Jay Electronica, from New Orleans but known to be from the Detroit area, recently called out Wu-Tang's long-time member RZA after the Wu-Tang member reportedly made some negative remarks about southern emcees. "Particularly, RZA, I love RZA and I love the Wu-Tang, but I remember RZA — he said some real ridiculous stupid, ignorant things about the South," Jay explained in an interview. "And he's from Ohio or something like that about New York from another place. I don't give a f*ck where you're from, whether you were born and raised in Brooklyn, where's your grandparents from? Where's your great grandparents from? He was saying something to the effect of like, they were talking about the down South music and I think Lil Jon was big at the time — he was talking about the lyricism and quality of music. He was saying, 'Yeah, we were doing this a long time ago,' but then when you start talking about the intelligence level, which is a very unwise thing to do and is very disrespectful, because you're running around saying all these things — this is the first time I'm ever saying this publicly too, peace on RZA he's a great brother [but] also, RZA, you said some crazy wild sh*t…I put it in a record called 'I Feel Good' which I did a long, long time ago."
