Fat Joe attracted a lot of attention from hip hop fans after he said that DaBaby is Tupac Shakur from 2021.
The bold statement was made while Fat Joe was visiting Big Tigger for the revival of BET’s “Rap City.”
Tigger played a game with Fat Joe, asking his opinion on who the 2021 version of some hip-hop legends is.
When Tigger asked “Who is the 2021 version of Tupac Shakur?” Joey Crack’s response left rap fans in shock.
“I should know Tupac’s,” Fat Joe replied. “I don’t know, it’s hard to be these guys. You’re asking some crazy questions. I’d say DaBaby. “
DaBaby shared the clip on his page, letting Fat Joe know that he agrees with it.
After the clip went viral, Fat Joe received a lot of criticism from fans for making the comparison.
In return, Joey Crack posted on Instagram on Wednesday to explain his unpopular opinion and refused to retract his statement.
“I’m not making excuses, I’m not asking for forgiveness, I’m not … any of that,” Fat Joe said. But who is the new Tupac? I don’t know, but I’m going to guess, ”he said, adding that he knew the late Tupac Shakur in real life.
He then went on to explain why he specifically said DaBaby when asked that question.
“I’m thinking… DaBaby a real one. A real certified one! “Said Fat Joe.” Like it or not like it or whatever, I think he lives what he raps. And that’s a lot like Tupac. “
So Fat Joe made it clear that DaBaby is NOT Tupac Shakur.
“Is it Tupac Shakur? NO! No one will ever be Tupac Shakur. “
