It's like this Drake dude really has people scared to say a word about anything he's done. We all know Pusha could easily
put a stop to him, along with Kendrick.
The new era of rap is very strange. I guess that's why people were actually supporting Bronson on the whole Ghostface
thing instead of actually pointing out how he over-stepped his bounds.
Pusha t is not putting a stop to drake
The reason no one cares about the reference tracks or is saying anything is because all the top rappers recorded ref tracks themselves due to then being credited writers and ghost writers. why would they **** on the people who came to them for business. You know how many songs jay z and nas have wrote for people? You know biggie penned a few verses. Meek tried to expose an industry secret that wasn't really a secret to them and made his dumb *** look all alone
The main reason the exposure of reference tracks didn't amount to anything is cause for awhile now, a culture has been created where things like that don't matter anymore, especially to fans. Rick Ross as a CO, Plies getting thrown off stage like a toddler, Lil Wa_n_ tonguing a guy who he calls his daddy, Drake getting pee'd on, and Drake's reference tracks, all things that would be been brutal and damaging as late as 2005, just doesn't resonate with the current rap climate.
Also, bouncing ideas from each other like Rocafella/Wu-Tang is not at all the same as being handed a pre-made template of the song you're about to make.
