TDE Punch has weighed in on the ongoing debate as to whether there should be an age limit to releasing hip-hop music. Punch argued that artists get wiser the older they become on Twitter, Tuesday.
"I just read a post about an age limit in hip hop music. Is this still a thing? I've always thought the older you get (for some) the wiser you become. Therefore the information you speak would be better," he said. "Of course this apply to those sharp and keep updating the craft."

Punch On The Age Limit Debate
Many users debated the topic in the replies to Punch's post. One wrote: "The limit increases as rappers age, some of the best in the world are in their 50's and make music the world relates to. It's not just a young mans game anymore, and older artists who have something to say should try to reach that audience would has aged with them." Punch responded: "I 100% agree with this. We go as far as the oldest one with the most skills."
Gillie Da Kid initially sparked the debate during an episode of the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast, over the weekend. He argued that rappers who aren't hitting it big by a certain age need to give up. "Fucking right there's an age limit to rap... If you ain't poppin' by a certain age, let that shit go," Gillie said on the show. "Motherfuckas be like all the time, 'Yo Gil, your platform crazy this the perfect time drop something now.' Shut the fuck up, man. Fuck is you talking about? Do I look like a n***a that's holding onto yesterday, n***a? Or do I look like a n***a that's elevating? And escalating, n***a. And glowing and growing. What the fuck is wrong with you?"
