Lord Jamar Threatens Yelawolf; Yelawolf Responds

Lord Jamar has responded to Yelawolf's comments regarding White people in Rap and homosexuality in Hip Hop.

Lord Jamar has threatened Yelawolf over recent comments. He's also insulted Yelawolf, calling him an "inbred." The Brand Nubian emcee also directed an insult towards a portion of Yelawolf supporters, saying some are "redneck fans." 

After insulting Yelawolf, Lord Jamar, who recently said White people are guests in Hip Hop, also listed White rappers he has no problem with.

Lord Jamar's comments came on Twitter today (November 7). 



Lord Jamar also posted an update on Twitter regarding Yelawolf November 4, following the initial report.


On November 6, Jamar clarified his stance on the matter.


Following the Twitter posts, Yelawolf posted on Facebook, saying that he was threatened by Lord Jamar and that he is available for a confrontation while he is on tour.

 

The comments followed Yelawolf's statements during a vladtv.com interview where he was asked about recent Lord Jamar remarks regarding White people in Rap and homosexuality in Hip Hop.

"In one instance he's right," Yelawolf said in an interview with vladtv.com. "From his perspective, I could see where he...I can agree with him on one side of it. I think he's right. White artists are definitely a guest when it comes to the culture of Black America's musical arts, whether it be Hip Hop, Blues or even Rock & Roll if you wanna look at it that deep. You've gotta go back a long way to feel that way though.

"On the flip side, yeah, we're guests, if you look at the roots of everything, but that's like saying here's a house that we built as a people," Yelawolf said. "We built this house, Black people. And then a few generations ago, it's been rented out. It's been renovated. It's been changed. Black people, White people, Asian people, people all over the world has been to this house, lived in it, used it, abused it, fixed it up. It is now a different home. It doesn't matter who laid the first brick. Now you have to just embrace the fact that this house is better now that different ideas have come in to put a different window in there, a different roof on it to change this, to change that, to make it more livable. It's all about perspective. That's my perspective. I feel like, as a White rapper, the house that I've been a guest in hadn't been no fuckin' good time sleepover. I haven't exactly had the fuckin' red carpet laid out for me. I had to fight for my spot. But, it is what it is.

"Everybody has a place," Yelawolf added. "I've always felt protective of the culture of White rappers because you want to protect the steez of it and make sure that that circle of artists are to a certain par, at least to your opinion. But, all that has changed. It don't even fuckin' matter no more. It's not like when I came up. These kids aren't going to the hood club in the middle of Bankhead like I was doing to try to get respected. They're not taking the same steps. It's not comparable to how I came up. The people I was rollin' with, the things I was doing and how I came up is totally different." 

Yelawolf also commented on Lord Jamar saying Hip Hop is gay friendly.

"To say homosexuality has no place in Hip Hop is ignorant," Yela said. "That ain't got nothin' to do with him being Black, or White, or nobody. That's just stupid. What the fuck are you talking about, man? It's music. You could talk about any fucking thing you want to. That is the beauty of it all."

Lord Jamar's remarks about White people in Hip Hop can be read below.

“Okay, White rappers, you’re coming to this almost as a guest,” Lord Jamar said. “Okay, matter of fact you are guests in the house of Hip Hop. Just because you have a hit record doesn’t give you the right as I feel to voice your opinion. White rappers, those of y’all who really studied the culture, that truly love Hip Hop and all that, keep it real with yourself, you know this is a Black man’s thing. We started this. This is our shit. We’ve allowed you, those of you who’ve proved your skill and all that, we’ve allowed you to come in and kick your shit, make yourself known. You know what I mean? And if you have enough respect for the culture we fuck with you. But don’t push it too far."

Lord Jamar's remarks regarding homosexuality in Hip Hop can be read below.

“Yeah, I say Rap is gay friendly," Jamar said. "Making a song like that is like feeling that you have the same footing as any other Hip Hop artist and to me you don’t. You don’t. Like I can’t go to somebody else’s house and even though they let me wear their clothes and eat their food, that’s not my house. That’s their house. And I can’t get so comfortable in their house that I feel like I can now start talking house politics…To me when people like Macklemore come out with songs like ['Same Love'], I know he loves Hip Hop and all that, but he’s trying to push an agenda that him as a White man feels is acceptable.”

    @lord Jamar Your such a racist fucktard . If you want to pull the racist card and dis on Yelawolf then listen to this boy. The white people didn't have to take the leashes of of yall black people dogg. You really think that you guys own hip hop? Thats so funny. First of all this is a free country and people can do an sing or rap about whatever and theres nothing you can do beside set back and watch yela become a mulit million $$$ rapper and you get to cry in your lil house wishing that your rude comments ment something and that ppl actually cared what you have to say. Bhaaaa you a dumb nigga. None of you people have a copy write on the N word or hip hop. Welcome to the 21century dude . Stop hating and stop worrying about another rapper because noone is gonna listen . Not even yelawolf. Does it look like you intimidated him. Lmao doubt it. Remember this. White people own every thing if you want to get racist. See bet that pissed you off. But only people such as u lord jamar is still worried about color. Not us. Anyone can rap if they want its there own free well. Back the fuck up dude cause u saying yelas gonna get hurt is a understatment . And I doubt that to. Everyone loves him but u and your two pals. Leave him alone because u really do look like a jealous racist. We white ppl did u black ppl a favor.so be thankful for that.

