Lil Duval

Lil Duval returns with yet another hot take on the state Hip-Hop. This time he says the genre will have to evolve due to Afrobeats’ growing popularity.

On Sunday, 19th February 2023, the comedian tweeted: “Afrobeats might be the death of Hip-Hop as we know it.

Lil Duval received a lot of flack for his tweet. He later clarified that his earlier tweet wasn’t intended to be offensive, saying:

I wasn’t saying Hip-Hop is over I said ‘Hip-Hop as we know it’ meaning like evolved into something bigger. Meaning giving Afrobeats props. I don’t [know] how some took offense.

Duval’s comments arrive after afrobeats superstars Burna Boy, Rema and Tems headlined at the NBA All-Star Weekend in Utah.

Afrobeats has risen in popularity in the last decade. Described as the new pop the genre continues to steadily take over the US market. Personally, I believe both genres can co-exist and thrive. What do You think? Do you agree with Duval? Does Afrobeats spell the death of Hip-hop?
