Fat Joe disses Lil' Uzi Vert, calls him a 'bad version of Lil' Wayne'

During a recent interview with Ebro Darden on Beats 1, Fat Joe explained why he feels like rappers today are taking pages out of Lil' Wayne’s book. 

“You hear all these little kids now, who doing hip-hop music, those is all Lil' Wayne’s flows,” he said. “Every last one.”

The Terror Squad rapper then singled out new school rapper Lil' Uzi Vert after host Ebro Darden brought up “XO TOUR Llif3.”

“Lil Uzi is a bad version of Lil Wayne,” said Joe. “It’s not as good as Lil Wayne. Just to be honest with you, and he’s good, and I like his songs.”

Fat Joe insisted that he meant no disrespect.

“Lil Uzi, I got nothing but love for you,” he said. “He ain’t as good as Lil Wayne. That’s impossible. Lil Wayne was considered, he’s one of the greatest, he’s a G.O.A.T. He was lyrically considered the best rapper on earth for a couple of years. Lil Uzi Vert ain’t going to get that. And it’s with no disrespect because I like Lil Uzi Vert and I like a lot of his records. I cannot front. I actually bought his album. It’s a good album. I don’t want to take it disrespectful in no way, but Lil Wayne is Lil Wayne. That’s different.”
