Especially after the success of Take Care, Drake has been the target of plenty of other rappers' lyrical attacks. Whether it's the direct shots fired by Common or the subliminals from Pusha T, the jabs just keep on coming. In this month's issue of VIBE, Drake responds to it all in a calm, civil, and calculated kind of way.
“I’ve got no issues with him,” he says of Future, who was upset that Drake didn’t appear in his video, “Tony Montana.” “I’m happy I got on the song.” Pusha T, who once cryptically rhymed that, “the swag doesn’t match the sweaters,” gets off easy, too. “I’ve been really open about my love for the Clipse,” he says. “I don’t know, maybe that guy is bored.” Ludacris, who was accused of stealing Big Sean and Drake’s hashtag flow, also receives a halfhearted smack down, “That’s a case of someone trying to use my marketing money to get things going again for themselves. That didn’t affect my day, my month, my year. I didn’t take any of that seriously.”