  • Shanty

    Rap is about language and knowledge. Using the right word at the right time. To an extent, it's about grammar. Fuck race. Fuck sexuality. It is about WORDS. The only difference between rap and any other genre is speed and rhyming ability.

    FU#K Jamar. He ain't no Lord of $hit. Fu*K his racist ass comments. Might as well say that the Whitehouse ain't made for black people (I don't believe or think that way) but it's the same comparison he is trying to make saying Hiphop is only for blacks and started that way. Fuck him and his bullshit old ass. Go cash that social security check you old fuck.

I dont like him or his music he stole from black music that is all true.. but with out him popularizing it you dont have rock n roll or hip hop and for johnny cash go check out interviews from Lupe or Pharell "There's certain qualities about Johnny Cash that gangsta rappers like to take and put within themselves, because there's always a good quality about somebody special in the game that you can take something from. Johnny Cash is one of those individuals" - snoop dogg... I have a pretty open mind when it comes to people but you are so ignorant i cant even begin to understand... i guess the only thing left to to is give you my tour schedule and if you show up we can throw down you egotistical cynical piece of shit... let go of the 80's its 2013

    "its true" The easiest way to debate Elvis's legacy is to look at the numbers. Even today he's still one of the most beloved and successful artists ever. That's all people remember. The rest gets chalked up to jealousy and the inability to stay on top for as long as Elvis did.

    Well... HipHopDX and the rest of the Hip Hop media have done it again. I could see the beef-merchants just picking away at the scab of this wound since the first interview and none of them were going to stop until they got some good ol' back-and-forth bullshit happening. Well done HipHopDX - you've now put yourself on the same fucked-up pedestal that magazines like The Source stand on. You don't represent Hip Hop - you fucking leach off every negative story or slant like fuckin' vampires and stir the pot until more drama pops off, which creates more negative shit that you use to get more hits on your page. You flogged Kendrick's Control verse, trying to create tension and drama until the carcass of the dead horse hung stinking in every daily post I received. And people wonder why half of the heads here are drama-hungry trolls who bash each other behind fucking modems - they just emulate the current standard set by the artists and the media that control artist exposure. Hang ya fucking heads in shame - if shit goes down over this one, you guys are ultimately responsible.

If "shit goes down" over this it will be Lord Jamar and Yelawolf's fault. That's it. And if you really wanna go that route, take it back to the source--Vlad TV. But like I said before, these are two adults acting like 15 year old kids. It's nobody's fault but their own.

    "Hip Hop started in the hood. Thats where new records still get broken, thats where people blow up as far as hip hop is concerned" No. Most of these rappers came from different hoods. Hip hop was always a business created by people who understood what it was going to take to make hip hop accessible to people who would have otherwised ignored the genre. If I were an exec I wouldn't care what people in the hood thought was good. They don't represent the average consumer. They steal music, and call it their own. They still argue relentlessly about who won between Jay Z and Nas. Hip hop would have never become a billion dollar industry if the hood was allowed to dictate what was acceptable.

There was tradional slave music that evolved into blues and jazz and then into country and rock and roll .. guess what came after that HIP HOP.. I hate elvis i cant stand his image or his music but do i deny what he did for music.

      Im an average white dude that likes country music and hip hop Ive been a fan of dudes like KRS and kool moe d to jay z to nas to kendrick to yelawolf eminem and dude like tech n9ne so what the fuck am i!!!! not everyone needs a label. For someone that claims they mastered information tech im surprised you havent just googled culture to find a real definition. Culture is many things is what you are raised in what youve become and what you still dont understand. why is the black mans culture? Hip hop wouldnt be what it is with out Elvis, Johnny cash, Aerosmith or the beastie boys. If Run DMC didnt do walk this way with Aerosmith would hip hop be what it is today? Why cant i be hip hop if I agree with many of the stances taken in the art.. Because you along with Lord jamar have an outdated look on the world. This isnt the 80s your not rapping under the brooklyn bridge East vs west is over and now dude like you and jamar have to cling on to what little ignorant beliefs you have and start shit with gays and white dudes in hip hop. I agree with RA the rugged man when hes talking about macklemore because he has an educated opinion unlike jamar who just speaks outta of hated and a longing for the past

      You have to understand no white person alive right now endorsed or practice slavery. You must additionally understand that no black person alive right now was enslaved. How are we to be held accountable for that? The fact that this logic is in existence at all is a clear illustration of the fact that people are too entitled to what is NOT rightfully theirs. You can hate on white rappers in the game all day, all night, all year. At the end of the day, YOU are the one displaying racial bigotry. YOU are the one preventing another race to progress where it naturally wants to. I can respond to your last question in one word, "yes". I can be upset about how Lord Jamar feels, because your right, it WAS whites that kept blacks out of certain bathrooms, buildings, busses, drinking fountains. But it's THE PAST. You are perpetuating the same exact mindset, but since the tables are turned in YOUR favor this time, it's all cool. You got what you want, why care? You're owed it right? No.

