed by far the most stupid statement I’ve seen yet in this debate. One comment on a blog does not deem a brainwashing attempt. It’s just his opinion. Whats more noted is that you seem to have a problem with people having a different opinions. The real debate is whether or not Jay Z is good without the PR machine? Some say he is some say he isn’t. We’ll never really know because Jay Z’s PR machine ain’t gonna stop anytime soon. Some see the Emperor without no clothes and other adore his every step. Make of it what you will.

      • Weedras

        my thing is… ppl are using Gaga, Eminem, Taylor swift etc. to say if Jay goes up against them he wouldn’t have sold well but has anyone ever peeped the publicity machine behind theses artists…. it doesn’t always have to be about your publicity machine though example.. Robin thicke dude is signed to Star Trak and released a song with little fan fare but a lil controversy has garnered the artist a free publicity machine… and not to mention the song is catchy..

      • dee

        OK but when you making this comment you talking about me because i was the one who made that comment but why go on somebody else post and try to twist it ? WHEN I said GAGA,EM, SWIFT and would he have a number one album against one of them ON A TUESDAY because number one albums was the topic on that post… NOT “if Jay goes up against them he wouldn’t have sold well” thats YOUR STATEMENT that wasnt even what i said…..ALL im saying is have jayz done a kanye vs 50 release or a j cole vs kanye release thats all im saying… I wasnt dissing jay or hating whatever but i see none of jayz hardcore fans wants to keep it real and give me a simple YES or NO…. YOU guys keep talking about other shit publicity machine in shit like wtf are you talking about…. EXAMPLE if somebody say who would win between JORDAN vs LEBRON you would give me a simple answer BUT because its JAYZ and he cant lose in yall eyes and he does no wrong yall DANCE around the question but this is exactly what DMC is talking about

      • Weedras

        dude i was just adding to what God Body said… yes i mentioned what you said… but nowhere since we’ve had this convo have said anyone is hating or alluded to such….

        i’m not a Jay Z hardcore fan but as i said earlier you’re just speculating.. that’s like saying a team is going to win a game when you the game hasn’t or has never been played… and you bring up Swift, Em and Gaga..

        do you not expect to talk about how their respective labels roll out all the big stops to make sure their album gets maximum numbers.. dude this isn’t about the artists per se its about the labels and how they operate to get maximum profit and returns on their investment in their artists… so of course the publicity machine behind each artist has to be discussed its a part of their brand…

        you can’t talk about sales and not discuss marketing and promotion… once you going into sale then we’re talking business so why ask what we’re talking about? and for Jordan vs Lebron it couldn’t be a simple answer because we’d have to discuss stats… that’s what a debate is about its not about yes or no simply its a about making an argument and backing it up… you cannot discuss aspects of the music industry and leave out another when it all goes hand in hand…

      • dee

        but you didnt mention what I said those were your words not mines the topic was jay having 12 number one albums and I said its easy to have a number one album if you drop the day where its no competition thats why i mention em and gaga but thats goes for them to

      • Weedras

        ok i get you but there’s always competition its not like ppl are gonna say ok this guy is the only artist coming out today let me go buy his album just because… look how many artistes have come out against no one but a few compilation albums and didn’t sell well… so whether it be Jay-z, Usher, Em, Gaga or Swift their accomplishments is still an accomplishment… there’s no discount to it unless you can prove the label bought all the albums… and that’s a whole other debate in itself..

    • TheOnlyCoop

      I remember when RD dropped and the key was that other rappers respected his skill level. I remember the shows in NY and people were going crazy. And you seem to forget that RD wasn’t even on a major. All of the other major rappers were and they didn’t get that type of love. I’d like to see that interview you saw, hop it wasn’t like the Kane has aids interview.

      • RBG

        please. check the back of the album again. jay signed himself to his label but they partnered with another label owned by universal to release it. not taking away from his accolades, but i notice you and someone else talking about new york, or the tri state…sounded like a local buzz to me.

