The Freshman had a few words to say about a certain alum when speaking to XXL…
XXLMag.com: Let’s cut right to the chase; is there any beef on your end with Cube?
Jay Rock: There’s no hard feelings or beef between me and Ice Cube. I just take it personal when somebody says fuck us [the new West]. I’ve worked extra hard to get to where I am and I’ve done it with no co-sign from no one and I’m not looking for a co-sign from Cube or any other rapper. Like I said [on Twitter] all I need is my mic, my fans, my hood and this big ass gun on my side and I’m good to go.
XXLMag.com: But still, it sounded like you were calling him out?
Jay Rock: Yeah, I was calling him out. I wanted him to say who he was talking about instead of making it look like he could’ve been talking about all of us new rappers. It’s a lot of people that’s hot about what he said but I guess I was the only nigga that felt the need to speak out about it. Where I’m from in the NG’s [Nickerson Gardens housing projects] we don’t bite our tongue. We was taught by our O.G.’s to call a nigga out on whatever.
