This comes after Mr. Vegas called out Drake for not listing dancehall artistes on his latest album “Views” even though he sampled their work.
Despite the album receiving some mixed reviews from many hip hop enthusiasts, Views has quickly become one of Drake’s most commercially successful projects. However, his success hasn’t come without criticism.
In a video posted on Facebook, Mr. Vegas makes mention of Drake’s recent success with tracks such as “Hotline Bling”, “One Dance”, “Controlla” and more. Mr. Vegas has been quite vocal when it comes to voicing his displeasure about Drake’s “culture appropriation” of the Dancehall sound without ever crediting artists from the genre.
He went on to suggest that Dancehall is a wave than many people are jumping on such as Justin Bieber, Rihanna, and more. Vegas’ jabs at Drake didn’t go unnoticed.
The Jamaican deejay called out the “Know Yourself” rapper for a number of reasons and basically labeled him as a fake person. However, the Young Money rapper seems unbothered.
It appears as though the “6 God” has been watching and listening for that matter, as over the weekend, Drake took time to throw jabs at Vegas’ hit single Heads High.
“Had to done off Vegas…Y fi di heads high,” he wrote.
“Wicked, wicked, Wicked…OVO Unruly same ting,” he said.
Drake who is currently in Las Vegas for the Billboard Music Awards, kicked off the weekend to a proper start with performances at Jewel Nightclub on Friday night. He also performed alongside Future for Floyd Mayweather’s daughter Sweet Sixteen party on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Drake is enjoying some success on the charts with his single “One Dance” returning to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Views is also No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart for three consecutive weeks. The album also surpassed a milestone of half a billion streams.
