Two weeks ago, Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios blamed his slow start at Wimbledon on Drake’s music. The teenage athlete claimed that he listened to some Drizzy before hitting the court and wasn’t as amped up or focused as he should of been.
“I came out really flat,” said Kyrgios said after the match. “Hopefully I won’t listen to that again! It was actually Drake. Didn’t do the job for me.”
Drake wasn’t amused. During a teleconference for his upcoming ESPYs hosting gig, the superstar MC had some choice words for Kyrgios. “I also want to meet this guy that says that he lost because he listened to my music,” said a pissed off Drake. “I also want to meet that guy and look him right in the eye and see exactly who he is as a man and size him up and then chop him right down. Nick whatever-his-name-is–’cause he didn’t win. So that’s how he’s going to be remembered ‘Nick whatever-his-name-is.”
Kyrgios did apologize via his Twitter account but maybe a singles tennis match between the two is brewing.
