Waka Flocka Flame Says Lil Uzi Vert Is ‘Rock Not Hip-Hop’

Published

The old school vs new school rap divide is no new phenomenon: Last week, the internet was lit aflame when an interview between Lil Yachty and Joe Budden on Complex’s “Everyday Struggle” surfaced where veteran rapper Joe Budden attempted to school Lil Yatchy about the industry and hip-hop. Over the weekend, Lil Uzi Vert was the latest new school rhymer to receive backlash, this time from Waka Flocka, who expressed his opinions about the Philly native.

Waka Flocka commented on an image of Lil Uzi Vert (clad in a striped, ripped t-shirt) with “Your Hip Hop” above Uzi’s head, alongside an image of Queens rapper Nas that read “My Hip Hop,” saying of the photo: “This post ain’t bool @liluzivert is Rock not Hip Hop”. He went on to list rappers Logic, Meek Mill, J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar saying “let my era be great!!!” before ending the post with the hashtag “#ImJustTakingUpForHipHop.

The self-proclaimed “rockstar” (see: his guest appearance on Playboi Carti’s “wokeuplikethis*”) may not be a preferred hip-hop pick of the genre’s veterans, but Uzi has had his fair share of hits on the hip-hop charts — including his “XO TOUR Llif3,” which sits at No. 6 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs on the chart dated May 20.

By

The latest creation from Nike‘s familial design duo of Tobie and Tinker Hatfield, the Air Max 90 FlyEase is an inclusive, adaptive lifestyle design that’s all about ease of entry and removal. It first debuted around Air Max Day 2020, and has since released in a handful of vibrant styles — the latest of which is a patriotic white, blue and red.



Almost all of the design pieces from the original Air Max 90 are left intact. Toeboxes and quarters are dressed in white mesh and leather, respectively, while plastic eyestays are split between navy and red. Tongues continue the navy and red mixture, while blue mudguards and red Swooshes provide signature Nike Sportswear flair. For a finishing touch, the heel’s recognizable Air Max unit is surrounded by red EVA foam.

Drakeo The Ruler Drops “GTA VI” & “Backflip Or Sumn” Recorded From Prison

Published

on

Drakeo The Ruler is still incarcerated, awaiting a retrial in connection with a murder case that he was already acquitted for.

On July 25, 2019, he was acquitted of his murder and attempted murder charges in a Compton courthouse. However, the district attorney decided to refile charges of criminal gang conspiracy and shooting from a motor vehicle in August, two counts that resulted in a hung jury during his initial trial.

However, he will not let that get in his way as he continues to be one of West Coast’s most promising and original voices, and now back with two new singles recorded through jail phones from forthcoming ‘Thank You for Using GTL’ project.

“GTA VI” and “Backflip Or Sumn” have became instantaneously two must-listen-to songs that thrive to introduce his upcoming 18-track effort ‘Thank You For Using GTL’ inspired by the raps he sent to producer JoogSzn over the inmate telephone systems used in for-profit prisons. However the grainy voice still rides the beat with ease.

Earlier this week, Drakeo dropped his “Vintage & Adventurous” including the not-so-subtle shot at the early release of a particular New York-based rapper. “Tell the truth, I am not 6ix9ine,” he proclaims. A number of collaborators teamed up to remix his greatest hits on Free Drakeo earlier this year including guest appearances by Danny Brown and Maxo Kream.

Earl Sweatshirt held absolutely nothing back when he blessed the “Ion Rap Beef” Remix, opening with a defiant, “F*ck the D.A., free the Ruler/ Sex cancelled, I went right for that medulla/ Talkin’ spicy hella easy, n*ggas hide behind computers.”
