Jay Electronica recalls RZA calling southern rappers slow and questioning their intelligence and how he felt about that.
it was, it was, it was, it was, it was, it was, it was, it was, it was, it was, it was, it was, it was, it was, it was, it was, it was, it was, it was, it was, …
Finally some body step up and said that, no disrespect to NY because you maked Hip Hop first but ya’ll real bitter about the current state of Hip Hop.The reason is ya’ll music have not evolved and ya’ll support the wrong kats The Dipset is trash G-Unit trash Manio trash the best thing ya’ll had was Wu-Tang but when they started going deeper with there rhymes ya’ll backed off.No Loyalty everyone is for themselves look at your web most of sites but southern rappers on it because we hot right now.
P.S. and please don’t say Vado he’s trash.
uhm “maked” is not a word. . its made . .
Jay Electronica is fire, but your wrong about one thing, and no disrespect to the south, but the independent game did not start in the south, it started in Cali by a top 5 dead or alive rapper by the name of E-40. if your dont believe , do the research.
E-40 Top 5 DOA? Get outta here with that.
@ Philthy it was the Geto Boys do your research clown you must be from The Bay ya’ll don’t even support west Coast artist on the radio station. @ Max Love uhm “maked” is not a word. . its made . .I must be telling the truth because that’s all you can find that I said wrong it’s ok your a bitter 50 cent fan.
SMH at Jay Electronica! They way he talking, like all NY artist are straight garbage “burn these ni99as alive,” “who seeing who.” “yall should not have said all that dumb ish yall was talking.”
First things first, if you listen to Jay Electronica he sounds like he is from NY “jacking our slang” (pun intended) “popping.”
Second he goes into lyricism and names some of the south’s best lyricist in a way that downplays all of NY’s best lyricist. Guru (God rest his soul) was one of, if not the best lyricist of all time, Jay-Z one of the best, Nas, and we even have young up and coming lyricist like Diggy Simmons.
Wack music is wack music no matter where it is from. The south makes it with all that snap music, and the east makes it with “Cheese and Crackers” and “Chicken Noodle Soup.” We are all guilty of it. Unintelligent music is unintelligent music.
Stop hating the south you FUCK NIGGAS like he said show me one artist that can get with 3000 and i will show you a lier
You call out the bad rappers from NY so let me point out the garbage you have down south: soulja boi, Roscoe Dash, Travis Porter, Gucci Mane, Shawty lo, Oj tha Juiceman, Wakka Flocka, and countless other garbage rappers. Further more all I ever hear from the south is swag, money, hoes, cars, and random dances. The only artist I listen to from the south is T.I, Jay Electronica, and Outkast.
real talk, i’m from NY and the dumbest people I’ve met are from the South. not trollin. Jay Electronica is just an overachiever and the future of real hip hop.
Man look theres dope rappers down south, and theres wack rappers down south.
These dope rappers up north, and theres wack rappers up north.
Can we please stop with the North and South thing please???
Gamora u are probably the dumbest person on earth for even making that statement. Nigga yo grandparents or great grandparents are probably from the south u dummy.
Jay is speaking da truth.
U dumb 2. Nigga u just name 3 people out of how many rappers that ever came out of NY. My point exactly!!!
philthy p u are dumb 2 nigga. He meant as by record labels. Even before motown, the south had independent labels for black people. We created the foundation u dummy. Do your research and E-40 IS TRASH!!!!!!!!!!
north, east, west, south, if you think black people anywhere are less intelligent than anyone else, go suck yo madda
@12 Just for you I’m going to name a plethora of Lyricist from NY. Let me start from the decease… Big L, Big Pun, Biggie Smalls, Guru!!!
Now I’m going to mention some of the greats living… Jay-Z, Nas, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Jadakiss, LL Cool J.
Now I’m going to name a few current artist who could get lyrical if they want… Fabolous, Lloyd Banks, Cam’ron (these three are killing the mixtape game BTW).
