(AllHipHop News) Reports of Drake saying “F-ck Hot 97!” at New York City’s Madison Square Garden swept across the internet last night (August 4).
Several personalities from the radio station responded on Twitter to the alleged comment nearly moments after the supposed diss took place.
The Ebro In The Morning program further addressed the controversy on Friday.
The show’s hosts claimed they were unable to find actual audio of Drake saying “f-ck Hot 97.” But video of the Toronto native rapping about how the station was lying on him as well as his call for Funkmaster Flex to be fired has made its way to the web.
Both Ebro Darden and Peter Rosenberg stated since there is currently no proof of the “f-ck Hot 97” remark it changes the dynamic of the situation.
Darden did go on to address his previous commentary where he claimed Drake and Eminem were close to getting into a potential rap battle. That statement is believed to be partly what led to the “One Dance” performer’s most recent signs of animosity toward Hot 97.
“Drake, you and I know that the Eminem thing earlier this week was a joke. People took it out of context and ran with it,” said Ebro. “I don’t think he’s really mad about that. I don’t think that’s an issue.”
However, Drake did add an Instagram post before his MSG show that appeared to be a response to Ebro’s Eminem story. He wrote in the caption, “If they don’t have a story these days.”
Rosenberg also made it clear to Drake fans that Hot 97 was not going to fire Funk Flex just because the OVO Sound head asked for that outcome.
