The LOX – Blame Lyor Cohen For Ruining Hip Hop

The LOX Blame Lyor Cohen for the current state of Hip Hop.

DJ Whoo Kid sits down with The LOX on Shade 45 for this latest interview.  The interview went through the beef years and situations that could’ve turned violent, and they said today’s beefs are different than their beefs.  This is due to the fact that they believe beefs now are media driven.  When asked about Young M.A covering “Money, Power, Respect” no one heard her version except Styles, who heavily cosigned the record saying she did it justice.

Then the interview took a turn at the end, where it seemed as if something was eating away at Jada the whole interview.  He completely snapped and didn’t hold back, he said “Lyor Cohen is the reason for hip hop turning out the way it has, with him [Lyor] controlling all these younger artists and their 720 deals.”  He continued by stating, “You don’t need to learn your history anymore, all you need is green dreads/a Rolex and you’re good.”  The group believes the industry will shift and cater more to single deals to have more turnaround time in going through artists.  They closed out by saying, “Those Instagram pics with money being held to your ear like a phone, be careful because you only own $20 of that, it’s like a collect call.  Also, be careful they don’t 360 your single deal and 360 your allowance you receive from your parents.”
