Eminem has denied dissing Drake on “Lucky You” from his surprise album Kamikaze.
On the track, he raps: “I got a couple of mansions / Still I don’t have any manners / You got a couple of ghost writers / But to these kids it don’t actually matter / They’re askin’ me, ‘What the f**k happened to hip-hop?’ / I said, ‘I don’t have any answers.’”
But, in an interview with Sway, Eminem downplayed speculation that his words are aimed at the Canadian rap star, who has previously been accused of using ghostwriters.
“Drake is going to always be in my good graces, because he did something for one of my daughters that I will never forget and he will always be in my graces for that,” Eminem said.
“And I like Drake.”
He explained the “Lucky You” rap is about not knowing “what’s real and what’s not” in music.
“You hear s**t about this rapper, that rapper, whatever. I’m telling you that I don’t do it. Never have and never will. If I ever need a ghostwriter, I need to just f**king put the mic down.”
Eminem added that he’s a Drizzy fan. ”[Drake] makes great music. It’s not really anything you can say about it.”