    Written by Davey D From Miley to Macklemore: The Privilege Spectrum August 30, 2013 By mrDaveyd 50 Comments Miley fatigue is in full effect, but we feel it is important that we as white people speak up, and hold our folks accountable to their racist behavior. The burden far too often falls on people of color to respond, to explain, to teach, to protest. This years Video Music Awards were yet another historical moment where whiteness reigned supreme. Black and Brown cultural creators and innovators were for the most part invisible, or worse, used as evidence of acceptance or racial progress. Jon Caramanica highlights how the VMAs were a window into a larger history within American popular culture: Mr. Timberlake was on trend in way, though: this was a banner year for clumsy white appropriation of black culture who were recipients of three awards, including best hip-hop video. In this context, the question of appropriation matters power, privilege, stereotypes, and centuries of racism play through both the appropriation and the resulting responses. To be clear, we are not against white folks embracing the art and culture that speaks truth to their hearts and souls, as hip-hop culture is still our first love, rather we are advocating for acknowledgement, accountability, and action. We are calling for examination of how stereotypes and blackness within the white imagination are often present within these moments of appropriation. On the privilege spectrum, we find ourselves appreciating Macklemore at a certain level, who is beginning, by at least acknowledging, in his lyrics, that white privilege is one of the reasons he is successful. Honest and courageous. In a recent interview, he noted, I do think we have benefited from being white and the media grabbing on to something. A song like Thrift Shop was safe enough for the kids. the fact that Im a white guy, parents feel safe. His rhetorical and lyrical stance doesnt mean he isnt cashing in on his privileges. The awards, the celebration of him as exceptional and different, the erasure of artists like 9th Wonder, Azealia Banks, Murs, Angel Haze, dead prez or Jasiri X from discussions of independent and conscious artists, and his popularity among white youth all speak to the centrality of whiteness. For him, and for us, the next step is to take that and be accountable by being in action for racial justice. Using his platform to impact the movement toward racial justice. At the other end of the spectrum, we have Thicke and Cyrus, along with their media collaborators, which not surprisingly have left Thicke (just as it left JT out of the post Super Bowl panics) out harms way. They are the embodiment of a history of not just appropriation and theft, but the ease to which artists are allowed and rewarded for pushing the boundaries. White artists have the privilege to be ratchet but still be accepted by mainstream media and seen as safe and marketable, states Jasiri X. Its been going on as long as weve invented different genres of music, but Im glad at least now were having a discussion about it. Lets not forget that this current cultural appropriation began with the enslavement of Africans and the genocide of the Native Americans. Gender Privilege Takes A Bow Its telling that Robin Thicke seems to be getting a pass amid all the media discussions of Miley. We have seen this before in so many contexts but yet again the sexual performances of men are judged by different standards as those of women. Despite the sight of a 36 year old married white men grinding up against a 20-year old white women, the outrage and dismay has been directed at her. In the American landscape White + male means go directly to the bank and dont pass go. Miley on the other hand is forced to stop for a media tongue lashing before heading to the bank. None of this is to say that Miley Cyrus deserves a pass, especially in light of her co-staring role in Appropriation-polooza the VMAs. There is much to be said about how she, Macklemore, Robin Thicke, and Justin Timberlake all seem to be celebrated for their connection to and performance of cultural productions tied to blackness. Yet, unlike their black counterparts inside and outside the music industry, they are not castigated for dysfunctional culture, or scapegoated for white social ills. There is much to be critical of regarding Mileys performance and the role of MTV here (putting her face in the booty of the African American female dancer; her history with twerking; and her recent interviews saying she loves hood music). This isnt just about appropriation or even the performance of black culture that is rooted in the white imagination. Rather it is about double standards. It is the celebration of white artists amid a culture that denigrates African Americans who partake in these cultural productions. It is about a culture that profits and privileges Miley and Thicke, but cites sagging pants or sexual dancing as evident of dysfunction and pathology. To talk about appropriation and the centrality of privilege and anti-black racism requires also talking about whiteness The panic, from Fox to MSNBC, is wrapped up in American history it is where race and gender, where misogyny and white supremacy, intersect. It reflects the fear resulting from contact or connection with what is seen as blackness. Whereas Robin Thicke doesnt need protection from blackness, from black male sexuality, and from the cultural pollutants found in hip-hop, Miley needs saving. Taking their cues from history, the patriarchal media is thus intervening to save Miley from blackness. Cyruss twerk act gives minstrelsy a postmodern careerist spin. Cyrus is annexing working-class black ratchet culture, the potent sexual symbolism of black female bodies, to the cause of her reinvention, writes Jody Rosen. Her transformation from squeaky-clean Disney-pop poster girl to grown-up hipster-provocateur. (Want to wipe away the sickly-sweet scent of the Magic Kingdom? Go slumming in a black strip club.) Cyrus may indeed feel a cosmic connection to Lil Kim and the music of the hood. The calls for intervention, and the fears about messages to the kids (whose kids, anyway?) are connected to her imagined proximity to an imagined blackness. Once good little Hannah Montana has been corrupted by the influence of hip-hop and blackness. From girl-next-door to girl-grinding- a-poll. The idea that blackness is pollutant reveals the level of stereotypes and why Miley needs help. Her fall from role model is seen as a consequence of cultural integration. The fears are thus about protecting her assigned white feminine purity and those who want to be like Miley. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsgCo6pR7n8 Not surprising we didnt see a movement toward justice on the VMAs. But we can hope, we can speak out, we can be accountable and hold others accountable, and we can act. What we would love to see with white performers, whether it be Macklemore or JT, who are benefiting directly and indirectly from white privilege and racism, is action: Use your platform and your voice to honor and pay respect to the people and cultures who originated the art form. Lets not allow what happened to jazz and rock n roll happen to hip-hop and R n B. Lets not turn artistry rooted in the black community into spaces of stereotypes, appropriated by white artists who reap the benefits while African Americans suffer the consequences. We are working toward a tipping point where the majority of white people can recognize we all still benefit unfairly from our skin color, and that we all have a stake in ending this injustice. We can only hope that the outrageous acts we witnessed at the VMAs push more of us to demand change, to stand up for justicefrom cultural appropriation to dehumanizing stereotypes, from mistreatment of immigrants to stop and frisk, from the criminalization of black and brown youth to the prison industrial complex. It is all connected. It is all on the spectrum of injustice. Stand up for whats right. Thanks to Rosa Clemente, Jonathan Fields, and Kwame Holmes all of who inspired this piece in important ways.

