It seems like every other day 19 year old rapper Lil Yachty is making headlines for, shocker, not fully appreciating music he wasn't even alive for. Pitchfork's recent 'Under/ Over' feature with the Atlanta artist was the perfect set up for yet another question about the same topic.  This time around Yachty was asked if he thinks The Notorious B.I.G. is "underrated" or "overrated." He went overrated. You can't really blame him, either. He wasn't even alive when B.I.G. was alive, instead he grew up in Atlanta idolizing acts like Soulja Boy. Just two completely different time periods and set of influences.
