Drake did an interview yesterday on OVO sound radio and he did not hold back anything, especially when asked about his feud with Meek Mill. Drake held an extensive interview on his OVO Sound radio show on Beats 1.
Recorded on Monday, February 13, the Canadian artist addressed a slew of topics, including his album Views, the first time he experienced racism, the Grammys, the story behind why Kanye West and Jay Z didn’t make it to the final version of “Pop Style,” his love of grime, and much more.
In a Q&A session with DJ radio personality DJ Semtex, Drizzy addressed having to deal with dropping the diss track back 2 back:
“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.”
•Academy pitched him to cancel his two shows, come to the Grammys, sit in the audience and basically lose
•Said the Recording Academy tried to pacify, or alienate him. Or because he’s a black rapper they don’t know what to do with him.
•He doesn’t want his Grammy’s because he doesn’t know why One Dance wasn’t nominated or why Hotline Bling was in rap categories.
•Said he’s proud of the collaboration he did with Quentin. He says he could name twenty people who are worse than him (having writers).
•Because Quentin Miller was managed by Don Cannon and Dj Drama they added to it and made the situation messy.
•He dragged Meek Meek Mill because of issues with Nicki created the narrative that he didn’t write his own music
•He was introduced to Quentin Miller through Boil Da and they ended up doing about 5 songs total
•He makes pop songs for a reason. He wants to be like Michael Jackson
•Doesn’t know why him and Khaled were the target of one of Kanye’s rants. Says they’re good people and he doesn’t respect