      • TheOnlyCoop

        That’s the reissued album. If you look at the original RD album the first single was via “PayDay” but the album was thru a deal with Priority which had a distribution deal with EMI not Universal. They moved on from there because they weren’t getting the support they wanted. It may have sounded like local buzz to you but it was more than that. Remember RD sold 500k the first year with no help from the major label. That’s more than local buzz. And Tri-State buzz is still more than just local buzz. Hell I remember when TI started to blow up off of his mix tape in the ATL before he had a deal and the CD man on the corner couldn’t keep them. That was nothing but local buzz.

    • Weedras

      Reasonable Doubt was an independent album that was funded by Dame, Jay, Biggs and some others.. the i don’t if you’re from NY but it was a hit ’round the city and tristate area… and fellow NY rappers gave the album props… you can’t sit there and tell me that Jay brain washed dudes from the Wu to give his album props… really? what happened to people having the ability to use their ears in tandem with their brains ans decipher what appeals to them.. is that brain washing or liking something…

      • RBG

        where did you see me type anything pertaining to wu? don’t add your analogies to my statements. i’m dealing with the topic at hand. i used my ability to use my ears in tandem with my brain and deciphered that reasonable doubt does not appeal to me.

      • Weedras

        lol!i gave you an example, use your brain to analyze and see that it was an example… members of Wu tang are known to be very vocal about certain like them and Biggie… they keep it real so if they were giving Jay props for RD it must have been good to them you not liking doesn’t speak for a majority does it.. and it doesn’t make the majority brainwashed either… smh..

      • RBG

        i use my brain how i see fit. i repeat. don’t apply your analogies to my comment. i’m dealing with the topic at hand. talking that “keep it real” nonsense. do you know them personally? what is real for them? i’m keeping it real to myself. and who are you to speak for others? the majority? the majority of who? enlighten me…

      • Weedras

        lol! you sure aren’t using your brain properly how am i speaking for them when members such as Ghostface, and Raekwon have come out speaking of the albums quality and commending it… yo’re keeping it real to yourself, yet you brought up an interview that supposedly happen… then you alleged that Jay Z has been campaigning to get ppl to like RD… you have a bunch of info that you cannot prove yet you’re keeping it real with yourself lol! why use examples then if you’re speaking for your standpoint and your standpoint only. smh…

But I’ll call him out when I see some bullshit. I couldn’t care less about how many idiots think he’s a hero, he’s not and neither is chuck d.

Hip hop started as a multi-lane highway and now that very same highway is exclusive to the popular artists. Most of the people don’t care about being control and told what to like. For example, Lean wit it, rock wit it had become popular and was accompanied by a dance, the same for a lot of these songs. They become hits and you do the dances then a new one comes out and forget about the other. You don’t know what you like. When I like something it’s in my catalogue forever and I’ll listen to it whenever I want to. Most of the artist today won’t have longevity. They’ll rape the culture via the illiterate and unwise, make their money and become distant memories. You’re paying for mediocrity and paying full price which is absurd. Every time someone dislikes something that’s media driven then they’re “haters”, not someone with a valid opinion or have a critic ear but hate the money these artists are making. Disgusting. Money drives most people because that’s what they lust after disappointingly so they live vicariously through these artists and love when they brag about what you helped them buy. Album sales aren’t indicative to success, most of the greatest album never reach the status they deserve for various reasons and gain notoriety later in artists career. Stop riding the artist, they’re not taking you with them so they don’t need you defending their music with your infuriating remarks towards others. Now everybody’s the “big homey” and “he’s making money”; who says that there’s no room for nonconformist?

    • johnblacksad

      Forget album sales… don’t act like you don’t hear me, there’s plenty of other stats for you if you want to dismiss his albums sales… (wonder why in the first place, but it doesn’t matter)… like i said, check the scoreboard, there’s plenty of other stats for you if you like : number of albums? number of number one albums? sold out shows? world tours? longevity? stadium crowds?

