EXCLUSIVE: Lil Bibby Explains His "King of New York" Tweet, Picks Jay Z Over Drake + More (VIDEO)

(AllHipHop News) Lil Bibby has been one of the most talked about newcomers since he screenshot a direct message of Drake calling him and Lil Herb “the future” last April.The 19 year old gruff Chicago MC spoke EXCLUSIVELY with AllHipHop about his upcoming EP The Book, who would be the best co-sign and which side he’s picking in Jay Z vs. Drake.

Bibby told XXL that meeting Drake “scared him” when he first met him last year, because the Toronto superstar told him he was waiting on his new project. While Bibby admits that Drake is his favorite rapper, he not only attests to Jay Z being the holy grail of co-signs but also knows who is better between the two:

C’mon man. It’s Hov, man. [Laughs]. Drake, that’s my homie, man. But, you can’t do that, man.

Before the interview, Bibby caught some flack from Hot 97’s Ebro Darden for his “King of the New York” tweet:

Bibby explained it was all in good fun, but did not know his one tweet would cause that much of a stir on social media:

The “King of New York” thing, man, I was really joking around man. I ain’t know it was going to get like that. You see, my man Ebro.
