Both Chamillionaire and N.O.R.E. have alleged Michael Jordan doesn't like Hip Hop or rappers.
"I ain't taking pictures with no nigga," Chamillionaire said MJ told him in 2009 when he tried to get a photo with the legend.
N.O.R.E. gave this detailed account of the Hall Of Famer's aversion to the rap game.
“I seen him shut Redman down at a Def Jam Christmas party,” N.O.R.E explained. “We were all sitting there waiting to speak to Michael Jordan. Niggas said, ‘Yo, Redman and Method Man is here.’ [MJ] said, ‘Fuck rap.’ I seen the nigga say that…Quote me. I believe it was Redman and Method Man, and I’m to the side, so I can directly hear his voice. He was like, ‘Fuck rap.’ That shit hurt me. Def Jam Christmas party, Mariah Carey hosting and shit like that. He only spoke to Hov, but he spoke to Hov. That’s without a doubt.”
Maybe MJ's views on rap have evolved over the years, or maybe he respects 2 Chainz as a former college basketball player. Whatever it is, the GOAT was more than happy to take a photo with Tity Boi this weekend.
Do you think MJ was (or is) the rap hater everyone makes him out to be?
