If there’s one rapper that brings together almost an entire generation of music fans, Drake is easily up there because of his undeniable talents. You either loved him from the show Degrassi or you love his music (or even a few songs). He’s just a likable guy with a good personality and the ability to flip a switch and turn into a savage. As of recently, he’s made headlines for a few different beefs he’s been involved in, and it’s proving he’s no more Mr. Nice Guy.
The Infamous Invoice
Drake has recently gotten himself into another feud that turned out to be as savage as they come. Pusha T’s album “DAYTONA” was released last week and Kanye West produced the entire album. The song “Infrared” didn’t sit well with Drake as it dissed one of Drake’s most popular ghostwriters, Quentin Miller. So Drake immediately released a freestyle diss track “Duppy”, and called out Kanye for producing the album. The lyric “Tell ‘Ye we got an invoice comin’ to you / Considering we just sold another 20 for you.” No one thought it was serious until Drake actually sent a fake invoice for $100,000 for helping to revive his career.
His Fight Against NBA Players
During the 2018 NBA playoffs, things got heated for all fans of the sport. He got into it during round one against Washington Wizards player John Wall where he infamously called him a “bum.” During the first game of round 2 the Toronto Raptors, who Drizzy is a team ambassador for, were playing the Cleveland Cavaliers, and got extremely heated. This time he picked his battle with the 6’10” Kendrick Perkins of the Cavs. And it was all caught on tape:

He even went so far as to get warned by refs in the league to cool it down or he will be removed. Say what you will but he’s as loyal as they come to his team and his love and dedication don’t go unnoticed.
Drake And Rihanna Break Up
Remember in 2017 when the 6God and Queen RiRi finally got in a relationship after years of flirting and speculation? (Not to mention years of Drake confessing his love for her). It all took a turn for the worse when Rihanna opened up to Vogue about their relationship and the infamous Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2016. She said his speech was “probably the most uncomfortable part.” She continued to say “we don’t have a friendship now, but we’re not enemies either. It is what it is.” Within a day of the interview being released Drake unfollowed her on social media and spent the next few days posting cryptic Instagram captions. There has been no official response yet but his new album is due to come out soon and you know it’ll be acknowledged throughout the album.
It’s crazy to think that he used to have the reputation of being the overly sensitive rapper who cried in his room and took things too seriously and is now a savage artist who lets his work speak for itself rather than start beef online and hide behind a keyboard. He’s earned his respect in this industry and “God’s Plan” is truly working in his favour right now.
