Drake was interviewed by Rap Radar’s Elliot Wilson on Friday and he had a lot to say. He talked about how Rick Ross is being made an example and this is a great lesson for rappers in hip hop, how he loves saying no to deals because it’s keeps his brand more exclusive, how he doesn’t have beef with The Weekend, they are just at two different places in their lives, and of course all of the Chris Brown drama. Here’s what he had to say:
“For any media outlet that listens to this interview, don’t ask me shit about that man when I come up there. Leave that man alone and stop preying on his insecurities man. His insecurities are the fact that I make better music than him, that I’m more popping than him, and that at one point in life, the woman that he loves fell into my lap and I did what a real nigga would do and treated her with respect. So she’s not out there talking down on me. All of those things combined creates a nigga that comes up to your radio station and is just gonna do dumb shit. But it shouldn’t be about tearing that man down, it shouldn’t be about wanting to see me and him tear each other down. We have an issue and it’s either gonna drag out, or maybe in ten years we’ll laugh about it over drinks, but let us solve that shit. It’s not me and Kendrick, it’s not me and Hov, you’re not gonna get anything out of it. I don’t wanna hear that man rap, you know what I’m saying? Nobody wants to hear me rap against him, you’re not even going to get anything out of it. I just urge media to leave that shit alone. What do people wanna see from it? You don’t wanna see two black men tearing each other down. I understand when it’s entertaining, when you feel that you might get some music out of it, but at the end of the day, nothing good can come of that situation, just leave that shit alone. That’s part of the reason why I don’t go up to radio. Sit up there and talk, talk, talk, I don’t wanna talk. People talk themselves into a mess. Playing my beat when he comes up there and try to get him to rap, c’mon man! That shit is like terrible. I feel for him too. Every interview he does, they talk about me. It is what it is. I’m focused on this album and everything else that’s going on. I’m not thinking about that man…or that girl.”
Drake, PREACH! Oh yea…. he should be dropping 2 more new singles from his next album! What do you guys think about this whole situation?
