Vince Staples Says The ’90s Get Too Much Credit — ‘90s Lovers Are Pissed

Meanwhile, some fans are backing him up.

A recent Vince Staples interview has caused a huge uproar and divided the internet, with a ton of hip-hop fans getting super pissed at him. It all started with this brief quote:

"The ‘90s get a lot of credit,” Vince, who was born in 1993, told Time magazine. "I don’t really know why. Biggie and Tupac, those are the staples of the ‘90s. That’s why they get the golden era credit. There’s not a 50 Cent in the ‘90s. They don’t even have a Kanye.”

He even had this priceless look on his face when he said it:



Damn, that sent shockwaves through the internet. Fans and fellow rappers immediately got upset, and of course that anger landed on Twitter, where "Vince Staples" became a trending topic. But that ain't it -- here are the four kinds of responses Vince has been getting after his controversial comments.

'90s Fans Are Outraged

While that tweet is pretty mellow, there are a ton more out there. Some are calling him an idiot. Others are calling him stupid. Twitter can be super mean, man.

Some Rappers Are Pissed

Noreaga took issue with Vince's statements, which resulted in a heated back-and-forth. The two exchanged a few tweets before Staples said he could no longer hear Nore's "Oye Mi Canto" because the song's apparently been ruined for him now. Noreaga replied by saying the track's video has over 27 million views. He also added emoji smileys and said, "It's love yung homey."

Another MC, R.A. The Rugged Man, also commented on the situation, saying, "Bring back the 1980s." Oh, man... now we've got three decades to argue about?

Not all rappers are mad about Staples' statements. Tyler, The Creator, for example, also got in on the conversation, saying he agrees with Vince because many rap albums from the '90s just don't do anything for him.

And Some Fans Are Backing Him, Too

While there's plenty of outrage in the Twittersphere, there are also fans who agree with Vince. They're saying he has a point, that he's right and that the '90s are indeed overrated.

Clearly, there are a lot of varying opinions on the issue -- and as with any hip-hop debate, that's part of the fun. Where do you stand? Watch Vince's interview with Time below and sound off in the comments.
