Of course they did. Drake and CB just fought over a bitch but once they realized the bitch ain't really shit to be fighting for in the first place, they squashed it. That and they're soft on confrontation anyways.
I got to say, I was giving Drake his props for his latest album Nothing Was The Same since I felt it was a better overall album than that overrated junk Take Care but that said, I'm not liking the butthurt bullshit he's spitting about Kendrick's Control verse. Let's be real, the reason Drake is saying "Nobody is talking about it (which is bull since people are STILL asking about it and bumping it)" is because he wanted to be the one to change the guard and the game into the new age before anybody did but Kendrick beat him to it. The verse wasn't a diss if your name was mentioned on the song, which Drake's name was. "Harsh words"? Fool, then you would have cried daily in the 90s. You would have thought KRS One and Kool Moe Dee should have apologized to each other then. Hip Hop, at its' core and foundation, has been built on two things. Culture and competition. The culture of hip hop is to transcend style, fun, and positivity among the people and the community while the competition brings the flare, hunger, and determination upon the music and battle of Hip Hop. As a supposed Hip Hop fan, Drake should have known all that and took it as a competitive gesture for everybody to step it up rather than a diss to his work and effort.
Drake and his fans can front all they want and the media can cover it up as well but the truth is, Drake was irritated and hurt by the verse and wants to derail Kendrick's momentum but not in the right way. Just look at his face and demeanor when he talks about it on that Hot97 interview. Come on, dude...
And the Drake/Cena and Lamar/Punk comparisons as of late are warranted and justified, IMO.
