Drake & Wiley beef over “culture vulture” comments

14 April 2019

Drake has called out Wiley whilst co-hosting the 1Xtra Rap Show with Tiffany Calver.

Drake’s response comes after several tweets and since deleted Instagram posts from Wiley where the London grime scene legend called out Drake for bringing out UK artists during his Assassination Vacation Tour stops.

Wiley labelled Drake a “culture vulture”, a “pagan” and proclaimed that he would never come out on Drake’s stage. See a few of the Tweets and Instagram videos below.

Drake responded directly to the controversy by saying, “I like to enjoy what’s going on… I appreciate like all these young people creating all these things. It takes some real energy and synergy to create a good song. We were joking today about the comment that my boy left on the picture or whatever or on the video of me at Loski’s show. I hate that people think that me being into music from these kids that are trying to make it and trying to build a name for themselves is like ‘oh that’s some culture vulture…’ what does that even mean? I don’t understand what that means. Would you rather me not acknowledge anything or support? Like that’s some real like confused hater shit. But it is what it is”.

Drake then confirmed who his comments were aimed at by saying, “I just had to talk about it because it’s bothering me. But yeah I didn’t like that and it was Wiley that said that. I’ll just say his name because that was some goofy shit”.

Drake ended the discussion with “Man can chat what they want. If it’s a ting, let me know.”

Wiley has since responded with a few Instagram posts of his own. See a video taken from his Instagram story below.
