Drake Responds to Jay Z: “I’m the Big Homie, Too”

Today is the day. Drake's much-anticipated third album, Nothing Was The Same, is officially in stores, but many of you have probably had the opportunity to check out the work beforehand, due to the early leak. With that being said, one of the more enticing records on the project is the Jay Z-assisted "Pound Cake / Paris Morton Music 2.” This of course isn't the first time we hear Drake and Jay on the same track, but now Drizzy has undoubtedly come into his own. Hov started out his verse with the line, “I had Benzes ‘fore you had braces,” which garnered Aubrey to fire back, "“Look, f*ck all that ‘happy to be here’ sh*t that y’all want me on. I’m the big homie, they still be tryna lil bro me, dog.” Drake is of course well aware that Jay is still the big homie, but he recently chopped it up with MTV disclosing that he himself is the big homie, too. In speaking on the coinciding project lyric, the Young Money rapper explained:

That’s the first time I’ve ever said that before. On this album I’m extremely aware of where I’m at and nobody can tell me differently. I’m the big homie too. As much as I do remain humble and stay cordial, don’t think I don’t know. I know what’s going on out here, I’m 26 — I’m out here in the streets with the people.

Drake has never been one to shy away from confident statements, but has he indeed reached the point where he can mention himself in that regard? Let us know what you think and be sure to grab a copy of Nothing Was The Same now.

    Well I've always been a Jay fan, and I liked what he did on WTT more than his recent albums, and MCHG is basically that same vibe but on a solo album. I like the message, I like that his perspective is from a billionaire who doesn't need to rap anymore just doing this for fun and giving it to us honest. As for Drake, I'm just not a fan TBH.

    It's oversimplification to say that Drake is as big as Jay-Z, but he's definitely comparable. Kanye, Jay are both definitely bigger artists because of their catalogs and earlier success, but Drake is certainly a successful artist strictly objectively speaking. Remember when Lil Wayne was the biggest rapper in the world with Tha Carter III? He faded. There's always a chance for Drake to fade, but at least let the guy enjoy the fame and success while he can.

    I liked Jay's previous work as well. But, to me, MCHG was just uninspired work he squeezed out in a couple of months because he knew he would earn millions selling anything right now. IMO, the beat selection is weak, the lyrics go from same old shit(Tom Ford, Picasso Baby) to corny as fuck (Part II, Holy Grail, La Familia) to pretentious BS, everytime he is pretending to know so much about art.
    And the billionaire perspective you were talking about is nothing new to rap AT ALL. It's just that he and B actually are billionaires.

    Magna Carta was terrible !! People only liked it because of the artist, only decent song was BBC, only was good because of the feature artists. Jay Z we get you have money and like May-backs. Get some new material