      Whatchu talkin bout greatest albums never reach the status they deserve and gain notoriety later?! 12 number one albums… so later how? 12 number one albums, i mean each album number one at the time it dropped, not later, zip, nothing… 12 number one albums…. surpassing names like Michael Jackson, Led Zeppelin,The Rolling Stones, Elton John, Phil Collins, Elvis Presley, Janet Jackson…. i mean 12 fcuking number one albums! and you are sitting here talkin bout how ‘we dickride’, how ‘infatuated with his money we are’… you know what?, it makes me terribly sad inside… Jay did this for hip hop… society already don’t like us like that… Jay crushed all these big names in all these other genres (country, rocknroll, you name it…) for ‘us’.
      Do you have any idea how much i love to brag with my white Metallica-loving-friends about Jay’s record… i don’t even think you’re hearing me… We’re supposed to be proud as fcuk about this… he made hip hop bigger than Elvis & The Rolling Stones… but ya’ll n!ggaz always gotta stretch and find a slick reason to dis the ‘big homie’… that’s just wrong, ya’ll not realizin it… whoever said anything about Jay”s money? like, really? how old am I to sit here and be geeked up about another man’s fortune… it’s his accomplishments, all these victories, victory after victory after victory… all in the name of hip hop.

      Like DMX would say, what cha n!ggaz really want?!

      • dee

        12 number one albums means nothing you can easily put out a album the week where its no competition example let jay and em drop the same day you think he will have a number one album? another one put jay up against lady gaga or taylor swift and lets see the out come

      • johnblacksad

        LOL… I give up! “12 number one albums means nothing”… how could I fight that? I’m talking facts, you’re talking “ifs, ands and buts”… sighs

        How many number one albums Lady Gaga AND Taylor Swift combined have?

        Yeah, just what I thought! Miss me please…

      • johnblacksad

        Then how come Eminem doesn’t have 12 number one albums?

        Do you realize what it means or do you let the hate just blind you?

      • dee

        lets get this str8 im not hating on jay at all shit i have most of his albums, eminem dont have 12 albums you and I both know that as well as lady gaga or taylor swift but that wasnt the question you danced around what I asked I said if jay drop the same day as a eminem,gaga or swift will his album be #1?

      • Weedras

        the question can also be reversed and posed would Eminem have hit some of his record sales numbers had he and Jay-z dropped on the same day? you can pose the question but no one has the answer because it has never occurred… anything in discussion will be mere speculation… in order to achieve anything one has to strategize that’s what got Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Buffet, Russell Simmons, The Beatles, Mccartney, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Madonna etc… even Gaga, Taylor Swift etc and those at the labels strategize to achieve the best sales numbers and avoid taking hits when other big artistes from competing labels are releasing… its business but regardless the achievement is great for Rap & Hip Hop especially because the great plagiarist of black music has been dethroned… f**k Elvis

      • dee

        of course we all know that eminem sales wouldnt be effected by jay-z but i do agree its all speculation but if you look at the numbers today and eminem wouldnt be bothered.

      • johnblacksad

        Once again, you’re talkin ‘ifs ands and buts’… i’m telling you Jay got more number one albums than Em, Gaga and Swift combined… nobody told them not to arrange to drop number one albums.

      • dee

        you not understanding the question its no ifs and buts the question is simple if jay drop on the same day as a em,gaga,swift will his album be number one? why is this so hard for you to answer? and you know im not talking about combined you still dancing around the question

      • ile315r

        Eminem doesn’t have 12 number 1 albums because he isn’t dropping one every year (like Jay-Z) just to stay relevant. And if you want to talk numbers…Eminem has the most records sold of all time for any rap artist, and has dropped half as many albums as Jay. I don’t even like Eminem like that but you keep talking numbers, so I had to throw that out there.

      • johnblacksad

        Tell me something I don’t know… that was a lil bait because I knew one of ya’ll mofos was gonna come at me with “Eminem sold more albums than Jay”… that’s not what I’m arguin… Jay sold a decent amount, enough to not be ashamed when looking at Eminem numbers… Karl Malone scored more points than Michael Jordan too if you wanna take it there.

