Master P shared his insight into Drake and Kanye West’s public feud on Tuesday’s (Sept. 7) episode of “Allison Interviews.” The two rappers have been verbally sparring for years, but Master P says he believes it’s each artist’s camp that is fueling the flames.
“I think it’s the people around them. You have to have people giving you better advice and you have to hold yourself accountable,” the hip hop mogul told podcast host Allison Kugel. “I’ve always had self-accountability. And start thinking about what you say or what you do and how it affects and hurts other people, and how you wouldn’t want that to be happening to you and your family. [There’s] a lot of self-hate.”
“I would rather sit in the sewer and eat cheese with rats than sit at a nice restaurant and drink champagne and eat lobster and steak with a snake,” he continued. “I think that’s what a lot of us are doing. When you get to that level of the game like some of these artists, why lose what you have? Once you get killed or go to jail there’s no turning back.”
Master P also issued a warning to other superstar-level artists who may have “crazy” fans who are willing to take professional beefs “into their own hands.” Proving Master P’s point, a few Drake fans vandalized Ye’s childhood home at the peak of their Donda–Certified Lover Boy quarrel last month.
“I don’t think people realize they have all of these fans that might even be crazy and take things into their own hands. We have to watch what we do,” Master P said. “There’s a lot of selfish people out in the world and there are a lot of snakes in this world. I think when you are at this level and you are making this type of money, even with some of these young artists that were losing their lives in hip hop, which is sad, we have to be thankful and take this as a blessing and grow.”
