Jacki-O

Jacki-OMiami rapper Jacki-O recently conducted an interview with XXLMag.com, in support of her new street album Griselda Blanco.

In the feature, she called out Miami DJs for the lack of support for local acts, specifically DJ Khaled, claiming he doesn’t know the first thing about the city. In fact, she says he doesn’t even says the ‘hoods right.

Here’s a short snippet:

XXLMag.com: Recently, you’ve had some negative things to say about the support of local artists from DJs in your own hometown—specifically DJ Khaled. Care to elaborate on that?

Jacki-O: I have issues when it comes to DJs that take up space in my city that… you have a job playing records on the airwaves, and yet you playing the same artists over and over and over again? I have no beef with the artists that he’s playing, and with all due respect to them and their craft, I would love for them to get airplay, but what about the [other] people that’s in the city? If you reppin’ this city, then rep the city! Don’t hold beefs or grudges with people just because you’re friends with my ex-label-mates… that’s crazy! If you hear a record that’s poppin’ in the streets and it’s poppin’ in the clubs—play it on the station! I have a problem when the DJ feel like he more powerful than the artist and I think that’s the stance that he takes when it come to this music and it’s just ridiculous, so I do have a problem with him. It’s not just me, but a lot of people do. Maybe they think it and don’t say it but I choose to say it because I feel like it’s an injustice and it’s not right and it’s not fair, so I’m callin’ [Khaled] out on it… On air, he not even sayin’ the hoods right, he saying the hoods wrong! His syllables is wrong when he shoutin’ out the cities, and the hoods… it’s crazy [you can tell that] he not from Miami… We accepted you in our city and you were chosen to rep our city and then you get in office and you flip the script, that’s crazy!

Later in the interview, Jacki-O addresses certain rumors, the current state of females in hip-hop, her thoughts in Nicki Minja, past beefs and more.
