Money Making Mike was inspired by J. Cole, a hip-hop artist. J. Cole said “Especially the amateur eight week rappers. Lil’ whatever—just another short bus rapper. Fake drug dealers turn tour bus trappers” and many theorized that he was taking shots at Lil Uzi Vert or Lil Yachty.
“Oh most definitely J. Cole spit nothing but the truth. These ‘Lil’ rappers are getting all the attention in the music industry but be rapping about nothing. Someone had to say something and Cole destroyed them. The only “Lil” rapper I think is good is ‘Lil Bibby” said Money Making Mike.
