Fat Joe Tells Ebro: Lil Uzi Vert Is A Bad Version Of Lil Wayne

The "Pick It Up" performer is set to appear on Beats 1 Radio.

(AllHipHop News) Fat Joe and Dre of Cool & Dre will appear on Ebro’s Beats 1 radio show this afternoon. The interview includes Joey Crack discussing Lil Wayne's influence on today's rappers.

A sneak peek of the conversation has been released. Joe can be heard contrasting Atlantic Records newcomer Lil Uzi Vert to the five-time Grammy winner.

"Lil Uzi is a bad version of Lil Wayne. It's not as good as Lil Wayne," says Fat Joe. "I'm gonna just be honest with you. And he’s good and I like his songs."

The "Pick It Up" rhymer continues, "Lil Uzi I got nothing but love for you. He ain’t as good as Lil Wayne. That’s impossible. Lil Wayne was considered - he’s one of the greatest. He’s a GOAT. Not only that, he was lyrically considered the best rapper on earth for a couple of years. Lil Uzi Vert ain’t gonna get that."

Fat Joe also admits he bought Uzi's Luv Is Rage 2. The Bronx representative tells Ebro, "It’s a good album. I don’t want to take it disrespectful in no way, but Lil Wayne is Lil Wayne. That’s different."

The Fat Joe/Dre interview on Beats 1 Radio will air today (January 24) at 4 pm ET. Listen to the preview on iTunes.
