Joe Budden vs. Lil Yachty is a meme of the year candidate.
Lil Yachty appeared on the Complex internet show Everyday Struggle yesterday to defend his honor against Joe Budden, who had attacked Yachty's hip hop credentials with a righteous fury. The encounter reached a fever pitch during the following exchange:
Budden: Tell me what you want from hip-hop.
Yachty: I don’t …
Budden: You don’t think that’s a question you should answer at some point?
Yachty: What do I want from hip-hop?
Budden: Or are you leaving all of this to [Quality Control] to figure out.
Yachty: Nah, I mean, I’m just — I’m making music, bro. I’m having fun! Nahmsayin’. My fans love it.
Budden: You’re gonna have a problem with “just having fun” in five years. You’re gonna have a big problem with just having fun. You don’t sound like you’re very aware of what’s going on, and you one of the hottest n—s on Earth.
Yachty: Well, what do you want me to say? Want me to say —
Budden: I want you to be aware of your business. I want you to know if you in the 360 or not. I want you to appreciate the culture that changed your life and took you from the college dorm room eating Oodles of Noodles. I want you, who’s well-spoken and articulates himself well —
Yachty: My nigga, chilllllll.
The internet had fun with this one. Check out the best memes created from Budden and Yachty's argument below.
