Benzino Believes Lil Baby Is This Era’s Tupac: ‘Trust Me I Know’

Benzino is adding to the discourse surrounding “this generation’s Tupac,” and his entry is none other than Lil Baby!

Benzino On Lil Baby: “He’s This Generation’s Pac”

Coi Leray‘s father made the proclamation via Twitter on Thursday morning.

He started off by declaring Lil Baby “the most influential & important” artist at the moment. Benzino also said that, like Tupac Shakur, Lil Baby’s music can make a difference in the culture.

“He like PAC’s influence can help turn around young black men to elevate their lives from the streets to a better life. He’s special trust me I know..”

The next tweet further expanded upon this comparison, with Benzino sharing that — like Pac — Lil Baby “talks that street talk but he also raps about positive elevation & change.”

Because of this, Benzino sees Lil Baby as the Tupac of the modern era.

He wrapped up his comments about the artist by adding, “This generation needs more Lil Baby’s.”

Who’s Worthy Of The Title: Lil Baby Or NBA YoungBoy?

In addition to Lil Baby, NBA YoungBoy — aka YoungBoy Never Broke Again — has also garnered comparisons to the “All About U” rapper.

As The Shade Room previously reported, The Game made this proclamation during an interview with Montreality. Notably, he also said that Lil Baby and Lil Durk would be the Jay-Z and Nas of this generation.

Is DaBaby This Generation’s Tupac?

We should also note that Fat Joe shared his own thoughts on the subject and said DaBaby is the Tupac of 2021.

Fat Joe made this declaration during an interview on Rap City 2021, which aired just before the 2021 BET Hip Hop Awards. To be fair, though, Fat Joe was simply going along with a game, though his answer caught some backlash.

He went on to explain his answer by saying, “DaBaby a real one. A certified real one!”

“Whether you like him or you don’t like him or whatever, I believe he lives what he raps. And that’s very much like Tupac.”

What do you think about these stars comparing Lil Baby, NBA YoungBoy, and DaBaby to Tupac? Also, who do you think is most worthy of this title?
