Jay Electronica vs. RZA

Jay Electronica, a N'awlin's-born rapper who signed to Roc Nation, may have come up on Wu-Tang, but he held a serious grudge over an interview RZA did during which he said something about the South not having the education to be lyrical. RZA stuck to his guns, later explaining that it's a timing thing — he noticed the lack of education with his parent's generation — and conceded that now with the Internet, the information playing field is more leveled. Both eventually made the same point: the difference in education really has to do with a difference in culture.