    Yet black people still blaming Eminem's sales because of his skin color, he just talented and does music that appeals to a lot of people. What blacks don't understand is that his music is mainstream hiphop and it is catchy so even people who don't like hiphop might listen to it, same goes for Tupac or Jay-Z. They make catchy songs and mainstream hiphop. Their songs appeal to the ears of most people. People don't understand that the majority of people don't listen to that undergound kind of rap, it's just not catchy, and most can't relate to that kind of life. That's why EM is so successful, his music is good for both hiphop and non hiphop heads. He does music that is a bit more pop unlike that underground sound, but it is still hiphop at the same time, and lots of people can relate to his lyrics also.

      You think only black people buy Drake's or 50 Cent albums? Their songs are catchy !! Everyone buys them whatever their color cause they like the music. The difference is, Eminem has the catchy music AND the lyrical skills and storytelling on certain songs that EVERYONE can relate to. He ain't rapping about how rich he is, or how life is tough selling drugs in the guetto. People relating to that kind of stuff are only smaller amount of people.

    • POPO

      I know, but my point is white people buy a lot of records from black rappers. 50 Cent, Jay-Z, 2 Pac, etc etc... All those major selling artists aren't this popular just because black people bought their albums, so quit lying to yourself. White people contributed to A LOT of those sales. If Eminem was black he still would have sold tons of records, okay maybe not 100+ millions, but at the very least like 50-60 Million. What you don't seem to understand is that you can only go so far by saying Eminem is so successful cause he's white. Its to a certain extent. People relate to what the guy is saying, everyone can, whatever you have been through in life, even if your problems arent the exact same as his, the music still speaks to a lot of people and it feels personal for a lot of them, not only whites. His music also appeals to the ear of most, a mix of hiphop and pop that even rock listeners can enjoy. Not being a stan, just saying the truth.

      Just heard Em. Rap God. bumpin loud as fuck out the door of a local spot in my city. Walking to the train from work. In THE BRONX. You know, the place where hip hop was BORN. Where God himself (or the universe, depending what u believe) decided to MAKE hip hop. Aka STFU n pay homage to somethin greater than yoself trick. Word to pac. I was Passing a barbershop. part of the HEART and soul of the black and hip hop community. Point being we show love to that Wigga ass nicca n the proof is in the pudding. Now I know how u white people do. One nicca does something and u think we ALL do it. Not so, bitcheses. Em ain't bumpin outta every window. The point is to u, and to niccas everywhere, it ain't just about sales wit Em. Or whiteness. We respect that nicca for what he do n what he has contributed to this game. Salute

      Emenim knows his record sales are high because he's white. The hood doesnt buy his music. Dont be naive. Not saying he isnt a dope lyracist but lets be real. Emenim had the machine behind him. Just like Jay. When Floyd Mayweather beat the shit out of Ricky Hatton... Most white people were pulling for Ricky Hatton... Saying that to say this... Emenim is like white people's Ricky Hatton (with more skill).... He is your great white hype.

Saying Peace comes from? LOLOLOL... Nope... Well listen to Lord Jamars 5 Percent album. Has much more substance than anything Yelawolf or any of them Europeans ever made and I have Yela's first album. Alot of you just exposed the fact that you know nothing about our CULTURE. You can make music called rap, but you will never be hip hop. The black man in America is Hip Hop. From the blackman on wall street, to the black man in the hood. We are Hip Hop. Unless you can graft yourself back to being black, you can never have the same claim as being Hip Hop than a black man. Peace

    The subtle, and overt ignorance on display on this comment board is amazing! Culture, history, art, and socioeconomics, are all fluid things not confined permanently to a specific group/race/system. Some of you are claiming white people treat Hip Hop in the same fashion as Chinatown tourists, picking and choosing and stealing what they want. In some instances this isdefinitely true, but by and large this is not the case as today it's a culture permeating from South America to Eastern Europe, to Southeast Asia, crossing all boundreis. Be proud of what you seeded, but trying to maintain exclusivity is similar to european colonists not allowing outsiders to enter into their society. When two cultures live side by side they cross-pollinate and merge in places! White people like hip hop, african americans like automobiles, and vice versa, can't we all just be happy liking something that's dope!?!?!?

