Jay Electronica vs DJ Kay Slay

Before you really categorize this is beef listen to both sides of the story.  I think both sides have very valid points.  Jay Electronica also touches on how NYC is kind of whack now, a point I kind of made yesterday.  Kay Slay comes back with some valid points as well.  You gotta respect Slay’s G until he starts naming Serious Jones & Papoose as “problems” in NYC.  That mentality is also detrimantal to the game.  At the end of the day I’m happy both of these guys stood up for what they believe in.  I think it makes for an exciting dialogue in hip-hop.


Update: Check the tweet Jay just let loose below the audio.

  1. NYC is a tough city, even for people from NYC. NYC doesn't owe anyone an open door. You have to fight for yours. That is how it is for everyone. Jay sounds like he isn't getting love when all I hear about is how people love him. Be happy you get love and stop complaining about how hard it was to get that love. No one owes you anything.

    As for those rappers he mentioned- can they really go toe to toe with KRS, Freddie Foxxx, Q Tip, Chuck D, R.A. the Rugged Man, De La Soul, J Live, M.O.P?

    Slay should have mentioned some better emcees himself, Papoose? That dude is wack. To me at least. But whatever, everyone has their favorites.
