This situation is like "Who cares?," but lets talk about this. Lil Yatchy apparently does not know 5 song from two of the best rappers ever - Biggie and Tupac. First of all, lets do the math. This is the 20th year anniversary of Tupac's DEATH - and clearly longer with his musical legacy. Lil Yachty is 19 years old. In a new interview with Billboard, he speaks on his views on it
“If I’m doing this my way and making all this money, why should I do it how everybody says it’s supposed to be done?”
“It’s just fun, it’s not serious. I hate serious rap. It’s boring. Serious rap music puts me to sleep.”
“I just can’t wait until the point when everyone understands hip-hop isn’t the same anymore, just don’t like me because I’m not lyrical enough… If you ever read comments and click on their profile, they’re like super old.”
Man, I think people need to know their history. I don't believe they need to be beholden to it. So, my thoughts are that Lil Yachty should do whatever he wants to do, because he's gotta live with that.
Anyway, here is "Mase In 97" for dat ol' a**. Pause for the cause.
But not not knowing certain classics...
Here's a lob, lil brother. Both Pac and Biggie's Greatest Hits (a lot of them at least).
