Rapper XXXTentacion has been accusing Drake of biting his style since January. Now, three days out of prison, he takes aim at the 6 God once again.
During his first interview since his release, the 19-year-old South Florida rapper explained why he feels this much animosity against Drizzy for allegedly biting his song “Look at Me!” for “KMT” off More Life.
“He is not a man,” X told Miami’s 103.5 The Beat. “I think he’s a bitch. That’s a bitch move, especially when I was in jail facing life. If Drake would’ve came to my bond hearing, that would’ve made my fucking day. If he would have showed that he’s a hospitable person and that he’s really in this shit for the culture, rather than… taking my shit, running off with it, and then taking it on his album, then he would’ve gotten my kudos, gotten my respect. I would’ve let him hop on the remix and take 100 percent royalty rate. I would’ve done it.”
XXXTentacion (pronounced Eks-Eks-Eks-Ten-Tah-See-Ohn) says he doesn’t respect Drake as a man, but he does respect him as a businessman. “Drake’s a genius,” he said. “I respect that ni**a’s career. That’s the G.O.A.T. Corporately, that ni**a’s the G.O.A.T.”
After hearing a snippet of “KMT” in January, X unleashed a series of angry tweets about Drake. “It’s funny how the industry let this pussy Ni**a sit at the top for so long, all y’all suck kill yourselves, Meh dun chat,” he wrote. “Now this pussy ni**a trying to play it save and play it innocent, but it’s cool we all know ‘hot line bling’ was a bite of ‘chacha.’ I’m not the first ni**a he bit, nor will i be the last, drake a pussy ni**a money don’t buy you respect.”
Tentacion’s beef with Drizzy hasn’t hurt his career. In fact, since launching his 6 God attack, his underground anthem “Look at Me!” has peaked at No. 61 on the Billboard Hot 100. The rapper, who recently inked a deal with EMPIRE, is building momentum for his debut project, Bad Vibes, due this spring.
X was most recently locked up on charges of aggravated battery of a pregnant woman, domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment, and witness-tampering. He has been accused of punching and kicking his pregnant girlfriend. According to a police report, the “victim’s eyes [were] punched to where both eyes became shut and victim could not not see,” as per Pitchfork. He is currently on probation.
