Does Michael Jordan Really Hate Rap?

1312 ratings | 67081 views
Does Michael Jordan really hate rap as N.O.R.E. suggested during a Rap Radar podcast in March? MJ—or at least, a publicist speaking on behalf of MJ—said no shortly after N.O.R.E. made his claim. N.O.R.E. responded by reiterating his original point about MJ hating rap, though, and by pointing out that MJ did, in fact, attend a Def Jam Christmas party once despite his publicist saying that he hadn't been there—the same party where, N.O.R.E. says, MJ said, “F*ck rap," after Redman and Method Man asked for a few seconds of his time. Chamillionaire would also probably have something to say about MJ's true feelings towards rappers.

Maybe he does,maybe he don't. Every high profile athlete,movie star,musician...ect has their haters even MJ. So as soon as someone says something that the haters can grab on to and use as ammo, they will!! Don't matter if it's true or not,haters gotta hate.MJ is a billionaire and the most loved athlete in history...you REALLY think he gives two fucks what these fools think!!

The mainstream rap shit on the radio sucks. Hip-Hop is great but this rap shit has become trash.
songoku (1 year ago)
You ppl are dumb he probably just hates the general type of niggas in rap. You gotta be a real professional type of person to be on MJs level. And most average rap niggas to him probably dont meet the bar

Dude got beef with black people in general
Christy Dolan (1 year ago)
So what if he hates or likes rap. Is Jordan a god or something? He is hardly going to say anything that will alienate people who buys his crap shoes and clothes, and, if he did alienate them, there are plenty of others out their silly enough to buy his gear. Anyone notice that the golfers are now wearing his shoes? They look weird with the clothes that they wear

Okay not that I care but this is bullshit. I'm not convinced. why, because why is, whomever this, back turned in every scene. How are we supposed to know if that's Michael Jordan?? That can be someone with his type of body frame. We don't know. Also who's the broad responding for him, his publicist. Sorry Pookie your display doesn't count. Michael needs to speak for himself at this point. Besides that let's call a Spade a Spade okay. Michael is self-absorbed. He could give a shit about ANY & EVERYTHING that doesn't have to do with sales. Now THAT'S FACT.

Shaquille Wheeler (1 year ago)
Bruh who cares. Cause he black he automatically has to like rap? Dudes just got hate in their heart nowadays. Maybe he hasn't been introduced to some decent music. Cause if I thought all rap sounded like Migos or Riff Raff or some shi I'd probably hate rap too.

MJ impacted hiphop culture but not vice versa, he has his own preferences in music which is fine.

Who cares if MJ does or doesn't like rap. Everyone has their own musical preference. Russell Westbrook loves Taylor Swift are we gonna call Russ a bitch for listening to typical white teeny bopper music?

aceman42 (1 year ago)
MJ hates rap music. didnt allow in his house or the locker room to play rap/gangsta rap. i think it was dennis rodman interview from years before. thats how it circulated. bulls players before tried to play hiphop before games at their locker room and MJ just asked everybody to shut it down.
Shanna Howard (1 year ago)

ErlendNJ Fortnite (1 year ago)
They just trying to cover shit up cause they don't wanna lose buyers since they know that 90% of hip hop culture is into Jordans
ErlendNJ Fortnite (1 year ago)
+Your Mother 90% of hip hop culture doesn't give a shit, but they don't know that. Your stupidity keeps amazing me.
Your Mother (1 year ago)
90% of Hip Hop culture is quite faggy then if they're so insulted a man doesn't like their type of music.

Evan Martin (1 year ago)
Obviously he hates rap. Method Man & Redman are Incredible MC's & he dissed them. Just because he has some kind of deal with Drake & Nelly doesn't mean he likes they're music or other rappers music. That's just business. So obviously he's not gonna turn down big money. And as far as him dancing at the club, that music didn't even sound like rap. Sounded more like some club/dance bullshit with autotune.

Y'all saw what Kamillionaire said about MJ? Michael Jordan definitely has something against rap.

Secondhand Sampler (1 year ago)
Uh, apparently MJ was born in 1963, not 1993 or 2003. Which is to say, there's no reason why a man of his era should be compelled to be a fan of the last 15 years of popular rap music anymore than he should be compelled to love any musical genre from ANY era. Let a man live, people. Scrutinize his basketball legacy all you want. But his private life? (yawn) Mahfuckus have better shit to worry about than another man's opinion on music.
Your Mother (1 year ago)
Probably that it's music for the low-IQ individual.

Maybe not much rap but maybe black.... No, no, never mind... Some one who depends on a particular culture segment wouldn't diss like that! It's not like he's taking advantage of us... Wait... Hold on... DAME IT MJ!!! Or dame me since I have a few pair or J's myself... DAME IT!!! I'm just going to blame Nike instead... Yeah, it's Nike's fault... DAME IT NIKE!!!

He wouldn't be the first person over 50 that doesn't like rap, you can be a black icon that don't like hiphop. Musical tastes change as people get older, a lot of people that used to listen to rap hard in the 90's and 2000's don't even bother with it no more.

SneakerTifosi (1 year ago)
I believe N.O.R.E. If you meet Michael at first your star struck but if have any kind of conversation with him the "real" Michael comes out. I experienced it once at his flight camp when he was signing autographs for us. He really only does stuff cause he gets paid but not cause he truly wants his fans to like him or anything. I get that it's however it's just a little sad.
