Next on Pete Rock’s hit list? Lil Yachty.
It all began when the legendary producer posted this dissing both Lil Yachty and Young Dolph by reposting this meme on Instagram:
Lil Yachty responded back to Rock by tweeting this:
This isn’t really all to surprising after Yatchy famously admitted to not being able to name five Tupac or Biggie songs, which in turn, obviously, angered the hiphop community.
Not to soon after his initial tweet, Lil Yachty followed up with three more tweets with a change of heart:
Despite not knowing his hip-hop history, Lil Yachty is making a name for himself amongst the new generation. He recently announced that he was signed to Quality Control, home of The Migos, Rich The Kid and OG Maco.
Pete Rock is well within his rights to question the young rapper. After all, Rock has produced for some the best in the game, Biggie, Nas, A Tribe Called Quest and Common.
