After raising eyebrows by unleashing a direct shot at men’s current fashion and targeting Kanye West as a trendsetter over Instagram, Brand Nubian’s Lord Jamar has hit up SOHH to explain his comment.
Rather than apologize or remove his post, Jamar said he fully stood behind pointing the finger at Mr. West for inspiring questionable men’s fashion.
“First of all, it’s not just jabs at Kanye West,” Jamar explained. “It’s anybody promoting the feminization — of the Black man in hip-hop culture. Anybody that I see out there, rocking dresses and all of that type of sh*t, I might shoot a jab at. But Kanye is one of the ones right now that’s representing that movement. He’s one of the first ones that you see in a skirt. Now you got other people following suit and rocking full-out dresses or they’re trying to rock kilts. We’re not Irish. We’re not Europeans. Rocking kilts and all that is just another excuse to introduce that skirt style. You understand what I’m saying? And I’m not with it. This has nothing to do with sexuality, who they choose to be with and all that, I’m not even talking about that. I’m talking specifically about, what is hip-hop? And that’s not hip-hop. Rocking dresses with mean faces, that’s not hip-hop.”
Jamar hopped onto his Instagram page over the weekend to give his take on men’s skirts.
