Is Waka Flocka throwing shade at Lil Wayne, for Lil Wayne throwing shade at the new wave of rappers?
Lil Wayne's "Gone Til November" book release has spurred many news items, not only from memoir excerpts, but from brand new interviews the New Orleans native has been conducting in an effort to promote the book. Among his interviews, he did a piece with New York Times, where he (innocently or not) threw shade at the young rappers out here doing their thing-- specifically, the crop consisting of Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yachty, 21 Savage and Kodak Black.
When asked about these rappers, Wayne replied, "I swear to God I didn’t know you were saying people’s names just now, so that should probably answer that question. I just do my own thing."
This afternoon Waka Flocka shared a video where he big ups these young'ns, and it seems like a response to Wayne's comments-- Weezy isn't mentioned by name, but given the timeline of events, it would make sense, especially given either artists' comments. However according to the comment section on our Instagram page, Beanie Sigel could get it too.
Waka says in the video, "Mufuckas be throwing shade to these young n*ggas too. Yall n*ggas stop fronting like ya don't be hearing about these young n*ggas rapping and turning up. Stop hating on these young n*ggas."
