Does Jay-Z Steal Swag?
Rapper Peedi Crakk seems to think so...
Rapper Peedi Crakk has recently lashed out at Roc Nation C.E.O Jay-Z, claiming that he steals swag from other MCs, and in particular from a rapper by the name of Young Chris.
Peedi told XXL Mag: "I want to clarify that [Jay] doesn't steal anyone's songs. He steals swag, ideas, concepts, whatever you want to call it. Jay doesn't just straight-up jack you for a song. He's just smooth with it. You ever listen to Young Chris rap and then go back and listen to Jay? You almost start to scratch your head. The old Jay-Z never rapped like that. That's Young Gunners flow to the tee.
“There are actually people that don't know that that [the whisper rap] was [Chris'] flow. I don't understand why Jay don't just say that he got the swag from the young bull. Jay has no swag of his own. He has no natural cool n*gga style.
"But at the end of the day he has his own path to craft just like we all do and I'm all about making sure my path is full of positivity and creativity."
