Drake’s gripe with Kanye “Publicly sh*tting” on him during Saint Pablo tour rant.

On Feb 18 Drake sat down with DJ Semtex on OVO Sound Radio affirming his complete confusion regarding Kanye West’s on stage rant directed at the 30-year-old Canadian rapper.

“I went from working on a project with him to him sort of, like, publicly s–ting on me and DJ Khaled for being on the radio too much…” Drake admitted over the course of the interview. 

During a show last November, West took shots at Drake, stating that despite their friendship Mr OVO had “set up” their song “for free” in an attempt that the radio would play it on multiple occasions. Not long after West was hospitalised due to extreme exhaustion due to stress. Drake appears mildly moved by empathy signing off – I don’t respect it at all. Me and Khaled are both just, like, good people. I’m not really sure why we’re the target of your choice that you made that night. But again, I accept what you’re going through.”

Clyde Stubblefield, the drummer for James Brown who composed one of the most widely sampled drum breaks ever (Funky Drummer, 1970), died on Saturday aged 73. 

The musician had been suffering from kidney disease for a decade and had been hospitalised across a few days prior to his death. Stubblefield performed on several of Brown’s classics throughout the 60’s and 70’s as both a studio and performance drummer.

Rolling Stone Magazine confirmed the song has been sampled on well over one thousand tracks, most notably throughout the hip hop scene. Popular songs utilising the break include Public Enemy’s Fight the Power, Dr Dre’s Let Me Ride as well as Run DMC’s Run’s House.

Retired visual artist, aspiring actor and full-time mental health worker, I tend to find my most decent brain vacations are accessed on the daily through the power of music (as well as a cheeky craft beer). I began my writing endeavours for Australia’s premier online hip hop journal, Stimulate Your Soul, moving onto Melbourne Art’s Club, Froth Beer Magazine as well as my own reflective blog Breezus Lives. My dream job is writing professional jokes about poo and making more than $10 an hour for that specific task. If I’m not writing or eating, I am playing with two intellectually delayed dogs in Melbourne (Aus).
