Lord Jamar Blasts Idea That ’90s Hip Hop Lacked a Kanye

I like Vince but he be saying some ignorant shit… get ya knowledge up son….

With a debut album on Def Jam and while making headlines for his outlandish commentary, Lord Jamar seemed to miss out on the buzz surrounding freshman spitter Vince Staples. The Brand Nubian rapper tells DJ Vlad that he isn’t aware of the budding Long Beach native or his statement that the 90s are overrated because they didn’t have a Kanye. After getting a good laugh, Lord Jamar blamed people for making sales more important than quality or impact of culture within the genre. “Trying to put a critique and a standard on Hip-Hop that is more Euro-based than it is Afro-based.” He explained, “All these idiots are the first ones to always talk about how much they sold, and all of this dumb s***, as if all of that matters when it comes to the quality of Hip-Hop.”
