Ever since the passing of Biggie, millennial rappers from Brooklyn have been vying for the “King of New York” crown, but between the controversial Tekashi 6ix9ine and the late Pop Smoke, the court of popular opinion leans heavily towards the latter and his new album, Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon, has a lot to do with why.
Obviously, 6ix9ine has fans all around the globe, with songs like the Nicki Minaj assisted “Trollz” as proof of why.
The 20-year-old Canarsie favorite wasn’t buying into the hype he shared with his inter-borough competition. On the track “Gangstas” from Smoke’s new LP, which dropped yesterday(July 3), Smoke told the world how he felt about 6ix9ine.
On the track, the “Woo” rapper spits, “On set that’s some real sh*t n***a/ I don’t want none of that extra loud shit/ This ain’t none of that rainbow hair shit/ this the real straight shit..”
Will 6ix9ine respond? More than likely, but even from the grave, the streets have spoken.
Listen to “Gangstas” below.
