"It's a little bit of a true story behind that."
Above is Ludacris referring to Drake's "How Bout Now," specifically, to the following line: "I had no money left from acting, I was focused on the music. I used to always try and burn you CDs of my new shit. You'd be like 'Who's this?' I'd be like 'Me, girl'/You'd be like 'Oh word, true shit?'/Then ask if we could listen to Ludacris."
"His girl at the time with all due respect was probably doing a little bit more than that," explains Chris, as in, more than just listening to his music.
Drake and Ludacris had their own fairly innocuous beef back in 2011, but it seems to be all but cleared up. In private, Drake apologized to Ludacris by way of calling him "god body." So really, the "How Bout Now" line was less a veiled jab at Ludacris and more a moment of openness about what it feels like to lose your girl to someone who sold 20 million CDs. "People can respect this man for being very honest on record," says Ludacris, who didn't know he was dealing with Drake's girl at the time. Another Drake line, "That's cold, ice cold, girl you ain't have to do him like that" comes to mind.
