Jay-Z Being A Hypocrite
Jay-z is hitting out at rappers who don’t keep it real via projecting a false image of street cred to their audience. Since when did you care about the black community. Let’s see, you sold drugs to it, sold lyrical poison to it, and robbed many black people of their wages, royalties and copyrights.
In my opinion, of all the black rappers that ever hit the spotlight, you are the one that has done the most damage to the black community and society as a whole, via your misogynistic lyrics that completely debase women, violent imagery in your raps that adds to the aggression of youths, and horribly materialistic stance, that teaches people that dirty, underhanded tactics and devious shortcuts is how you succeed in life. The Bible has a phrase for that “And great was the fall thereof.”
When have you ever kept it real. Keeping it real is doing things the honest way in life and judging by your lawsuits and bio, that’s something you’ve never done. So save that sob story you’re pushing this week for someone like you with no brain or morals. You are what you do, not so much what you say.
Besides, you’re not telling us anything new. What you said in this recent interview a few days ago, I already said well before in my song “You Talk Like A White Girl“:
You keep listening to rappers
Telling you what black is
When they’ve made millions and left the ghetto off the biz
They’re living in the suburbs that’s mostly white
But they’re sitting there telling you “be real” and “dynamite”
Jay-Z Questions Rappers Who ‘Keep It Street’
2008-07-25 11:56:00 – Hip-hop mogul Jay-Z hates hearing how his rap contemporaries “keep it hood”, because he’s convinced no one would voluntarily return to their poverty-stricken past in the streets.
He says, “I think it’s more important for me to be in touch with who I am than in touch with the streets, per se. Being in touch with the streets, keeping it real, that’s become a lie and a cliche.
“I’m not hanging on the corner in the Bed-Stuy. I hate it when rappers say, ‘I’m keeping it hood.’ I’m like, ‘Why? What do you mean? No one’s there by choice! You’re in the hood, by choice?!'”
