Hip Hop is still reacting to 21 Savage’s claim that Nas is irrelevant and now Hit-Boy is weighing in too.
“Even take the 21 Savage thing, I feel like that’s a part of King’s Disease. How do you look at a Black Hip Hop artist, legendary guy, who just won his first Grammy a couple years ago,” said the producer.
“[Nas] just put out four critically-acclaimed albums and we don’t see these young rock guys like, ‘Aerosmith, them n-ggas ain’t relevant.’ We wouldn’t see that but we have to see that with Hip Hop and that’s just wack. That’s what’s keeping us there. That’s King’s Disease.”
On Clubhouse, 21 said that even though Nas is a legend and has a loyal fanbase, he is not a relevant artist.
He then tried to clean it all up on Twitter, “I would never disrespect nas or any legend who paved the way for me y’all be tryna take stuff and run with it,” he tweeted.
