Birdman Denies Drake Was Taking Shots At Kendrick Lamar On “The Language”
The outcry from Kendrick Lamar's verse on Big Sean's "Control" track has started to die down. But some fans think, Drake tried to spark the conversation up once more with a subliminal shot on the track "The Language" off his latest release, Nothing Was The Same. On the song, Drake spits, "F-ck any nigga that's talkin' that shit just to get a reaction/ F-ck going platinum, I looked at my wrist and it's already platinum." Drizzy's CEO Birdman, who also appears on the track, recently chopped it up with MTV's RapFixLive and said he doesn't believe Drake was aiming at K. Dot with that barb. "Drake do what he do. He really slick with whatever he do. He makes you think. But I didn't think he put no energy into that," said Stunna. "Kendrick the homey, I ain't got nothin' but love and respect for Kendrick. Top Dawg is one of my best friends, so I would never want to see us condone that," added Birdman speaking abut his relationship with TDE's CEO. "That ain't what this about."
The rap mogul later expressed his satisfaction with the project Drizzy was able to put together and added that getting into rap beef isn't a savvy musica move. "I asked Drake to do his thing and I think he put together a classic piece. The music's great, I ain't think he went that route — to me," he said. "For me, I would never want to see that from none of my team or my teammates because then we taking away why we do this and we do this for the people."
