Lord Jamar Says White People Gravitate To White Artists "Doing Black Music"

Lord Jamar calls Miley Cyrus a "white Rihanna," says Miley's "whiteness will propel her even further than Rihanna."

In a recent interview with Vlad TV, Brand Nubian rapper Lord Jamar briefly circled back to the topics discussed in his September 2013 interview with the website. In his September interview, the New York lyricist declared that white rappers “are guests in the house of Hip Hop” and in his most recent interview with Vlad TV, the New York emcee stated that that comment also goes for Eminem.

In addition to labeling Eminem a guest in Hip Hop, Jamar shared his belief that white artists need a co-sign from a black person in order to be successful in black music. Among the artists Jamar says received a co-sign are the Beastie Boys, Justin Timberlake, and Eminem. He also suggested that Vanilla Ice’s lack of a co-sign is the reason why the rapper wasn’t successful.

“If this is not black music then how come every white artist needs a co-sign from a black person? Beastie Boys had the co-sign from Run DMC,” Jamar said. “Eminem had the co-sign from Dr. Dre. Vanilla Ice didn’t have a co-sign. That’s why he didn’t fuckin last. Macklemore, see I don’t know who his co-sign is. Now he might be an exception to the rule, but I don’t know who his co-sign is. But at the same time, black peoples not really fucking with Macklemore like that.”

Prior to sharing his thoughts on co-signs, Lord Jamar offered his opinion on Miley Cyrus and revealed that the singer is trying to be a “white Rihanna.” He also stated that since Miley is white she’ll likely be more successful than Rihanna.

“She’s doing historically what a lot of artists have done,” he said. “You know what I mean? The ones that go for the shock value. But she’s also trying to pull from black music. Like to me, she’s trying to be the white Rihanna. She’s just pushing a little further. I mean, listen to her music. Listen to the way it sounds. The way she’s singing. Like she’s trying to sound like Rihanna right now. Like let’s keep it real. She cut her hair short trying to look like Rihanna. You dig what I’m saying? But she knows that that whiteness will propel her even further than Rihanna. Because in a country where white people are the majority, that’s what they want to see.”

Detroit wordsmith Eminem was later brought up during Jamar’s conversation on white artists and black music and was subsequently labeled a “guest in the house of Hip Hop.”

“Just like in Eminem. We had a lot of people talking about ‘Is Eminem a guest in the house of Hip Hop?’ You’re mothafuckin right he is,” Jamar said. “Just cause he sold the most records and all of that like…I fucks with Eminem, you know, as a lyricist and all of that, but it’s like we are in America. Okay? Where the majority of the people are white. Now the majority of the people in the world are not white. But here in America they’re white. So, when you have a white artist doing black music, white people just gravitate to that crazily. You know what I mean? But sales doesn’t equate to greatness.”

Following Lord Jamar’s comments about white rappers in September of last year, he’s shared his thoughts on artists both black and white. Last month, he offered advice to Chicago rapper Chief Keef and in the same month he demanded an apology from Alabama emcee Yelawolf after he informed Jamar to “shut the fuck up” during an interview with Vlad TV.

“I’m gonna give you a chance to publicly apologize,” he said. “And if you can do that I’ll leave you alone. If you don’t, if I ever see you it’s on on sight. I don’t have nothing to talk about. I’m running at you at a hundred miles an hour. On sight. That’s how I grew up. You know what I mean? So, that’s all I can say really. I’m not even emotional about it really. It’s nothing to me.”

    Vanilla Ice almost had a co-sign -- Hammer -- but was called out on it by Arsenio Hall on his show in the 90s. Youtube it and watch.

