So EUROPE can be proud of it ACCOMPLISHMENTS but BLACK PEOPLE can't?— Lord Jamar (@lordjamar) November 11, 2013
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.
