Joey Makes the Claim and Fires Back at The Trolls and Haters on Social Media
Joey Bada$$ has been taking serious heat ever since he claimed in a recent interview to be a better rapper than the legendary 2Pac, widely considered to among the greatest lyricists of all time.
“I already know I’m a better rapper than Tupac is,” claimed the 22-year-old rapper in a recent spot for Genius via Youtube above. Bada$$ even went on to assert that he would “flame” ‘Pac in a rap battle, but the Brooklyn emcee now says his comments were taken out of context.
“When I said I was better than PAC (my favorite rapper of all time) I was refering [sic] to rap skill. Bar for bar. Not accolades or influence,” he tweeted in response to the criticism over his boast.
