Dave East caused a storm on the Internet after sharing his unpopular opinion on “Old Town Road.” East referred to the song as “super wack” before the Internet exploded on him and brought up the fact that the Harlem native has never had a #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. Lil Nas X later dismissed the comments during a recent interview but it doesn’t seem like Dave East is taking offense to it. In fact, the Def Jam signee said that Lil Nas X shouldn’t care what he has to say.
Hopping on Instagram Live, Dave East responded to Lil Nas X’s interview where he said, “I have the No. 1 song in the country. I do not give a fuck what Dave East is saying.” East said that Lil Nas X answered the question correctly but blamed the internet for blowing things out of proportion.
“Then y’all gon’ ask the lil n***a what he think about what I say. He’s not supposed to give a fuck about what I say — I don’t give a fuck what nobody say,” he said. “I couldn’t even get mad at lil’ homie. That’s a kid. Doin’ his thing, man. Bad song. Internet tried to twist the whole shit.”
Despite the initial criticism that East faced, Ebro backed up the Harlem emcee, saying he’s “supposed to dislike ‘Old Town Road’ because HipHop needs him to.”
