Ab-Soul Calls Out Lil Uzi Vert For Not Rapping Over DJ Premier Beat


Back in February, Lil Uzi Vert let it be known he does not rap over 1990’s Hip Hop beats.

The XXL 2016 Freshman Class member told Hot 97’s Ebro In The Morning, “I’m telling you right now, if you pull up one of those old beats I’m not rapping on it.”

Earlier in the interview, Ebro Darden wanted to get Uzi to rap over DJ Premier’s “Mass Appeal” production, but the Philadelphia representative refused, claiming he was “too young” and he is “not into that.”

California’s Ab-Soul has now expressed his thoughts about rappers not wanting to rhyme over Premier tracks. The TDE emcee took a subtle shot at Uzi and other “lil n-ggaz” on Twitter.

This is the latest example of one Hip Hop artist calling out another performer about “freestyling” on the radio. Recently, Pete Rock also took issue with Lil Boat for his awkward rap session on Hot 97.

DJ Drama, who signed Lil Uzi to his Generation Now label with Don Cannon, recently discussed the issue with AllHipHop.com in an exclusive interview.
