Blueface is ruffling some feathers after he made a comment saying that comedians should not try to crossover into the rap lane. The “Thotiana” rapper lectured Shiggy, a comedian who helped popularize Drake’s “In My Feelings” song with his viral “In My Feelings” Challenge, about staying in his lane as he tries to crossover into the hip hop world. He said, “Listen, if you a comedian and you trying to jump in the rap lane, it’s not going to work out the way you think it’s going to work out. Just because you got four million followers, the people follow you cause you’re a comedian. Once you try to rap, they not going to take you serious.”
Blueface’s advice caught the attention of Lil Duval and he quickly reminded him of his success as a rapper and comedian. In an Instagram post, Duval posted a screenshot of his his accolades in the music industry. The post read, “Lil Duval earns his first No. 1 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart as “Smile (Livin’ My Best Life)” jmups 3-1 on the list.” He captioned the photo, “#jokesonyoublu #nowcittyboywitit.”
Blueface was not going to let it end there. He made a video addressing Duval’s comments about his success as a rapper. He said, “Lil Duval has entered the chat. Lil Duval song did not go platinum. It was a nice little viral moment just like everybody has if they got the right resources and utensils. I actually fuck with the song, the song was funny as hell. It was pure comedy. Smile bitch, smile bitch. That’s why it went up. He didn’t make no hardcore song, no trap song. Dick and pussy, fucking your hoe. Crip, that’s what I was telling Shiggy. You gotta make a comedic song. Fuck!”
Do you think comedians can crossover into the hip hop world?
