Drake has finally opened up on how he feels about Kanye West and Meek Mill, Complex is reporting.
Yesterday, in a new episode of his OVO Radio show, the 6 god spoke with DJ Semtex on how surprised he was when Kanye West attacked him during one of Kanye’s onstage rants on one of his “Saint Pablo” tour stops.
“I went from working on a project with [Kanye] to him shitting on me and Khaled for being on the radio too much,” Drake says.
He added that he understands Kanye’s condition but still doesn’t understand why Kanye, whom he had worked with on his VIEWS album, would attack him.
Here’s what Drake said of Kanye West, according to Hop New Hip Hop:
“I think everybody has their own little things going on, I’m not really sure what he’s referring to half the time, cos in the same breath, I went from being… like working on a project with him, to him sorta publicly shitting on me and DJ Khaled for being on the radio too much. But yeah I’m not really sure, everybody’s got their own thing going on. Again me when I hear that, I just distance myself from it you know, alright if that’s what it is I don’t really even 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. You know cos I feel like me and Khaled are just good people, I’m not sure why we’re the target of your choice that you made that night.”
Drake also addressed his epic beef with Meek Mill which dragged for over a year, saying that Meek’s insistence on a hip-hop feud was “terrible” and “impulsive,” and that the Philly rapper was going “a thousand miles a minute.”
He went on to talk about dragging Meek Mill in diss tracks, plus Meek’s weak responses:
“I didn’t know who was going to be on a diss track or what he had ready. I thought this was three months in the making. When I dropped ‘Charged Up,’ just to kinda see what the preparation level was, I realized—oh wow you’re not ready.
I respect revenge when it’s warranted. 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… and just seeing people get so riled up on negativity, it doesn’t feel great… It was just embarrassing to witness, you know? If he had revealed some huge thing, you know, you woulda heard a lot more people, peers of mine chime in.”
So, are we expecting a Kanye or Meek clapback soon?
