Drake has wrapped up a seven-day residency in London but he is not leaving the city without a little adversity.
The Canadian rapper dropped by BBC 1Xtra radio following his last O2 Arena date of his “Assassination Vacation” tour. Drake spoke to radio host Tiffany Calver about some disparaging remarks made by U.K. artist Wiley.
Wiley, who is often labelled as the “godfather” of the Grime music genre, recently called Drake a “culture vulture.” Grime is a type of electronic dance music with hip-hop and dancehall influences. Wiley’s beef stems from Drizzy stopping by various U.K. artists’ shows and bringing them out on his tour.
“It is what it is,” Drake said. “I see a lot and I’ll never understand how supporting somebody’s song or even going a step further and giving somebody a song or linking up… I’ll never understand how that’s not viewed as something admirable but I guess people have their own outlook on it.
“I just had to talk about it because it’s bothering me,” he continued. “I didn’t like that. It’s Wiley that said that. I’ll just say his name because that was some goofy s**t. But yeah, I just didn’t like that. I was like, ‘Dude what are you talking about? They have tunes that are ringing off. Anybody that’s on now, what are you guys talking about?’”
Wiley responded to Drake’s comments on Twitter, but the Canadian rapper has yet to fire back.
Drake wraps up the “Assassination Vacation” European tour with three dates in Antwerp, Belgium, and three dates in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
