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.

TI Puts Lil Wayne In His Top Lyricists List, Says He Has An Incredible Skill Set & Gives An Example

T.I. recently chopped it up with DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God on Power 105.1 FM’s “The Breakfast Club” radio show in New York City for an interview.

Around the 8:00 mark of their conversation after talking about his top rappers list, which you can watch below, Tip went on to discuss a top lyricist only list and mentioned Lil Wayne would appear in this to which Charlamagne disagreed.

The Atlanta rapper/actor then said Wayne has an “incredible skill set” and used his “safe sex is great sex, better wear a latex cause you don’t want that late text, that ‘I think I’m late’ text” bar from the “Lollipop” remix as a perfect example, as well as discussed how difficult it is to accomplish a triple entendre like this and apply it in music!

Q-Tip recently took part in an interview with Noisey and during their conversation, he had some nice words to say about Lil Wayne:

“I love Wayne. I think he’s a fucking beast. He’s an ill lyricist. He’s a prodigy. I love to do stuff with him. And that’s my boy, too. We talk sports and all of that shit. Yeah man, he’s acutely intelligent. Highly intelligent, skilled. He’s just got so much soul. I could go on and on about him. He’s one of my favorites, as an MC, as a visionary—like, he’s just dope. He’s just so dope. He’s fucking brilliant… he’s just a cool motherfucker, man. He really is. He’s a special guy. And I really love, like, Tha Block Is Hot, 500 Degreez, all that early stuff, too.”

The two of them have previously collaborated on “Renaissance Rap” and “Thank You“. What are your thoughts on Tip‘s praise for Weezy?
