Up-and-coming rapper Lil Durk said he believes he is the rapper closest to JAY-Z last year, and talked about the rap legend’s dominance in New York. His comments were not well received by hip-hop fans, but they showered Durk with praise after the announcement.
This weekend, Durk repeated a similar claim, appearing during a concert in Chicago and telling the audience that he felt like JAY-Z because of the way they greeted him. He yelled to the crowd:
“What we doing? This is like one of those moments where you stand here like you motherfucking JAY-Z in this bitch, for real, right?”
While this year’s comparison is lighter, people are still a little angry that Lil Durk is trying to compare himself to such an iconic figure as Jay-Z.
