Earl Sweatshirt In Beef With Drake Over Kodak Black
Earl Sweatshirt took to Twitter to share his disbelief that Drake is supposedly taking credit for discovering Kodak. He tweeted, "drake found kodak black? smh welp."
That immediately set off backlash from Earl Sweatshirt's followers, who argued that Drake's patronage can help young rappers gain exposure they wouldn't otherwise receive. Earl Sweatshirt stuck by his original statement, tweeting in response, "drake can be a bit of a vulture on young rap n--."
It doesn't sound like Earl Sweatshirt wants to start beef with Drake, but just call him out on the "blurry line" he rides between calling attention to new talent and riding their coattails. He said in a follow-up tweet, "aye but just like the line between paying homage and wave riding is a blurry so is the one between giving criticism and hating." Read more here.
