Drake Responds To Ludacris Diss (November 21, 2011)

After Luda's diss record “Badaboom” stirred up controversy about Drake and Big Sean popularizing what is now known as the “hashtag flow," Drake responded with a backhanded tweet replying to Big Sean's congratulations.

Drake's tweet to Big Sean read, “You awlready know. I wish they'd just let young niggas live...respect always.” The tweet seemed to be a reference to Ludacris's recent attempt to put the two young rappers in their place—and shed light on the shoving match going on between hip-hop's new and old guards.