        But let’s look at all the other numbers now… grammy awards, number one albums, longevity, world tours etc…

        Whoever stopped Eminem from releasing an album every year like Jay-Z did? That’s what i’m askin you to consider… you’re actin like all you need to do is drop an album every year to stay relevant… nobody told Eminem to take ecstasy-hiatuses and go through depression and whatnot…

        Some people sold more albums than Jay, some have been in the game longer, some tour more… etc… but whoelse checks all those boxes and ranks high in all of them? sales, number one albums, longevity, sold out shows etc…

        Please dont act like you’re missing the point

        It’s like you reminding me that Lewis Alcindor scored more points than MJ… i’m not arguin that… check out all of MJ’s other stats tho

      • Guest

        but at the same time you acting like em hasnt done all those things years ago and still jay wasnt world touring like that till he married beyonce but thats a different argument

      • dee

        he not missing the point cause you keep saying jay has more number one albums then em but like he said em wasnt dropping every year to have 12 albums

      • johnblacksad

        Who ever told Em not to drop albums every year? I don’t get this argument.

      • johnblacksad

        Matter fact I jus checked and Jay got 13 of them b!tches… Eminem got like 5 or 6… I bet Eminem, Lady Gaga ad Taylor Swift altogether combined don’t show 13 number one albums… but ya’ll mofos still don’t wanna respect right?! It’s cool… do you

      • johnblacksad

        Whatchu know about hip hop? Miss me please…

    • God Body

      It’s real simple. We are all terrorized by the tyranny of the majority. The majority of people in the world are idiots. Idiots have a bigger say in what is popular than anyone with and individual critical thought. That’s just the reality of our lives. Saying that I think Jay Z is a good emcee. Just not as good as his PR makes him out to be. He’s just aight. The conformist want and need a saviour/hero and he fits the bill that’s all. Real people with individual thoughts who live in a mode of critical thinking can see right through it. Some of Jay Zs song are great, sadly in my opinion most are gargbage, but thats just my opinion. What is sad to see is that his fans cannot tolerate anyone critiqing his music like that and start with the jealous/hate accusations on line like it’s their personal problem that you as an individual does not regard Jay Z as some kind of hero but just another good rapper with some aight songs and a bullshit album.

  • Ojay Juice Henry

    I guess niggas need to get satellite radio because Jay is on rotation at least 5 songs of the MCHG. but personally compared to jay old shyt this album aint that good but really who is as good as there old shit! sometimes you run out of shyt to say. whats the last thing dmc did beside be on some commercials, truth be told most of what he is saying is true but I doubt niggas is brainwashed ask 50 cent..

    • Negro Peligro

      Album is hard ass listen I find my self changing and definitely can’t make it through the whole album with out fast forwarding after about 2 minutes into each song.

      • TheOnlyCoop

        But that’s you. So many get online and make statements like yours and blanket everyone. They complain about the Jay’s PR machine, when in reality they are running their on PR campaign against him. Personally I like the album but can I say it his best? No it’s not, but their are a lot of good albums in his catalog to compete against so I’m good with that.

        I don’t like techno so I don’t listen to it, but I also don’t complain about it to those who do.

      • Weedras

        so i guess you’re proving DMC wrong then.. it’s about ppl’s tastes and not that they’re brainwashed as he says…

  • Thetruth7777

        tf you reply for….smh

    • Weedras

      did you understand what DMC was saying.. cause if you did i don;t think you’d come in saying what you’re saying.. Pac was one to glorify the negativity as much as he spoke about positives… and your post is the perfect example… you’re gonna talk about Pac and you just had to focus on the negatives… smh.. plus most of what you wrote is incoherent…

      • om3n78

        dmc trash and jayz trash….pacs did speak about negative shyt and positives all rappers do…the diffrence is pretty much most rappers positives are for hits and sales there forced 2pac positives are real life and most if not all are still relavent today

      • churchboy2

        PAC was as exploitative as they come. He banked on the image he created for himself. Take that from someone who was an adult when PAC was alive.

