Wack 100 made some comments about the Nation of Islam earlier this week that Jay Electronica didn’t take a liking to. Now, their back-and-forth is heating up.
On Wednesday (May 4), Wack 100 took to Instagram with a message for the Roc Nation rapper after he told him to watch his mouth regarding the N.O.I. The music executive mocked Jay Electronica’s lack of “hits” while making it clear he isn’t looking to make amends.
“THE MAN OF NO HITS..EAT A [sliced cucumber emoji]. NOW PRESS DAT,” Wack wrote underneath a screenshot of the New Orleans rapper’s tweet.

Wack continued his response in another Instagram post, writing, “Your Nobody to ask I asked the man in front of me @brotherbenx and he answered the question. I’ve never known the N.O.I to duck a question. That’s what their there for to educate am I not right?
“You strike back with anger because a Black Man asked another Black Man a question to gain understanding !! Your fresh out of Ramadan with this behavior with this attitude !! Poor representation of what this movement stands for.”
The spat started when Wack 100 called out the Nation of Islam over the 1995 Million Man March. An estimated 837,000 people, mostly African-American men, came together in Washington, D.C. to spread awareness of the economic and social issues affecting the Black community, but Wack openly wondered what happened to the money raised at the march.
“I’ve always scratched my head about that Million Man March,” he said during a recent Clubhouse call with Nation of Islam member and entrepreneur Brother Ben X. “I’ve never seen nothing come up. I question that. You know me, I’m a call a spade a spade. Where that money went?”
He added, “That was orchestrated by the Nation of Islam. The money was administered by the Nation of Islam. It was supposed to be this, this, and that. I thought I was going to see some schools or maybe some type of funding for child resources. The Million Man March came, a bunch of people raised a bunch of money, and then… We didn’t hear nothing.”
Jay Electronica heard the comments and fired a round of insults at Wack for what he deemed disrespectful to the Nation of Islam.
“@wack100. If you got any questions ask me with yo coon ass,” he wrote. “You out here pressing everybody but the open enemy. Don’t be out here stunting on our lil brother. Press ME about The Nation Of Islam. I got that fire you looking for.”
The “Exhibit C” MC also posted a screenshot of his tweet on Instagram with the caption, “KEEP MY NATION’s NAME OUT YOUR FUCKING MOUTH @wack100.”
