The Toronto hitmaker previewed a new single in a club last night in Europe and some hip hop fans are saying it sound a bit too much lil Lil Uzi Vert and another rapper name XXXTentacion. Some fans are even already making memes making fun of Drake.
“Drake you is a culture vulture stealing asss ni*** taking Uzi style,” one fan wrote. This would not be the first time that Drizzy is being accused of taking another rapper’s material or taking a certain style of rap. D.R.A.M. went after him last year for taking jacking his single for “Hotline Bling.” Not to mention the controversy around him using a ghost writer.
The 6 God has not responded to the accusations but it seems like this new trap song will be on his new album More Life. When that project drops we will get a better feel of the song and see what the big brouhaha is about. In the meantime, Drake is filling out arenas all across Europe for his Boy Meets World tour now underway.
Who is XXXTentacion?
From what we know, XXXTentacion is a 19-year-old rapper who is currently locked up in a Broward County jail facing life for six felony charges across two different jurisdictions. He did an interview with XXL mag where he not only spoke about wanting to be the greatest artist ever, but also on the Drake situation. His song “Look At Me” is getting a lot of buzz and is the same single that Drake is accused of biting.
“I have the utmost respect for Drake as an artist,” XXXTentacion said. He also said that he is aware of what Drake does but if he did in fact take his flow then at the very least reached out and help him out as a rising artist.
“If Drake is gonna take the flow, and I don’t know if he legitimately did, but if that is the situation, at least reach out to a ni**a, help a ni**a out in this situation, and then if you want to run off with the flow, then run off with the flow,” he added.
