Rapper, 21 Savage has opined that he wouldn’t listen to any music from his colleague Drake if he weren’t a rapper.
According to Savage, “n****s don’t listen to Drake like that,” but that as an artist, he listens to Drake and can appreciate how hard he goes to put out successful projects.
Speaking to DJ Akademiks on his Off The Record podcast, 21 Savage said that fans don’t care about statistics, and to many people in Atlanta, Future is a bigger artist than Drake.
“N*ggas don’t be listening to Drake like that,”
“If I wasn’t a rapper, I don’t feel like I still would listen to Drake, for real. It’s just I’m a rapper, so I understand the work he put in, how hard he go.
“Like when you ain’t no rapper, all them statistics don’t mean sh*t. “A regular street n*gga don’t give a fuck about how many times you went number one, like how many white people listen to your sh*t because they don’t even think. The farthest they think is the club. Who’s selling this club out? That’s who they think is the biggest n*gga In Atlanta, it’s a lot of n*ggas who you really can’t tell them Future ain’t bigger than Drake. I used to think that.”
