Lord Jamar’s view on race in hip-hop is that whites are guests in the industry. There are many rappers who disagree. Below is an interview with Royce da 5’9″ who also disagrees with Lord Jamar, believes every rapper should have a voice – no matter what message they have, they should be able to get their message across.
Here’s the original interview with Lord Jamar:
Now, VLADTV has definitely run with Lord Jamar’s statement and have interviewed multiple rappers asking about their stance, I found one person who agrees with the statement “white rappers are guests in the house of Hip-hop”, Ice-T. He does believe that non-blacks can be in the game, but they need to respect the original creators and remember that they didn’t create the culture.
