Big Sean isn’t holding any grudges towards Ludacris for the dis track he released earlier this week which takes shots at both Sean and Drake.
“I aint got no problems with Luda, I never did,” Sean said during an interview with Seattle’s KUBE 93. “I think he’s referring to an interview I did over a year ago. But in the interview I say he’s a legend. I respect people who are ahead of me. I respect OGs and the Gs in general.”
The interview the G.O.O.D. Music rapper referred to is one during which he was asked about the use of the “Supa Dupa” flow, which Drake credits Sean for re-inventing.
“The only thing I said was they asked me about the ‘Supa Dupa’ flow,” he explained. “I feel like Drake make it more popular on that song ‘Forever.’ A lot of people thought Drake made that up but he was like, ‘I could trace that back to Big Sean.’ I’m pretty sure it was done before that, but I’m just saying where it come from now.”
During the interview, Big Sean was asked to give an example of a time the flow was used improperly, and that’s when Luda’s name came up, an accusation Ludacris was clearly unhappy about, presumably prompting the dis song.
“I’m the truth in this booth and you niggas all hoes,” Luda raps on “Bada Boom.” “Counterfeit rappers say I’m stealing their flows, but I can’t steal what you never made up biiitch/ Y’all some duplicate rap cloning niggas/I manufacture you hoes put on your makeup biiitch…”
Later Cris continues: “May not like the way I used it, but you know you ain’t invent it, boy/Do your research before you make a claim so bogus that’s disrespecting pioneers in the game.”
Still, Sean remains he has no problems with Luda and respects his artistry.
“I aint got no issue with Luda,” he repeated. “I didnt even know he cared so much… I’m surprised he cared so much. Someone that’s been in the game that long, I didn’t think they’d be holding on… I think Luda is a legend.”—Gina Montana
