Aubrey Drake Graham has bemoaned his messy feud with fellow rapper Meek Mill, saying such unnecessary controversies don’t make him proud.
The Canadian rapper who has links with Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna, also called out Kanye West for saying his music is hyped.
Speaking on Beats 1 OVO Sound Radio, Drake admits he was bemused by Yeezy’s biased comment which argued that his songs are overplayed by radio stations.
Drizzy, opened up to DJ Semtex during a recent interview where he talked about his relationships with other musicians, painfully declaring loss of interest in the alleged 2-year misunderstanding with Mill, a Philadelphia-born rapper who is a relationship with female rapper Nicki Minaj.
The prolonged war of words with Mill started in 2015 after a claim that the “Views” rapper doesn’t write his own lyrics.
“It’s not something that I’m proud of because it took just as much of an emotional toll on me — maybe not as much as it did on him… but you always gotta hear about it,” Drake said.
“Just seeing people get so riled up on negativity, it didn’t feel great,” he continued.
Although the 30-year-old has released “Charged Up” and “Back to Back” in response to the unfair allegation from Mill, their lyrical war has lingered for two years now. And Kanye West’s latest argument that DJ Khaled and Drake seem to be favored by radio stations, has sparked a tensed atmosphere.
The “Life of Pablo” rapper says other musicians like Frank Ocean deserves some time on air, too.
Meanwhile, Rihanna’s ex refused to diss Yeezy on radio for the sake of a long time relationship and the respect he has for him.
In his words: “I’m not really sure what he’s referring to half the time because, in the same breath, I went from working on a project with him to him sort of, like, publicly s–ting on me and DJ Khaled for being on the radio too much.
“If that’s what it is, I don’t even really understand the point you’re trying to make, but whatever it is that you’re going through, I accept it. I don’t respect it at all,” Drake continued.
“Me and Khaled are both just, like, good people. I’m not really sure why we’re the target of your choice that you made that night. But again, I accept what you’re going through.”
Drake and his business partner Noah Shebib are co-owners of OVO Sound music label where the former works as a producer.
He also has his own music channel on Beats 1 as well as a clothing line.
