Memes work best when they describe something everyone is thinking or at least wish they thought. A simple photo and a handful of words can go far in the digital age. All it takes is one viral picture infiltrating into pop culture. For heaven’s sake, part of the Drake vs. Meek Mill battle was won through memes. Every week, the crafty imaginations of social media manage to create something displaying wit, wisdom, crass ideas and more. Some will make you laugh, feel disgusted and probably confused. Weekly, we’ll be weeding out the best memes through “All Eyez On Memes.”
Lil Yachty has been the poster child for the new generation of rappers not having respect for the pioneering greats. Besides admitting to not knowing any Tupac or Biggie songs in August. Just this month, the Quality Control artist manage to catch fire from Pete Rock who had an issue with the era of “mumble rappers.”
Then over the weekend, this hits the web.
Social media didn’t wait one moment to respond to what many rap fans consider pure blasphemy. Drake, the one caught utilizing ghostwriters, better than Tupac? Yes, the reactions were quick and without mercy.
