He Is Finally Speak Out: Drake Addresses Future, Pusha T & Ludacris’ Subliminal Disses

If you have been following Hip-Hop music, I’m sure you heard  the subliminal diss that Future, Pusha T and Ludacris threw at Drake. I guess Drizzy is now fed up with other rappers dissing him because in the February/March issue of VIBE, he addressed his nemeses. Below are some excerpts:

“DRAKE INVADED HIP-HOP AS A HUMBLE “EMO” RAP-SINGER FROM CANADA WITH THE USUAL DESIGNS ON “THE MONEY, THE CARS AND THE CLOTHES.” BUT WHILE YOU TOOK HIS HEARTACHE FOR NO-HEART, DRAKE CHANGED HIS GAME FACE AND FLEXED HIS BAD BOY MUSCLE. FROM THIS POINT ON, THERE IS NO MORE MR. NICE GUY,” wrote Lola Ogunnaike.

“I’ve got no issues with him,” he says of Future, who was upset that Drake didn’t appear in his video, “Tony Montana.” “I’m happy I got on the song.” Pusha T, who once cryptically rhymed that, “the swag doesn’t match the sweaters,” gets off easy, too. “I’ve been really open about my love for the Clipse,” he says. “I don’t know, maybe that guy is bored.” Ludacris, who was accused of stealing Big Sean and Drake’s hashtag flow, also receives a halfhearted smack down, “That’s a case of someone trying to use my marketing money to get things going again for themselves. That didn’t affect my day, my month, my year. I didn’t take any of that seriously.”

I have some records that are just plain fun, like you just want to party, jump around and go crazy to,” said Rose. She then added, “I would really, really love to do a song with Pitbull and LMFAO. They’re probably like my two favorites. I’ve always loved Timbaland as well.”