  • CriticXtreme

    He's so right with this comment. Look at the last Grammy awards. This year will definitely be an invasion of white artists from the UK. Some of you folks give Eminem a ghetto pass but you miss verses like this from him and others: "I am the worst thing since Elvis Presley, to do Black Music so selfishly and use it to get myself wealthy (Hey) there's a concept that works...." Do many of you remember that Rock and Roll used to be a Black Music thing? Hip hop and other black creations are slowly being consumed by white artists and in a couple of years (or months), the world will only recognize hip hop as a white creation. Just like the white world has you thinking that the people of Kemet (egypt) were white which is a straight-up lie. Their take over is in full effect.

    yo brothers at this mag. You need the words of the people where our music is born. It is out of social injustice and perceived opportunities that feelings create soul music. Hip Hop music is soul music to me. I am a 64year old black man and a Viet nam Era Veteran. People who make a living voicing their opinion about what the people want can not report accurately what they feel unless you give them an opportunity to be heard. We small people don't have money to get in front of the mic to say what we know and feel.Media reports on strife and use words that offend . Peacemaking words are sorely needed to stop dividing America. Black People need a spokes person to represent peace and promote understanding. We don't need diplomas to prove we are intelligent and everyone has feelings.That is why I try to chose my word wisely. How to mend the wounds that hurtful words have caused is easy. Stop using them. Stop expecting a rapper or musician or anyone who has isolated themselves from walking among the public because they aren't apart of the public

    After seeing this dude comment on a variety of issues he cannot help but bring race into everything and cannot bring himself to adknowledge white people can take credit for anything.Lord Jamar how about thanking white people for inventing the sampler,without it would hip hop even exist?Oh and when whiteboys from Germany called Kraftwerk are sampled heavily in whats regarded as one of the early hip hop tracks in "planet rock" how can they be considered guests?,we're in the foundations of the house!

      stop talking about what black or white people did. These are individuals. We need to stop throwing myths around and nasty words. The color of John Lennons skin did not have anything to do with the love in his heart. I AM A BLACK MAN 64 years old. I don't care what you look like. I am interested in peace, love and helping the poor, I believe in humanity's love of life. Charity. Action. As a veteran of the US Army I learned how to get along and cooperate with all types of young people. As young innocent citizens of this country we were taught HOW to work together and saw the logic and good acquired when united in equality. America is getting in to a bad habit of saying words designed to cause division. I want to unite for peace and do it with words of wisdom


    With regards to the Miley thing, he is dead on. Miley has appropriated from different parts of hip hop/ratchet culture but she has borrowed HEAVILY from Rihanna. It has taken Rihanna 8 years to really cultivate her brand and her persona. Now I know Miley was a Disney puppet from childhood but the album before she turned into bootleg Rihanna flopped. Prior to the career changing VMA performance she was just a tabloid star seemingly looking like she has headed for a breakdown. As of now she was the most talked about celebrity of 2013. The impact of the new image (Bootleg Rihanna) coupled with controversial antics have set a precedence. Her being white is a major factor for why she has achieved so much in such a short time. In entertainment white is right.

    as racist as I am, I have to disagree with u LORD JAMAR, don't marginalize hip-hop to something only black people can contribute to. (although we did create it).as far as hip hop goes white people need black people, and black people need white people, to keep hip hop alive and the MOST IMPORTANT GENRE OF MUSIC, as it is today.

  • Anonymous

    It doesn't matter if your white or black... Good music is GOOD music... Hip Hop is a form of art to express yourself as an artist and to get your message heard... It doesn't matter what race created it... Everything evolves and the only thing that matters is to keep hip hop alive and strong... By the way Jamar, have you ever heard of Def Jam... One of the biggest hip hop labels when hip hop was making it's breakthrough to wider audiences... It was founded by a black man AND a white man... Cut this guest shit out cuz you sir don't own hip hop... Nobody does... As long as hip hop stays as versatile as it is then it will remain one of the greatest forms of music... ALL different races that participate in the hip hop culture keep it versatile... Long Live Hip Hop!!!!!

