After taking to Twitter and conducting an interview with Vlad TV to criticize Kanye West’s fashion choices in wearing a leather kilt, Brand Nubian’s Lord Jamar has released a diss track aimed at the rapper titled “Lift Up Your Skirt.”
On the cut, the Five Percent philosopher goes in the G.O.O.D. Music rapper, putting him in the crosshairs for introducing skinny jeans to the Hip Hop community and calling him a “fag.”
“Somebody mad at my hashtag / Instagram black man, lookin’ half a fag / With a blazer and dress, I’m just amazed at the mess / Pioneer of this queer shit is Kanye West,” he raps. “Yeezy introduced the skinny jeans to the Rap scene / Then wore a fuckin’ skirt on the video screen / Then he wore it again at a memorial / I can’t pretend that the shit ain’t deplorable.”
Jamar, who gives props to ‘Ye for his music on the song, recently spoke to HipHopDX about his stance on homosexuality and using anti-gay epithets in his lyrics. “First of all, my stand on homosexuality is I don’t agree with it but everybody has their own free will in this world,” he said. “And if that’s how you choose to live, you do you. I don’t agree with it; I feel like it’s a distortion of mind. But that’s up to me. You don’t have to live in my universe and I don’t have to live in yours. So I don’t regret nothing I said … ‘cause it’s all real.”
