CHUCK D HAS A PROBLEM WITH JAY-Z AND DIDDY’S MONEY!April 11, 2018
“As a structured organization, I wish the money was distributed to more people better. To see JAY-Z and Puffy have a playful argument about who’s going to be the top of Forbes, I look at my peer group and they’re just trying to get by. Look at a guy like Masta Ace who’s just trying to continue his art and feed his family, I just wish the distribution is a little less painful. It could be a lot more fair across the board. It’s the lack of administration. I was talking to [DJ] Premier, I said, ‘I do so much of this and it’s not based on money.’ Yeah, I go out with Prophets Of Rage and our job is do our thing but everything else I do is painfully for free. JAY-Z and Puffy arguing about who has most money — something’s wrong with that. How many jobs have you created? Who are you paying and what are you doing for it? It all came out from the sacrifices we made for you.”
Jay-Z came in first on “Forbes’ 2018 List Of Hip Hop’s Wealthiest Artists” with his $900 million, and Diddy came in second with his $825 million.
Do you think Chuck D has a point? Should the generation that paved the way for the current generation of hip-hop be given more credit and money?
