Drake has just done a two-hour-long tell-all interview, in which he addressed his ongoing feud with Pusha T and Kanye West and the recent viral incident where he was booed off stage by a crowd expecting Frank Ocean.
Speaking about Pusha T, Drake said he had “no desire to mend anything with that person,” who revealed in a song last year that Drake had a son he had not yet gone public about. “I sleep well at night knowing I didn’t get out-barred… 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,” he said.
“I knew, kind of, for me, it was over at that point. It wasn’t even about battle rap.”
Drake went on to reveal that his feud with Pusha T stemmed from an ongoing disagreement with Kanye West.
“I think that [West] definitely recruited a guy [Pusha T] with a similar dislike for me no matter what he says in interviews,” Drake said, noting that West had tried numerous times to get in touch with him recently. “There’s something there that bothers him deeply and, yeah, I can’t fix it for him. It just is what it is. I could never ever, ever, ever turn my back on the things that I’ve said about him in a positive light…”
He continued: “Things have changed. 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.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Drake talked about being booed off the stage at Tyler, the Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw Festival where he surprised a crowed who were expecting Frank Ocean.
Saying that he could tell from backstage that the audience wasn’t going to be happy, he said he joked to someone, “How long you think it’s gonna take for them to boo me off stage?”
Drake continued, “I was a little confused. I was kind of sitting there, going like, ‘You guys know Frank’s not here, right? You may as well get over that… let’s rock, I’m the guy, I’m the replacement. I got a couple joints if you wanna hear them.’ In hindsight, I wish I would’ve said, ‘Yo guys, Frank…’ or just broke out into, ‘A tornado flew around…’”
