Fat Joe has been in Hip-Hop long enough to speak his mind about anything he feels, and he still has gas left in the tank apparently along with enthusiasm for the up and comers in the game. In a sit-down with Beats 1’s Ebro Darden, Joey Crack took a light shot at Lil Uzi Vert in saying he and other young rappers are Lil Wayne carbon copies but he didn’t throw him all the way under the bus.
“You hear all these little kids now, who doing hip-hop music, those is all Lil Wayne’s flows,” Fat Joe said, just ahead of him dropping the jab to the chin.
“Lil Uzi is a bad version of Lil Wayne. It’s not as good as Lil Wayne. Just to be honest with you, and he’s good, and I like his songs,” Joe added. He went on to say that he copped Lil Uzi Vert’s latest project Luv Is Rage 2 and promised he wasn’t being disrespectful.
