R&B singer Tank is blasting older hip hop heads who don't like Lil Yachty and Lil Uzi Vert. Today (May 19), he's decided to speak up on the two rappers' behalves. 

Since Yachty, Uzi and other similar artists began recording music that gained popularity, many older rap fans have expressed their concern about the way rap music is going. Newer artists have developed their own type of sound and it's been angering people who've growth up in the culture.

These people believe that hip hop is slowing dying because of the different lanes that these new rappers are taking and how vastly different their music sounds from original rap. Tank isn't one of these older rap fans and decided to let it be known on social media. He took to Instagram to defend Yachty, Uzi and all of the other new artists in today's hip hop world.

"I'm utterly disgusted!! I've never seen so many grown black men speak out against young black kids fighting to earn a living in this already difficult world!" Tank's post started. "Yes they're different but so was MJ and Prince! Y'all still celebrate those men highly with no thought to their differences. The crazy part is that these kids actually represent positivity."

I'm utterly disgusted!! I've never seen so many grown black men speak out against young black kids fighting to earn a living in this already difficult world! Yes they're different but so was MJ and Prince! Y'all still celebrate those men highly with no thought to their differences. The crazy part is that these kids actually represent positivity. They give a voice to those who feel like outcasts and may even have a hard time fitting in. These kids make being different ok and give hope to those who may feel like their life has no value. Maybe you'd feel better if these kids ran up on your car high and tooled up with extended clips and told you to "get down, lay down, or be found!" That would make more sense to you huh? You definitely don't want them to live their dreams and have fun entertaining the world! You definitely don't want them to feed their families and get they mama out the hood. You niggas kill me wanting your music to stay in the 80s and the 90s but gotta have the 2018 Benz! Everything changes! Everything evolves! It may not be for you but it is for the millions that stream it and show up to be entertained by it! Let these kids live!!.. #RnBMoney #RnBSoldiers #TheGeneral #savagecomingsoon #musicislife
