Drake Says Vybz Kartel Is His Favorite Artist, Talks Popcaan & Mavado “Addi Mi Daddy”

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.

Drake Wanted To Collaborate With Vybz Kartel On ‘Views From The 6’

“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.


  1. Until some solid SOLID EVIDENCE shows up, man free addi! And we say free addi because of that! ” no solid evidence prooving them of murder”! Just a discussion of missing shoe’s/(guns) !

  2. Stop lying, the man did not say that Kartel was/is his favorite artiste. SMDH… What you should be talking about is Drake actually stating that Popcaan is featured on the “Views” album–when we all know that is not the case…

    • Actually, his vocals are featured on Too Good with Rihanna which samples “Love Yuh Bad.”

      • Okay, I stand corrected. What I am also noticing is that the the radio DJs are actually playing the Controlla single with Popcaan as opposed to the Album version.

  3. so now drake wants the mudera let go?

    • Smh there is no body to even say that their was a murder! No hard proof that kartel and the rest of them did anything!
