Is Drake Biting This Florida Rapper’s Sound?
If it isn’t a mystery ghostwriter popping out the closet, it’s someone else accusing the 6 God of biting their style or their sound. Drake recently premiered a new track in Amsterdam and it wasn’t long before his flow sparked a debate. Twitter users heard a resemblance in Drake’s new flow and the flow of the buzzing SoundCloud rapper, XXXTentacion. Everyone didn’t agree, but some certainly said they could hear it.
As far as some of Drake’s new music, quite a few believe that he’s been stealing Xxxtentacion’s style.
XXXTentacion, is a rapper out of Broward County, Florida (the same hometown as Kodak Black). He has a pretty solid following through his SoundCloud.
Some feel that it’s just noisy trap music though. The rapper is also currently in jail for allegedly assaulting his pregnant girlfriend.
Apparently XXX’s manager tweeted from the rapper’s account acknowledging the similarities between XXX and Drake’s flows.
“@KodakBlack1k What’s up with this f-ck !!!!! Drake bruh. Jit buggin like f-ck,” read one tweet.
Drake followed XXX earlier this month also, so it seems that he’s familiar with the rapper’s music. Some even believe that Lil Uzi Vert may have also been an inspiration behind Drake’s new flow.
Yall’s favorite, Drake, has been known to jump on waves though. Is this new flow traceable back to a specific rapper, or does it just align with how all rappers sound today? Do you think Drake has been sounding like XXXTentacion lately?
“Drake better title this “Look At Me Remix” smh @xxxtentacionhttps://t.co/vHntV8NG1A
