In an interview with, Kidd was asked about Roc Nation’s Jay Electronica and whether he every came across the “Exhibit C” emcee while in New Orleans. Kidd Kidd responded by saying:

Real n***a s**t. I keep it 100. I don’t know dude. I never seen him. When I heard about dude he was on a song with Talib Kweli. I was like damn n***a say he from New Orleans. He from New Orleans? Where in New Orleans? N***a was like he from uptown. I’m the type of n***a to do research on n***as. Especially if you talking about you from New Orleans. So I asked around. Don’t nobody know dude. Not saying he a fake n***a, I don’t know him to say that about him, but you asked me about him in New Orleans, I don’t know him from New Orleans.

Jay Electronica has stated that he is originally from New Orleans’ Magnolia Projects, and later moved to New York City, Philadelphia, and other cities. In a 2010 interview with MTV, Electronica spoke about his New Orleans heritage and his embarrassment about being a southern rapper at one point in his career.

“In my earlier years from when I first left home, I was embarrassed being from the South,” said Jay. “Now I’m at a place where I understand where I’m from. I understand my culture and I’m more proud to be from there than associate with somewhere else.”

He goes on to say, “I’m from New Orleans and there’s a certain type of music …  It’s a part of me; I grew up with bounce music. It’s call-and-response, it’s trance, it’s tribal, it’s communal, it’s African.”

    kidd kidd and jay-e are from 2 different eras so its a good chance he doesnt know jaye or any of his peoples especially since it sounds like jaye used to want to get away from the NO … i always say the same ish about Young Guru who is from wilmington delaware but hes alot older than me and he left delaware a longggggggg time ago so its hard to trace any of his footsteps ouchea without actually having a conversation with the man himself ….. GURU GET @ ME !!!!!! lol

    Kidd Kidd is one helluva dumb negro. Jay E’s whole family is from N.O. He is generations deep in N.O and everyone knows it.
    My question is how many times can a porch monkey say “YuNalmSayin” in one sentence?

  • Spirit Equality

    I’m from New Orleans and I never saw Kidd Kidd. I still haven’t seen Kidd Kidd in person to this day. I’ve only seen him on websites like this. So? There are a lot of people in New Orleans. Nobody knows everybody. I never ran into Mystikal walking around either, so what? Are rappers supposed to just walk around the city until they bump into everybody? LMAO. This wasn’t a very well-thought out answer.

    • ItGoesDownINtheDM

      no but imo they should be known by somebody …. its alot of frauds ouchea claiming spots they aint really from or have no roots there

      • Spirit Equality

        My homeboy from New Orleans ran into Jay Electronica….in New Orleans. I also spoke to somebody that said Jay Elec’s grandma lived in the Magnolia. She can’t be hard to find. I doubt Kidd Kidd really looked.
