Is Dave East right or is he hating?
Lil Nas X recently made history. The young rapper’s breakout hit, “Old Town Road,” had the most streams in one week ever. There is one person who isn’t a fan of the song, however. And that’s Harlem rapper Dave East.
On his Instagram, East revealed his distaste for the song, calling it wack. East said:
This fucking ‘Old Town Road’ shit is fucking wack. I don’t know what the fuck is going on with hip-hop or rap but…that shit is wack with a cape on it. It’s super wack.
East’s comments quickly spread around. And Twitter took the side of Lil Nas X, mentioning the lack of hits East has:
Somebody said Dave East makes music for niggas who work warehouse overnight shifts and sell weed on the side.

Nah Dave East really got on here with ZERO HIT RECORDS OF HIS OWN and tried to hate on a nigga who might fuck around and go diamond on his first swing. Literally some hater shit if I ever saw it. The worst shit about it is that the song not even rap it’s country (on purpose) LOL https://t.co/5jaGpcsiHD

Some agreed with East, however:
Y’all know Dave East doesn’t have to agree with your opinion on music he is his own man No one will ever agree with everything you agree with get off his case guys focus on y’all self

Dave East Is A Top Tier Lyricist (Notice I Didn’t Say Rapper) That Don’t Need ANY Mainstream Validation. Y’all New Niggas Better Tighten Up And Get It Together.
