Drake praised Griselda throughout his conversation with Rap Radar hosts Elliot Wilson and Brian “B.Dot” Miller, especially once the topic turned to current Hip Hop music that inspires him.
“Just in our like rap rap space, I really like […] that whole like cliqueing up Griselda shit,” he said. “It’s just ill to me.”
Miller, who’s also a fan of the WWCD creators, asked if there was potential for a Benny and Drake collaboration.
“Yo, I’m down,” Drake replied. “I’m down. Benny showed me love on an interview one time too.”
Drake continued to commend Griselda, applauding them for bringing back a rap collective that’s inspired by classic Hip Hop.
“I think what they’re doing is great.” he said. “It just reminds me of a different time and it’s not easy to do. To make that music and just come off wavy and be interesting.”
