Drake has been an unwilling target of rapper beef for the past few months. After dodging some jabs from veteran rhymer Common, and gamely responding with a little tough talk, Drizzy has also attracted the ire of some other rap artists as well. Future, Pusha T and Ludacris all have fired salvos in the direction of Drizzy of late, and he gives them each a few choice words.
In an upcoming VIBE interview, Drake elects to take the high road somewhat, addressing his fellow rap cohorts who have grown critical and dissatisfied with him. With unaffected cool, Drake sidesteps Future’s disappointment over the YMCMB not appearing in the video for the “Tony Montana” remix.
“I’ve got no issues with him,” said Drake of Future’s words. “I’m happy I got on the song.
Regarding Pusha T’s lines towards him, Drake takes it all in stride. “I’ve been really open about my love for the Clipse,” Drake says. “I don’t know, maybe that guy is bored.”
Drake had the most to say about Ludacris, who dedicated an entire song to attack both Drake and Big Sean after being accused of biting their rhyme styles. In his response, Drake even appeared to be clapping back at Luda.
“That’s a case of someone trying to use my marketing money to get things going again for themselves. That didn’t affect my day, my month, my year. I didn’t take any of that seriously,” said Drake.
Is Drizzy being a little easygoing with his responses or is he saving his bars up for another war of words?
