Lil Yachty holds a grudge: Sean Paul once threw shade at Yachty, and Yachty still harbors negative feelings towards Paul.
Yachty recently released the first episode of his new podcast, A Safe Place, which he co-hosts with MitchGoneMad. In the June 28th episode, Yachty and Mitch discussed the topic of “falling off,” and Mitch mentioned Sean Paul. Yachty responded by saying, “Nobody ever said Sean Paul fell off. They just stopped making music. I don’t think they’re still dropping music… By the way, f*ck Sean Paul. I want to make it very clear, I don’t f*ck with Sean Paul. Sean Paul once dissed me in a radio interview.”
The interview Yachty is referring to (as Complex notes) took place in 2016 on The Breakfast Club. This was shortly after Yachty admitted that he couldn’t name five songs by the Notorious B.I.G. or Tupac. In response, Paul said, “If it was really about talent in the hip hop industry, you wouldn’t have some of these younger cats talking that […]. The Lil Yachty dem. The ‘boat boy.’ I mean, I don’t know much of the dude’s music either. I don’t like his comments. Those are artists I revere. I understand that probably kids don’t care about writing right now. I understand they don’t know where hip-hop started.”
