Jay Electronica Speaks On Past Beef With Wu Tang Clan's RZA, DJ Kay Slay Responds. Jay Also Announces He Will Be Touring With G-Unit [2 Videos]

Videos After The Jump

New Orleans rapper Jay Electronica has started to build a nice buzz for himself. He started to get a lot of national recognition in 2009 when he released the Just Blaze produced banger "Exhibit C." Since then he's continued to dispel the myth that rappers from the South can't be lyricists.

To that end he recently caused a bit of a stir when he revealed that he once had beef with the Wu Tang Clan's Rza over remarks he made disparaging southern hip hop.

"I remember Rza said some ridiculously stupid things about the south," Jay said.

Peace on RZA, that’s my brother,” he continued. “RZA had a great effect on me via the Wu Tang Clan and the music he did, I wouldn’t be who I am today if it wasn’t for the RZA and the Wu. But also RZA you said some crazy wild s***, and if you would have seen me at that time we might have had a physical altercation.”

"So I put in in a record called 'I Feel Good' that I did a long, long time ago. But peace to Rza, he's a beautiful black man. He's done a lot for our culture, a lot for our people and a lot for humanity in general."

Jay's interview caught the attention of The Drama King DJ Kay Slay who took to his Twitter to speak his mind on the matter.

"This jay electronica dude gettin real disrespectful towards New York n***as these days.. if he hates us so f*kin much why does he rap like us?"

"His f*kin interview just made my blood boil."

Jay responded via an interview on Shade 45's Angela Yee Show.

"Hold on Mr Kay Slay. I'm not rhyming like nobody, we all got our influences. And no disrespect, I love Kay Slay, I been f***in with Kay Slay since Style Wars," Jay said. "I f***s with Kay Slay, I made it known that I f**** with New York. But I'm not 19 years old, I'm not 15 out here sucking d*** and kissing a**, Imma say how I feel."

When I say New York n***as was dissing us and talking crazy s**t about us; I’m not being hypothetical, I’m talking about what I experienced…I was real clear in the interview I have super respect for RZA. If it wasn’t for Wu, Nas, BIG, Jeru, Primo, by the way Primo’s from Texas, if it wasn’t for all these people I wouldn’t be the person I am today.”

Kay Slay responded on his Hot 97 show.

What happened in the past happened and the South is eating now and you got on. Why you keep bringing up old foolishness and keep throwing New York up?” Slay said. “I’m taking offense because when Ludacris came around before his first album dropped, he came to my crib to freestyle. T.I. when he first came out came to my crib to freestyle; he asked me to bring him on BET his first time around. Eightball’s first time when he came to New York, I took him through Harlem. You’re using these people like no one in New York supported the South and everybody was dogging them [and] that never was the case.”

Cooler heads have since prevailed.

Kay Slay feels like he has always shown the south love and doesn't want this situation to get out of hand. He tweeted this morning. "Dear bloggers! Me an Jay elec are grown men an we had our opinions about issues an thts that..No violence just opinions!yall can relax now!"

Now that's good look, no beef, just two grown men expressing their opinions

Meanwhile in more positive Jay Electronica news. He recently told Vibe that he will be touring with 50 Cent and G-Unit on their U.S. run.

"I'm touring with G-Unit at the end of the month. I think 50's gonna be down but right now I don't even know the dates. Aside from that, I’m working on the next phase of my music. I want to tour and travel the world. I’m definitely at some point going to make a point to go all over the continent especially after the experience I had shooting "Exhibit C" in Nepal."
