Audio: Kay Slay Responds to Jay Electronica

jay-electronica

So Kay Slay heard that segment of Jay Electronica’s interview with SpineTV where he speaks on RZA’s comments about Southern MCs and he took exception to Jay’s tone. And I can kind of understand that. When I first started this site it was right around the time that Jay-Z was still in retirement and Curtis was really the only NY dude making any kind of noise and the South was hands down winning the battle for rap supremacy. And within the rap universe there was just this general tone of hatred for anything even remotely connected to New York. And I understand why that was the case. New York artists, critics and fans had shit on the South, and other regions, for so long that it was almost inevitable that the hate would come back around. So me, I’m kinda like Slay in that I’m from New York and I don’t really take kindly to niggas talking shit about us regardless of whether that hatred was earned or not. And so I got extra defensive and I’d shit on Southern rappers that I saw as wack and I’d have these big long arguments in the comments with folks from the South and really in retrospect it was a big waste of time, but it served as an outlet for my frustration. All it really boils down to is regional pride and the desire to rep for what you identify with most strongly. And that’s really all this back and forth between Jay and Slay is about. The rest is just opinion. Nobody is right and nobody is wrong. But because these are two strong willed dudes, people seem anxious to see this turn into something more than it really is.

This first clip is of Jay responding to Slay’s response to his SpineTV interview.

    Eskay and his paragraphs. Reminds me of the old Nah.

  3. mcb Says:

    I really hope this doesnt become a big thing

    Anything>taking away from the music.

  4. A tribe called quest Says:

    Kay Slays is a nobody now tho

  5. Joe 88 Says:

    Maybe. But at the end of the day, its all influence.

    ^No doubt.

    Dr James A. Naismith invented basketball, I doubt he had a influence on Michael Jordan, or any athlete currently playing for that matter. NY might’ve had a large influence on JayE’s rap style, but that’s just the wrapping over top of the whole message, who’s to say he won’t dedicate a song to any southern legends?

    Just saying, him styling like a up north nigga doesn’t mean his will to rap is soley based around up niorth niggas.

  6. DW Says:

    This type of shit makes all these niggas look homo. no homo.

    I used to think Papoose was cool…until I heard him on Term’s “Watch How It Go Down” Remix. That shit was a trainwreck. Insane beat…Term killed it, MOP takes that shit to riot levels…and then Papoose destroyed it. In a bad way.

    —-

    Yo Paps best song ever was the 50 Cent sample called ‘Hustle Hard’ OMG that shit is FIIIIRRRREEEEEE.. If ya need that shit let me know!

  21. KzA Says:

    JE needs to stop wearing fur and other soft garments.. He needs something with more texture..more abrasive….. to aid in removing all that deceased epidermis

    Yo Eskay *daps*

    I know I fuck around talking shit about you from time to time about your two chins and living in your moms basement, but on the real… Sometimes you say some good shit (||) in your rants..

  24. Beezy Says:

    yoooo, so my friend who played college ball…and knows ALOT of NBA people just sent me this.

    Prob crazy, but figured I’d share:

    heard from several people lebron found out after game four that
    delonte was sleeping with his mom. lebron got mad at all his
    teamates for not telling them because some of them knew. i
    have gotten the info from a couple differnt sources. my boss
    said after lebron walks off the court he kissed some woman and
    then delonte kissed the same women. he thinks it was lebrons
    mom.

    also heard through one of verajons guys and danny ferry said that “something happened in the locker room that significantly altered team chemistry”

    IT IS ONLY A RUMOR but have been hearing from all over the place from big time guys.

    Beezy i laughed when i read this and then i thought about it. Shit would make a whole lotta of sense. if this is true then we should all applud lebron for not executing delonte west, altho that nigga crazy as shit and prolly keeps a grenade launcher in his locker lol!

  30. KzA Says:

    yo i dont watch any basketball whatsoever… so to become a bit more familiar with that story I googled Delonte…

    wow.

    definately one of the more facially challenged individuals ive seen in a while.. was he in the golden child before he joined the NBA?

  31. kedordu Says:

    aggressive content . lets not pretend like this isnt one of the major things we love about hiphop . the wwe aspect of it . and its not negative at all . if u think it is then u are a slow piece of hard pooo .

  32. Beezy Says:

    yeah I don’t know what to think…the dude who sent it to me is big time connected, but who knows

    its pretty outlandish…but Delonte is an outlandish ass dude

  33. Rey Says:

    I’d believe it. Why else would LeBron look so sad? Iono…

  34. sealsaa Says:

    Roffles at the prospect of somebody Young Berging JayE

  35. landlord Says:

    it definitely was LeBron’s mom that Lebron kissed… didnt see Delonte kiss her…

    WOW @ Delonte west piping Lebron’s mom..

    aint she have a drug problem recently?

    maybe thats who Delonte had all them guns for… he was gonna murck his new son-in-law…

    Lebron gonna be a Knick forreal…

    Cuz the Celtics ruined his year in Cleveland???
    He’s just getting used to it, Peyton Pout is quite standard.

  37. hl Says:

    its cool.. i dont wanna argue too tough over this, cause i respect niggas like hl and b-ease, and music, just like sports and other art forms, has regional followings and likes and dislikes…

    True…true…I’m sure everyone on here stans for someone that most others would agree is wack.

  38. Black Says:

    I’d believe it. Why else would LeBron look so sad? Iono…

    ^^^^^^^^^^^

    Game 5 it looked like somebody shot his dog…… or his son.

  39. Cashmere Cavalli aka Debonair Cavalier Says:

    i know delonte’s half brother thru some mutual friendsa and im tempted to ask

    but i know all kinds of ether would come my way if it’s false

  40. the-xfacta Says:

    Kay Slay is nothing more then a fat bully with drops that are louder then the tracks he’s playing.