Let me name some old lyricist from NY who are not current anymore, well maybe on the underground… Cornmega, AZ, Canibus (need I say more), DMX.
I’m also going to name a few up and coming Lyricist… Cory Gunz, Diggy Simmons, Square Off, Vado.
Lil Mama would flame most rappers from the south, lol! As well as some of the SMACK rappers.
Okay I love how y’all act like there ain’t truth to southern rappers being garbage. Are there nice MCs from the south…hell yeah. Are those rappers the exception or the rule? If you are honest with yourself you will say they are the exception. Now that has changed within recent times but take it back and that was how it was….real rap.
Shit is more balanced now but please don’t re-write history by saying that it was always like that because it wasn’t…keep it funky.
This ngga is pure fuckn lame. Dumb muthafuca
@ Pain you make no sense say Luda, Stat Quo, Little Brother, Jay Cole, or Dead Prez and @ The Boss, please I feel sorry for you because I listen to Hot 97 and they play Drake and Wayne all day and Canibus is from Canada. All ya’ll quit trying to make a point all he said was quit hatting on the south.PERIOD
I’m a huge fan of Electronica’s music, however, he has done the same thing he had a problem with RZA about. Yes, it was stupid for RZA to make a blanket statement about a group of people, BUT Electronica is doing the same by saying NOBODY in NY is seeing……….WHOMEVER. Has he lost his mind? Also, to say, “RZA is a beautiful brother…” like he’s on some peace shit, but to turn around and further divide is VERY disingenuous. Again, I’m a huge fan, but this interview was not a good move. I’m not going to get into who I think is better than who, because I undertand that it is a matter of preference, but by saying nobody is seeing……WHOMEVER, he is doing just that. Bad move. Also, like it or not, in terms of the music, he is more along the lines of a NY cat. Too funny.
the majority of the south is wack!point blank period…nobody is hating people
…plus the south got their style & sound frm CALI….and now wu-tang is about to fuck up jay electrona lol

Im gald u know your history and di your homework. I will agree with u but u need to stop right here. Everyone else is TRASH!!! Fabolous been fell off. He trying to flow like a sotuhern rapper. Have u noticed that lately.
Camron aint shit without Dipset and that’s why he is reuniting with Juelz and Jim.
All Lloyd Banks have is punch lines. He really don’t have a concept, nor a consistent flow he his songs. And he needs to leave 50 if he wants to emerge and become better as far as himself in general.
Canibus is lyrical, but where is he now. No where 2 be found. He fell off when LL cool J destoryed that his career over 10 years ago. AND WHO THE FUCK IS CORNMEGA ???
Lil mama is a fake Foxy brown, who she stole her whole style from and Vado is alright. Not good but ok.
Cory Gunz and Diggy are nice, especially Diggy.
@21 I meant Cormega, I was typing kind of fast and slipped the “N” in there. But other than that you basically agreed with everything I said. I said Im’ going to name a few NY lyricist who are not current and I did. To emphasize a bit of past, present, future and underground NY lyricism.
@17 Canibus grew up in several places, one of which was the Bronx.
In regards to Jay Electronica, overall this seems to be his angle. He disses NY every time he gets a chance, but yet he is always here and sounds like he is from here.
@17 Hot 97 went commercial years ago. That radio station is one of the most tuned into in the country. It is only right that the major labels get a hold of the radio station and flood it with commercial hits. Funk Master Flex was playing Usher’s OMG ft Will I AM the other night. Me being an avid Funk Flex listener he would have never played that BS. That is coming from the powers that be, above his head.
