For the second week in a row, “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X is the #1 song in the country, and New York rapper Dave East couldn’t care less, because according to him, the song is “super wack.”
East said in a video shared to his Instagram stories
“This f**kin’ ‘Old Town Road’ sh*t is f**kin’ wack. I don’t know what the f**k is going on with hip-hop or rap but … that sh*t is wack with a cape on it. It’s super wack.”

While everyone is certainly entitled to their opinions, Twitter was not here for the slander against Lil Nas X and “Old Town Road” and promptly commenced to drag Mr. East.
“Name me 5 good Dave East songs,” one person tweeted. “I’ll wait. I promise I’ll wait. I’ll wait all day honestly.”
Said another: “Dave East hasn’t created one song that’s better than Old Town Road. Opinion is voided.”

Nah Dave East really got on here with ZERO HIT RECORDS OF HIS OWN and tried to hate on a nigga who might fuck around and go diamond on his first swing. Literally some hater shit if I ever saw it. The worst shit about it is that the song not even rap it’s country (on purpose) LOL https://t.co/5jaGpcsiHD

I'm not gonna say Dave East is wrong about Old Town Road, but it's also kinda funny how a goofy meme track is bigger than anything he's done so far in his career.

Somebody said Dave East makes music for niggas who work warehouse overnight shifts and sell weed on the side.

Lil Nas X has yet to respond directly, but he did post this video on Twitter of Kevin Hart talking about how it’s “cool to be negative” not too long after Dave East’s comments went viral
