N.O.R.E. caused a stir on social media when revealed on the RapRadar podcast that Michael Jordan hates rap. Since then, MJ’s camp have vehemently denied the veteran rapper's claim. However, N.O.R.E. has proof that MJ is not a fan of hip-hop.

On Friday (March 25), N.O.R.E. posted a photo on his Twitter account of His Airness at Def Jam's 2002 Christmas Party and from the look of it, Jordan doesn’t seem thrilled to be there. It was at the label's X-mas party where the NBA icon only spoke to Jay Z and refused to meet with the other rappers in attendance.

“I seen him shut Redman down at a Def Jam Christmas party,” the Queens native recalls. “We were all sitting there waiting to speak to Michael Jordan. N----s said, ‘Yo, Redman and Method Man is here.’ [MJ] said, ‘F--- rap.’ I seen the n---- say that.”

“That s--- hurt me. Def Jam Christmas party, Mariah Carey hosting and s--- like that,” he added. “He only spoke to Hov...that’s without a doubt.”

N.O.R.E. also shut down rumors that he has a vendetta against Michael Jordan. In another picture, the "Superthug" rapper is posing and wearing Air Jordan 8 "Aqua" sneakers. "And I still rock JORDANS I ain't never say boycott him!!! NEVER."

Meanwhile, N.O.R.E. just released his new mixtape, Drunk Uncle. The collection features cameos from hip-hop vets like Capone, Fat Joe, Royal Flush, Jadakiss, Kool G Rap, Nature and others. You can cop the mixtape right now via iTunes.
