Drake was not happy when a prominent radio host criticized his new music video for the song “God’s Plan”.
The video features the Canadian rapper giving away nearly $1 million of his own money to people in need.
Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg wasn’t too impressed with Drake’s acts of kindness, though.
The host questioned the way the rapper went about doing charity. “Is it a little bit cheap to use those emotions of, ‘Look at this person in need getting something good,’ and transfer those emotions onto yourself?” he asked. “I don’t know the last time I saw a four-minute montage of ‘Look at all the nice things I do.'”
Apparently Drake heard that criticism and did not take it lightly. Rosenberg said the 31-year-old angrily called him up on the phone Wednesday.
“I’ve never heard his Canadian accent that strongly. Drake yelled and he was very passionate,” Rosenberg said.
“I could hear in his voice that this was very clearly the most important thing that he’s ever done,” Rosenberg added. “He was clearly very affected by doing something so good for people. That’s ultimately very great for the culture. But, I still would have said the video is not for me.”
Clearly not everyone agrees with Rosenberg. The video for “God’s Plan” has racked up more than 54 million views since its release last week, and the song has been No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for four weeks.