  • ola dioss

    Jamar is getting misquoted and the media are lapping it up. And this is coming from a Caucasian. And he's right, most white rappers which have come out have needed a co-sign in order to be successful (back in the day at least) that's a fact. Second of all he DID talk about blacks being guests in the NBA...so at least he is not quoting double standards. I don't agree with everything he says, but Brand Nubian are old legends of some sorts in Hip-Hop and I respect his opinion whether I agree with it or not.. People getting really butt-hurt I see. p.s Miley will never stay in the game long enough.

      Co signed, now you can be white rapper too lol. If he was lying nobody would pay it any attention.

But they are and the only thing they can say to dismiss it is that he's old or irrelevant, like that makes what he says less valid.

      White people invented picking cotton too and it wasn't considered a white occupation either. Swallow that and then count all black nba majority team owners (you can do it in one hand), so at the end of the day basketball is still white sport and blacks are just the help and product.

    Who co-signed Waka Flocka,T-Pain,Rick Ross,Meek Mill and all the other wack artists who just happen to be both black and wack as fuck !!!!


      What I am enjoying are these idiotic fanboys getting all up in their feelings about the TRUTH. Eminem was a struggling rapper, I think he may have gotten signed and then dropped prior to Dre connection. Once Dre got on-board and cosigned that is when his career took off. Em's handlers including Dre knew fully well that once the content, talent and all the manipulated controversies surrounding Em's persona were in place, the music buying public - The WHITE music buying public would fall into line. Just like Elvis clearly was not a superior talent compared to the black artists he stole from, the same can be said of Em. He is good but not great. Like Jamal said millions of records sold doesn't equate to greatness. In entertainment white is right.

    This fool Jamar is talkin' out of his ass. You don't hear anybody bitchin' and moanin' about Darius Rucker singing country. Black people can do white music, but its a big thing when white people do black music? Nah scratch that. There ain't no such THING as "White music" or "Black music". Music is universal. If you feel it in your soul, do it. Fuck what this fall off says. I cant count on all my fingers the number of WHITE MCs who have 100x more success than this Lord Jamar guy. Its ignorant to say that kind of shit. I don't understand why race always being brought up in hip-hop still. We are ALL equal in the sense of music. If you got the skill, the work ethic, and the love for hip-hop, then you good. Nothing wrong with white rappers at all unless they really pop off with some whack shit. The day a legitimate white MC starts referring to himself as a "Nigga", THEN you got something to worry about. Until then, Jamar just needs to step off. Us white rappers are not "guests" in this house of hip-hop. People of all races and ethnicitys should be welcome into it. For someone who's ancestors were segregated against, Jamar sure is seeming like a racial bigot. Im sure he's paid his dues, but that dont mean you can go off with some racist ass shit and then try to mark it as not so. It's very racist to say that white rappers don't have "the right as [he] feel[s] to voice [his] opinion". THATS ignorant.

      Can you count on any fingers currently successful BLACK country singers? Do you think the country music industry is welcoming black singers with open arms? Their version of Lord Jamar is probably in KKK and doing a good job.

    • R.Pgh

      I'd be willing to bet Darius Rucker received his fair share of racism in his early days. He didn't start singing country until after he was big, so it's not exactly the same comparison.

    Without people of color... the white race would not exist. Since 2pac is gone I guess the faggish community can rise to power without much opposition. Eminem is trash. A real MC like Ghostface would smash marshall. I also believe that Juicy J's camp ran a train on Miley Cyrus lol. ODB said an the Nigga Please album that white people was tryin' to take over this rap shit. From the Beastie boys to Iggy Azelia... they all try to act like they wear dark skin.

    The LGBT liberals were Macklemore's co-sign. Hip-Hop is not a "Black" Culture, it's a Caucasoid brand. For honest brothas like Lord Jamar(PBUH) of course you all are gonna scrutinize him. Its only because the Liberal agenda of so-called "Hip-Hop" has desensitized us from the abnormal and now not only melanated people, but caucasoids and people all over the world no longer have a proper grid to put things in it's perspective. we also lost our spines in favor of "Equality"...we're not "Equal" as we know it.

