Drake Frustrated With Kanye West For ‘Publicly Sh*tting’ On Him
Kanye West’s Saint Pablo tour was famed for its incredible floating stage, and Kanye’s tendency to fly into long rants about Trump, Jay Z and more. At one stage, Yeezy referred to Drake as a poor imitator, and that didn’t go down too well with the Canadian.
Speaking with DJ Semtex on OVO radio, Drake expressed his frustration with Kanye ‘publicly sh*tting’ on him."I think everybody has their own little things going on. I'm not really sure what he's referring to half the time.
"I went from being... like working on a project with him, to him sorta publicly sh*tting on me and DJ Khaled for being on the radio too much.
"But yeah I'm not really sure, everybody's got their own thing going on...When I hear that, I just distance myself from it you know...I accept it, I don't respect it at all.
"I feel like me and Khaled are just good people, I'm not sure why we're the target of your choice that you made that night."

In an extensive interview, Drake also spoke about his delayed More Life playlist project.
"The style in which it's being put together is based on the concept of OVO Sound Radio. It's almost like a radio show," he said. "I basically asked myself 'What if I did it like OVO Sound Radio but every song was a new Drake song?' It's more like an evolution of a mixtape. After Views, I was inspired and I wanted to keep the music going and get people inspired."
Drake also spoke out about his frustrations with the GRAMMY Awards (he’s not the only one), where he felt like he was shoehorned into a category that doesn’t represent him.
"Even though 'Hotline Bling' is not a rap song... the only category they can manage to fit me in is a rap category,” Drake said.
"Maybe because I've rapped in the past or because I'm black, I can't figure out why... I won two awards – but I don't even want them, because it just feels weird for some reason."
