Drake: “I Don’t Know Why Kanye West Singled Me Out For Radio Play Criticism”
by Mike Winslow
(AllHipHop News) During an appearance on Beats 1’s OVO Sound Radio, Drake responded to comments Kanye made onstage during a Saint Pablo Tour date last year, when he took aim at radio station bosses for overplaying music by the Canadian and DJ Khaled.
“I think everybody has their own little things going on,” Drake said. “I’m not really sure what he’s referring to half the time because, in the same breath, I went from working on a project with him to him sort of, like, publicly s##ting on me and DJ Khaled for being on the radio too much.
“When I hear that, I just distance myself from it. If that’s what it is, I don’t even really understand the point you’re trying to make, but whatever it is that you’re going through, I accept it. I don’t respect it at all.”
“Me and Khaled are both just, like, good people,” he added. “I’m not really sure why we’re the target of your choice that you made that night. But again, I accept what you’re going through.”
Kanye halted his tour just before he was hospitalized following a reported breakdown.
