Lil Nas X is burning up the charts with his trap-country crossover hit “Old Town Road”, but not everybody gets the appeal of the song.
We can count rapper Dave East among those who doesn’t understand the popularity of “Old Town Road”, and he took to Instagram to share his disdain for the track.
“This f**kin’ ‘Old Town Road’ s**t is f**kin’ wack. I don’t know what the f**k is going on with hip-hop,” he says in a video he shared (and subsequently deleted). “I ain’t no hater, man, but that s**t is wack with a cape on it. It’s super wack.”
Lil Nas X apparently caught wind of East’s comments, and although he didn’t respond directly he did share a brief snippet of an interview with Kevin Hart, who complains that “that’s what’s cool now. What’s cool is being negative.”
East’s comments divided the Twitterverse, with some fans slamming him for dissing the track.
Meanwhile, other Twitter users completely agreed with him.