        People made him into some sort of Messiah when he died, but that’s not the same cat I remember…

      • bs_hater1

        You are exactly right! I was grown when he died too. He had alot of positive qualities but he definitely was a loud mouth & he always tried to capitalize on every bit of media coverage he got. He lied & embelished several stories once he had certain people around him….

      • Weedras

        respect for this! i tell people that Pac was one of the most contradicting individuals i’ve ever known…

      • digitallife

        How is a person not contradictory when their angle is displaying both sides to a story?

      • Weedras

        its one thing to display both sides of the fence and its a next thing when your actions reflect more negativity than the positives you speak… don’t get me wrong Pac was a great guy, brilliant artist but he was one contradicting mofo.. i can respect what he did overall but ppl make him out to be this savior… i don’t see that at all…

  • Pingback: DMC Thinks People Only Like Jay Z Because of Radio Brainwashing (@S_C_ @thekingdmc)()

  • People are being force to like him, because of his non-stoppable business ethics…We need more people like Jay-Z in the world.

  • digitallife

    I’ve stated this for a long time..Jay-Z is a very talented human being but in hip-hop talent has a shelf life. He spent the extra ten g’s a month to get a good public relations person who buys him into situations he can be photographed with the likes of powerful and legendary individuals..folks being more visual than literate walk away with the belief “Oh Jay-Z is cool with so and so”. If you had 100 g’s to donate to a cause you’d be taking pictures with these people too. All of this is new to the hip-hop public so they celebrate it for the wrong reasons. Same goes for diddy, diddy used Ciroc as his own promotional platform. He’ll pay a rapper 30g’s to do a ciroc photoshoot and one club appearance and comes of looking like he’s the boss. Perception in hip-hop has become everything. Which is why you got rappers who haven’t sold gold yet driving buggatti’s 4 million in debt to a label because the 25 and under crowd cares more about what you are driving and what you shine around your wrist and neck than if you album is worth a damn. Props to Jay-Z for playing the game correct but I don’t like how he tries to sell himself like all this shhh has happened by default just because he’s jay-z…he owes the majority of it to someone else much like actors and athletes do. The hottest actors/actresses are created by p.r. people much like pop stars are.

    • TheOnlyCoop

      It sad that people just can’t give a person credit. People love to say “if BIG and Pac” this or “PR people” did it and so on and so. It sad that people use so much brain power to bring down another person in and intellectual way in and attempt to disguise hate. So basically this is nothing more than intellectually crabs in a barrell.

      • digitallife

        Who is hating, Did I not credit him in regards to what his actual profession is? Are you really that naive to think that P.R. has nothing to do with anything in the entertainment world? How many super talented artists exist in hip-hop but don’t have the same level of coverage/star power as lesser talented artists?

      • TheOnlyCoop

        You did in a backhanded way. For you to look at in any other way is just dishonest. And personally I don’t see very many super talented artist out right now, but things are improving.

      • digitallife

        I really do hope you are joking because if you aren’t bro seriously you may have to re-examine how you appreciate these artists. I am entitled to my opinion whether you agree with it or not but let’s not over look the fact but if i’m wrong explain to me how beyonce and rihanna are bigger stars than Amel Larrieux but she can actually sing, compose and write..So talent in the game means jack shhhh. The only difference is between those examples is Public Relations.

      • TheOnlyCoop

        One thing people need to understand is just because they like chitterlings doesn’t mean that everyone else has to like them and vise versa. There are so many variables it’s crazy. Going by your logic Amerie, Chrisette Michele and Christion should be mega stars right now. Amel is very good, but the thing is some with a PR machine don’t hit just like some with out one do.

    WOW— I SEE THESE DUDES ERASED MY COMMENTS CAUSE THEY WERE ON POINT….

    : SEE RAPPING DUKE

    BY THE 1986 COMPANIES WERE ALREADY MAKING COMMERCIALS WITH RAPPING ANIMALS AND THE SUCH. NO BIGGY.

    BUT—WHEN VANILLA ICE CAME OUT AND OUTSOLD- WHILE DANCING WITH MC HAMMER…. YEAH WE CLOWNED IT HARD.

