Big Gipp Says Future Has a Point About Wanting Credit From Young Rappers

EXCLUSIVE

Future wants some respect put on his name for giving young rappers a style to run with and a way to make a living, and he's got a point ... so says a fellow Atlanta rap legend.

We got Big Gipp -- who's part of Goodie Mob, Dungeon Family and other OG rap groups out of ATL -- and he says Future's recent Twitter rant calling on up-and-coming MCs to thank him for pioneering their styles and ad libs is more than just warranted ... it's overdue.

Gipp does mention a few rap acts by name -- calling out Migos and Lil Baby -- but it's unclear who exactly Future was referring to during his extended gripe.

One thing's for sure though ... Gipp thinks Future is right up there with Gucci Mane (often credited with creating trap music) and should be given the same type of reverence.
