B-Real Weighs In On West Coast In Fighting. Agrees That Ice Cube Doesn't Owe The New West Anything

(AllHipHop News) Cypress Hill group member B-Real has weighed in growing division between older West coast rappers and a crop of new emcees from various parts of California.

Cypress Hill and Ice Cube were engaged in a feud on wax between 1995 and 1997.

While he didn’t call out names, Ice Cube took to his blog to address rumors that new talent from the West coast like Jay Rock, Glasses Malone, Crooked I and Bishop Lamont, felt the veterans were not supporting the new artists.

He’s gotta a point man, he don’t owe anybody nothing,” B-Real told AllHipHop.com. “That’s just the reality of it. He doesn’t own them nothing.

B-Real was referring to a controversial statement Ice Cube made in March on his official blog, while promoting his new album, I Am the West.

"I don't even remember ever meeting these clowns or even being in the same room with any of 'em. They can't make a name for themselves so they need help from the O/G's. I refuse the throw'em a life line. f**k'em. It ain't my job to make nobody famous," Ice Cube stated.

B-Real said the real culprit is radio on the West coast, in particular and that local radio stations were over saturated with artists from the South.

You got a few people doing some real cool s**t but then it all starts to sound generic,” B-Real told AllHipHop.com. “And then you can’t differentiate the good from the sh**ty. It starts to all sound the same. And I think that’s the problem that’s going on down there. But I can’t hate, do your thing.”

As for the West coast artists, B-Real agreed that it was important to continue to support the new batch of artists, even if local radio does not.

These guys ain’t getting no love from the radio, they ain’t getting love from nobody. But once and a while we gotta show these guys some love,” B-Real told AllHipHop.com. “These are the next generation of dudes so we have to support them.”

I gotta get at ICE-CUBE on this one...This man has more responsibility to "the game" then anybody I can think of...his lyrical content and delivery shaped west coast hip hop...dare I say it, he is the RAKIM of the west coast. Before NWA, most west coast mcee's sounded like really lame NY cats..( respect LOTTPACK, KING TEE, DIALATED, LIKS, HIRO...) so for him to act like this is disappointing to me...granted, you cant help everybody, but he should be more supportive of his fellow "WESSIYED" brethren. BK ALL DAY!!!

The main problem in all of this is RESPECT...Hip hop was allowed to grow artistically somewhat because corporate America looked upon it like it was a fad...as soon as they realized that it was a life style that would have white kids calling each other N****, they had to put it in a McDonald's commercial...this is when cats like DIDDY, JERMAINE DUPREE and BABY...cats that had NOOOO business picking up a MIC made it easy for any tom, d*** and WOCA FLOCKA FLAME to pick up a mic and make money with it. NOW...you have a so called "ARTIST" who doesn't respect the craft that puts food on the table, surrounded by older, established artist who don't feel a need to mentor the up and coming, SURROUNDED by a fan base who could care less, MANIPULATED by an industry that doesn't respect the very product they put there name behind. BK ALL DAY!!!

david wilson is dumb, Why would you make a stupid comment like that. South Central Cartel went plat, Richie Rich went plat I bet you don't even know these OG underground artist, Beat nuts was going gold, King Tee went gold in the 90's. Young Money is gold. N***** was selling way more records in the 80's and 90's, artist just had wack contracts. look at the numbers, hip hop been pop since MC Hammer, Vanilla Ice. Kids stop talking about things u don't know about.