    LOOK UP THE SONG BY ICE CUBE- True to the Game. Even Cube sold out.

    IT AINT A QUESTION OF BEING SALTY.

    HOW MANY OF YOU GUYS GOT YOUR OWN HOUSE WITH OUT YA MOMMA OR BABIES MOMMA?
    HOW MANY OF YOU GOT 1,000,000,0000 IN THE BANK?

    WHAT DMC SAID WAS RIGHT.

    WE DIDNT HAVE THESE PROBLEMS BUT AT THE AME TIME THEY SHUT CLUBS DOWN CAUSE NGGAS WAS SHOOTIN BUT STILL….

    WE SAID SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

    NONE OF THE PEOPLE YOU CHAMPION SAY NOTHING DO NOTHING AND ARE ABOUT NOTHING…

    SO I GUESS WHEN YOU ARE A WEAKLING, STRENGTH POSITIVITY MAKES YOU TURN YOUR FACE CAUSE YOU CANT LOOK AT THE TRUTH.

    AND WHILE YOU AT IT SLAVES, GIVE BACK YOUR BLACKNESS CARD.

    i like all of jay albums and i’m not brainwashed! at the end of the day music is about what you like and what you can relate to. when jay said “brought my sand to the beach because my beach is better”, i feel that because my girl is badder then all of these chicks that be trying to get at me. when he said “my past aint pretty but my lady is my Mercedes is”, i feel that because i did 8 years for a handgun and 5 oz’s of cook up, so my past aint pretty but my girl is and my Cadillac Deville is ha!. when he say “question everything, question it all until you can’t question no more”, i feel that because that’s the type of dude i am. i question everything i don’t just sit back and believe what the media, or any preacher tries to tell me. when he said “my brothers is my brothers like my brother is, my niggas is my brothers like my mothers kids, not just in good times that’s that sucka shit”, i feel that because that’s how me and my dudes get down. i mean i can go on forever, but my point is music is about what you can relate to, it’s not brainwashing. alot of people don’t like jay because they really can’t relate. they never really been through anything or owned anything, so how could they. they rather listen to that i pop molly all day, i’m a fake gangbanger, i sold 100 keys, i throw racks in the strip club fantasy rap

    I agree with what he’s saying to an extent where everything that’s negative is now glorified… it seems a rapper can’t get famous if he never dealed drugs, got shot or is actually from a ‘hood’, not to mention he has to talk about the typical negative shit rather going back to the days when rappers told stories even from a standpoint of a onlooker without ppl automatically assuming they’re ‘about that life’…. personally though i don’t think ppl are brainwashed to like a certain artist or artists… everyone has their taste we aren’t machines… well not yet… lol!

    Two of my all-time faves ever… But wasn’t DMC in Jay’s Made in America festival just a year ago? And wasn’t it sponsored/commercialized by Budweiser? #jusayin

    • I think the difference he got his sponsors to support his movement not the other way around.

    WOW— I SEE THESE DUDES ERASED MY COMMENTS CAUSE THEY WERE ON POINT….

    I SAT AND THOUGHT ABOUT WHAT THESE SELL OUT DUDES ARE TALKING ABOUT AND I WILL BREAK IT DOWN:

    ORIGINAL RAP STARTED IN 1976
    BY 1983 IT HAD ALREADY BEEN GIMMICKED OUT
    : SEE RAPPING DUKE

    BY THE 1986 COMPANIES WERE ALREADY MAKING COMMERCIALS WITH RAPPING ANIMALS AND THE SUCH. NO BIGGY.

    BUT—WHEN VANILLA ICE CAME OUT AND OUTSOLD- WHILE DANCING WITH MC HAMMER…. YEAH WE CLOWNED IT HARD.

    LOOK UP THE SONG BY ICE CUBE- True to the Game. Even Cube sold out.

    IT AINT A QUESTION OF BEING SALTY.
    THATS ALL YOU DUDES SAY. OLD HEADS IS SALTY.
    NAH DOG, I GET MONEY I TRAVEL I SEE LIFE.

