Lupe Fiasco also chimed in, giving Drizzy a little side-eye after the Toronto rapper said that his new project was based on the seasons in Toronto, while Lupe’s project Tetsuo & Youth is based on the seasons in general. Insert eye-roll emoji?
“VIEWS is based around the change of the seasons in our city. Winter to summer and then back to winter again,” Drake said on Beats 1 with Zane Lowe during the album premiere.
While a majority of his commentary on Twitter has since been deleted, Lupe posted a response saying, “Funny how he blew up after Lupe,” in regards to Drake talking about the inspiration of the album being season-related.
His shade is justified, as it comes by way of Drizzy’s “5 AM in Toronto” line: "I started a new race, it's funny if you think a n***a blew up after Lupe."
Always interesting when rappers get called out for style-biting. We’ll have to see if this time around its grows into a larger beef or not.
