The image was stitched beside a photo of Nas, and posted by Waka Flocka to show his example of how today's hip-hop is appearing to stray from the rugged look of prototypical fashion from 90's hip-hop. Waka argues that an artist like Lil Uzi ought to be considered a rock star and not a rap star. He even named some of the current crop of rappers [Kendrick, Cole, Meek] who, to his determination, bear the standard.
Somewhere along the line, Waka's message was apparently lost in translation and what's followed has been a conversation on masculinity in the genre, and among black men in general. There are no reports on whether Young Thug's fiance Jerrika Karlae was present to enjoy the show from backstage, but there were a good 15,000 + male and female fans rocking along as Thug's $9,000 Spring 2017 Chanel bag swung from his shoulder.
