There’s No Beef: Drake Speaks On Wayne’s Jay-Z Diss & Pusha T Jab
This evening,YMCMB rapper Drake stopped by New York’s DJ Funkmaster Flex’s Hot 97 radio show to premiere his new track “Make Me Proud” Ft. Nicki Minaj. While on air, Funk Flex asked Drizzy about Lil Wayne’s Jay-Z diss track, “It’s Good.”
“I really just did my verse over the beat man,” he said about the track. “I’m not gonna say I didn’t hear the song before it came out. Wayne recently said in an article that ‘I can never feel like I created a monster in Drake because I’m his boss.’ And in every regard that’s a respectable comment. I’m a soldier for Wayne, he put me here, So I just really did what I had to do, which was deliver a verse on a beat and what he does with the song after that is completely up to him.”
“I think that you know, it’s silly to say well the initial jab wasn’t a jab,” Drizzy said about Jay-Z’s line about Baby on “H*A*M.” “It’s silly to say that that initial comment wasn’t completely directed at that situation and I think that Wayne who often is never afraid to step up to the plate did what he did back. And I think that’s what hip-hop is about. And I got the utmost respect for Jay, I mean I’m not really involved in that situation. He’s knows he’s been a great mentor in my career and of course Wayne is a brother to me so I feel pretty great man,” added Drake
As far as Pusha T subliminal directed toward Drizzy on “Don’t Fuck With Me,” Drake said he wasn’t offended.
“I listened to it and I just couldn’t pick it out,” he said referring to the believed diss. “I couldn’t pick out where I was supposed to be offended.”
“First of all I never really had any interaction with Pusha T so for him to diss me would be purely issues that he’s having within himself,” he added. “We’ve met but we’ve been just always codial with each other. I’m a fan of the Clipse. I say it in interviews so I never really had an issue with him but you know it’s a frustrating time for a lot of people right now, I get it, so if it was directed at me just make it a lil’ more direct next time. You know, I’m up for whatever man. I didn’t take offense to it though.”