Yelawolf does respect the culture, He also told Jamar to shut up not because of white rappers being guests, but because he feels everyone should express what they want in their music. Even if i'm not for all this gay act, everyone should be allowed to express what they want through music. This Jamar guy is an old racist fuck. Black people do white people stuff on a daily basis and they are accepted in whatever white culture in 2013. Why are they disrespecting white rappers and always have to bring up the color?

    Lets start by saying this. Respect your fathers and mothers, white people. The black man and woman are the original people of the planet Earth. All 196,940,000 Square miles of the planet was first surveyed by us. So to bring up a few inventions that you guys have come up with means nothing. I can show you an African counterpart to that invention that's more than likely thousands of years older. Your history books just wont teach you that because once again, white supremacy is the foundation of everything in this country. Back to my point about respecting your mothers and fathers tho.... If it wasnt for the black man their would be no white people on this planet. Mendels Law states dominant genes can produce dominant and recessive and recessive genes can only produce recessive. Who you think has the recessive genes on the planet? The white man does, sonny. Unless you believe that gay ass roman construct of a story about Adam and Eve, which Eden was still in Africa... There is no way you can show and prove what im saying to be false. Lord Jamar has knowledge of self and has been working hard for the black community for years months and days. We have to keep Europeans with the status of guest in hip hop because if we dont, like everything else... you will steal it, rape it, and eventually murder it. Look at Rock N' Roll. Half of you Rock fans dont know who Chuck Berry is. As one brohta stated already, this art form was born out of oppression. Public Enemy and fight the power, Ice Cube Amerikkka's most wanted, Brand Nubian, Lakim Shabazz, Rakim to the Mos Def, Scarfaces, Talib's, Wu Tang's and Nas's... All have one thing in common... They have Knowledge and they drop knowledge in their records. Thats one thing a white man will never be able to do unless he admits that he is a devil. You will always be a guest because you are not the oppressed people, you are actually the oppressor. So I hope you enjoyed your run with Eminem but everything is going back to the basics. Nobody wants to hear corny shit anymore. With the country in shambles, the ecomonmy being horrible, and the original man and woman (black man and woman)still being the victims of white supremacy on a global scale... A white man is not going to speak on this. This is why hip hop could never be yours. It is slowly going back to where it started. Can a white man make a Dead Prez "lets get free" Album? I hardly can believe that unless im blind deaf and dumb. Peace

      First and foremost, skin pigmentation has nothing to do with genetic recessive qualities, it actually pertains to the ethnic group origin. African's having a high deposit of Melanin (the item which causes the dark pigmentation) due to their higher exposure to UV light which can cause irreversible cell damage if not filtered. Melanin is natures natural sun-block. Caucasians would require less Melanin as their ethnic background and origin were from regions of Europe which had lower levels of UV exposure, thus requiring more Hair to trap and harbor warmth and less Melanin which caused lighter skin.

    It's ridiculous to make an argument about race in hip hop. It doesn't matter what someone's skin color is. If you make good music, I will listen to it. My iTunes library doesn't have a race quota i need to meet. Jamar's initial comments were unnecessary in the first place.

    Lord Jamar is a racist and bigoted cunt. "This is our shit". Motherfucker, if you don't want the colour of your skin to be used against you, then don't perpetuate shit with your ignorant ass

    • Mike D

      Oh yeah, and Lord Jamar is a total racist and attention whore. Perceiving being "black" or "white" as a true difference between the character of an individual is a concept created by the "Masters" of the world to create chaos among the population thus creating the illusion that our government is necessary to keep the peace among the people. Which enables them to take away any freedoms they don't think should be allowed. and establishing rules and regulation which prevent the advancement of a multicultural free society. The less we know the easier it is to keep control. So stop wasting your time worrying about what the brown guy or the white guy is up to and start questioning the highest authority.

    • Mike D

      Try listing some actually good white rappers. Vinnie Paz, Ill Bill, Apathy, Celph Titled, Diabolic, Brother Ali, R.A. The Rugged Man, MC Esoteric, or Slaine. All of these guys kill all of those guys. No Doubt.

    • Slumadian

      How is it "weak minded" to have a real conversation? Fuck lord jamar. Its a deep topic for me. I fucking live this shit and have my whole life, so for some cunt to say whites don't belong is offensive. especially coming from someone like him.