Im from south florida its funny i never heard 50 Cent being a C.O., Jay-Z having a oil company and come to find out its a fake company, Never Jada go to med school and trying to act like a goon. The south rappers are little screwed. I gotta give props to UGK(rip PIMP C), Scarface, Luke, Trick Daddy, Outkast, Goodie Mob, Geto Boys, Master P legends of the game.
that north/ south thing is willie lynch being played out in 2010,google the willie lynch letter,ny hip hop is not on top because ny blacks in general have always been closed minded,which is the biggest display of ignorance and low intelligence there is,i remember how outkast and death row were treated at the ’95 source awards,i remember not only did rza question southern black intelligence but also claimed we didn’t see crack until the mid 90’s,i’ll say once and for all people are people,i’ve been to ny and i’ve seen the good,bad,and ugly,and was born and raised in the south and i’ve seen the same
hopefully what jay electronica says is goin to spark some sense in a lot of rappers from north to south and make them step they craft up and battle jay electronica. but as usual wit black ppl it will only spark ignorance and tough shit talkin.
I hope ny rapper take the bait and show niggas we still nice wit the lyrics and we birth jay electronica whole style
I LIKED J ELECTRONICA LIKED UNTIL I HEARD THIS SHIT HES FEELING HIMSELF WHO DOES HE SOUND LIKE (KILLAH PRIEST) WHERE IS KILLA PRIEST FROM NY THEN HE SAID SOME NAMES LIKE 8 BALL MGJ DEVIN THE DUDE BUN B NONE OF THEM IS NICE ENOUGH TO BURN NOBODY TO ASHES THE INDUSTRY STARTED TO PROMOTE SOUTHERN MUSIC TO DUMB IT DOWN 4 THE MASSES NY RAPPERS WERE OVER ALOT OF CATS HEADS THEY CANT COMPREHEND AND HE CONTRIDICTED HIMSELF BY SAYING HE WOULDNT BE WHO HE IS TODAY IF IT WERENT 4 WU TANG SO THIS INTERVIEW WAS POINTLESS
^ j. coles from NC…he’s pretty nice
the south is ruining hip hop. please stay out. with some exception ie outkast etc
Outkast, Geto Boys, UGK, 8 Ball & MJG, T.I., Jay Elect, Rick Ross, C2 Weezy, B.o.B., J. Cole, and The Clipse.
But the best lyricist do come out of NY. That doesn’t mean people from the south are dumb. And what Jay Elect said was true. Especially about you not being able to grow agriculture in order to survive if shit hit the fan.
FACT OF THE MATTER IS THAT NYC AND THE EAST PUT EVERYONE ON.. PAY HOMAGE. MOST OF THE PEOPLE HE NAMED WERE MADE OFFICIAL/C0-SIGNED BY THE EAST AND MORE SPECIFICALLY NEW YORK FUCKEN CITY..
T.I. – WAS RUNNIN BEHIND JIM JONES
LIL WAYNE – RUNNIN BEHIND DIP SET
RICK FAKE ROSS – NOW ROSS WITH DIDDY –
THE SAGA CONTINUES.
FUCK OUTTA HERE.. BK ALL DAY. NYC ALL DAY.
Divide and conquer. its no shocker. all of yall above me need to quit. the tactic is legit. yall still aint learned yet. the trap been set. since we came on them boats. easiest way to quelch and opponent aint a rope. its from within. and from division, subtraction is complete. they come thru and sweep “the streets”.
This dude is gettin a little too hyped up. First of he ain’t all that and when I saw him in Charlotte he was on some soft shit, so what’s this all about?
1. folks are lettin the emotions and dummies create a riff between family!
2. how logical is it to compare a region comprised of like 12 states to NYC… smh
3. folks always gonna hate but on a grand scale noone’s been hatin on the south! people been workin together for years…
exactly @33 that tells you NY is better if they compare the whole south to 1 city
this whole everybody vs the south deal is only abt popularity & money. everybody knows tht hip hop started in ny & no one’s forgotten that, but the min southern cats start gettin popular in the rap game then niggas get all salty. you guys look at the south like we did something wrong to you. we paid homage to all the greats & didnt disrespect anybody. as soon as we start gettin shine you degraded us. u try & take credit for the lyrical rappers tht we do have and say they swaggerjacked somebody frm the east coast. even the east coast’s most successful rapper (jayz)swaggerjacked & not to mention 1 of his most succesful hits was with southern rappers(ugk). now since somebody from the south voicing how they feel abt yall lookin down on us everybody’s gettin mad. like we supposed to just sit around & take it when you motherfuckers diss us. since jay elect is lyrical & u cant put up a valid argument or say the same dumb shit abt the south not bein lyrical u say his whole style came 4rm ny. u niggas is full of shit. there are way more wack rappers in ny than lyrical just lik the south. if we’re so illiterate & non lyrical then why waste ur time even comin at us with all tht bs.
