Drake addressed an issue that some UK artists are claiming that he is a UK culture vulture of their music scene. WWETV spoke with a couple of artists and asked the question concerning some in Europe feeling Drake was exploiting their culture and youth. WWETV had exclusive interviews with TDNB and Sneakbo. Wiley has also thrown the “culture vulture” accusations towards Drake.
Drake was co-hosting a 1Xtra Rap Show with Tiffany Calver in the United Kingdom. The topic was addressed by the Toronto artist. He had a few choice words below:
I like to enjoy what’s going on… I appreciate like all these young people creating all these things. It takes some real energy and synergy to create a good song. We were joking today about the comment that my boy left on the picture or whatever or on the video of me at Loski’s showDrake
I hate that people think that me being into music from these kids that are trying to make it and trying to build a name for themselves is like ‘oh that’s some culture vulture…’ what does that even mean? I don’t understand what that means. Would you rather me not acknowledge anything or support? Like that’s some real like confused hater shit. But it is what it is.”Drake
Wiley still is standing by what he said and addressed Drake once again with a video below.
