Between Kodak Black, 21 Savage, Lil Yachty and anyone else who’s ever been hit the “mumble rapper” tag, you’re talking about millions and millions of fans.
With that in mind, it’s not surprising that when an online rapper by the name of Gee Mac took aim at the entire subgenre, he invoked the wrath of the whole damn internet in the comments section.
In a video posted to his Facebook, captioned “Rapper Murders All Mumble Rappers In Diss — RIP LIL BOAT,” Gee Mac comes for pretty much half of 2017’s most popular rappers, dropping bars like “This ain’t a sub diss, I’m talking to Savage/ Slowed it a bit down so he understands it/ Why in the fuck do you look like Ash Wednesday?/ How long you been fasting, how much do you weigh?”
So is the track hot? Well, it has picked up 58,000 views in just under a day, and it’s got more “Likes” and “Laughing” reacts than it does “Angry” ones, so that’s gotta be of some comfort to Gee Mac. Unfortunately, the comment section isn’t so kind (it never is).
One sharp-tongued commenter wrote, “Plot Twist. They all rap better than this guy.” Other critics were at least a little more constructive: “If he woulda came off harder shit woulda went waaay viral but dis nigga sounds like ah amature ??? try again bro ion fuck wit em niether but try again n have character n ya flow #2Basic”
A posted named Erik Foreman wrote “Why can’t I rate zero stars? Facebook really gotta watch this video so they see the need for a zero star rating. This kid is unadulterated ass cheeks … Lmfao @ saying hiphop is dead while killing it at the same time. Nothing more authentic than a clown dressing up in Halloween costumes for his music videos.”
As for all the hate he’s catching, Gee Mac doesn’t seem to mind, posting on Facebook: “27,000 Views already on Facebook ? much love to all the @lilyachty fans hating for blowing this up.”
