Yes, you heard that right, XXXTentacion claims he is a better rapper than Tupac.
Certainly, he is not the first young rapper to claim that they are better than the late Tupac Shakur, just last year Kodak Black also echoed the same line. Pac is the benchmark for how good of a rapper you’re these days but ever so often some young cat overstep the bounds and say they are better than the West Coast legend. During his recent chat with DJ Akademiks, the Lauderhill rapper insisted that he is better than Pac while raising some eyebrows.
“I’m better than 2Pac, bro,” XXXTentacion insisted. “Please don’t compare me to him…Please don’t. 2Pac can’t make rock music. 2Pac couldn’t do that. 2Pac didn’t do that. 2Pac was a dancer and a poet and a rapper.” Akademiks then reminded him of Tupac’s credentials as a revolutionary figure in hip hop and X says he doesn’t care and continues his rant. “I don’t give a f***, there’s plenty of revolutionaries. What about Joyner Lucas?”
XXXTentacion then admitted that he is a big fan of The Notorious B.I.G. and thinks that Biggie is better than Tupac. He added that he wanted to spark a new debate about Tupac and Biggie while claiming the B.I.G. was a better rapper and better poet. “I think Biggie’s better, as far as a rapper,” he continues. “Tupac could articulate himself very well, but Biggie was a better poet.”
In his lengthy rant, XXXTentacion says he blame both rap legends for the current levels of gun violence among young kids, saying they should’ve put their differences aside and battle it out rather than kill each other. But let’s be clear, there is no evidence that Biggie Smalls had anything to do with Tupac’s murder. Notorious B.I.G.’s killing is widely seen as a reprisal for the death of Tupac.
Migos rapper Offset issued a lengthy apology for using a homophobic slur in his new song “Boss Life” with YFN Lucci.
The song was released last month and the video for the single was premiered earlier this week and since then Offset has come under fire for one line in his verse. “I cannot vibe with queers (hun hun), I got the heart of a bear (huh),” the Atlanta MC raps. Folks on Twitter attacked him mercilessly calling him homophobic among other things.
Offset has since come to his own defense by issuing an apology on Instagram while letting everyone know that he wasn’t referring to gay individuals when he used the word queer in his lyrics. “I didn’t write the line about gay people,” he wrote. “I have said before since these issues before that I got love for all people. My passion for fashion has lead me to a lot of gay people around me who I have mad respect for and we are very cool so I’m not in a place where I’m hating like that.
Offset posted a screenshot of the meaning of the word taken from Google. “When I wrote that I was thinking of words that could rhyme with the others (here, lear, solitaire, bear) and I saw this definition about her having a queer feeling she was being watched and it fit what I was thinking about a stalker creepy paparazzi situation,” he added. “To me that “queer” I don’t mean someone who’s gay. I mean lame people who film you, post it and stalk you. Lingo that means strange or odd. I M S O R R Y I A P O L O G I Z E I’m offended I offended anybody.”
Offset also spoke to his fans on IG Live where he further explains his stance on the issue and responded to the backlash.

Last year, Migos rapper Quavo also came under fire from some hip hop fans when he responded to a question about fellow rapper iLoveMakonnen coming out as gay. iLoveMakonnen received a lot of support from fans and when Quavo was asked about the support he has been receiving, he responded saying, “That’s because the world is f***** up.”
Cardi B has jump to Offset defense yet again amidst growing backlash from some fans.
The Migos rapper has been feeling the heat from fans today over a homophobic lyrics in his new single with YFN Lucci, “Boss Life.” One fan took it one step further to tell Cardi B that she deserves better and that proves to be a big mistake. We all know that Bardi is quick to clap back at fans on social media and this is no different except that she didn’t upload a video rant about it, just a simple response on Twitter.
“Cardi, you deserves someone better than Offset (I will always love you and respect your choices),” the fan wrote. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper quickly responded saying, “Don’t tell [me] about who I deserve with him or not you don’t know how he matured me. before I met him I ain’t had a lawyer, business management and I was insecure about my music he gave me confidence and help me get my business situated.”
She has since deleted that tweet, but not before folks got a screenshot of it. She also posted another tweet defending her response after some fans still wasn’t satisfied. “People are just too miserable for me I’m sorry I’m to blessed to be dealing with ya sh*t today. The negativity is not going to tarnish my feelings from these blessings and opportunities I’m getting. Have a good day.”
#TweetAndDelete: After all of the backlash #Offset received for his "queer" song lyric, #CardiB responded to a fan who suggested she deserved better than him. She ain't here for the negativity tho! #Swipe
Demarco says he is “Comfortable” with his new smash hit single.
The dancehall veteran is starting out the new year with another hit under his belt. His new single “Comfortable” was released last weekend and already it’s getting a lot of attention on dancehall airwaves. Demarco produced the single himself and released it under his own label True Gift Entertainment while offloading the distribution to Zojak World Wide.
“I’m a well-rounded artiste, producer, songwriter and engineer. When I go to the studio, I generally start off with a blank slate and whatever mood I am in or the feel I get, I just start writing; after I find the right melody, I then determine the direction I want to go,” Marco said.
Demarco has over ten years experience under his belt in the music. He started out in the mid-2000s as a producer before transitioning into an artist. He has since released a number of big hits like “Fallen Soldiers,” “I Love My Life,” and his recent single with Akon and Runtown “No Wahala.” The deejay signed a deal with Akon label last year and has been pushing his career internationally since.
Demarco revealed that he is shooting a music video for his new single “Comfortable.” Listen to the new song below.
Tommy Lee Sparta’s new EP New Creator has debut at No. 9 on the Billboard Reggae chart.
The EP was released on January 5th under Ricardo Gowe Records and has been doing well on iTunes. While that is an impressive achievement for the Guzu Musiq deejay, the sales figures paint a different picture. The project sold only 63 copies in its first week of release. Tommy Lee Sparta thank his fans for their support on IG despite the low sales numbers.
“New creator ep #9 on #billboard reggae charts #godisgood Spartans we all mek this possible y’all not my fan we family,” he wrote. Elsewhere on the chart, you will find Chronixx debut album Chronology at No. 8, SOJA’s album Poetry In Motion is at No. 6, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley‘s Stony Hill is at No. 4, while the top spot is being held by American band The Green.
Tommy Lee Sparta is currently working on his upcoming debut album, due in April of this year. The project will be the first off his multi-album deal with Sean Kingston’s label Time Is Money Entertainment. Chronixx and Damian Marley are currently battling with three other nominees this year for Best Reggae Album at the upcoming Grammy Awards. A rep for Sparta told us that he hopes to get a nomination next year for his upcoming album.
Aside from working on his new album, Tommy Lee Sparta is gearing up for some upcoming shows in Europe and the wider Caribbean. Last year was a big year for the former Gaza deejay who dominated the airwaves with his music after going back to his Gothic dancehall roots. He also scored some points in the streets for his diss tracks aimed at top-flight deejays Alkaline and Mavado. If you haven’t got a copy as yet, you can get Tommy Lee’s new EP on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon.
