Rapper Fat Joe incurred the wrath of Hip Hop fans after sharing his sentiments on today's music world while comparing rapper Drake to the late hip-hop icon Michael Jackson.

Rapper Fat Joe recently joined fellow rap artist Rick Ross in a candid Instagram Live session where they dished their opinions on music.

At a point, Fat Joe talked about the mainstream rapper, Drake, and his milestone hip-hop achievements. Fat Joe concluded by referring to Drake as the "Michael Jackson of this time."

Within hours, the "Money Showers" crooner caught the attention of internet users and hip-hop fans who disapproved of his sentiment. On Twitter, fans of the late Michael Jackson clamped down on Fat Joe's notion in a series of tweets.

One Twitter user listed off some top music artists to emphasize her point that none was like Jackson. A second fan agreed with Fat Joe to an extent that Drake was one of the most successful hip-hop stars.

However, the fan made it known that the "God's Plan" singer was not in Jackson's "league." More tweets joined in the interaction as they strongly opposed Fat Joe's opinion while buttressing their points with hip-hop facts.

It is safe to say that Drake is unarguably one of hip-hop's most successful artists. He started his career by joining Lil Wayne's Cash Money Records where he showed expertise for over a decade. After leaving to launch OVO, his outstanding talent continued to blow the minds of hip-hop fans.

Last year, Drake made news headlines during his European tour where he skipped his Micheal Jackson sample song, "Don't Matter." Many fans shared their speculations as to why Drake omitted "Don't Matter," which was a part of his 2018 album, "Scorpion."

The award-winning rapper made no comments on the development. However, the omission happened weeks after HBO released the "Leaving Neverland" documentary that revolved around Jackson's home and the sexual assault allegations levied against him.

The "In My Feelings" rapper recently raised fans' curiosity after alluding to Jackson's alleged molestation crime which he committed in the confined walls of his lavish estate, Neverland.

The story follows that two kids, Wade Robson and James Safechuck, now grown, came out with claims that they were molested by the "Thriller" singer. Jackson's family members, however, denied the allegations.

Updates on Drake show that he is gearing up for a new body of work that will follow his last album, "Scorpion." There are also reports of him and music star, Bruno Mars having a collaboration. His rumored song with Mars will be the first on his upcoming album, although the release date is yet to be announced.
