Lil Yachty Responds To Anderson .Paak’s Subtweet About Him Not Knowing Biggie & 2Pac Songs

Wait, did a XXL Freshman call out one of his other class members? It looks like it.

Lil Yachty caught the wrath of damn near every 90’s Hip Hop fan when he said that he could not name 5 songs by Biggie and 2Pac.

Fellow 2016 Freshman Anderson. Paak sent out a tweet that seemed to be directed at Yachty’s lack of musical knowledge about two of the greatest emcees of all time.

“Don’t be cocky in the fact that you don’t know anything about hip hop history. Real artists are students of the game first,” wrote Anderson.

Yachty is famous for hook-heavy, lyricism-deprived songs like “One Night” and “Minnesota.” Plus, he’s only 19 years old, so he wasn’t even alive before B.I.G. and Pac died.

But was Anderson .Paak right for calling out unnamed artists for not knowing Hip Hop history? Keep in mind, the 30-year-old is signed to Aftermath. You know, the label founded by three decade Hip Hop veteran Dr. Dre.

Lil Boat responded to A.P.’s tweet and to the overall backlash too.
