A Hip-Hop Legend Surprisingly Comes to Lil Uzi's Defense

A Hip-Hop Legend Surprisingly Comes to Lil Uzi's Defense

Talk about a role reversal.

Published September 9, 2016

Ab-Soul made news recently when he went after Lil Uzi Vert and other “Lil” rappers for their supposed disrespect of '90s boom bap hip-hop.

It’s a sentiment DJ Premier would support, right? Nah. Actually he’s on Lil Uzi’s side. Apparently the two representatives of their hip-hop generations spoke and had a good conversation, according to Premo.

“Shout to the LiL Homie @LILUZIVERT for reachin' out to me directly... dope things were said and I respect that,” he tweeted. “We all good... Salute.”

Originally Soulo said, “We don’t pass on PRIMO beats in this sport, kids!” Some hip-hop heads praised the Top Dawg rapper for his comments, while some say it’s a different time and he’s allowed to do what he wants.

What do you think? Let us know in the comment section and peep DJ Premier’s tweet about his discussion with Lil Uzi Vert below.
