B-Real of Cypress Hill Talks About The Beef Between West Coast Rappers
B-Real of the legendary Hip-Hop group Cypress Hill weighs in on beef between younger and older MCs on the West Coast.
Back in the mid-nineties, Cypress Hill had a feud with Hip-Hop icon Ice Cube but, as we all know, the two squashed that beef long ago.
Cube jumped on his blog to address the rumors of the younger generation of rappers coming out of the west coast feeling like the older veterans aren’t supportive of the new talent emerging out of 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.
Some younger west coast rappers are Crooked I, Jay Rock, Glasses Malone and Bishop Lamont.
“He’s gotta a point man, he don’t owe anybody nothing, That’s just the reality of it. He doesn’t own them nothing,” says B-Real.
B-Real blames radio stations on the west coast for not allowing the ‘youngins’ to make a way for themselves.
“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 canâ€™t differentiate the good from the sh**ty. It starts to all sound the same. And I think thatâ€™s the problem thatâ€™s going on down there. But I canâ€™t hate, do your thing.”
Though B-Real agreed with Ice Cube about not owing them anything, he does not agree that the OGs shouldn’t maintain a relationship with the younger artists.
