Lord Jamar Laments Eminem's MTV EMAs Win

Lord Jamal laughs and shakes his head regarding Eminem's win at the European MTV EMAs.

Lord Jamar posted his take on MTV's EMAs on Twitter.

Jamar addressed certain aspects of the award show, which took place yesterday (November 10) in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. He also commented on Eminem winning the Hip Hop category at the MTV EMAs. 

The Brand Nubian rapper's tweets can be viewed below. 

The series of tweets follows Lord Jamar's recent comments rewarding White people in Hip Hop. 

“Okay, White rappers, you’re coming to this almost as a guest,” Lord Jamar said in an interview with vladtv.com recently. “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."

Following this, Jamar posted an update on Twitter saying that he had no issues with certain White rappers, including Eminem.

Nevertheless, Jamar feuded with Yelawolf over the comments. Yelawolf is a member of Eminem's Shady Records imprint.

Eminem won the “Global Icon” award for his lifetime achievement at the 2013 MTV EMA Music Awards yesterday (November 10), according to heavy.com. The Detroit rapper was also named the winner of Hip Hop category.

    Seems to me tables on this fuckin site turned. Why to the fuck dam near all non-whites comments on here get turn to racism? Ya'll think its alright to openly put out there fuck whites basiclly. Fuck whites in the game, fuck whites on promotion, fuck whites that buy the albums? How about this: FUCK ALL YA'LL RACISTS. Regardless of what color you are. Fucking back peddling with ya'll's struggle. Was'nt it a black thing 20 years ago, to kill stereotypes, and racism? Now here we are Black President and all. And you dumb ass's still fueling the hate. On real, What's wrong with whites in rap? Don't get insecure, we aint no better than anyone else. We all aint White Power Skinheads that's gonna kill your Genere. Were are all a product of our environments, and enjoy whatever music we choose, like anyone else. Unfortunately everyone struggles and not only blacks have hardships. So NOW more than ever, we can all relate to what Hip Hop is. And feel the truth in the message, because were there too, were in the ghetto too, were in these prisons too, were getting stereotyped, all that shit. But if your getting insecure, up your game! Don't play the race card. It's fuckin 2014 that shit's irrelevant. BTW,, I am White i do rap. How many times you think ive been stereotyped, by whites and blacks ALIKE? (Bigger Picture- If i die will God accept my white or black soul?) yeah bullshit right. So is Racism.. Kill this white black shit. AaronCaine - AKA A white Rapper.

    I applaud Jamar for having the courage to speak out. The white establishment in US entertainment are drawing their lines in the sand, especially MTV and the Grammy's. He posed a great question. Why in the world does MTV single out and air a special version for Europe only? Why not Asia? Africa? Those two continents have far more people. Also, the fact that NO black artists were featured or honored says a lot. What says more is that the white artists they did feature and honor are performing black music. How was Eminem even relevant for an award in 2013? Who in the hell is Iggy Azalea and why did she do a weak Nicki Minaj impersonation? Robin Thicke performed his Marvin Gaye stolen track. Bruno Mars did his fake James Brown schtick. It was all black inspired just with no black people.

    Lord Jamar is an icon of the golden years, but it seems he's jealous now. He has not stayed in the game, he's over. That's his problem. In fact he's sexist. He says hip hop is a Black Man's thing. He also said Hip Hop is for Alpha males. Not women, it seems.

    I'd like to hear ACTUAL relevant 90s rappers like Nas, Wu, Mobb or Onyx members state their unbiased opinions about rappers today, than this light skinned militant motherfucker, who nobody didnt even care about during his era, and who got butt ass nekkid on the OZ tv show, for a white man's signed check.

    Shitty Southern niggas ruined this "black culture" music more than anybody else. It started with that No Limit bullshit, then Cash Money, in the 90s, and sewage flood hasn't stopped since.

    I was attempting to post a real breakdown on the whole Lord Jamar is a racist vs Whites in Hip Hop Psycological Projection and received a message "Sumitting ERROR... you have temporarily been blocked" My post spoke on how this is an attack on Lord Jamar and those like him and how Eminem is the poster boy of a Career built on Racism and White Supemacy, thru the use of White Power in Corporate America. But I have been blocked from posting that.

    I just want all the people that don't know what MTV Europe Music Awards are all about to check this wiki link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2013_MTV_Europe_Music_Awards#Regional_nominations As some comments are exactly as ignorant as what Jamar said about Europe. Am I the only one who knows that they hand out awards to Africa, Asian, European people as well? Check the link, it speaks for itself. Proof of Jamars ignorance.

    Why dont black people see anything wrong with White Media (MTV, Grammys) awarding a white rapper, Best Hip-Hop artist.

    For fuck sake people, if you really listen to what Lord Jamar is trying to say about white rappers in hip hop culture then you wouldn't be so damn stupid to say that he's a racist. Basically he saying that white rappers can be involved in hip hop, but it doesn't mean that they own the music which is created by the hands of black people such as DJ Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaata and Grandmaster Flash. Also hip hop can be traced way back to the African culture for thousand of years, by the four essence of hip hop ( Breaking = dancing, Graffiti = hieroglyphics & African arts, Deejaying = djembe drumming from west Africa and other musical instruments and emceeing = griots telling stories, west African historcian, poet and musicians). So I don't really understand why blacks ( House negroes) will bash the brother like lord jamar to name him ignorant and racist, as if they're didn't study the history of hip hop. period

      its a free world bitch. lord jamar can talk all he wants but no one gotta listen. hip-hop has evolved

      Richnel Nzinga, They don't want to understand. Racism and WHITE SUPREMACY will not allow them to accept these facts. They will try to psycologically project their behaviors onto Lord Jamar... But it will not work.
    • JohnnyBlaze
      The music created by Kool DJ Herc, Grandmaster Flash, and Afrika Bambaata was more disrepected by all those corny Southern rappers and auto-tune MCs more so than frickin' Macklemore and Yelawolf.

    fuck this man. Brother Ali isn't even white. he's an albino black man. fuck this man is racist
    • truth
      Brother Ali is an Albino WHITE MAN. From Wiki: "While Brother Ali's family is white, he has often described a childhood marked by cruelty and exclusion by his white classmates as a result of his physical abnormality. He has often explained that, from an early age, he felt "most at home amongst African Americans."

    • iamwhite
      the comments on here are hilarious...."they are reverse racist, and white supremacists"...that fact you guys cannot even recognize your own arrogance is a colossal downfall that only plays into...more racism....get over it, white people can rap, we as the "black people" do not own a certain music genre, we need to stop flattering ourselves. What Jamar said(along with people like kayne west) just makes me laugh so hard because they are so far away from the truth they become delusional and anything that comes out of their mouth loses all credibility and just puts off a bitter racist vibe by themselves and makes us look so uneducated....smh at all these farcical comments...
