As Drake continues to roll out his upcoming album, Buffalo artist Westside Gunn wants to clear up any confusion about who gets remembered for what.
In an Instagram post he uploaded recently, Gunn counts the “coincidences” between Drake’s upcoming album and himself. Drake’s album is titled Scorpion (Drake’s astrological sign is Scorpio) and Gunn’s company logo is a scorpion. Drake was also seen wearing a Razor Ramon (real name: Scott Hall) T-shirt. Gunn has used a reference to Hall as a nickname and for an EP title.
Gunn also addressed other issues — like claiming that him being from Buffalo, and not NYC, has held him back as far as media coverage. WSG also believes Migos has recently helped popularize wrestling for a lot of Hip Hop fans (see Offset’s “Ric Flair Drip” for one example), while he’s been referencing it for years. (Granted, even before Gunn, there have been other rappers making wrestling references in their raps such as Cam’ron, DOOM, Ruff Ryders, Outkast, Wu-Tang Clan and pretty much every battle rapper.)
Aside from wrestling, the Shady Records rapper also wants credit for starting the half and half shirt style. He ends his lengthy post by promoting his upcoming Chris Benoit album and clarifying he’s not starting any wars over his legacy: “YALL BETTER STAY WOKE I AM THE CULTURE & again I HAVE NO BEEF whatsoever wit ANYBODY I’m on my own Dick”