    • A Person

      But it is a topic that brings up the bigger issue, read my other posts below if you want to know what I mean (I am not typing it again)

  • A Person

    I feel strange chiming in as somebody who is white and loves hip hop to his core. But I mean, as someone who tries their best to understand the culture and the lifestyle and the world it evolved from. Obviously, I am not someone who was born into this culture, hell, I barely started to understand hip hop until a bit over two years ago. However, I would say that I have done my best to understand all aspects of the culture and the background it evolved from, and even though I am an obvious "guest" (someone that is new to the culture), I would hope that people respect my love for hip hop and all that it entails, especially as it relates to the knowledge that holds all the various elements together. All I can say is that the pursuit of knowledge is what led me to love hip hop, and I am thankful that I have had an opportunity in my life to learn about its history, the roots, and the various aspects that it brings to the table. Wish people would learn to appreciate what is in front of them, learning from it, taking bits and pieces, rather than trying to change everything to fit their views. I mean, yea, there are some aspects of hip hop (i.e. commercial pop rap, which really shouldn't be part of the culture), that I do not have respect for, but that does not diminish the immense respect I have for the artistry that goes into writing rhymes and the lyricism, deejaying, graffiti art, and b-boying. The culture should be about bringing people together for a greater cause, and I feel that this ideal is sometimes lost on people. It's a shame that this has become an argument about race, but there are obvious issues here, and it isn't something that I would be able to fix. However, as I said, I am happy that I have had a chance to learn about and appreciate hip hop culture for what it is, and that is something that will last forever.

    • Slumadian

      I couldn't agree more man. Finally someone who see's shit for what it is. keep writing bro. I hope you make it

    • A Person

      In my eyes, there are different levels, one being guest, where you are learning the culture, and the next level being an active participant in the culture. I mean, I myself write raps from time to time, mostly just for myself out of my love for the culture. The point is, this really shouldn't be about race. The real issue hear is that the culture is polluted by materialism and other negative stereotypes that are perpetrated by the media, especially through pop rap. This is the major issue here, hip hop should be purely about the love for the culture, and I mean, if you can make money and represent your culture well, I commend that, but it is a shame that hip hop is represented by a bunch of puppets (i.e. YMCMB, MMG) that do nothing but reinforce what people assume about hip hop culture without trying to dig deeper. This should be about the love and the passion and the craft, not about who has the most money or the biggest chain or the nicest car or the most women. Its a shame that the world views this amazing culture the way it does, and I would love to help this movement through unity and the genuine love I have for the artistry.

    • Slumadian

      Well spoken sir. But im a white guy who is 29 and has listened to hip-hop since I was 8. So for someone to say that I am a guest really offends me. I grew up on the shit and I am a part of the culture. I live it everday. So for some asshole trying to tell me what I am, who has no idea about me or any other white man can go fuck himself

    • A Person

      Edit: Environment that they came up in, not that I came up in

    • A Person

      Also, as a side note, while I don't necessarily have a problem with artists discussing the environment I came up in, I do have a major problem with the materialism that runs rampant in the mainstream, and this emphasis on acts that go against the idea of peace, unity, love and having fun to quote James Brown (that is a true classic). These materialistic raps are not good for the culture in my view, and only serve to promote a negative stereotype that couldn't be further from the truth.

  • Lord Jamar

    I am sorry Hip-Hop. I apologize for everything that I said about Yelawolf. He would lyrically tear me a new asshole. I wish him, Struggle, Rittz, & Shawty Fat all the best. As for my comments about homosexuality in Hip-Hop. That just stems from me being insecure about my own sexuality. Again, I am sorry Slumerican.

  • Chuck Berry

    Reading the comments its pretty obvious that whites don't view HipHop culture as an actual culture, they view it as a "sport" and use Black people playing Golf or Basketball as an analogy for being a "guest" within HipHop culture. LOL, that's how they view HipHop, just read their comments. These are the type of people that will go to ChinaTown and learn the Dragon ceremomonies and intricacies of music and dance that it incorporates and then tell you that its not Asian culture and then use the ceremonial rituals to promote homosexuality. Our Native American brothers and sisters have a beautiful culture and one aspect of that is the Pow Wow, where they gather in ceremonial garb and sing, chant, and dance. They have an MC and they also have the all important drum. It's a truly amazing experience to witness. I would love to learn the intricacies and nuances of the Native Americans Pow Wow culture and if they would consider me as a guest Id be honored and give them my upmost respect for allowing me to represent a part of their culture. Maybe culture and art are especially important to people that have been stripped of their own culture and forced to adopt a foreign culture that is hostile and incompatible to them on many levels.....and by that same accord maybe stripping orher people of their own culture and art is important to some people. Unless an individual has an understanding of the griot and the drum in traditional African culture then you might not understand the importance of the beats and rhymes in African-American music. Jazz, Blues, R&B, Soul, Rock, Gospel and Rap these cultural/musical artforms were born out of oppression. B-Boying, Graf', Scratching, & Rapping is worldwide now and people abroad may be unaware that it started as an indigenous African American culture but Lord Jamar knows and has the courage to never let the world forget as long as he is breathing.

Now Look at Zimbabwe, Haiti, pakistan, somalia etc.. all run by non white people and blacks. And all those poor black neighborhoods in white countries. Black people are losers and there is no excuse because we live in 2013 not in 1920. White people will always be smarter and wiser, black people have less brains and it has been proven.

Moreover, one Senator denied he was gay, a week before this incident, was seen basically walking around in shorts, showing his ankle bracelet. So go fuck yourself with that bullshit.

