Lord Jamar Says George Zimmerman Is Getting "Paid Off Of Murder"

Lord Jamar questions George Zimmerman being labeled a celebrity, speaks on the psychological message behind a possible boxing match involving Zimmerman.

While speaking with Vlad TV recently, Brand Nubian rapper Lord Jamar addressed the highly controversial celebrity boxing match that is rumored to take place between George Zimmerman and rapper DMX.

Jamar revealed that he has no problem with DMX putting his hands on Zimmerman, but did express concern over Zimmerman receiving a check for the fight and being dubbed a celebrity due to the boxing match. He also stated that “anybody with decency” shouldn’t support such an event.

“Do I want Zimmerman to get paid for it,” he said when asked to share his thoughts on the fight. “Do I want Zimmerman to have the title of celebrity while it’s happening? Absolutely not. And people trying to say ‘Oh no, well the new definition of celebrity is someone who’s known.’ The root word of celebrity is celebrate. So, celebrities are people that are to be celebrated. How are you going to be a celebrity from killing a 17-year-old child? And now you want to box when you claim you were getting your ass beat that made you have to shoot a mothafucka in the first place. How ironic is that? And now we gon’ call you a celebrity? Come on, man. That’s crazy. And so now the psychological message that is being sent is ‘Kill a black youth and you can get fame and fortune.’ That’s the psychological message. Everybody knows George Zimmerman. And now he’s getting ready to get paid off of murder basically.”

The New York emcee again stressed that he has no problem with the physical component of the match and even revealed that he would personally put his hands on Zimmerman if he had the opportunity, but is more concerned with Zimmerman being paid for the fight.

“So yeah, would I like to see DMX beat the shit out of him? I’d love to beat the shit out of him,” Jamar said. “Free of charge. You understand what I’m saying? Where he don’t get paid, I don’t get paid. He gotta pay his own fuckin doctor bills. You dig what I’m saying?”

Prior to speaking on the celebrity boxing match, Jamar offered up a few details on his relationship with DMX, an artist he says he met before the Yonker’s rappers rise to fame.

“I had met X just when Brand Nubian was about to come out,” he said. “We might have seen each other before on some emcee shit here and there, but like I started hooking up with him trying to record him and shit like that. We had a little studio in New Rochelle and shit like that…And then he was fucking with the drugs and all that. And I’m just trying to get on myself. So, I was like ‘Man, I ain’t got time for [y’all].’ And he wasn’t—it was a few more years before he came out.”

First announced weeks ago, the celebrity boxing match involving Zimmerman, who was found not guilty of second-degree murder and manslaughter last year, has found itself with a number of possible competitors.

In addition to DMX, Los Angeles rapper Game reportedly expressed interest in fighting Zimmerman and Chicago emcee Kanye West was also mentioned as an artist Zimmerman would like to see in the ring.

      gtfo and stop encouraging his racist bullshit. It has nothing to do with race. The kid could have been white, asian, mexicain fuckin purple, who gives a shit. Bunch of weak ass black people constantly pulling that race card out. Be the smarter one and stop encouraging this old racist bitter faggott.

    I love all these Lord Jamar updates - now if he could come up with some half decent tracks again...

  • Devout

    GZ you said that it was God's plan that you take TM's life...So then, is it equally God's plan for you to be homeless without a normal life..? I think so...You LIED about all of the events that led to you taking TM's life...If you had told the TRUTH, then the TRUTH would have set you free...now you must live with that every day of your life. The only way out is to ADMIT your wrong and serve time for it in the Florida Department of Corrections...

    Rappers have been getting paid off of murder for decades! Lord Jamar strikes again. His wannabe, pseudo-intellectual comments almost always come around to bite him in the ass.

  • Fish

    Great to see the weekly 'Lord Jamar Fuckery Update', interviews that are so easy to pick holes in it's unbelievable, so here we go. Zimmerman (not black) getting paid off murder - Jamar says NO Gucci Mane and Cassidy (black) getting paid off murder - Jamar says NOTHING.

    He's actually making an agreeable point for once, but it's one that many people are making and I doubt hiphopdx would be publishing it if Jamar hadn't been making a lot of controversy recently

    If you want Jamar to go away then quit catching feelings and adding to the comments on his article,

  • Anonymous

    All his Prop Black stances become null and void when you realize his rants are being exploited for website traffic by DJ Vlad's jew ass so he can sell ad space on it for a higher amount..... Just another black man acting a fool to make money for a white man, nothing more, nothing less

      Stupidest comment I have ever heard. Jamar is being Hip Hoop something you have no idea about. He is spreading the message for the better of the Hip Hop community. Does not matter that he may not get paid for it. Hip Hop is not about getting money for everything. He is protecting and defending his culture like he is supposed to so that it will be around long from now to benefit the younger ones on the come up. Here is a legend who cares about hip hop and what its about in this instance.

    better than you white faggotts giving your two cents is the reason hip hop died

    The only reason this piece of shit is relevant is because HHDX keeps him in the news. Danielle Harling quit promoting this bullshit you dumb fat b!tch it makes you and HHDX look bad.
