Drake — the official Nice Guy of rap — is done being "non-threatening," according to a mysterious text message conversation that recently went public.
Controversial rapper — and apparent confidante to the 6 God — Ian Connor hopped on Twitter on Wednesday to share screenshots of a conversation with Drake. The two must be pretty good friends, because Drake opens up quite a bit on the topic of revenge— specifically, that when he does fire back at those who have been taking shots at him, it's warranted.
"Trust bro," begins Drake's lengthy response. "The blissful times of being new and exciting and non-threatening are over. There is real people suffering thru issues based around their own misery and frustrations and their reaction to it all is being taken out on those that threaten their bubble. Anyone that disrupts that feelings of the world revolving around them."
"Kobe ended his career with an entire campaign about how much people hate him. What a way to have to exit," he continued. "To feel like I was too good that even in my farewell we have to address the years you spent hating me for it. Just don’t let it make you bitter. Pls. I am happy despite waking up everyday and someone new flipping on me or talking down. And I have grown to the point that revenge makes me happy because my revenge isn't malicious it's warranted."
As BET pointed out, Drake may have foreshadowed this new, colder outlook during his acceptance speech at the American Music Awards last week. Just before leaving the stage, Drake cautioned, "Watch how you speak on my name, you know?" and pointed to the audience.
Cryptic, right? Who knows what Drizzy has up his sleeve, but here's hoping it involves even more diss tracks.
