Drake is making it known that Vybz Kartel is one of his favorite artists of all time.
It’s no secret that Drake is a huge fan of dancehall music and is friends with artists like Popcaan and Mavado. The Toronto rapper gets real candid with Nardwuar when asked about Vybz Kartel.
“Free up World Boss, Addi Mi Daddy,” Drizzy said. Kartel fans are known to frequently use the phrase “Addi Mi Daddy” as a way of saying Adidja Palmer is like my father.
“Vybz Kartel is one of my biggest inspirations like one of my favorite artists,” Drake added. “You want to talk about a guy that is coming out or somewhere or who is coming out of a place that has their own thing, their own culture and absolutely just taking over to becoming the one person to idolize.”
Drake also spoke about performing in Jamaica and almost getting arrested with Mavado for using profanity on stage.
“Yes I almost did get arrested because in Jamaica the stage shows the way the police monitor it is that you can’t incite the crowd so they don’t like you to swear so I was in Jamaica and I was excited,” the Young Money rapper said.
Drake also shout out to Mavado and Popcaan during the interview.
