Drake Makes Questionable Response To Questionable Ludacris Beef
Posted by Newson 02/28/2012 at 9:17 AM
“What Drake/Ludacris beef?” you might ask. You might then not have read enough into the following lines from Luda’s “Bada Boom”:
Counterfeit rappers say I’m stealing their flows,
but I can’t steal what you never made up bitch
Y’all some duplicate rap cloning n—-s
I manufacture you h–s put on your makeup bitch
Let me explain, nothing’s been new since Big Daddy Kane
Flows will get recycled passed around to different names
The flow in question is hashtag rap–the sort Ludacris’s used just like everyone else, particularly on “My Chick Bad,” not particularly well–and the recycling also involved Big Sean, who responded with something rather like “um, OK?” Drake’s response is slightly less measured than that. Not that it isn’t still slight. It is so slight that we waffled for a few minutes as to whether it’s even worth posting, but if Sean got a response article, so does Drake. Now forget the fourth wall and read this Drake quote for the ages, from the Feb./March issue of Vibe:
“That’s a case of someone trying to use my marketing money to get things going again for themselves.
TEAM AFFILIATION: Nope. Not going down that path. We will note two things: Ludacris doesn’t need Drake’s “marketing money” nor did much to target it; hashtag rap is not great and certainly not worth defending at such un-length.
DRAMA RATING: 1/5. Come on. Surely there is better fodder for feuds out there.
