J-Kwon is back and he is going in on everybody!
Where has J-Kwon been? I’m not sure but what I do know is this:
Belleville, IL St. Louis rapper released a track called “Pushing the Odds.” In the song he takes shots at G.O.O.D. Music’s Pusha T as well as Odd Future’s Tyler the Creator.
Apparently the “Tipsy” rapper is tired of them “picking on [him].” The rapper has been as a punchline to many (say you didn’t make a joke) and is fed up with other artist mentioning him in bar or two of their tracks. I guess he is pissed.
How convienient of a song to come out after Kanye West mentioned J-Kwon in an interview with NY Times yesterday. West used “Tipsy” as an example of the sound he was using for his new album, Yeezus. Here is what he said:
This album is moments that I haven’t done before, like just my voice and drums. What people call a rant — but put it next to just a drumbeat, and it cuts to the level of, like, Run-D.M.C. or KRS-One. The last record I can remember — and I’m going to name records that you’ll think are cheesy — but like, J-Kwon, “Tipsy.” People would think that’s like a lower-quality, less intellectual form of hip-hop, but that’s always my No. 1
When Tyler the Creator heard the song, he posted his reactions on twitter even sending a link for fans to hear the song.
At least he got some publicity from it.
