Fat Joe: 'Lil Uzi Vert Is a Bad Version of Lil Wayne'

  /  01.23.2018

Fat Joe takes on Lil Uzi Vert.

During an interview with Ebro Darden on Beats 1, Joey Crack explained why he feels like today’s MCs are taking pages out of Lil Wayne’s book. “You hear all these little kids now, who doing hip-hop music, those is all Lil Wayne’s flows,” he said. “Every last one.”

Don Cartagena singled out Lil Uzi Vert after host Ebro Darden brought up “XO TOUR Llif3.” “Lil Uzi is a bad version of Lil Wayne,” said Joe. “It’s not as good as Lil Wayne. Just to be honest with you, and he’s good, and I like his songs.”

He insisted that he meant no disrespect with the slights. “Lil Uzi, I got nothing but love for you,” he added. “He ain’t as good as Lil Wayne. That’s impossible. Lil Wayne was considered, he’s one of the greatest, he’s a G.O.A.T. He was lyrically considered the best rapper on earth for a couple of years. Lil Uzi Vert ain’t going to get that. And it’s with no disrespect because I like Lil Uzi Vert and I like a lot of his records. I cannot front. I actually bought his album. 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.”

To clarify his point, the Terror Squad boss added: “I didn’t shit on Lil Uzi. I can’t say how much I appreciate him. I’m just saying Lil Wayne inspired generations of music.”

Joe is currently promoting his new single “Pick It Up” featuring Dre of Cool & Dre. The veteran MC is also celebrating his new podcast, “Coca Vision,” which has featured guests Swizz Beatz, Styles P, and Sheek Louch.
