Drake and Ludacris made amends during the 2017 Billboard Music Awards Sunday night (May 21st), after Drizzy said during his award speech, “Ludacris, we haven’t always seen eye to eye, but I’ve always been a big fan of yours and I got a lot of love for you. I want to let you know that face to face, while I’m still here.”
Many seemed puzzled about when the two were ever feuding. According to Complex, the beef was sparked back in 2010 after Drake called Luda out for using the “Supa Dupa” flow, which was previously used by Drake, Big Sean, Nicki Minaj and a host of others. During an interview with AllHipHop, Drake said at the time, “I hate that rappers picked that flow up. I wish they had left that for people that know how to use it.”
- Big Sean apparently shared Drizzy’s sentiments, which were met by a diss from Luda on the track, “Bada Boom,” where he said, “Counterfeit rappers say I’m stealing they flows. But I can’t steal what you never made up, b*tch.” Meanwhile, years later, Drizzy took another jab on, “How About Now,” — which appeared on, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. Drake rapped, “I used to always try and burn you CDs of my new sh*t/You be like, ‘Who’s this?’/I’d be like, ‘Me, girl,’ You be like, ‘Oh, word, true sh*t?’/Then ask if we could listen to Ludacris/Them car rides made me feel like I was losin’ it.”
- In other news, is Drake getting a Celine Dion tattoo? According to video footage that has surfaced the net, while meeting Dion backstage at the Billboard Music Awards this past weekend, Drake said, “You’re very iconic. We love you. I’m like a year away from a Celine Dion tat.” Drake currently has tattoos of Sade and the late Aaliyah.
