Over the summer Lil Yachty unapologetically told Billboard he couldn't name five songs by legends Tupac and Notorious B.I.G., now he's calling Biggy "overrated." The hip-hop up-and-comer is sure to catch some heat for this one, not that he seems to care. 

Appearing on Pitchfork's "Over/Under" series, Yachty and his friend The Good Perry gave different subjects from Tom Hanks to taxes to digital piracy rankings of over- and underrated. 

When the subject came to Notorious B.I.G., a smiling Yachty called him "overrated" with ease while Perry stammered over the question, saying he's at least heard Biggie Smalls' music in movies. 

"I grew up very sheltered," said Perry. "I can't say the same for him."

"Overrated," Yachty repeated, staring into the camera.
