In a video uploaded to social media, which was then re-shared by DJ Akademiks, XXXTENTACION stressed that if Drake was more original with his tunes he’d be willing to give the rapper kudos.
“If he can do a whole fuckin’ album, right? Or at least two to three fuckin’ songs, originally,” X said. “That does not sound like anybody else’s cadence. Or does not have a fuckin’ sample. And just sounds like him originally. He’ll get my kudos. I’ll run around the street butt-ass-naked. I’ll tattoo Drake’s name on my ass cheek.
“If he can be original for even two seconds,” he added. “Or out-rap me for two seconds. Or if he can go on stage and sing a cappella. Sing any of his songs a cappella with no autotune. And record a song with no autotune. Then maybe, just maybe, I’ll shut the fuck up. But until then, guns blazing. And it’s not gonna stop cause I got a very, very, very strong fanbase.”
XXX’s video came around the same time a IG fan page for the teen rapper (with 354,000 followers) uploaded a photoshopped image of the Florida rapper holding a toddler Drake in his lap. Drake’s mother, who the rapper has recently expressed an affinity for, is also pictured in the throwback photo.
The photoshopped image now currently serves as the profile photo for the rapper’s Twitter account.
Despite his frequent critiques of Drake, a recent tweet pulled back the curtain a bit on his shenanigans.
After a Twitter user stated that “XXXTENTACION only starting stuff with Drake so he can get publicity to his name,” X responded “truth! and it’s working too :-)”
