Last week, on Drake’s new “Certified Lover Boy” album, fans noticed that he dissed Swizz Beatz on the “You Only Live Twice” record, ft. Lil Wayne and Rick Ross. This was due to Swizz calling Drake a “p*ssy boy,” to Busta Rhymes, on Instagram Live, last year.
Swizz recently gave his take on this, during an interview with Angie Martinez, and joined by his Verzuz Co-founder, Timbaland, and isn’t sweating it. He views this situation as “old,” and actually likes You Only Live Twice.
“People think that I started it because the way I came at it, but I never start things for no reason,” said Swizz. “It’s cool. It’s something that’s old. I actually like the song. Song’s dope. It’s cool man, Hip Hop, like a lot of people with this Hip Hop thing, it started off of that. It started off with two artists feeling some type of way, going at each other.”
Swizz also added that Kanye actually reached out, to do a Verzuz with Drake. He emphasized that in the end, it’s up to Ye and Drake on when they want to make this happen.
“He wanted to battle Drake,” said Swizz. “I don’t—I think they communication was probably getting in a zone. But, I left that up to them.”
Last month, Drake rekindled his 2018 beef with Ye, by dissing him on Trippie Redd’s “Betrayal” song. Ye soon included Drake in a group text, and called him a “nerd a*s jock.” Ye also ended up leaking what was supposedly Drake’s Toronto address. Drake went on to diss Ye again in the song “7am On Bridle Path,” from the CLB album.
