DMC Criticizes Jay-Z And Lil Wayne, Says Listeners Are “Brainwashed”


Legendary Hip Hop artist Darryl McDaniels, more commonly known as DMC of the pioneering group Run-DMC, says “Jay-Z ain’t hot.”

As reported by AllHipHopDMC, a founding member of the Queens based Hip Hop group Run-DMC, added onto recent criticisms of some of Hip Hop’s biggest stars in saying, “Lil Wayne [and] Jay-Z ain’t hot, it’s just they’re programmed so many times people are brainwashed.”

Throughout the 1980s, Run-DMC provided some of Hip Hop’s earliest commercial successes. In his recent statement, DMC also noted that Hip Hop has undergone a stark shift from its early epoch as a youth culture. “It was inevitable that Hip Hop became commercialized but along the way our power got taken away,” he says in the AllHipHop.com story. “Now you got the same 12 records on radio being played over and over again.”

In contrast to the type of contemporary Hip Hop he is critical of, DMC also ended up recalling the social impact that early Hip Hop acts like KRS One, A Tribe Called Quest and De La Soul had. “We wanted to change the world, taking responsibility for our actions,” he said. “Now everything that’s negative in stupid ass America is celebrated.”

DMC’s comments are only the latest in a recent string of criticisms leveraged towards the former CEO of Def Jam. As reported early last month, Killer Mike condemned the rollout of Jay’s Magna Carta Holy Grail album due to privacy concerns over the early release’s accompanying Samsung application.
