With Kendrick Lamar riling up the hip hop community with his verse on Big Sean’s “Control”, many have wondered when certain emcees were going to respond, particularly in regards to Drake.
Drizzy’s “Nothing Was the Same”campaign landed him on the cover of this month’s Billboard magazine where the OVO artist commented on being called out, finding happiness and the forthcoming album that has every on edge waiting for its release.
“Me and ’Ye just fell into this thing where we hadn’t actually talked to each other in so long that all this stuff got built up. Sometimes you just have to find the opportunity to tell someone that you really like and respect them. After that, everything can move forward.” Though they haven’t worked together since his first album in 2010, Drake says he’s looking forward to getting in the studio with West sooner rather than later. “Hopefully we give the world what they want, because I know they want it,” he says. “I know me and ’Ye could do some crazy shit together.”
Drake’s thoughts on Kendrick Lamar’s verse on Big Sean’s “Control”:
“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.”
Yasssss Drake! We love a man with confidence, and we’re loving this new competitive edge to hip hop. Hip Hop is Alive!
