In an interview with Winford William of Onstage, Mr. Vegas elaborates on his views of Drake’s new album.
Previously, Mr. Vegas conducted an 8-minute rant on why he thinks Drake is profiting off Dancehall or Reggae artists by not given them the proper credit.
The “Heads High” deejay also feels that Drake uses other musicians as “intro men,” which he described as “a person that used to stand up at the studio and hype up the record before the real artist got on the record.”
“Being his usual no-holds-barred self, Mr Vegas this week, stoked negative sentiments towards Drake’s use of Dancehall in his ‘Views’ album.
The “Heads High” singjay lambasted the Canadian rapper for first the exclusion of Popcaan’s version of “Controlla” from the album; but more importantly, according to Vegas, the inclusion of samples from various Dancehall artistes without the appropriate credits.
The “Bruk It Down” DJ has taken to social media to air his grievances with Drake, who he thinks is a fake riding the current wave of Dancehall in mainstream America to his advantage but is no real lover of the genre.
So far Mr Vegas has received a wave of support for his stance; but where Popcaan is concerned he is pretty much asking the “Heads High” DJ to shut up and stay out of it.”
