DMC Thinks People Only Like Jay Z Because of Radio Brainwashing
 

 
image

Back in Hip Hop's infancy, DMC of Run-DMC proclaimed himself "The King of Rock" and lived up to the title. Some may consider Jay Z the King of rap now, but the two legends don't seem to be on the same page.

In a recent interview, DMC expressed the belief that Jay Z's popularity comes mostly from the brainwashing techniques of contemporary radio stations. Since they play Jay-Z and other rappers over and over, DMC feels there is nothing special about Hov's songs.

"It was inevitable that hip-hop became commercialized but along the way our power got taken away. Now you got the same 12 records on radio being played over and over again. Lil Wayne, Jay Z ain't hot, it's just they're programmed so many times people are brainwashed. What made us, KRS, Tribe Called Quest, and De La Soul great was that we wanted to change the world, taking responsibility for our actions. Now everything that's negative in stupid a.ss America is celebrated."

I get why he's saying it BUT, you can't change the world if people don't wanna change with you.

Look at Nas for example, in 2003 he tried to push I Can as a single, which was very uplifting, a song squarely directed to kids & young people yet people went on with their daily lives, doing the same ol sh*t.

In the 80's & early 90's when you had Kool Moe Dee, KRS-One, Queen Latifah all trying to be on that empower the black youth movement because there was hope. You think there's hope now with the technologic boom & a much easier way to get illegal money? Then to add to it you have older kids being direct negative influences, smoking weed, bringing in multiple kids in the world. Try and kick that taking responsibility sh*t in Chicago and see how far that gets you.

The days of rappers being positive role models died a long time ago, parents gotta step up to the plate.

I somewhat understand why old rappers feel this way. Hip-Hop was way different back then then it is now.

People did it because they loved to and they rapped about life and struggle.

Everything on radio nowadays is " I got money, I got money, I got money, I'll shoot you and phuck your girl, I got money "

how many tracks of WTT played on the radio other then ball so hard?? yet people think its a dope album, i think reasonable doubt and blueprint (lyrically and music wise) made people like jay and volume 2 (commercially) made people respect hthe numbers he does

plus that hard knock life tour is easily one of the best tours beside the sh*t diddy did because jay brought alot of acts, big acts on the road

He aint lying though

Jay can put subpar wack a.ss music such as MCHG and certain media groups d!ck ride the material, push it down ur throat,

when even his own fanbase (non d!ck riding types) are saying its trash

Its the same with Lil Wayne

Jay is good in a hip hop filled with Ross, bob, Trinidad James, French Montana, Meek Mill, Chief Keef, etc. Jay has aged well. Jay is truly great but no where near as he would like to pretend.

MGHC does not deserve the attention it's getting.

DMC isn't lying though and I liked Magna Carter Holly Grail.

But Jay could have down better and watered down his music so he could push it to the masses.

jay records are not even played on the radio heavily tho

other than n*ggas in paris I dont see how you could be radio brainwashed

jay has a loyal fan base thats why he sells records it has nothing to do with radio

He may be right about hip hop music not being as positive as it was in the 80's but the brainwash

People dont listen to the radio nowadays as much anyway

all these pioneers coming at hov head
