Well it’s about time. Rap softie Drizzy Drake finds himself on the cover of Billboard magazine. In a rather in-depth interview he discusses many things including new music and competition. He also shares his thoughts on that pesky Kendrick Lamar who offended pretty much everyone last month with his verse on Big Sean‘s “Control“.
“I didn’t really have anything to say about it,” Drake says of the verse, which has so far inspired responses from A$AP Rocky, Joey Bada$$, former Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson and too many others to count. “It just sounded like an ambitious thought to me. That’s all it was. I know good and well that Kendrick’s not murdering me, at all, in any platform. So when that day presents itself, I guess we can revisit the topic.”
Ooooooo, Kendrick you hear that he (kinda) said your mum- fight! So i think we can pretty much draw a line under this years most entertaining/sort of overblown rap topic this year. Drake thinks he’s the best, Kendrick thinks he the best, and my mate Dean from high school thinks he’s the best. So for everyone who has been offended by the track, try and remember competition IS Hip-Hop and if you don’t think you’re the best you should probably read a page full of your feelings at some poetry slam somewhere in the “hip” part of town. The full article can be read here.
Drake’s third studio album “Nothing Was The Same” will probably be the biggest Hip-Hop album this year, and will be released September 24th