    I'll always respect Brand Nubian for the work they've created. One For All was a classic album and The Foundation was one of my favorite Golden Era albums (I don't count In God We Trust or Everything Is Everything since Grand Puba wasn't involved). That being said, Lord Jamar sounds like a bitter ass old man making contradictory and asinine statements. Good music is good music, and bad music is bad music. It shouldn't matter what color skin a person has making said music. If it sounds good to you or speaks to you, the persons appearance is irrelevant. For a guy who's spoken a number of times over his career about being profiled or prejudged, why the fuck would he turn around and do the same exact thing?

    He calls Eminem a guest in the "house" of hip hop, yet, he's not running the "house" nor the owner. Lord Jamar has done nothing memorable in rap music, the one album labeled classic (by The Source) that he's been on is by Brand Nubian...and nobody even remembers that. He's not a proper authority to label anybody anything in hip hop. Contribute some dope ness first, some substantially dope material to the art form and then make judgments. Other wise, I agree with some of his shit, especially about the homosexual shit. That never has a place in rap.


    I have done more than him for Hip Hop culture during 25 years buy graffiting and break dancing...I am White ...older than him, not guest just activist...culture belongs to everyone...Basketball was created by White people...does It mean Jordan was a guest? think about it... no matter where you from or what color you are ...the most important is what you bring and what you give to the culture !!! lord Jamar is an ignorant !!! he is a "has been"...I correct "has never been " person Rip Brand Nubian...peace UNITY love and having fun...

      Hip hop was made to give a voice for everyone to hear, wether or not it was started by black culture it has become an Urban American culture which extends beyond race or ethnicity. He has the right to voice his opinion and he's either going for "shock value" or just simply never evolved.

  • Hank Hill

    The dude is racist homophobic jackass, BUT what he's saying here is true. All you have to do is think about it. The same thing happened to rock. People naturally gravitate to artists they relate to. And since white people are the majority in this country it makes sense that any music or trend created by a minority group will eventually be taken over by the majority.

    A lot of y'all are sounding MAD IGNORANT on this post. Lord Jamar is on point. The gentrification of Black music is getting way out of hand and finally when a Black artist like Lord Jamar addresses it, he gets hated on, or people say he's jealous. For what? Who really wants to live the live of Miley Cyrus, Justin Timberlake, Justin Bieber and Robin Thicke. At least Lord Jamar is more down to earth, close to the underground and in touch with the roots of Hip Hop music more so than these wannabes that I just listed. Just straight up CARBON COPIES! Love our stuffs but hate on the ones who have contributed to Hip Hop. Y'all are some straight up DELUSIONAL HYPOCRITES acting like we live in a post racial society.


      We have got a bunch of macklemore, Em and general black sellouts here commenting that's why. Jamar was speaking NOTHING but truth but these 14 year old HipHop fans have no clue.

  • Gary

    Lord Jamar, Part of your money earned during the '90's is from white kids like me that wanted to know more about how your sound and thoughts were. Listening to the passion for your brothers and sisters in your music was/is (for the time) refreshing. You and others like Public Enemy taught me a lot about life, not just the culture but your music is in a category of Hip Hop and Rap and neither know, or ever knew what race was started Hip Hop when it started. She only knows she was started So I listened to it and learned. I also listen to West Coast Vet Paris, T-K.A.S.H and other political rhyme sayers. I absorb all of it cause I do see the struggle still continues but not because of me. I have supported Hip Hop and Rap since '82. I was twelve and saw these people (I'll call them Humans) having an amazing time listening to music and dancing in ways that I was gravitated to and researched what the deal was low and behold Hip Hop found me and hasn't let go. My grave stone will say "I am Hip Hop". Before my own religion, I am Hip Hop, before my family I am Hip Hop. before anything I am Hip Hop. I am what I am. No body owes me anything. But I owe Hip Hop everything. PaceWon has his joint "Hip-Hop" and his chorus is amazing "Hip Hop, was set out in the park, yeah thats a quote from MC Shan, without it I'd be an empty man". That is me all day To say I don't belong and that I need the acceptance is a disgrace to what Hip Hop stood for before Brand Nubian came out I guess the people that rhode with he Civil Rights Groups of the '50s and '60s should not have come together to create change and try to rid the country of racist acts. Its not perfect, but together they were trying to eradicate racism or at least build tolerance for others no matter the human.

