Ahh the good ole young hip hop artist vs grump ole rapper debate.
Lil’ Yachty and Joe Budden faced off against each other to finally try and bring some understanding in the debate, and bridge the gap between two generations of artists.
They did so on the Complex debate show called Everyday Struggle where the two went back and forth and Yachty stood up for himself.
“So when you come from a college dorm room, with no money, you scamming credit cards, and you ain’t gettin’ no play with no girls, you have no clothes, you have no car and you come to having three or four cars, millions of dollars, half a million dollars on your body just to wear, and any kind of clothes you want, any h**s you want, how can you be upset? And that’s where you have a problem.”
“First off you said I’m signed to Capitol, correct. Then you basically discredited Capitol for everything we have in hip-hop. Now you know Migos is signed to Capitol? Number one music group. … Just because I’m not hood and street and I’m signed to Capitol does not mean I didn’t come from [Quality Control]. I’m from Atlanta. I have my own concept in how I brand myself and how I make my s*** pop because I know how to do this s***. I don’t have no nice corporate white person in my ear. I’m happy that I can make you think I got somebody behind me. That lets me know I’m doing the right s*** the right way.”
Of course Budden yelled at him as well. They mentioned Lil’ Yachty’s past interview with Ebro in the Morning during the segment in which Ebro and Yachty first had the first big debate about his style of music. He also returned last week to update everyone on what was going on next in his career.
You can watch Yachty perform on the Hot 97 Summer Jam Festival Stage on June 11. For tickets go here.
