“I feel like Lil’ Kim is a G in the game. I feel like you’re a part of an era that’s classic, that we’ll never forget as young kids, me and Nick,” he told DJ Envy of MTV2’s “Sucker Free.” “You don’t have to do that. You don’t have to get onstage and tell people to pay homage; that’s a given.”
Despite Kim’s claims that she doesn’t feel respected by her fellow femcee, Drake thinks otherwise. “I’ve watched Nicki pay homage time and time again. I didn’t respect [Kim’s comments] at all.”
He also expressed his disappointment with Ray J, who took shots at the Harajuku Barbie during the Queen Bee’s New York show. “Whoever else was onstage with her, I didn’t respect that at all. You just wearing your heart on your sleeve. You’re showing that you’re upset,” he added.
While he hasn’t been in the same situation, Drizzy would have handled it differently. “Nobody’s done that to me yet. I would never expect Jay or ‘Ye to get onstage and be like, ‘Pay homage to me. You need to respect me.’ They know they command my respect with their music and talent,” he said. “I feel that’s signs you’re just losing it. I really did take that personally. That bothered me. I really don’t get caught up with the Twitter and Internet stuff, but I did see it. And I feel like you’re supposed to be a G. That just wasn’t G to me at all.”