    • Gary

      Peace HNIC, I didn't quote Shan, I quoted PaceWon. And I'll give it to you that I strayed off topic (that good kush for ya), but the fact is this... Lord Jamar is saying white fans will back a white artists that "act" black... That's pure trash. I followed because I saw a chance to learn something that my parents, school or gov. wouldn't talk about in '82. As much as segregation was gone (still happening, but abolished by law) when I was born in 1970, I could only look at history books from the gov. that showed a very small glimpse of what the real story was. My parents always pointed me in the direction of helping others and studying what others have gone through so I don't continue the "trend" and buck the system... but that did not mean they were going to show me... I discovered it on my own. Fell in love and never let go. With or without a co-sign. Back in the day when I was blasting my boombox round my hood and I heard a white dude rep, yeah, I had the feeling that whites should sit in the background... But now that Hip Hop is as global as it is... Here I am and here we are. Peace goes out.

      Oh stop it Gary, you've digressed from his main points. You quote MC shan and claim to listen to PE, yet willfully ignore the fundamental truths in Lord Jamar's statements....SMH, again.

Nah dumb fuck its because the majority of your hip-hop fans are niggas from the streets, living pay check to paycheck & most of us would rather spend 160$ on some new Jordans than spend 12$ to buy an artists album. Record labels are only going to cater to the audience that pays them, so yea they want white artist, doing black music & talking a bunch of bullshit, because shit these white kids with money they can waste, at least buy the fuckin albums. I remember back in the days when niggas liked an artists so bad, they wouldn't even hesitate to spend their last 12$ on their new album and eat Ramen Noodles for a damn week... Now niggas see that you can just download music for free and take that route instead... and then you hear these grimy ass niggas like Lord Jamar talk about white people taking black music... Nah nigga its black people who are giving it AWAY!! every dollar you spend is a vote... if y'all dumbfucks weren't so damn concerned about these bullshit ass fashion trends and more worried about the art of Hip/hop, guarantee we'd still have Nas bumping up and down the block, with Mos Def & kweli banging your car stereo on the 5'oclock radio mix on your way home.

    • asdasd

      You are proving his point because as you said the only reason white people are a part of hip hop or had anything to do with hip hop was because they easily sold so many records due to the white population in america. He is saying that these white artist are profiting off the white people in this country who want to latch on to hip hop culture and not at all from the true hip hop fans and culture which is the black community usually.

      asdas does the guy even HAVE a point? Hes just angry that hes no longer relevant and white artists are making more cash then he ever could. How does the fact that I have shown that white people have been involved in the fact hip hop even blew up prove his dribble that white people are guests... You can't be guests in something you helped build... If white people are guests in hip hop.. black people are guests in america.. You don't like the sounds of that do you? No .. ofcourse not.. because blacks ARE NOT guests in america and whites ARE NOT guests in hip hop. Hip Hop would just be a few guys freestyling on a stoop if whites didn't buy the shit.

    The funny thing is he is right.. it doesnt mean eminem is any less of a rapper but america is 70 percent white... It is marketing 101, think about how many black main characters in videogames there are? When you sell something in america you are selling to a majority white market. Its not racism really, just peopel are more comfortable and can relate easier to people of their own skin.

    If white rappers are guests in the house of hip hop, black players are guests in the house of basketball.