    MUSIC TO ME WAS ABOUT LISTENING AND HEARING THINGS I IDENTIFY WITH..

    I WONDER HOW MANY OF YOU FAKE DUDES EVER MURDERED ANYONE?
    HOW MANY OF YOU DUDES DID 25 YEARS FOR DRUG POSSESSION?
    HOW MANY OF YOU GUYS GOT YOUR OWN HOUSE WITH OUT YA MOMMA OR BABIES MOMMA?
    HOW MANY OF YOU GOT 1,000,000,0000 IN THE BANK?

    TELL ME HOW MANY OF YOU??!!!

    TELL YOU WHAT: DUDES THATS HURT AND OLD ARE DUDES WHO CANT GET LAID CANT GET MONEY OR USSY.

    I GET THAT PLUS MORE…

    BUT IT DONT MAKE ME BETTER TO HANG IT IN THE NEXT MANS FACE.
    WE GOT TRAYVON WE GOT A LOT OF STUFF HAPPENING IN THE WORLD
    AND YOU WANT TO FOLLOW A DUDE WHO RAPS ABOUT LIVING A LIFESTYLE DEVOID OF SOUL AND AWARENESS..

    THATS WHO YOU FOLLOW? A MONKEY AND HIS HANDLERS MAKE SURE YOU BUY HIS ALBUM.

    FOR ANY OF YOU YOUNG PUNK DUDES TO SAY ANY OF WHAT YOU ARE SAYING IS BULLSHlT.

    YOU KNOW WHY?
    CAUSE YOU USSSY.
    YOU HAVE NO HEART AND YOUR BLACKNESS IS DETIRMED BY YOU ASIAN AND WHITE FRIENDS.

    AND YOUR PARENTS ARE STUPID CAUSE THEY DIDNT EDUCATE YOU.
    WHAT DMC SAID WAS RIGHT.

    WE DIDNT HAVE THESE PROBLEMS BUT AT THE AME TIME THEY SHUT CLUBS DOWN CAUSE NGGAS WAS SHOOTIN BUT STILL….

    WE SAID SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

    NONE OF THE PEOPLE YOU CHAMPION SAY NOTHING DO NOTHING AND ARE ABOUT NOTHING…

    SO I GUESS WHEN YOU ARE A WEAKLING, STRENGTH POSITIVITY MAKES YOU TURN YOUR FACE CAUSE YOU CANT LOOK AT THE TRUTH.

    AND WHILE YOU AT IT SLAVES, GIVE BACK YOUR BLACKNESS CARD.

    YOU HAVE NOTHING I MEAN NOTHING IN COMMON WITH:

    TRAYVON. YOU HAVE NOTHING IN WITH MALCOM, JAMES BROWN
    YOU HAVE NOTHING IN COMMON WITH MARTIN YOU HAVE NOTHING WITH JAMES BALDWIN YOU HAVE NOTHING IN COMMON WITH DUKE ELLINGTON.

    SO NICE CUBE YOU NEEED TO STFU. DUDES WHO HAVING NOTHING I MEAN NOTHING TO SAY *ALWAYS* SAY DUDES IS HATING….

  • It is a dam shame when you hear the same dam songs on the radio all day!! like Dmc said any Dj can go out right now and find a dope rapper bring him to the radio and play his song, and introduce us to other artists, and sounds but its all controlled by corporations. These radio stations are all about that payola, these so called chart spots are bought.

