N.O.R.E. Claims Future Is Upset Drake Did Joint Album w / 21 Savage

 Future seemingly wants Drake to stick to his “no new friends” policy.

“Drink Champs” host N.O.R.E recently appeared as a guest on America’s popular morning radio show “The Breakfast Club” where he tapped into their rumor report. According to N.O.R.E., the streets of Miami are gossiping and claiming that Atlanta rapper Future is allegedly upset that  Drake did a joint album with 21 Savage, born Shéyaa Abraham-Joseph. Charlamagne tha God asked the rapper:

“So you heard that Future is upset with Drake ‘cause Drake did an album with 21 Savage ‘cause it makes their project seem less important?”

N.O.R.E., real name Victor James Santiago, Jr., replied:

“I would think so. You know what I mean? We never seen Jay-Z do another ‘Best Of Both Worlds.’ We seen ‘Watch The Throne,’ but that was [equal.]”

“The Breakfast Club” co-host DJ Envy chimed in and said:

“But I will say this, I like the fact that these younger artists and newer artists are doing records with other people and doing albums with other people, cause back then you guys would never cause y’all would have too many label conflicts.” 

DJ Envy, real name RaaShaun Casey, added:

“Could you imagine if you and Nas really did an album together? Could you imagine if you and you know, Fat Joe, and Terror Squad and Thugged Out did an album together back then?”

N.O.R.E. admitted:

“I think what we gotta do is big up Drake ‘cause Drake is, to me, is learning how important he is to the culture and he’s spreading it.”

Charlamagne tha God, born Lenard Larry McKelvey, seemingly agreed with N.O.R.E’s opinion and said:

“I think he knew that. I think he always knew that, that’s why he always does records with the up and coming people. ” 

N.O.R.E., 45, continued and explained how doing an album with Drake is a big deal. 

“More so, when you do a whole album with 21 Savage and with all due respect to 21 Savage, it’s like you’re putting 21 Savage on that level now. Like even though he probably was on that level but now you putting him on that level. You putting him on the level of Future. You know what I’m saying? Future is arguably one of the most influential artists ever.”


Later in the conversation, Charlamagne made it clear that he doesn’t believe the Miami-based rumor is true. 

“For the record, I don’t believe Future probably feels that way. I don’t think Future is that petty. I don’t think he’s upset that Drake did an album with 21.”

N.O.R.E. added:

“We getting too much money to be upset, period, but it’s a little discrepancy. That’s what I heard.”

As you may know, Canadian rapper Drake and Future, 39,  dropped their 11-track collaborative mixtape on September 20, 2015, entitled “What a Time to Be Alive.” The now-certified platinum project debuted at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 with 375,000 album-equivalent units. The joint mixtape became both rappers’ second project to chart at number one on the charts that year.

However, statistically, “Her Lossis seemingly doing better than Drake’s project with Future, real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn. Atlanta rapper 21 Savage and the OVO artist released their joint studio album “Her Loss” on November 4, 2022. The 16-track album debuted at No. 1 on the US Billboard 200 with 404,000 album-equivalent units.

Despite the success of the project, it wasn’t well-received by everyone. As previously reported, Megan Thee Stallion called out the “Nice For What” rapper in a series of tweets regarding his lyrics on the ninth track “Circo Loco.” In the song Drake, 36, seemingly claimed Megan Thee Stallion lied about being shot by Tory Lanez. During the song, Drake raps:

“This b*tch lie ‘bout getting shot but she still a stallion.”

He continues:

“Shorty say she graduated/she ain’t learn enough/play your album track one ‘kay, I heard enough.”

The song dropped before Tory Lanez, 30, was found guilty on Dec. 23 for his alleged actions. As of now, his sentencing is set for Feb. 28.

In a series of tweets Megan Thee Stallion, born Megan Pete, blasted Drake for the seemingly offensive lyrics. In part, she tweeted:

“I know I’m very popular but y’all gotta stop attaching weak *ss conspiracy theories in bars to my name lol N*gg*s nor h**s EVER address me or @ me WITH a fact or receipts. I AM CLOUT B*TCH keep s*ck*ng my p*ssy”
