Jewish rapper (and Degrassi: The Next Generation alum) Drake has found himself in a beef with the two biggest names in hip hop — Jay-Z and Kanye. It all began when Drake accused Hova and West, who are set to release their joint effort, “Watch the Throne” on August 8th, of stealing his idea for a collaborative album from him and Lil’ Wayne.
Well on their newly leaked track “Otis,” Kanye hits back at Drake. And no, he didn’t take the microphone from the young rapper mid-acceptance speech. This time, Mr. West was slightly more subtle and put his words in a track.
I must admit that I find myself ignoring tribal allegiances and siding with West and Jay-Z on this one. An artistic collaboration between two hip hop stars is an idea hardly worthy of a patent, Drake!