  41. landlord Says:

    was it ever confirmed that Lebron was boning Amber Rose during AllStar weekend?.. that was a big rumor for a minute …

  42. b-ease Says:

    but i know all kinds of ether would come my way if it’s false

    ^^
    Just ask jokingly, like “yo, you wanna know the dumbest shit I read on the internet the other day? Some nigga said Delonte was piping Ms.James. Isnt that a riot?”

    Peep their facial expressions, that will tell you all you (we) need to know. Also, I wouldnt be mad if you did this asap, like, now.

  43. Black Says:

    maybe thats who Delonte had all them guns for… he was gonna murck his new son-in-law…

    Lebron gonna be a Knick forreal…

    ^^^^^^^^

    Delonte West is a certified psycho. Lebron dont want none.

  44. SuperCommenter BK Strong Says:

    lol Mayorga vs Thomas press confrence is funny. I didnt know Ricardo fought in the MMA

  45. landlord Says:

    still LMAO @ LeBron having to call Delonte West, “Daddy” …

  46. sealsaa Says:

    maybe thats who Delonte had all them guns for… he was gonna murck his new son-in-law…

    Lebron gonna be a Knick forreal…

    Well, yeah, but that was unnaturally “quitter”-like from King James. Compare that look on his face to the look he had in game 4 against Chicago. Dude had an evil, scary, determined look on his face. You’re telling me dude was THAT SHOOK OVER BOSTON that he completely reverted?

    I don’t think it was an injury, and I don’t think it was something sinister (evil russian owner, scumbag teammate), but I *do* think it was something more emotional on LBJ’s part, and in today’s world? Sheeit… No surprise at all to hear an NBA player is banging his teammates mom. It was bound to happen some day.

  48. hl Says:

    I don’t believe that story, but if its true I think everyone might owe Lebron an apology. No way a nigga could stay focused after getting that news.

    Same.

    Eskay doesn’t always get it right, but the longer posts are always thought provoking. More, please.

  52. vcsom Says:

    Eskay, file not found on the first stream there. fyi.

  53. khal Says:

    kay say sounds like he’s gonna cry

  54. Fyodor Drostoyevsky Says:

    Damn I laughed inside when he said Cory Gunz.

  55. Mac_Eleven Says:

    I see both sides. But mostly Jay Elects. NY cats takin his comment to heart cuz industry wise they been taking a L for awhile. But in the south cats can spit too…PS Jay Elects five artist would shit on all them cats Slay mentioned beside Kiss!

  56. Blacklion Says:

    how old is Kay??

    i mean a really…really?
    there was some emotion there….. someone needs to relax and get their sensitive vest Str8.
    seems like it boils down to some ole bow-down shit…..i can respect region reppin region shit but at some point..this shit is MUSIC …… MUSIC…. …WTF???
    dude over 40! should be able to decipher eloquently by now ….welcome back to the radar

  57. The Goodsounds Says:

    Fuck Kay Slay, dudes a washed up clown.

  58. spirit equality Says:

    kay slay automatically lost because jay gave out his phone number and address and invited kay slay to come address it directly with him as a man. instead of doing that, kay went to the radio. automatic complete and total L.

  59. tre Says:

    It’s hard to believe this is the same dude who was humbled when New York’s DJ Enuff played his joint on Hot 97. Kay Slay is right, why can’t he let it be?

  60. Suvio-Blue Says:

    i wouldnt call it an L, wouldnt even say the South was winnin, just more heard at the time…bottom line, they aint fuckin w NY no matter how u mold it…

  61. IN_SITE Says:

    sjit i understand bounce music and i dont think rza was talking about scareface 3 stacks goodimob etc and sjit when i first heard ying yang twins i thought they where slow yeah ……….. and right now gucciman an wacka and frenchi and shortylow i dont feel that sjit and they look slow to but i respected the hustle do but da music is kinda off wack

  62. Curt McGirt Says:

    New Yawkers are on some elitist shit especially when it comes to hip hop. Kay Slay sound like somebody stole his damn bike. I agree with Jay. NY niggas know they were talkin slick shit about the South prior to their notable success. Southern cats been called slow since whenever the fuck so the frustration is valid for any non New Yawker (I’m from the West (The Bay)). Kay’s defense is that he had various rappers that weren’t from the East rap for him and this and that and the third… OK? AND? I guess he forgot he works for a radio station that has a certain demographics in a media savvy part of town. Dont get me wrong, I fux with the lyrical raps from wherever but the East Coast bias is BS.

  63. NYHC81 Says:

    real quick question…im 28…im from NYC…who the fuck is Jay Electroncs? or whatever the fuck his name is

  64. mike Says:

    NY rap is awful

  65. Wakher Flocko COIS Says:

    Jay Electronica is entitled to his opinion, but at the end of the day when it is all said and done, he has blown up and caused an artistic buzz because he raps, thymes, writes, and talks like a NEW YAWKA. So he can say whatever he wants and vent about how the south used to get shitted on and all that, which is true. But his regional pride/bravado has been artistically compromised as his whole creative meta-narrative, sound, and swag is absolutely NYC–not down south. He didn’t make a name for himself sounding like master p or 3-6 mafia, etc.

    NYC is the mecca and fountain/cradle of the culture. And heads to need to understand that with this historical fact comes a sense of entitlement and privilege that may seem unfair at times. But it is just constructive criticism, albeit crass.

  66. Wakher Flocko COIS Says:

    and Jay…u sound like killah priest and nas put together….so dont say u dont rap “like nobody”… its not true.
