Lord Jamar Tells White Rappers To Play Your Position

It’s no secret that Lord Jamar isn’t exactly fond of homosexuality, especially in hip-hop. Here is a recent clip that I’m sure will be making headlines in the rap world. He’s pretty adamant about his beliefs. While he has every right to voice his opinion, so does rappers like Macklemore, even if you aren’t a fan. And not for nothing, Lord Jamar freely showing his penis in HBO’s OZ was as gay friendly as you could get. What are your thoughts on the subject?

Lord Jamar criticizes Macklemore for pushing an equal rights agenda, feels rap is gay friendly.

Brand Nubian rapper Lord Jamar offered up a few bold statements about race and homophobia in Hip Hop during a recent interview with Vlad TV as he brought up the likes of Macklemore and Queens emcee Action Bronson.

In his mild diatribe, which stemmed from the New York rapper being questioned about Macklemore’s “Same Love” record, Lord Jamar went on to refer to white rappers as guests in Hip Hop and criticized those he feels have overstepped their boundaries as guests.

“Okay, white rappers, you’re coming to this almost as a guest,” Lord Jamar announced. “Okay, matter of fact you are guests in the house of Hip Hop. Just because you have a hit record doesn’t give you the right as I feel to voice your opinion. White rappers, those of y’all who really studied the culture, that truly love Hip Hop and all that, keep it real with yourself, you know this is a black man’s thing. We started this. This is our shit. We’ve allowed you, those of you who’ve proved your skill and all that, we’ve allowed you to come in and kick your shit, make yourself known. You know what I mean? And if you have enough respect for the culture we fuck with you. But don’t push it too far.”

With records like “Punks Jump Up To Get Beat Down,” a record in which Lord Jamar raps, “Did you want some more? I didn’t think so/Just got whipped like a faggot in the clink,” the rapper has defended his use of the gay slur “faggot” on numerous occasions. Despite the rapper’s past use of the word, he does feel that Hip Hop is in fact gay friendly.

Shortly after declaring Hip Hop gay friendly, Lord Jamar went on to criticize Macklemore for pushing an agenda in a genre he feels the Seattle wordsmith isn’t a part of. His comments were made in reference to Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ “Same Love,” a song that addresses same-sex marriage, as well as Macklemore’s continued push for equal rights.

“Yeah, I say rap is gay friendly…Making a song like that is like feeling that you have the same footing as any other Hip Hop artist and to me you don’t,” Lord Jamar revealed. “You don’t. Like I can’t go to somebody else’s house and even though they let me wear their clothes and eat their food, that’s not my house. That’s their house. And I can’t get so comfortable in their house that I feel like I can now start talking house politics…To me when people like Macklemore come out with songs like that, I know he loves Hip Hop and all that, but he’s trying to push an agenda that him as a white man feels is acceptable.”

Most recently, Lord Jamar drew attention after releasing “Lift Up Your Skirt,” a diss record aimed at fellow rapper Kanye West. On the song, Lord Jamar refers to ‘Ye as “half a fag” as he spits, “Somebody mad at my hashtag/Instagram black man, lookin’ half a fag.”

    I’ve never listened to Macklemore, so I don’t have full context of this interview. He raises some interesting points, but I am not sure if they are 100% valid if pushed to the extreme logic.

  2. What a homophobic twat. There’s no denying he has been part of some great tunes- and a truly terrible solo album. He looks all sad & confused, like a white Grandad who has been told that he is not allowed to use the world ‘coloured’ to describe black people any more. Times have moved on, or at least I hope they have…

        Homophobia is a made up term used by mainstream agendas suitable for the time and place seen fit. Don’t fuck around and try and act like the reasonable ones. I’m not even religious and I know if there is no potency then it ain’t real (IE: no baby making ability). People are free to choose but perversion isn’t/can’t be on par with natural order.

    I’m not gay, and i dont care about it, and i just dont think about it. constantly. like so many homophobic people do. never understood that, why all these anti gay folks just cannot stop thinking about it. in detail, constantly, to the point that they have to talk about it. constantly.
    kinda lost me with the Bronson/Zeus analogy too.
    i love listening to the old hip hop guys (like myself), matured, knowledge blessed, contemplating history. but unfortunately Lord Jamar mostly talks utter shit. i think he had a point, but for an intelligent guy, he couldnt articulate it. or maybe i just couldnt be arsed to listen to it properly

    I think the Shawn Lov reply is more right and exact: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3p1sUkqjXcc

    Lord Jamar remain strong. He has a right to not agree with a homosexual lifestyle. That does not make him homophobic. Mainstream society is fighting hard to convince black society to accept this lifestyle. And,the black churches have caved (keep the tithes rolling in.

    And no I do not believe that homosexuals should be assaulted or discriminated against.But, that lifestyle should not be promoted.

    • charlie says:

      most gay folk probably ok with just being accepted. ain’t nobody looking to promote anything but tolerance and acceptance.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
