XXcLusive: Peedi Crakk Says Jay-Z Stole Young Chris’ Whisper Flow

Was Young Chris the victim of a serious theft by Jay-Z? Well, Peedi Crakk seems to think so. recently caught up with the State Property rapper, and in the interview he accused Jay of jacking the former Young Gunz MC’s flow.

Peedi recently spoke with Cosmic Kev on his hometown radio station Power 99, charging Jay with stealing songs, but when he spoke with XXL he wanted to clear up those statements. “I want to clarify that [Jay] doesn’t steal anyone’s songs,” he said, “he steals swag, ideas, concepts—whatever you want to call it… Jay doesn’t just straight-up jack you for a song. He’s just smooth with it. You ever listen to Young Chris rap and then go back and listen to Jay? You almost start to scratch your head. The old Jay-Z never rapped like that. That’s Young Gunners flow to the tee. There are actually people that don’t know that that [the whisper rap] was [Chris’] flow. I don’t understand why Jay don’t just say that he got the swag from the young bull.

“Jay has no swag of his own,” he continued. “He has no natural cool nigga style. But at the end of the day he has his own path to craft just like we all do and I’m all about making sure my path is full of positivity and creativity.”

Crakk was recently released from a Philadelphia prison after serving a little over a year on a parole violation. He is currently working on his first official album on Amalgam Digital, titled Peedi. —Elan Mancini with reporting by Kevin Clark
