Is rapper YBN Almighty Jay too young for you, bro?
According to Complex, rapper YBN Almighty Jay, Black Chyna’s boo, told Peter Rosenberg he simply does not know who Method Man, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, RZA, Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck, U-God, GZA, Raekwon, or Cappadonna is. Jay admitted to Rosenberg when asked who he studies,
“I listen to generational music. If it’s in right now, that’s what I listen to. It might be weird and stuff, people be like, ‘You don’t know the history of rap and you’re a rapper,’ but like I don’t go back that far to listen to music.”
And if you didn’t fully believe him here’s the proof. Rosenberg asked whether they were Wu-Tang heads. Jay immediately shook his head, and said,
“[I] ain’t go back that far. No disrespect, I don’t know who that is.”
When asked to clarify, Jay said,
“I don’t even known Wu-Tang. I don’t know none of they songs. I don’t even know what they look like.”
The interviewer asked Jay to at least name one member and Jay could not. He jokingly says “Wu.”
