On Monday (Sept. 25), Drake appeared to rehash tensions between him and Charlamagne Tha God after recent comments that “The Breakfast Club” host made about the SZA-assisted single “Slime You Out.”
“Drake put out a song last Friday [Sept. 15] and… nobody cared. The Drake and SZA record,” Charlamagne said on an episode of his “Brilliant Idiots” podcast. “It came out last Friday, and people just started talking about the lyrics yesterday. ‘Cause I saw people posting about how he said something about, ‘Whipped and chained you like a slave.'”
In response, Drizzy took to his Instagram Stories to call the media veteran an “off-brand Morris Chestnut” with an odd fascination. “Are you okay, Lenard? You’re kinda weirding me out, G. Like you’re really obsessed with me or something for years like you look in the mirror and wish you saw my reflection type s**t,” he wrote. “Whatever you gotta do to let it out. I’m sure your 435 loyal fans will stand by you, ya f**king goof.”
Unsurprisingly, the apparent beef was brought up on “The Breakfast Club” a short time later, and — according to Charlamagne himself — the whole back-and-forth is a planned act.
“I want to tell y’all something, but you not gonna believe me because I’m lying,” a possible sign of this all being a troll move, before continuing, “Drake and I plan this out every time he drops an album. I’m part of the album rollout. He drops a record, I critique it, it brings more attention to the record, more attention to the project.”
Charlamagne added, “I keep telling Drake he doesn’t need me to do that. He’s Drake. But for whatever reason, he wants me to do it, so I oblige.”
Whether or not this is factual, the presenter did admit that earlier jabs at the OVO captain were genuine hate. According to him, that all changed after a line from a certain Meek Mill diss came to life. “After ‘Back to Back’ and he sent the bottles with the note, ‘Let’s be friends,’ we came to an understanding and we agreed that whenever he dropped certain songs, I would hate on them in order to bring more attention to the record,” Charlamagne explained. “I don’t think he needs it. I think it’s crazy he still wants me to do that.”
