Nas Says Jesse Jackson’s ‘Time Is Up’

I knew Jesse Jackson pissed off a lot of people, but I didn’t see this one coming at all. It used to appear that Jesse Jackson was revered by many in the rap game, but it appears that in the eyes of some rappers, his time is up.

From MTV News:

“On Thursday (July 10), the rapper responded to Jackson’s videotaped whisper on Fox News, when the reverend said, “See, Barack’s been, um, talking down to black people on this faith-based … I want to cut his n—s off.” Nas says the civil-rights leader is finished.

“I think Jesse Jackson, he’s the biggest player hater,” Nas fumed during a conference call. “His time is up. All you old n—as, time is up. We heard your voice, we saw your marching, we heard your sermons. We don’t wanna hear that sh– no more. It’s a new day. It’s a new voice. I’m here now. We don’t need Jesse; I’m here. I got this. We got Barack, we got David Banners and Young Jeezys. We’re the voice now. It’s no more Jesse. Sorry. Goodbye. You ain’t helping nobody in the ‘hood. That’s the bottom line. Goodbye, Jesse. Bye!””
