fbpx Fat Joe Says Lil Uzi Vert A "Bad Version Of Lil Wayne" | The Beat 99.9 FM

Fat Joe was on the Ebro’s Beats 1 Radio show, where he gave his opinion on the new generation of rappers. He referenced on Lil Uzi Vert, who he calls a “bad version of Lil Wayne.” “You hear all these little kids now who doing Hip Hop music,” he tells Ebro. “Those is all Lil Wayne’s flows. Every last one. 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.” He said, “Lil Uzi, I got nothing but love for you. 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. Not only that, he was lyrically considered the best rapper on earth for a couple of years. Lil Uzi Vert ain’t going to get that. 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.” Ebro said, “It’s a good album. Yo, the album’s really good,” to which Joe says, “It’s a good 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.”


Ebro goes on to tease the Terror Squad/D.I.T.C. vet about “shitting” on Lil Uzi, but Joe insists, “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.” In the episode, which also featured Dre of the production duo Cool & Dre, Joe discusses his new single “Pick It Up,” the Grammy Awards, Cardi B’s success and his previous release, “So Excited.”
