Drake: Kanye Publicly Sh*tted On Me
In a new interview, Drake is opens up about the jabs that Kanye West made about him last year. As previously reported, last year Kanye criticized Drizzy & DJ Khaled during his ‘Saint Pablo Tour’, saying that they both were ‘overplayed’ on the radio. Drake responded to Ye’s saying,
I think everybody has their own little things going on, I’m not really sure what he’s referring to half the time, as in the same breath, I went from being like working on a project with him, to him sort of publicly sh*tting on me and DJ Khaled for being on the radio too much.
But yeah I’m not really sure, everybody’s got their own thing going on. Again me when I hear that, I just distance myself from it you know, alright if that’s what it is I don’t really even understand the point you’re trying to make but whatever it is that you’re going through, I accept it, I don’t respect it at all. You know cuz I feel like me and Khaled are just good people, I’m not sure why we’re the target of your choice that you made that night. Whatever it is that you’re going through, I accept it, I don’t respect it at all.
Drake also opened up about his feud with Meek Mill, which reportedly started when Meek claimed Drake used a ghostwriter. He explained,
My mind was going a thousand miles a minute, I didn’t know who was going to be on a diss track or what he had ready. I thought this was three months in the making. When I dropped ‘Charged Up,’ just to kinda see what the preparation level was, I saw—’oh wow you’re not ready.‘
Explaining his own diss track, he says:
I respect revenge when it’s warranted. It’s not something that I’m proud of because it took just as much of an emotional toll on me—maybe not as much as it did on him—but you always gotta hear about it… and just seeing people get so riled up on negativity, it doesn’t feel great.
It was just embarrassing to witness, you know? If he had revealed some huge thing, you know, you would have heard a lot more people, peers of mine chime in. You can ask Meek if he thinks it was worth it and I’ll bet he tells you no.
Drake also criticizes the Grammy Awards, saying that he doesn’t want the two he’s received.
Even though ‘Hotline Bling‘ is not a rap song, the only category they can manage to fit me in is a rap category. Maybe because I’ve rapped in the past or because I’m black, I can’t figure out why; I won two awards —but I don’t even want them, because it just feels weird for some reason.
