Jay Electronica is not holding his tongue. The New Orleans MC’s diss-filled Periscope session leaked on YouTube Friday (Feb. 5) and it features a slew of shots aimed at some of today’s prominent rappers including 50 Cent and Kendrick Lamar.
“ was a good rapper,” said the Roc Nation signee. “Right now, he got the potential to be a rapper, but he’s on some sucka shit and we will slap his fu**ing eyeballs loose. We’ll slap 50 Cent’s fu**ing eyeballs loose out of his scalp.”
Elsewhere in the vid, Electronica called his “Control” collaborator Kendrick Lamar his “son” and said he doesn’t like most of the Top Dawg rapper’s music.
“I like the one Kendrick song with Gunplay called ‘Cartoon & Cereal,’” he said. “Other than that, we don’t know what that ni**a talkin’ ’bout.”
It wasn’t all negative. Electronica also defended K-Dot shortly after. “You can’t say, ‘f**k Kendrick,'” he explained, “That’s still our brother.”
Electronica addresses (and sometimes disses) other rappers during the 16-minute clip, as well, including Drake, J. Cole, and Lupe Fiasco. Watch the full Periscope session and see more quotes from the video below.
On Lupe Fiasco: “I f**k with Fiasco. I’m not saying he’s real like a street ni**a. I don’t think he’s a street ni**a but he’s a real lyricist.”
On J. Cole: “J. Cole is better than Jay Electronica? J. Cole will tell you that you’s a liar…J. Cole is family. That’s family. Stop trying to be divisive.”
On Kendrick: “Kendrick is my son. Kendrick is my baby. Kendrick wish that he could be me.”
On baby mama Erykah Badu: “Erykah Badu’s pussy is trash? Whoever said that, you must be white or you must be a gay, or a fa**ot, or a virgin. Whoever said that, I know you’re white because you’re disrespectful, but we’ll let you live tonight.”
On female MCs: “My favorite female MC? I got too many female MCs. From the old days is MC Lyte. From the new days is Lauryn Hill. My favorite female MC ever is Lauryn Hill.”
On Drake: “Drake is a Toronto ni**a. We f**k with Toronto. Drake grew up in a neighborhood with a Hebrew school and all that. He had a bar mitzvah and all that, but we f**k with Drake because he makes good music.”
On Wu-Tang Clan: “We love Wu-Tang Clan.”
