Hip-Hop Rumors: Is Drake Taking a Shot at Memphis’s Don Trip???


Now I don’t want to sound like an instigator, BUT it sounds like to me that Drake took a shot at Memphis’s own Don Trip, who has the hit song entitled “Letter To My Son.”

A couple of months back, Don Trip was on set of DJ Khaled’s ‘I’m On One” video shoot on the same day he recorded his own YouTube video for his freestyle of “I’m On One.” One of Don Trip’s most noticeable lines on the record was ” I bet I can sell paint/While it’s drying.” Now, notice on Drake’s song “Over My Dead Body,” he says, “Man all of your flows/ Bore me like paint drying/ And I don’t never be TRIPPIN/ Off of what ain’t mine.”

We all know Drake’s family roots can be traced back to Memphis from his father. Don Trip, being from Memphis, has been spending a lot of time in Drake’s new adopted city Miami because he signed to Cool-n-Dre’s new label. Who knows the relationship between Don Trip and Drake, if any at all, but there were definitely shots taken if you pay attention. Here’s a link below of Don Trip’s “I’m On One” freestyle:

Well???

  • David Gonz

    freestyle? dudes reading lol.

    i been on this niggah DON TRIP for a long minute now … im glad he getting good/bad press – period.
    DRAKE aint shyt but SWEET TEA anyway so he prolly did shoot a little diss considering he been feeling himself lately – but TRIP aint no appetizer neither – DRAKE uh apologize or sweep it under the rug when asked about it anyway so … NO SWEAT!

  • Blah Blah Blah………. All this coward does is talk in riddles so that when somebody goes “Hey, is that rhyme about me” he can cry and apologize and be like “Nah man, its just a line, your reading too much into it, I wouldnt diss you, lets be friends” and all that other back peddling

    Drake aint got the heart to address somebody out loud

    So who cares really, If Drake has a problem with somebody he needs to stop talking under his breath and speak on it, otherwise it must not be that important, and I doubt this dude cares enough about drake to be going over his record trying to find out which subliminal lines are about him, reading this article will probably be the first time he thinks about it

    I see somebody from cash-money universal gave yall a payola check this week.
    To mention drake anyway yall can, being his album is dropping.
    SMH……..

    Drake ate @ fat burger in LA.

    Drake diss luda.

    Did luda diss drake.

    Drake bought a pet turtle,

    Drake doesnt like fried fish.

    These are the type of rumor we will be getting for the next couple of days.

    • Papi Peligro

      Man that was real talk. 

    • Casor_Greener

      Yep!!! this is the lamest reach for generating beef that I have ever seen.  This is some female b.s.

      For the record this is not a freestyle as i know it. He is clearly reciting previous rhymes and reading off a paper

      • It’s wild how over the years, the word freestyling has been misused AF. Even wayne had to let ppl know, ey, i ain’t freestyling, i actually spit then stop then spit again. Don’t know why ppl forgetting what the shh mean

      • Actually the origin of a freestyle was not off the top.It was written random raps.It later turned to off the head

  • smokewinston100s

    wait…

    who???

    wait…

    who cares? 

  • R_REAL_TALK

    EVEN IF HE WAS WHAT IT REALLY MATTER, I MEAN WHATS MEMPHIS GONNA DO THANK HIM LATER WITH A TWEET?????

  • CEORAW

    SEE, THIS IS HOW BULLSHIT RUMORS AND BEEF GETS STARTED!

  • STRRRREEETTTTTTCCCHHH. People over-analyze shit, for real.

  • That dude ain’t talking bout Drake

  • Reaching. Drake actually says “Man all of your flows/ Bore me, paint drying”. Which could be interpreted as Drake;s disavowal of the use of the hashtag flow. But using your poor logic it would be a diss to Big Sean, Ludacris, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, and of course the world renown Don Trip.

    Yall reaching on this one. Starting to remind me of Media Takeout

  • Don Trip was pretty aiight with it. Worth a check in, no doubt!

  • Also, if it was a shot a Drake or a response, it was really weak. I think cats are reaching. 

  • Keith Brickz

    that is quite a reach and yes you are instigating…drake cant even handle the beef thats on his plate right now…and i use the word beef lightly because drake and big sean are two faggots…i doubt drake is looking to add any more potential problems to that list when every1 from gay sean to ludacris to common is coming for his head

  • obv not a diss, drake said that line wayyy before “im on one” even dropped. he said it in a freestyle at the end of “fancy” while at a show in london. the verse on “Take Care” is recycled..

  • STOP REACHING #THATISALL

  • YOU KNOW DAMN WELL DRAKE AINT TAKING ANY SHOTS AT ANY MAN THAT APPEARS TO BE EVEN A LITTLE BIT THREATENING……

    DONT YALL REMMEBER.. BEANIE CALLED HIM OUT ABOUT LETTING JAY-Z TALK CRAP ON HIS SONG… HE WAS QUIET AS A CHURCHMOUSE.

    LIL KIM TALK WRECKLESS ABOUT NIKKI, HE ON STAGE SCREAMING BLOOD CLOT IN JAMAICA.

    HE’S TOO TENDER… HE’S A TENDER LOVE…

    (WALKS OFF SINGING “CANDLES, THEY LIGHT THE DARK…”)

  • I doubt it… but if he want to take shots he need to address ludacris.. lets see how he handles that…. proably like he already is.. with silence

  • Ryan Crestwood

    Reach and a fail

  • don trip the truth point blank period

  • everybody going after drake like come one be serious he just makin music just like everybody else is let him be.
