Veteran Rapstar Soulja Boy had an interview with The Breakfast Club today, saying he’s responsible for the artist that Drake is today.
“Stop playing like I ain’t teach Drake everything he knows,” Soulja Boy said to Charlamagne Tha God in the interview. “Drake? Drake?! The nigga that got bodied by Pusha-T? The nigga that’s hiding his kid from the world but his world wouldn’t hide from the kid? Aubrey Graham in a wheelchair? DRAKE?!”
To further drive his point home, Soulja posted a video on Instagram following the interview, featuring a comparison of his 2007 song “Crank That (Soulja Boy)” to Drake’s 2010 song, “Miss Me.” While the introductory bars on the latter do reference a few bars Soulja used on his breakout hit, it’s hardly a career-defining moment on the back of another artist.
Watch Soulja Boy’s full interview on The Breakfast Club and his Instagram post below. Do you agree with him?
On Tyga: “The ni**a that lost his bitch to Travis Scott? The ni**a that Travis Scott nutted in a bitch and got her pregnant?”
On Kanye West comparing himself to Walt Disney and Steve Jobs: “Ni**a, you ain’t none of that. Then why you ain’t come out with shit then? I came out with a whole video game console. I’m the first rapper to do that in history, bruh. You ain’t Walt Disney, you ain’t none of that, bruh. You kissed them folks ass at Louis Vuitton and you kissed them folks ass at adidas, and you came out with two pairs of goofy ass tennis shoes.”
On 6ix9ine: “I’m not impressed. ‘Cause ni**a all you did was what I did. But you ain’t even do it right ’cause you in jail right now.”
On Drake: “The ni**a that got bodied by Pusha-T? The ni**a that’s hiding the world from his kid, but his world wouldn’t hide from his kid? Aubrey Graham in the wheelchair? Drake? Y’all ni**as better stop playing with me in here. Stop playin’ me like I ain’t teach Drake everything he know. Y’all ain’t hear Drake with his first song: ‘Tell me what’s really going on, Drizzy Drake back in this thing already, what’s happenin’.’ That’s Soulja. That’s my bar. He copied my whole fucking flow, word for word, bar for bar. Don’t act like I didn’t make Drake. Don’t do that.”