@35 BECAUSE YOU HALF OF THE SOUTH IS TRASH WE DON’T HATE ON REAL DUDES WHO MAKES REAL HIP HOP FROM THE HEART BUT WE HATE TRASH ASS RAPPERS.
TELL ME WHY NY SHOULD RESPECT DUDES LIKE OJ DA JUICEMAN,SOULJA BOY,SHORTY LOW,WAKA FLOCKA,GUCCI MANE AND THE LIST GOES ON…… GIME A DAMN GOOD REASON WHY SHOULD WE RESPECT THEM?
THE REST TALENTED DUDES WHO KNOWS WHAT THE HIP HOP IS ABOUT GET RESPECT IN NY SP STFU IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU TALKING ABOUT.
@ 36 The killer is that we (Southerners) don’t really give a damn about NY and the vast majority of southerners would never move there. Too crowded, too rude, too expensive… hell I’m in Atlanta and if I see another New Yorker here I’ll probably have a conniption. Half of the East Coast and NY is trash as well so miss me with that everyone in NY is either Guru or KRS1. That’s just how life goes, a few rise to the top and the rest are mediocre. Trust me… we don’t give a flying fuck about getting respect from NY.
I know the eastcoast think they run the rap game, but the game hasn’t been on their side in a while. The eastcoast ppl and their rappers are the biggest haters ever. Not just on other geographic rap areas but on themselves as well and that’s why they don’t sell as much as the southern rappers. Southern rap supporters are loyal and they will always support a rapper they like especially people in rural country areas, because sometimes music is all they have to keep their minds off their situation.
Eastcoast rappers can never have that type of support from any region especially their own, because Eastcoast ppl have that white racist view of the game. Whereas white racist think they built America, and think they should run America, and the simple fact remains that their numbers are dwindling. The simple fact that other ethnicities are coming up they can’t stand it. I see the same mindset with the east coast rapes where they think they invented rap and therefore everything should go through them but that isn’t the case anymore.
The east has one really good rapper rapping today, (the illuminati dude) they have a few pretty good rappers who can’t sell shit. And the rest sound the same and always have the same criteria of material. Hate on the south by calling them dumb and say they don’t rap about nothing than, proceed to rap about the same shit some southern rappers talk about but only with a east coast accent. ITs ridicules, the east will never rise again, just like the white southern confederate states, and even though still to this day White southern racist profess they will. Until you loser stop hating you will never sell and all the east coast will be is a bunch of hating ass, crabs in a barrel, mad ass NIGGERS. Believe that and increase the peace.
And to all the dumb ass New Yorkers. Just because a person speaks proper english doesn’t me he’s biting you style. NY’ers say son, kid, yameen and all that other silly house nigga shyt. I never heard him use that bull shyt ny slang. Get your facts straight house niggas.
BEST FROM THE SOUTH!!!!!!!
SCREWED UP CLICK
BIG DIRTY PIE
MAYNNE YALL JUST DONT KNOW ABOUT THAT SCREWED UP TEXAS G SHIT!!!!!!
Ny copied souths slang, but nobody said the slang was the bad thing about southern rap, what is bad about it is that the majority of southern rap is very very very very slow and has weak lyrics, but the production is good im not gunna lie and thats the only thing i like about southern rap, and when ppl talk about the whole south being wack, i think they talkin about the majority, because there are ppl in the south that are pretty lyrical like outkast,ugk,jay elect, j coke, i can name more but the point is that the majority of south is wack, not all and i think that most ppl frum up here in ny need to think before they talk
