Lord Jamar Says Chicago Needs More Voices To Counteract Chief Keef

(AllHipHop News) Brand Nubian’s Lord Jamar has been very vocal recently about some of the major headlines happening in Hip Hop, and he addressed another constant subject of the media – Chicago rapper Chief Keef. During a recently uploaded interview with VladTV, conducted before some of Keef’s latest legal problems, the rapper/actor expressed his belief that Chief Keef’s street music should not be the only representation of Chitown.

“There has to be that contrast,” said Jamar. “If [Keef] represents that and all the wild s**t that’s going on in Chicago, well I know damn well there’s youth out there trying to counteract what’s going in Chicago, but we’re not hearing people like that.”

The creator of The 5% Album also goes on to point out that Chicago has been home to some of the country’s most well-known revolutionary thinkers like Fred Hampton and the Black Panther Party, but he feels that side of the city had not been showcased nearly as much as Chief Keef.

“Chicago is place that a lot of revolutionaries came from, but these people are not being heard right now,” added Jamar. “So we need more voices to counteract the Chief Keefs of the world, because they’re just crying out for help.”