Go back to the 1940's, the plan was to change the educational system into English, France's ambassador, then, went to Haitian authorities making threats and the educational remains as it today and is one of the primary reasons for the state of Haiti-French thinking system, talk and no action.

    "Only people in a position of power CAN be racists.

Just look at the quality of life in white neighborhoods and white countries. the successfull countries, white people are behind it. Now Look at Zimbabwe, Haiti, pakistan, somalia etc.. all run by non white people and blacks. And all those poor black neighborhoods in white countries. Black people are losers and there is no excuse because we live in 2013 not in 1920. White people will always be smarter and wiser, black people have less brains and it has been proven. White people have invented most of the major things like telephone, electricity, all major scientific discoveries. Mostly every shit you see in everyday life nowdays is because of White people!! So suck on it.

    All this argument is accomplishing is propagating racism. If you honestly base your music taste off of someone's skin color, fuck off. Lord Jamar is being racist as fuck. I don't have time for that garbage. Yelawolf's response was very mature, btw. This whole argument is invalid though.

    Who the fuck is Lord Jamar anyways? Clown didn't have to go off on Yela when the man was speaking his opinion

    Yelawolf is right and that jamar guy is an idiot. Why is the guy making such a big deal about white rappers being guests and shit? who gives a fuck, i mean seriously. Black people are guests in our country and are guests in pretty much everything out there which was invented by white people. Do you see us complaining about it or reminding them we started this and that? Who gives a fuck. Black people are so protective and afraid to lose the only thing they got, yet they do sports or every other shit, use the shit white people have invented on a daily basis. Lord Jamar is an idiot for saying that crap, so suck on it niggros.

      Actually white people come from black people. Do some extended research beyond your HIS-STORY books and you be sad to find out your whole race came from black people. Sorry now go home and cry about it

      Y'all can argue, but white people created way more shit than black people, from different sports, to movies, to the fuckin Windows computer you are using to get on this website. A lot of things you do on a daily basis was started by white people. Do y'all see us complaining about black people doing things we have started or reminding them every fuckin time we have started this shit? No, cause we don't care. These guys continue to frown about white rappers and a lot still can't accept them, yet a lot of them go on and call white people racists, and the same people always pull up the skin color as a factor because something is happening to them. Retarded Hypocrits.

  • MMLP was a classic

    macklemore makes hip-hop for people who don't like hip-hop. I can't tell you how many people have told me this is the only exception to their hatred towards the entire hip-hop genre, because Macklemore's music is so "meaningful". Since when do people take the meaning behind songs into serious consideration when determining if they enjoy the music or not? And these are the same people who listen to The Beatles sing about LSD, Warrant sing about Cherry Pie, and AC/DC sing about having big testicles. SOOOOOOO MEANINGFUL!!!!!!!!!!

    Hahaha, Lord Jamar is a racist fuck but he pretty much had to drop a couple of white rapper names like Eminem because he is afraid of the repercussions his statements might have. It's pretty obvious that he dislikes all white rappers period. But he is too much of a pussy to admit it and only feels confident enough to take on Yelawolf. Trust me, he wouldn't say that kind of shit about Eminem, even though i am convinced he hates him and is jealous of his success, but he pretty much had no choice but to name him as a rapper he fucks with because he would sound like a fool if he didn't and he is afraid of the backlash.

  • Slumadian

    So this idiot says that whites are guests in hip-hop. Then goes on to say that he fucks with Eminem, asher roth, ra the rugged man, brother ali, action bronson, apathy, and mc serch. Is this fucker drunk or what? I respect yela for standing up to this washed up has been. Fucking internet goon. Fuck lord jamar.

    Whites should denounce HipHop and forbid themselves from buying rap records, let's see how far Eminem and Mackelmore get with their gay agenda. Black folks were Break-dancing, DJing, B-boying, Beat-Boxing, and doing Graffitti long before whites started buying HipHop albums and we will continue to express ourselves through those cultural artforms with or without white support. It was only a matter of time before a white brought faggotry into the culture and made a platinum fag-friendly song, it's just what they do.

      so the guy who took his whole style from homos said hip-hop is the opposite of gay? maybe it used to be but with fags like kanye, drake and wayne shit is pretty gay these days

    • hahaha, i know this is a troll but

      that song is so damn gay, i don't want any rap songs about gay love. come on. kanye said it years ago, hiphop is the opposite of gay. Gays have everything else and are more loved in the country than black people at this moment of time, they don't need rap

      Mister Cee is a DJ that does filthy freak business in his own personal life he is our brother from our community but we had to chastise him for his behavior. Hopefully he won't start dressing up as a woman in rap videos like Eminem or making gay anthems like Mackelmore.

      Then "legends" like Mister Cee, who happens to be black, gets exposed for having an addiction with prostitute transvestites, but it's the white people that brought homosexuality into the game.. GAYS COME FROM ALL COLORS YOU FUCKING IDIOT.

  • sense culture

    first of all much respect to brand nubian!!, but lord jamar is an ignorant fuck! im sayin this as a black man who loves hip hop that real shit. his commentary is tasteless and just makes him look like a disgruntled o.g. who's mad at "White Rappers"...if you got skills you got skills black or white. .and to make things worst he threatens to beat dude up come on dude you like 50 years old grow up..

