RecentlyÂ Flavor FlavÂ about his dislike of the current list ofÂ hip-hop noteables, and nowÂ DMCÂ has added his thoughts as well. DMC says that Hip HopÂ listeners are â€œbrainwashedâ€.Â Â
In a recent interview with AllHipHop.com DMC expressed that not only does he not understand the popularity behind both Jay Z and Lil Wayne but the rap veteran even dubbed each as “Not Hot.â€
â€œIt 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 ainâ€™t hot, itâ€™s just theyâ€™re programmed so many times people are brainwashedâ€. Much like Flavor Flav, DMC blamed the content for this demise, â€œWhat 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 thatâ€™s negative in stupid ass America is celebratedâ€.
DMCâ€™s comments come just days after Flavor Flav spoke out against the generation saying,â€œLil Wayne is making some great rap records, Drake, Nicki Minaj, Ludacris, Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, Snoop [Lion] â€“ everybody is making great rap records, but itâ€™s not hip-hop.â€
