Lil Debbie says that the younger generation of Rap artists have a negative view of the artists that preceded them.
“I’m noticing the new guys coming out don’t like the old heads anymore,” Lil Debbie says during an interview that premiered in the DX Daily today (October 10). “I was online and I seen Travis Scott on Twitter talkin’ ‘bout, ‘I don’t fuckin’ listen to that old shit. Fuck the old heads trying to take the shine and not letting us new guys [move].’ I’m like, ‘You’ve kinda got a point,’ but at the same time, you have to pay respects. I’m mean, duh. They paved the way. At the same time, I feel you. At a certain age, call it what it is. Go do something else.”
Lil Debbie points to Dr. Dre and 2 Chainz as older rappers who remain successful. She does not see female rappers being able to succeed on the same level as they age, though.
“You’re not going to be 55 as a female on the rap scene because Lil’ Kim’s trying to be on the rap scene right now,” she says. “And as much as I love that bitch, that is my bitch — Hard Core, that is my shit…but she’s out here pregnant trying to be on the scenes again and it’s kinda like, ‘You’re too old for this shit ‘cause nobody cares anymore. Nobody cares,’ as much as I fuckin’ love your guts.”
