Tekashi 6ix9ine gives credit where credit is due. His latest praise is to ATL rapper, Lil Baby. Last Friday, both rappers debut new songs. After a number of date changes, 6ix9ine dropped his anticipated single, “TROLLZ,” with Nicki Minaj.
The My Turn rapper dropped his newest single “The Bigger Picture.” His songs align with the current times, addressing racism, police brutality, Black Lives Matters, and more.
6ix9ine broke his previous record of most Youtube views for a Hip-Hop video in 24 hours with 46 million. His former feat was 43 million following the release of “GOOBA.” On the other hand, Lil Baby has amassed 5.6 millions views since its Friday release. Both songs were well received. But Twitter was not happy with the amount of love that Tekashi 6ix9ine received as oppose to Lil Baby.
Despite the comparison, 6ix9ine took to Instagram comments to share that Lil Baby is currently his favorite rapper. While many Hip-Hop heads do not agree with the colorful rapper often, this is a sentiment that they share in common. Meek Mill and Tory Lanez took to Twitter to voice their praise of Quality Control Music’s biggest artist following the release of “The Bigger Picture.”
Meek says Lil Baby is trending upward towards legendary status. Tory believes Lil Baby deserves a Grammy mid-way through 2020. Do you think Lil Baby is 2020’s Hip-Hop MVP thus far?
His album, My Turn, recently returned to the top of Billboard 200 charts almost 4 months after its release. The project was certified platinum last month as well.
