Earl Sweatshirt Calls Drake a ‘Vulture,’ Criticizes Him for ‘Wave Riding’
Not everyone is riding on Drake's bandwagon -- including Earl Sweatshirt. After the Toronto rhymer posted a video of himself dancing to rising Florida rapper Kodak Black's "SKRT," Sweatshirt went to Twitter to vent his disdain for Drizzy's knack for "wave riding."
"drake found kodak black? smh welp," wrote the Doris creator in what would begin a series of tweets. "drake can be a bit of a vulture on young rap n----- and i don't want lil kodak to be a victim of it."
But after being criticized for being a "hater," the 21-year-old rapper decided to back off. "aye but just like the line between paying homage and wave riding is a blurry so is the one between giving criticism and hating," Sweatshirt tweeted.
But the Earl creator isn't the only one who peeped the pattern. "gonna steal his flow and song probably," tweeted one fan. "he gon try to make it seem like he put him on," tweeted another.
But Drake's co-sign can go a long way for rappers as one Twitter user pointed out. "not a bad thing look at migos," tweeted a fan likely referencing the group's song "Versace," which was made popular by Drake's remix. Although the trap trio did accuse the OVO leader of biting their sound later on.
Drizzy has also been criticized by D.R.A.M. for "jacking" his song "Cha Cha." And lest we forget the allegations from Meek MIll that Quentin Miller ghostwrites for Drake.
