Drake’s been hella salty as of late. It all started when he called out Macklemore for his post-Grammy texts to Kendrick Lamar, calling them “wack as fuck”. He then criticized Rolling Stone Magazine for taking him off of the magazine’s cover, in favor of a picture of the recently deceased Phillip Seymour Hoffman. And now, he’s calling out both Jay Z and Kanye West for some of their recent work. He said that Jay Z “can’t drop bars these days without at least four art references”, and that Kanye’s recent work has been subpar, poking fun at Kanye’s “Swaghili” line from I’m In It, saying “even Fabolous wouldn’t say some shit like that.”
Why is Drake salty about the Macklemore texts? He’s mad that Macklemore didn’t also text him, after he won Rap Album of the Year. Let’s all be honest: Kendrick deserved the award way more than any of the other nominees, and Macklemore agreed. I agree, Drizzy’s right. Those texts were wack as fuck. Macklemore won the award, he shouldn’t be apologizing for it. He should be proud of his work, no matter how good he felt that GKMC was. But that’s not the reason Drizzy is salty. He’s salty because he didn’t get a text.
When Drake found out his Rolling Stone cover was axed in favor of a picture of Phillip Seymour Hoffman, he took his saltiness to Twitter, saying: "They…took my cover from me last minute and ran the issue… I’m disgusted with that. RIP to Phillip Seymour Hoffman. All respect due. But the press is evil."
Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s death is a bigger story to cover than Drake. Drake realized that (or his PR team did), as he later apologized for what he said.
Now, this has got to be the saltiest part of these recent events: Drake calling out both Hov and Yeezy. Now, Drizzy’s spot on with these observations, but you can’t say that about the two biggest rappers right now (other than Kendrick). Yes, Jay has
four 7,000,000 art references in each song, but that’s his thing. And calling out Kanye’s swaghili line? Saying Fabolous could’ve done that? Fabolous? He hit Yeezy with that disrespect.
I think Drake is just making drama, because he was the rapper of the past few years, and he’s really not anymore. New releases by Kanye and Jay Z, and the emergence of Kendrick Lamar have overshadowed anything Drake’s been doing.
I just miss Heartbreak Drake, I really hope Aubrey gets off his worst behavior.
