OVO Sound boss Drake’s career is far from over. New reports claim the 6 God is still fattening his wallet off hit singles.
According to reports, Drizzy is dominating the Songs Revenue Chart despite stiff competition from artists like Post Malone and Childish Gambino.
Drizzy’s featured appearance on Lil Baby’s “Yes Indeed” helped make the track the top earner for the second straight week, and his own “Nice for What” kept its lock on #2, while his latest, “I’m Upset,” finished third in its first week. Throw in “God’s Plan” at #6, and we’re looking at a total of $669,203; just another week in the office for Drake—who, you may have heard, will drop a new album this month. (HITS Daily Double)
Fortunately for Drake, his publicized rap rival Pusha-T has confirmed their recent headline-generating battle is over.
“I don’t even know. I don’t know what was lost or what was gained,” Pusha said when asked what fans are supposed to have learned from the rap battle. “These conversations have been had and, to my knowledge, it’s all over. It’s all over with. … These conversations have been had and, to my knowledge, it’s all over. It’s all over with.” (Vanity Fair)
This week, hip-hop mogul Diddy admitted Drake took the L in the rap battle for not responding to Pusha’s latest diss song.
“I think you gotta listen to your OGs because it ain’t worth it. But as far as in a battle, if he didn’t respond, he took the L. I said he took the L because he didn’t respond and I said he should have listened, he should listen to J. Prince because I was in that same position with ‘Hit ‘Em Up.’ I told Big not to respond. So I can understand. What Big had written for them, it was going to get as bad as it got. It’s an L because we know there’s guidelines and rules. You have 48 hours to respond. Pusha-T almost took an L but it was Memorial Day Weekend and he came back on Tuesday.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
Earlier in the week, a pic surfaced of Drake coming out to attend a private birthday celebration.
