Lil Yachty likes writing goofy little ditties and trolling everybody's idols.
In doing so, the 19-year old makes no bones about having little knowledge of Hip Hop heroes like Biggie and Tupac.
Anderson .Paak took exception to Yachty's ignorance with this subliminal Tweet.
Don't be cocky in the fact that you don't know anything about hip hop history. Real artists are students of the game first— Andy $ide$tick (@AndersonPaak) August 27, 2016
Yachty obviously pays more attention to social media than he does to 90s rap, because he responded to Paak's criticism.

I think it's funny how people feel like you HAVE to like something just cause everybody else does — lil boat (@lilyachty) August 28, 2016
Or like I HAVE to know something.— lil boat (@lilyachty) August 28, 2016
In where in the handbook of hip hop does it say u must know this list of songs to make music. Lmao — lil boat (@lilyachty) August 28, 2016
Here's one Twitter user's opinion of the debate:
@AndersonPaak seems as if you forgot what an artist is. @lilyachty is changing shit and has people shook.— Super Secret Sam (@niceYEETicyPETE) August 28, 2016
What say you?
