Lord Jamar Says Jail Is Like Vegas: "What Happens In Jail Stays In Jail"

Lord Jamar criticizes Young Thug for "effeminate shit" and says he's not feeling the rapper.

In his latest interview with VladTV, Lord Jamar spoke at length about his view that many young men emasculate themselves after being prompted by a question about Young Thug. Initially criticizing Young Thug’s intersection of fashion choice and violent image, Lord Jamar went on to detail his perception of feminine attire in gangster culture.

“I’m not feeling him,” Jamar said of Young Thug. “I seen the nigga in a video where he came out and all his niggas got guns, they pulling out guns, but he got on some real womanly looking type shirt on...The more effeminate shit that you do, the more that you’re gonna have to do other shit to try to prove your manhood. These niggas will wear dresses and all this type of shit but now they pulling out guns and all this type of shit trying to prove that, ‘Yo, I don’t give a fuck if I got a dress on I’m still a hard nigga. Don’t front on niggas.’ Throwing up gang signs and all that type of shit. Where they do that at? I’ve known some real gangbanging motherfuckers in my life. I’m talking Cali gangbanging. I’ve never seen a gangbanger dude wearing a dress or no shit like that, throwing up signs and all of that. The more you effeminate yourself the more subconsciously you’re gonna wanna prove that you’re masculine.”

Asked about the prevalence of homosexuality in many jails, Lord Jamar offered his opinion that many men treat sentences like a stay in Las Vegas.

“Jail for a lot of niggas back in the day was like Vegas,” he said. “‘What happens in jail stays in jail.’ Which was not cool. Which was a weakness of mind. But a lot of these niggas they might fuck a nigga in the ass in jail but then when they come out they not fucking with niggas. They was only doing it ‘cause they was locked up and they was savages and couldn’t resist the sexual urge to not fuck nothing and went ahead and fell victim to fucking a nigga in the ass but when they get out in the world they back fucking with girls and they not doing that at all. They’re damn sure not running around—even if they caught this nigga in a dress somewhere privately, it’s not like he coming out on the set. He’s not coming out on the set with a fucking dress on. Even if these niggas did this shit in private on the low, they not coming out like that in public type of shit.

“I’m not saying this nigga Young Thug is gay,” he added. “I don’t know his sexual preference. What I’m saying is by emasculating yourself, that psychologically makes you want to prove your masculinity. Now when you get in a beef with a motherfucker, instead of being able to handle it in a more calm, collected way, a truly manly way where you don’t have to fly off the handle, you might be more apt to pull out your gun now and try to shoot a nigga to prove something to a motherfucker. To prove that you a real man. Because psychologically they looking at you in a certain kind of way. You know they looking at you in that way. You want to prove, ‘Nigga I don’t give a fuck. I know you see me with this dress on but I’m still a hard nigga. I’ll still pop your motherfucking ass.’ That actually helps lead to the bigger problems that exist within our society. Murder and shit like that. It’s these emasculated young boys who don’t have no father figure in the hood. Sometimes oppressed by their mothers. Who now go out here and disrespect women. Try to prove their manhood. Out here running around having mad babies with different girls, not taking care of them, thinking they’re being a man. All because they were emasculated in the beginning. This shit affects everyone. It affects us. What another man wears does affect you. It affects his mind and what he does in society. It affects what happens in society and what happens in society is gonna affect you either directly or indirectly.”

    Jamar must know first hand if he's giving so much detail. Jamar must me hating on everyone cuz ain't nobody asking for his feature on anything. He sucks. Sadat X n Puba only dudes anybody wants to get on a record. They need to stop giving this old fart any chance to speak about anything current in hip hop. You haven't been relevant in decades. By the way young thug sucks. I also grew up on the 90s hip hop but I also like Kanye TDE ACTION BRONSON ILL BILL Big Krit and so on. Jamar is just the biggest hater of the decade.

      Does being irrelevant make what he says not true? What he talks about is relevant don't shoot the messenger.

    Who the fuck is Lord Jamar and why do you keep posting the dumb shit he says? Jesus, he's just another ignorant ass hoodrat and no one gives a fuck about his thoughts on anything.

    how is the industry turning them into bitches? did the industry force them to wear skirts and european fashion made by white gays overseas? did the industry make young thug paint his fingernails? He can do whatever he wants but the industry don't have to promote it. By doing so eventually kids that think that shit is cool eventually will turn into bitches as well, especially if Young thug or someone else blows up off of that shit.

  • Justin

    Ya'll kids don't know shit about hip hop, most of your retarded asses were probably born in the late 80's and 90's. What you fail to see is that the industry is turning black men and the rap game into a bunch of bitches, that is what he is saying, what a man does in his own home is no ones business but his own. What he is telling you is he is turning brothers into industry slaves and punk bitches with music. the only real music left, the only honest shit left, ya dig? now figure your shit out. I think a lot you listen to Young THug and ride his dick. Study your history, Mother Fuckers like that don't do shit but fuck it up for the rest of the community, and it is not just him but the corporate music industry and hollywood...check yer head homie before you get all butt hurt over some shit you don't understand

    • Money First

      @Anonymous....No the industry may not be turning them into "bitches" as you say but they are promoting it which honestly is just as bad.....Money is the bottom line motive so at the end of the day it will get worse before it gets better!!

    • stop being stupid

      Yes they did, do you think he would get any attention if he dressed like a man? If was saying something positive? Nope So why are you defending a population control strategy?

  • Sonnin You

    Everything Lord Jamar says is true and relevant. Anyone that disputes his right to speak and the urgency in listening is a uncle tommin', coward. You don't need a shitty record with DJ Mustard and a hook done by Future in autotune to have a right to speak on how record executives use rappers as pawns to destroy Black and Hispanic communities. It was criminal activity. Then drug use. Then pimping. Now homosexuality. I don't hear or see this bullshit in their music. Just ours. Again, if you disagree you're an uncle tom and a coward. UNCLE TOM. COWARD. (you) (YOU!)

      You can't counter what he says so the best you can do is call him bitter?

      He has the right to speak, more power to him, nobody is stopping him from doing these interviews, however, the rest of the world also has the right to not care what he thinks and carry on about their business, which seems to be the root of his frustrations. He's bitter because the rest of the world won't do what he tells them to do.

    Funny thing with y'all fruits, talking negative shit about Lord Jamar amounts to jack because like him or not-fuck the messenger-the message is true. He is talking about men taking responsibility for being men i.e 1) don't need to be violent to resolve conflicts which leads to your ass getting locked up for some bullshit. 2) going around having babies creating future hood rats and jailbirds. All to prove that you are a 'man' when in truth you are being a bitch.

      Thats kind of the problem, besides the fact that none of this shit is actual news and this site is getting shittier and shittier everyday. Nobody gives a fuck what Lord Jamar has to say, he doesn't make music. I haven't seen this site post about people petitioning HOT 97 because it's garbage and it knowingly plays garbage because "they have kids to feed", but Slim Thug's vasectomy/corn removal/Lord Jamar's opinions on race and music are actual news to this place. Go to pigeonsandplanes.com for hiphop, this place hasn't lost it's touch, it's gone Hellen Keller.

    "Lord Jamar declares that what happens in jail stays in jail, all words are final, the voice of the people has spoken" ...is what DX probably wanted to put as the title I honestly bet they put these articles up when their site isn't getting many views, just so people will be guaranteed to click just to leave a comment. Also, when was the last time DX had an exclusive? At least other sites have worthy exclusives. One site that starts with a V is doing pretty well right now, probably intruding on DX's market share a bit.
