DMC Calls Lil Wayne And Jay Z’s Music Not “Hot”


Looks like Flavor Flav is not the only legend finding it hard to identify with current stance of hip-hop as DMC has also spoken up about the matter, calling the genre’s listeners “brainwashed”. According to, in a recent interview DMC expressed that not only he does he not understand the popularity behind both Jay Z and Lil Wayne but the rap veteran even dubbed their music not “hot”.

“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”. Much like Flavor Flav, DMC blamed the content for this demise, “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 ass America is celebrated”.

DMC’s comments come just days after Flavor Flav spoke out against the generation saying,“Lil Wayne is making some great rap records, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Ludacris, Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, Snoop [Lion] – everybody is making great rap records, but it’s not hip-hop.”
