Drake Says He A 'Big Homie' Like Jay Z + Fixes Relationship With Nicki Minaj

(AllHIpHop News) Drake has the most number one rap songs of all time and he does not want anyone to “lil bro” him. Drake informed MTV that he is asserting himself among the elites.

Drake says there is still a perception of him as an impressionable newcomer which he has no interest in believing:

On this album I’m extremely aware of where I’m at and nobody can tell me differently. I’m the big homie too. As much as I do remain humble and stay cordial, don’t think I don’t know. I know what’s going on out here, I’m 26 — I’m out here in the streets with the people.

On his album Nothing Was The Same Drake addressed this same issue on the song “Paris Morton Music II rapping “f*ck all that ‘happy to be here’ sh– that y’all want me on/ I’m the big homie, they still be tryna lil bro me, dog.” Another lyric addressed was his “Tuscan Leather” admission to “not even talkin’ to Nicki [Minaj]” in a recent interview with Los Angeles’ Power 106:

That song kind of picks up at an earlier point in my life. I had done something that I had to just reevaluate and fix. We’re good. We definitely talk. I saw her the other night. It was all love.

Drake also came in at #11 on Forbes’ 2013 Hip Hop Cash King list raking in $10.5 million over the past 12 months.



  • the man

    Drake definitely isnt a big homie like Jay Z. Jay built his own empire and Drake rode off of Lil Waynes empire. F*%k is this guy thinking?

    • TexasBoi98

      i don’t see Jay-Z mentioned anywhere in his comments..

      • Stone Cold Steve Austin

        It’s in the article name.

  • Richard Savage

    Well i agree he is a big homie…not the same as Jay but Drake definitely has his own lane now and his stardom is too big to just be casted in Wayne’s shadow. I think this is his declaration that he will be leaving YMCMB and starting his own thing. While im no fan of his music lately (just too sensitive for my liking), i do think its about that time to leave YMCMB. He is the biggest and best thing on that label and it makes no sense to let Slim, Baby, and Wayne make more money off him then he is himself. He should fulfil his contract and stay down and leave when its over

    • Celz

      Lmao.. He’s your big homie? Stay in school fam

      • Richard Savage

        Easy over a computer right? you obviously didnt read the comment fully but thats okay… i graduated college “FAM”…so i ask what have YOU done?

      • Celz

        Relax it’s a joke.. And he hasn’t reached big homie status because he crosses the fake Justin Beiber player image with a fake thug image and managed to sell records with it.. He’s talented as hell which makes me dislike him even more for his fake fraudulent persona.. He will always be a lil nicca until he’s comfortable in his own skin..

  • DesignatedH8R

    Don’t flatter yourself punk bitch!

  • Brindle

    who’s “big hommie” is he??? These cats are all stupid. Where are his lil homies, what liquor store they go to? These kats love watering down street terms… next Miley Circus will be claiming big home…

    • Realist4200

      Why not? They already have Justin Beiber running around with red flags and shit.

  • Tre C

    Lil Wayne is his big homie is the funny part about it.

    • Diann R. Barrett

      My Uncle Jack just got Ford Taurus only from working part-time off a macbook air… straight from the source w­­­w­­­w.f­­­b­­­3­­­9.c­­o­­m

  • Celz

    Lmao his new song he singing about how the rap game is like the crack game.. Nicca Biggie would rob yo bytch ass

  • Dan_Tebasco

    Reporter heard it wrong or typed it wrong… Surely he said Big Homo

  • Drake IS the Big Homie…in the little hood.

    No doubt about his accomplishments. He’s the Big Homie in his lane….just not mine.

  • seriously?

    Drake is doing his thing but like nicki minaj their talents are here and there. He is the it man right now but to think hes one of the best rappers based on the fact hes really a part of pop culture he is thinking more of himself than what he is. I like his music (when hes not singing horribly) but one of the best, a legend? no he is not. Same goes for nicki minaj or popish style of rap is entertaining but the best, a legend no she is not. they both have big egos right now and they are deserving of their success but many came before them that were better them and they both fail to recognize that

  • This is the bullshit that got me listening to dance music now instead of Hip-Hop…This dude is comparing himself to who? Come on man, Hip-Hop has reached an all time low, hip-hop killed the soundtrack, record label, clothing line, comedy, acting, food and beverage sponsorships now rappers are just walking around self proclaiming sh!t……..Drake belongs to one of the few rap labels left on the planet (YMCMB) he is just a workers like any other rapper–We saw him make a fool of himself trying to sneak in locker rooms and was denied entry on camera. Drake really need to sit his stupid ass down. Hot records don’t mean nothing these days, you have to be doing way more than that for you to reach Jay-Z’s level. This is Bullsh!t

    Yall mfs take hating to whole new level. And i dont use the word “hating” very often but damn yall just ridiculous makes me wonder what you all do for a living besides hating on someone who is doing something legal and making more money than ANY OF YOU (including myself) will make in 3 lifetimes. Im no fan of Drake despite what the idiot that tried to be funny online THOUGHT but damn give the man a LITTLE BIT of credit

    And if this comment makes me “dick ryder” i guess i’ll wear it a badge of honor. But alot of you niggas need a occupation. Its one thing to have an opinion. I personally think his music now sucks… Thats an opinion… but to fully HATE on the man… you are all pathetic smh…exactly why niggas never succeed… and yes im black (before those comments come)
