VLAD TV | Affion Crockett Slams Twitter Beefs, Talks Current State of Rap
In an exclusive interview with VladTV, comedian Affion Crockett speaks on what rap beef has evolved into and why he’s not impressed with the current wave of rappers.
With rap beefs jumping onto social media platforms, the traditional form of dropping bars on wax has become a thing of the past. While Kendrick Lamar had everyone at the edge of their seats with his “Control” verse in 2013, the momentum has faded. Rappers have continued to throw jabs at one another through Twitter and Instagram. With Crockett growing up during Hip Hop’s early years, the social media riffs aren’t as entertaining as people think.
“The internet has blended everything together and I don’t like it,” he said. “I’m exhausted with all the beef [and] people tweeting beef like c’mon man. Let’s just get back to the music. I don’t think the music as a whole, overall is hot enough for people to be so angry over nothing.”
He also shared his love for emcees like Rakim and Kool G Rap. While he enjoys the occasional turn up, he enjoys quality music over party tracks including music from Meek Mill.
