[Video] Ice T Defends Lord Jamar & Hip Hop As Black Music

“Lord Jamar is my friend,” Ice T said. “I mean, Lord Jamar was one of the first people in the art of rap. You know? Lord Jamar is a member of the Brand Nubian. So, Lord Jamar is gonna have always a pro-black way of going at things. Hip Hop is black music. It’s not like if I was white I could say ‘I invented reggae.’ We gotta keep it real. Where did it come from? It came from black, ghetto kids. I think probably the second people into Hip Hop would be the Puerto Ricans. B-boys. Rock Steady Crew, people like that. When it hit L.A.—It’s a ghetto music, the eses got a hold of it.”
