When New York niggas was calling southern rappers lame
But then jacking our slang
In the mid to late 1990s, around the time that Master P first broke out, Southern emcees were seen as “lame” by emcees from New York and other parts of the country, and were disrespected as having dumb lyrics and simple rhyme patterns.
As for “jacking our slang”, many emcees still called Southern emcees lame while copying slang terms like “bling” and more.
Jay spoke more about this in a few interviews leading to a brief war of words with New York’s DJ Kay Slay.
