Hopsin Says He Took An L For His Past Hate On Lil Wayne + Calls Him An Amazing Rapper

During a recent Instagram Live session for his fans (watch below), Hopsin addressed his hate on Lil Wayne in the past.

The Los Angeles rapper says there has always been Wayne songs he loved even back when he made negative comments, as well as that he “can confidentially say Lil Wayne is an amazing rapper” and “the metaphors and punchlines are definitely really good”.

Hopsin goes on to admit he “took an L” for his comments and “was definitely sleeping” on Weezy, but reveals it was all because he was caught up in a wave of hating on anything mainstream at the time.

Montana Of 300 Praises Lil Wayne, Talks About His Remixes & Freestyles

Montana Of 300 recently sat down with DJ Smallz for a one on one interview. In their conversation, the Chicago rapper revealed Lil Wayne is one of his favorite rappers and hearing his “Upgrade U” freestyle off Da Drought 3 for the first time blew him away “mentally”, as well as “motivated the shit” out of him.

Also throughout the interview, which you can check out after the jump below, Montana spoke on Tunechi numerous times and admitted to not hearing all of Dedication 6 just yet, but he is planning on sitting down to listen to it as “an artist”, because Tune is one of the only rappers left who has a different way of thinking outside of the box.

The Chicago rapper even mentioned that no one appreciates real lyricism anymore and the increase of “mumble rap” has stopped the amount of remixes and freestyles from being recorded. For examples, Montana used Weezy‘s “A Milli” and “6 Foot 7 Foot” songs by explaining how no mumble rapper could go and remix them and not actually rap about anything as remixes have always been lyrically better than the original!
