Rapper Scarface Praises Macklemore On Billboard ‘Best Rap Song’ Win



Billboard opted for an alternative listing for their “Best Rap” category. Some may call this an expansion of the genre, but others find this to be the degradation of the art form that was birthed in the Bronx.

The nominees in this year’s category didn’t include Hip Hop fixtures, such as Nas, Jay-Z or T.I. It did, however, include Flo-Rider, Macklemore, PSY and Kanye West.

There are actually five entries, but Flo-Rider was nominated twice.

Macklemore was announced the winner for his viral hit song “Thrift Store.”

Rapper Scarface, who has been vocal on his thoughts on the whitening of Hip Hop, took to Twitter to congratulate Macklemore.

“wow respect mack



“Macklemore – White Privlege I love this guy I swear they wanted me hung when I said it tho,” he wroe,



The “My Block” told Hard Knock TV he feels like black culture is “losing” Hip Hop.

Scarface said there is a conspiracy against the blacks in Hip Hop.

He then pinned the blame on white and Jewish record label owners.

“I feel like the people that’s in control of what Hip Hop does is so fucking white and so fucking Jewish until they don’t give a fuck about what the culture and craft really is about,” he said.

The “My Block” rapper said the present industry is brainwashing African-Americans to look “stupid” and “dumb.”

Despite Scarface’s praise of the Seattle-based emcee, many people took to Twitter to slam Billboard’s nominee list.
