This wouldn’t be the first time Drake was called out for using
stealing other artists’ style/flow or uniqueness for his own benefit, but this is the first time he’s being called out by a dancehall artist for being a “culture vulture.”
Mr. Vegas, a legend in the music genre, called out Drizzy for making his new album, Views From The 6, mostly dancehall influenced without giving any props to dancehall artists or working with them.
Vegas also mentioned other artists who are using the music without giving props (Justin Beiber), but he singled out “Drake the Fake” for making his album 50% dancehall inspired
Drake actually featured dancehall artist Popcaan on the Controlla track, but took him off once the Views album dropped. Popcaan responded to Vegas with a video of his own, saying Vegas doesn’t need to “defend” him and that he doesn’t need any help from his fellow dancehall star.
“Drake the Fake” also sent a subliminal shot to Mr. Vegas on IG, using a caption with Jamaican slang, because for some reason Drake’s from the Jamaica now even though he’s just a Jewish guy from Canada. *eye roll*
