''Hip Hop is not for people like Bruce Jenner''

The hip hop legend claims hip hop is a culture followed and represented by men and women who want to represent the culture. Not for 'fake' people.

Erick Sermon

Erick Sermon has warned all transgender rappers to not follow in Bruce Jenner's footsteps because the hip hop culture will never welcome that type of thing.

The rap legend was caught up in New York City on April 29 and asked, 'do you think someone like Bruce would ever be acceptable in hip hop?'

Sermon quickly responded, ''No''. Adding ''The way the world is going you never know. We have some rappers who are also close to that [mentioning no names] who are taking the culture way too far'

''Hip Hop culture is what it is, it's what it represents and what it stands for...Its a sport for men and women who want to represent the culture and not for some people who want to come and start faking it claiming they are rapping... hip hop and rapping are two different things''.

Sermon also mentioned the fact that the timing for Bruce's public announcement as a woman was wrong because he knew a long time ago that he wanted to be a woman... so why didn't he do it when he was a famous sports man? Why did he wait for so long?
