On Saturday night (Feb. 18), Drake sat down for a lengthy interview with DJ Semtex on OVO Sound Radio. The rapper discussed a great many topics, including current projects, his beef with Meek Mill, and most pressingly, the allegations that Drake had copied the flow from a song by rapper XXXTENTACION, “Look At Me.”
He explained to Semtex in detail, saying: “I [listened to ‘Look At Me‘] and I’m like, okay, I can see where people could draw this comparison off the first two lines, whether it be cadence or the rhyme pattern or whatever,” Drake revealed. “It’s crazy that people think that after all this time, after all I’ve been through, that I’m the type of person…. to go and take that and make it my own. I’m not stupid, I’m not a sh*t person like that.” Listen to the full interview here.
It looks as though XXXTENTACION thinks otherwise. The Florida rapper, who is currently serving a jail term on six felony charges, took to Twitter early Sunday morning, writing “I’m not gonna Twitter rap with n*ggas for stealing my flow, I slap n*ggas don’t come to Florida.” He said that “its funny how the industry let this p*ssy n*gga sit at the top for so long, y’all suck kill yourselves, meh dun chat.”
XXXTENTACION went on to say that Drake’s career is “almost over,” and that he “better start investing money into real estate cause once it’s all over he really gonna see the fake love.” He added that “I’m not the first n*gga he bit, nor will I be the last.”
XXXTENTACION has since deleted the Tweets, but check out the screenshots below.
