Rap Radar delivered a surprise interview featuring Drake on Wednesday evening, and it certainly felt like Christmas.
Drizzy spoke candidly about his legacy, discography, and rap beefs in the two-hour interview. Last year we infamously saw him face defeat for the first time in his feud with Pusha-T and he’s never going to get over it.
“I have no desire to mend anything with that person,” Drizzy says, speaking on Pusha. “That situation just went where it went and there is no turning back, it’s not like those other situations that you mention.”
The Toronto rapper subtly expressed that Push went too far, but many spectators argued that there are no rules in a rap beef.
“I bowed out after realizing that the gap between us allowed him to drop a bomb on the world,” Drake says. “I sleep well at night knowing I didn’t get out-barred. I didn’t get, you know, doned off by some crazy song. It was just, you know, he told the world that the biggest artist at the time has a kid that he hasn’t told you about. I knew kind of, for me, it was over at that point. It wasn’t even about battle rap.”
“He’s just made an entire career off of it,” Drake continued. “Some people like his music, I personally don’t ’cause I don’t believe any of it.”
Of course co-host Elliott Wilson had to grill Drake about the Clipse microphone he purchased back in the day and he admitted that he still owns it.
“You just get to peek behind the curtain too,” Drake says. “When I was whatever, 16, thinking that he was the biggest dope dealer in the world serving bricks to all, every corner of America, yeah sure… I was… a fan obviously more so just a fan of Pharrell and the Neptunes. I always wanted to be signed to Star Trak and stuff like that, that was the wave. Now that I’m grown-up, and I know him and the truth, it’s just not as appealing.”
As far as his beef with Ye, The Boy acknowledges that he is still one of his all-time favorite artists besides JAY-Z and Lil Wayne, but he basically said it’s above him now.
“I’m not just some kid that’s a fan anymore. Now we have personal situations, and like I said, a lot of his issues with me, I can’t fix them for him.”