    • 1984

    why you keep posting lord jamars comments, hhdx do you have something against white artists?

  • cp3

    Basketball was invented by a white dude from Canada. So I guess all black people are a guest in basketball? Sounds pretty stupid to me.

  • RealTalk

    this guy needs to quit. we've all had enough of his racist generalizations.

  • UmadHo

    A lot of white devils on here commenting lmao. This dude may be old but he is speaking the TRUTH.

    • fool ^

      White devils? Go back to the jungle wit ur 5% friends. And dnt shout racism from me cos ur comment is itself racist

  • Joseph Young

    People say this about Jazz a lot too. That white musicians are a novelty but the real music was made by Black men and only black men. It's a crazy statement in Jazz and it's crazy in Hip Hop. What about Brother Ali? Aesop Rock? This guy has a biased view and is popular enough to have people listen to his racist shit.

  • cp3

    Why does VLAD keep on giving this guy a platform to speak on? Dude is obviously sour that his rap career is long and gone and has nothing better to do than hate on successful people and stir ish up.

  • Bandidos

  • Jigga

    HE'S right. and as a white man I can say it annoys the fuck outta me

  • wade

  • Anonymous

    This dude sounds fucking ignorant. Who the fuck is this guy?

  • Nik

    Who the fuck is Lord Jamar and why does anybody care about the opinion of old, outdated & irrelevant rappers?



  • Slumerican

    Even he said it white people are the majority...so theres not a chance that some of them are in the ghetto as well? living side by side with other races? this dude has a one track mind and its hellbent on being racist to white people. we stopped the KKK for a reason.

  • Slumerican

    again...this racist mother fucker... Its not black music. its street music. Get your terms right. If he called it street music this whole interview would be thrown out the window. Its about who is living on the streets. Black people are NOT the only ones on the streets. like for real put yourself in someone elses shoes for once you fucking hypocrital bitch.

      White people always steals from the black man though - pretty sure that's the other way around and crime statistics will back that up

    • Jake Steed beeyotch

      I agree with Bitchpleeez. Im white, I personally would not want to dress like beeners or asians or nerds. Blacks are the most immitated, from fashion down to music and wordplay for a reason, they have style and they set trends through originality. Blacks are amongst the best athletes in the world in a variety of sports. I've been wearing basketball shoes from black nba players all my life. I've been listening to black rappers all my life.

    • Bitchpleeez

      Last time I check Hip Hop was invented by BLACK PEOPLE. White people always steals from the black man though. The black man is the most imitated person on the planet. Deal with it.

  • Anonymous

    if i could, i would kill this faggot, and im black believe it or not....goddamn this muhfucka never shuts his mouth

  • son of a sax

    So whut sayin Lord J?!?! Yes, blacks set the trends. We all know that and its been like that for awhile now. We say its fresh and the whole world gravitates to it. You aint saying nuthin new. Blacks invented rock n roll. Elvis comes along, blows up and gets the credit. 1nce again, nuthin new. History repeats itself. It seems, as of lately, you got alot to say. The way you're coming off seems kinda bitter. Just relax. Oh yeah, 3rd Bass didn't have a co-sign either and we loved'em. And Serch (along with other) co-signed Nas

    I usually don't do this,but fuck it...props to Lord Jamar for putting his name out there again,real genius move from him,wonder when his album's dropping LMAO

    • Anonymous

      Putting lol or lmao at the end of the post doesnt make you appear confident in what you said or makes us like your sarcasm. I guess he cant be interviewed and say what he feels. I guess he was supposed to say "i love all white rappers" to satisfy people like you? And not what he said (cuz he didnt spit out hate either, fyi!). People decided to spin it around so therefor he has to keep coming back & correct it time & time again. Of course Vlad knows his spins & these interviews gets him hits, which he loves. Hence why he keeps interviewing him & asking him about it. Doesnt negate Jamar's answers though.
