Things got a little uncomfortable towards the end of The LOX interview with DJ Whoo Kid on the radio personality’s Shade 45 show, Whoolywood Shuffle. They went through the years of beef and situations that could have turned violent, and how they believe beefs are now media driven. When asked about Young M.A covering “Money, Power, Respect,” no one heard her version except Styles P, who heavily cosigned the record.
Then the interview took a turn, where it seemed as if something was eating away at Jadakiss throughout the entire interview. He completely snapped and didn’t hold back, blaming industry executive Lyor Cohen for everything wrong with rap music today.
“Lyor Cohen is the reason for Hip Hop turning out the way it has, with him [Lyor] controlling all these younger artists and their 720 deals,” he said. “You don’t need to learn your history anymore, all you need is green dreads, a Rolex and you’re good.”
The group believes the industry will shift and cater more to single deals to have more turnaround time in going through artists. They closed with an ominous warning. “Those Instagram pics with money being held to your ear like a phone, be careful because you only own $20 of that, it’s like a collect call. Also, be careful they don’t 360 your single deal and 360 your allowance you receive from your parents.”
Watch it above.
