Tank takes to Instagram to defend Uzi & Lil Boat.
If there's ever been a time when tensions bewtween old heads and the new school have been high, it's most certainly now.
Looks like Hip-Hop's OGs aren't the only one weighing in as R&B crooner Tank most recently took to Instagram to express his frustrations about the backlash that artists like Lil Yachty and Lil Uzi Vert have been receiving because of their unconventional approaches to the genre.
Posting a photo of both emcees together, his caption began, "I'm disgusted!"
He went on to touch on his opposition to "Grown black men" speaking out "against young black kids fighting to earn a living in this already difficult world! Yes they're different but so was MJ and Prince!
"Y'all still celebrate those men highly with no thought to their differences. The crazy part is that these kids actually represent positivity. They give a voice to those who feel like outcasts and may even have a hard time fitting in. These kids make being different ok and give hope to those who may feel like their life has no value."
"Maybe you'd feel better if these kids ran up on your car high and tooled up with extended clips and told you to "get down, lay down, or be found!" That would make more sense to you huh? You definitely don't want them to live their dreams and have fun entertaining the world! You definitely don't want them to feed their families and get they mama out the hood."
"You niggas kill me wanting your music to stay in the 80s and the 90s but gotta have the 2018 Benz! Everything changes! Everything evolves! It may not be for you but it is for the millions that stream it and show up to be entertained by it! Let these kids live!!"
He later went on to post photos of singers Prince and Mick Jagger, writing, "They talked crazy about him at first and now they worship his legacy faithfully. Let people live and chase their own greatness!" under the photo of Prince.
