Lord Jamar is calling out all the non-cipher skirt and blouse wearing antics of the fashion world’s favorite MC — Kanye West. Monday, while most of the net was still fixated on the Super Bowl triumph of Beysus and her sisters and the haterism of Keyshia Cole, Lord Jamar, known largely for his 90’s hip-hop glory as part of the group Brand Nubian and more recently for his forays into acting, dropped a song that send the hip-hop world spinning.
While we’ve been pointing out Ye’s love for womenswear for some time now — Lord Jamar dedicated an entire track to the dangers of embracing this style. Some are already calling him homophobic for the track.
Check out some lyrics and the actual song below.
Lyrics via AllHipHop:
“”Somebody mad at my hash tag/ Black man lookin’ half a f*g/With a blazer and vest, I’m just amazed at the mess/Pioneer of this queer sh*t is Kanye West/He introduced the skinny jeans to the rap scene/Then he wore a f***ing skirt on the video screen/Then he wore it again at a memorial/I can’t pretend that this s**t ain’t deplorable/I bet this n***a thinkin’ he lookingadorable/Your music’s good but your ego is horrible.”
Do you agree? There’s an added layer to this argument because Lord Jamar reps the “Nation of Gods and Earths” — a group of people whose lingo and beliefs are peppered throughout hip-hop. In the interest of “building” and spreading knowledge, Lord Jamar took to his Twitter page to explain his thought process. Hit the flip for his tweets.
Jamar also retweeted a few followers who understood his points, while taking time to discuss his thoughts with those who disagreed.

He does kinda have a point about the “keyboard killers” though.
MC/community activist Rhymefest also weighed in on the issue, but seemed to have a positive discourse with Jamar.
What do you make of all this? Do you agree with Lord Jamar? Is he really looking out for the interest of our kids — or is this just his attempt to make himself more relevant? To be fair, he says he’s a fan of Kanye West and doesn’t think Ye is gay — just that his skirt wearing is a bad example to the youth.