  • Nas is a prophet.......

    I dont even begin to listen to this shit after Pac and Big died. We as blacks lost the art form when a white man can ok homosexuality in Hip Hop. Its over from my point of view. 1.We Got Charron dissing B.E.T 2.We got Dizaster dissing L. Farrakahn 3.Mr Cee openly soliciting penis 4.Frank Ocean storming out the closet 5.Kanye wearing skirts and marrying a jumpoff 6.Crips sueing bloods after a few love taps All this stuff is new age and Hip Hop as we know it is dead, its over and we as blacks should except this as truth. Yela and all others have freedom of speech. I hope Jamar will stay off twitter and the blogs. Let the faggots and white boys have it.

  • 2PAC FOREVER

    all u idiots trying to call black people racists like its a popular thing to do now.....need to re read US history and see the order it happened in. Black folks can never be racists, when you look at US history. NEVER.....you have to be in a position of power like the early europeans were. to say that minorities are racist...is a FARCE created by the real racists to deflect all that attention towards so that they can keep carrying on with that behaviour. str8 up...dont believe me?? read US history!!!!!!!!!!!

      I am a white man, but this comment is 100% true. Only people in a position of power CAN be racists. Racism has to do with discriminating people of a different race by keeping them oppressed and, more generally, preventing them from having the same rights... if a black person makes an ignorant comment, that is not racism, it is just an ignorant comment..

    White rappers aint as good as real niggas who rap but Lord Jamar needs to shut the fuck up. Thats the reason why people hate on lotta rappers cuz niggas like him say shit like this. Aint it hip hops job to unite not separate and with jamar running his mouth he reinforcing shit that white people have always thought that niggas are ignorant. Some white rappers are ill even Feminem was at one time good. Stop with the bullshit.

    Why is this even a discussion? Who gives a fuck about white or black or gay or straight. Music and hip-hop is an art form. Not a racial movement or anything like that. Who cares what skin color is of the person putting the words in motion.

      Racism/white-supeemacy is a global construct. white racism and white supremacy has started World Wars, LOL, these whites are the only peopleon the planet with hundreds of Hate groups dedicated to ravism and race hatred. whites invented racism so it comes natural for them, one simple minded white said he met racism online or some corny shit which shows you how ignorant the little reptile is because when we think racism we think predatory lending, all white juries, racial profiling, Apartheid, miscegenation laws, Jim Crow, Rockedeller drug laws etc etcetc, racism to these disgusting pigs is reading a comment online while racism to us is instutionalized racism, academic racism, and white supremacy. thats why you gotta understand the nature of this beast.

      People can only act according to their nature and be who they were bred to be so Im never surprised by reactions be they subtle or suspect. One aspect of HipHop that white peoples can take great pride in is that they control HipHop music in almost every aspect of it from a corporate level; they own the record labels, the distribution companies, the radio stations, and the music television channels including B.E.T. I encourage all minorities to get into executive positions. Ownership is key.

    The blackman is not responsible for many of the world's ills and the American Black shouldn't even be considered to be that culprit. History, recent or archival, tells you another story about another race. So if you're on here trying your best to point the finger at a Black, even when you state you have been "in charge" and "rule the world", you might want to take a step back to see how you're totally contradicting yourself and that hatred is in your genes. The days of "pulling the wool over one's eyes" by using the slick forked tongue and people just believing you because you possess the grandiose luxury items are over. The internet allows other cultures and nations to study you, not just take what the propaganda says as fact. Many of them can see now that the Blackman in America has been right about you all along. So instead of you rocking that hate jacket that they used in the 50's, you might want to sit down with your oblivious elders and figure out a new strategy, y'all are looking really, really bad out here for the world to see.

    I don't fuck with none of them corny rappers Lamar named in his Tweets and I'm sure he don't either but it's a cool PC thing to say. Culture Vultures are always going to appropriate your music and dance, that's why bitches with flat asses are tweaking with no rhythm whatsoever and dudes in hi-heels are raping about performing fellatio on their sted dads.

    I had no idea (nor did I care) that Brother Ali was "white." Hell I even think he has a song about his skin colour and how people perceived him. Anyways Yela is from my home state so Im going to ride with him regardless. But without that bias I still think he is one of the best "white" rappers to ever do it. Him and Ritz are fucking beast.

  • Who cares

    Who cares. When I'm listening to music I can't see your skin color. I guess being a bitter human being makes you hate things different from you. I actually don't like yelawolfs music or really know much about lord jamar. Not bc I'm stupid but bc neither has done something to warrant my fandom. They can be great artist hip hop heads or whatever the fuck you want . Thanks for another dumb story

  • JaceShadoe

    u like bronson and mac miller but not yelawolf??? Yelawolf is better than MGK, Bronson, Miller, maybe asher roth. U picked to disrespect yelawolf as a white rapper??? pick an easier white rapper than yelawolf. In my opinion, yelawolf is the first rapper to successful mix the country/rap style that he has. a lot of other rappers sound like shit when they do it.
