    Le1f Calls Out "Conservative" Rapper Lord Jamar For Using Homophobia As PR

    "I know oppressions you will never understand," rapper Le1f tells Jamar, the self-described defender of "conservative" hip-hop values.

    Earlier in March, Lord Jamar claimed that rapper Le1f's televised performance on Letterman was the "beginning" of a negative cultural shift:

    THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING! "@AList_AL: Yo @lordjamar is bout to have a field day with this one, lol http://t.co/MpmUMrcto6"

    dear Lord Jamar,Choose your battles. If the whitening of rap is a concern to you, please leave my name out of it. If you think being gay is the same as being white, you are as ignorant as your enemies. I'm darker than you. I'm african. I'm a black man and I experience all the same racism you do, if not more, on top of homophobia, including from black men just like you. Are you proud of being a hateful member of a majority? Rap started out as a creative response to oppression, and no matter my outfit, I know oppressions you will never understand.All respect,Le1f

    On Twitter, he continued:

    think before you speak, ignorant people. i look more like Dennis Rodman than any gay man you've ever seen. YOU are a stereotype. not me!
