Chuck D has blasted Jay-Z and Kanye West.
The veteran Public Enemy rapper has recorded a track, 'Catch the Thrown', as a response to the hip-hop stars' collaborative single 'Watch the Throne', which questions what the pair stand for and represent.
He said: "Hip-hop celebrates those that want to make a killing, instead of those that can make a living.
"I like those guys, but they make me laugh sometimes because I don't get who they're here for, other than themselves."
Chuck also sees himself and Public Enemy's other main rapper, Flavor Flav, as The Rolling Stones of hip-hop, because they have been rapping so long and still continue to record and tour.
He added: "I already see us as The Rolling Stones of rap. I'm 52 and Flav's 53, that's 105 years coming at ya."
Chuck has no plans to retire anytime soon, and would love to continue like an old blue musician, saying: "I would like to [still be going in another 25 years]. B.B. King's still doing it at 87."
Jay-Z and Beyonce Knowles have topped Forbes magazine's World's Highest Paid Celebrity Couples list 2012.
The power pair are estimated to have made $78 million together in the financial year ending May 1, moving them from second place in last year's list, behind Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen, to first.
According to Forbes, Beyonce earned more in the last year than her husband, amassing $40 million from sponsorship deals, sales of her '4' album and royalties from her back catalogue. The figure is particularly impressive as she also took time off to have the couple's first baby, daughter Blue Ivy, who was born in January.
The rapper made an estimated $38 million from his 'Watch the Throne' album and tour with Kanye West, continuing sales of his 'Decoded' book as well as his many business interests, which include a nightclub and Roc Nation record label, management and music publishing company.
Relegated to second on the list were supermodel Gisele and NFL player Tom, who brought in an estimated $72 million, from her lucrative modeling deals and his four-year, $72 million contract extension with the New England Patriots. He has also made a foray into modeling, signing contracts with Under Armour and UGG Boots.
Third on the list were fashion designer Victoria and soccer player David Beckham who are worth $54 million.
In fourth place are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who banked an estimated $45 million, and fifth were Will and Jada Pinkett Smith who raked in an estimated $40 million.

MC Hammer recently released a video called Better Run Run, in reaction to Jay-Z’s mention of him on the track So Appalled. On Wednesday, Jay-Z responded to MC Hammer’s music video in an interview with BBC Radio 1’s DJ Semtex.
The Hip-Hop mogul was asked if MC Hammer took So Appalled the wrong way. Jay states in the interview, “I didn’t know that wasn’t on the table for discussion.” The Decoded author discusses how he was not a forerunner in bringing up MC Hammer’s past financial issues. “I didn’t think I was the first person to say that.”
Jay-Z goes further on how his words are usually misconstrued and taken out of the context of “rap”. He reveals, “It is what it is. He took it the wrong way…I didn’t know I said anything wrong”.
Hammer released a video for his diss track on November 1 after taunting Jay for about a month and referring to the New York rapper as “hellboy.” In the clip a devilish creature can be seen chasing a Jay-Z look alike through the woods. Hammer intercedes and stops the creature in its tracks and then in the last scene reasons with his nemesis, baptizing him in a lake.

Beyonce Knowles and her low key husband Jay-Z on a romantic holiday in Portoferraio, Italy on August 22, 2010. I don't know why but I love these two being together. Many people probably thought Jay wasn't down for one woman, but B is about 10 in one.