  • One thing i give Jay credit for is knowing how to stay ahead of the game. He’s 43 years old and is ahead of the league of rappers twice younger than he is. He is aware that in this day and age you have to stay relevant and constantly push yourself in the faces of your audience just enough to stay on there mind. He’s not too over bearing when it comes to marketing, he doesn’t do too many showcases unless he’s on a major tour, he’s in charge of his own marketing and management. He knows how to play the game. Its not his fault that others cant do the same. Of course hes in the position to do so because of his finances and business stand point but hey, if you know the right people and have a true talent and passion for it, you can make it just like him. Its about dedication, hard work and knowing whats effective and efficient when showcasing your talents to the masses. Problem is, everyone wants to be to either be signed and let someone do all the work for them to never get paid or too independent and think they can produce, market, manage, distribute and perform all at the same time just like very few cats in the game, and even they have some form of help and advisors on the sidelines. We can listen to rap songs and read interviews from artist of how they made it big and how they stay relevant but your not going to get the full story of how they know CEO Bobs son in law who happens to know swell marketing individuals that can get you sweet deals on recording time and a slot on XYZ radio station for a discounted cost. None of the true behind the scenes of this art is shown to the masses. It takes skill yes, but a whole lot rest on fate, chance, pretty much sheer luck.

    • Obi Won

      I agreed with what you said about Jay, everyone knows he’s a hustler & intelligent, but his moves doesn’t make him ahead of the game, just makes him a Vet, making Veteran moves. Like you said he’s 43, and been in it since the early 90’s. I would hope he’s not making amateur moves in the music business. Not to discredit any of the other veterans his age or older, but Jay let it be known this is about money & power. Other legends let it be known that its all about the music, the people, the art, Jay doesn’t feel that way 100% lol. Rap is his side hustle now, even though he still has Hip Hop embedded deep.

  • Mitre Iolive

    Jigga & Wayne don’t rap about relevant things nor do they attempt to get people to think about relevant things. Social issues. They aren’t being held accountable. If they say anything relevant its relevant to what needs to stop going on. Music is a voice for responsible users. Once they change up & start rapping about community & things they don’t deserve credit, they should’ve been doing that & there’s many artists out that have been & haven’t gotten recognition they deserve. Death to auto tune & death to certain dude’s careers. 2pac warned us too. So back to the block ya’ll keep rapping about without changing the block. Fools

    • Weedras

      2pac purported as much ignorance and irrelevant things as the ppl you mentioned… lets not forget he was at the forefront of hip hop’s most violent period..

      • Mitre Iolive

        U obviously know very little about early 90s rap. I knew some1 would say something ignorant about me mentioning 2pac. That’s y I mentioned him too. Bkuz he wouldn’t have turned on any1 if people would’ve followed instead of turn on him. So he understood as I do now too, the world isn’t gonna change thru music, like andre3000 said, ya’ll don’t hear me u just wanna dance. Ignorance is bliss. Get paid or should I say keep paying the bs artists & excusing them. Even if 2pac was ignorant in his early career which he wasn’t, it gives no reason for you to excuse others to be but we obviously don’t learn from the past. Its bigger than big bro, but maybe 1 day.

      • Weedras

        who said i was excusing anyone i simply pointed out 2Pac too also spewed as much ignorance as others have and was a part of Hip Hop’s most violent period and yes i was around and entrenched in 90’s rap… 2pac knew how to play both roles sorta like acting… one minute he was the outspoken poet for social issues the next minute he was all about the ignorant sh*t that was messing up the black community.. 2pac in a sense also fits the mold that dmc is talking about many are quick to paint Pac as some savior when he was also involved in as much bullshit and ignorance as many of today’s rappers… i do commend him for his uplifting music though but he also was a part of the ignorance..

      • Mitre Iolive

        I’m with u, but I’m looking at the timing, Pac didn’t go against the world until “me against the world”. Meaning he was selling a message. Then he went all out 4 the cash Cruz he realized that no1 gave a damn about the black community, not even blacks. Nobody comes out getting famous preaching change so people usually either camouflage until they can reveal their true self or they grow up. 2pac came out as a representation of the black community & american spokesman, It was the self sacrifice & afflictions Pac made himself susceptible to that made him an example that not enough men are man enough to take on. He didn’t start the bullshit until he got shot by the same color skinned people he was trying to save. So Yea he was a savior that got killed by those he tried saving in the beginning. Makaveli. Y keep putting your neck on the line for people when they just wanna follow money? So F em all watch em all fall, hit em up take money. He was like Jesus but he wasn’t Jesus cuz if he was he would’ve known it & never changed like Jesus never changed.
