Uzi went to Twitter heading into the weekend and praised Ab’s lyrical skills.
This week, rap veteran Fong Sai U dropped a diss record aimed at Uzi for disrespecting hip-hop pioneer DJ Premier.

“I made the record because the disrespect is getting out of hand,” Fong told SOHH. “Especially when it’s people that inspired people around the world to do music. You don’t have to like them, h*ll some of them ain’t dope, but it’s the respect level. Enough’s enough.” (SOHH)
A few days ago, Ab-Soul allegedly fired a shot at Uzi Vert on social media.
Some media outlets believe Ab’s remarks stemmed from Uzi Vert not rhyming over a Premo instrumental.
Soul-O is referencing an interview Uzi did with Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning (included below) in which the “Money Longer” rapper refused to freestyle over the beat for Gang Starr’s “Mass Appeal.” “Oh he making me rap on that?” Uzi says when Ebro mentions the track. “I’m too young, I’m not into that.” Later on, when the discussion gets back to freestyling, Uzi says, “I’m telling you right now if you pull up one of them old beats I’m not rapping on it.” (XXL Mag)
