Lil Nas X topped the Billboard Hot 100 with his breakout hit “Old Town Road.” Not everyone is a fan though, and Dave East is one of them!

Dave East was on Instagram live, when someone asked if he would be freestyling over the new hit track and he quickly denied. He said, “That f*ckin “Old Town Road” shit is fucking wack” and he went on to say, “I ain’t no hater, man, but that sh*t is wack with a cape on it, it’s super wack!”

Lil Nas X hasn’t made a direct response to Dave’s comments, but he did post a snippet of Kevin Hart on Twitter talking about how “hating” is the cool thing to do. Although Dave isn’t digging the “Old Town Road” track, Lil Nas X is getting a lot of support from other rappers.

Billboard took the track off of their Hot Country Songs chart, saying it “does not embrace enough elements of today’s country music.” Artists like Ski Mask The Slump God, Joe Budden, and other rappers spoke out in his defense.
Especially since so many other artists end up on the Billboard Charts as “Hip-Hop.” 9th Wonder wrote on Twitter, “and if we don’t accept it…we don’t want the genre to grow, and we are purists and stuck in our ways. But they kick homie off the country charts tho, because it’s not country to “them”..”Got it.”

Young Thug is one of the rappers who has previewed a remix to “Old Town Road”, which is expected to be released soon.
