Fat Joe has fans up in arms after comparing DaBaby to the late and great Tupac Shakur.
On Tuesday DaBaby shared on his Instagram page a clip from Fat Joe’s appearance on Rap City ’21. During the special, host Big Tigger asked Joe who’s the 2021 version of Tupac Shakur, to which he responded: “I don’t know, it’s hard to be these guys. You be asking some crazy stuff. I would say DaBaby.”
To be fair Tigger asked Joe to name the 2021 version of several other hip-hop legends — but this answer had Twitter cracking up.
