Dave East isn't here for your memes. The New York rapper said on social media that he doesn't understand the appeal of Lil Nas X's tongue-in-cheek country-rap hit "Old Town Road."
"This f**king 'Old Town Road' sh*t is f**king wack," he said. "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."
The declaration tore Twitter apart with users declaring for either side.
Noted rap writers and hosts attempted to keep the peace.
Anyone looking for nuance on the internet has to live in a state of constant disappointment. Lil Nas X himself has yet to directly respond.
