Drake is not only a big deal in the United States but worldwide and his knack for tapping into different regions and sounds has often led to him being labeled a “culture vulture.”Drizzy brushing off most the criticism finally decides to speak out.
Recently the Toronto native sat down with BBC 1Xtra’s Tiffany Calver, where Drake fired back at claims that he’s a culture vulture.
“I hate that people think that me being into music from these kids that are trying to make it and trying to build a name for themselves is like, ‘Oh, that’s some culture vulture,’” he said. “What does that even mean? I don’t understand what that means. Would you rather me not acknowledge anything or support?
“That’s some real confused hater shit. But, it is what it is. I see it a lot. I’ll never understand how supporting somebody’s song or even going a step further, giving somebody a song or linking up, I’ll never understand how that is not viewed as something admirable. But, I guess some people have their own outlook on it.”
In March, Wiley claimed Drake was a culture vulture after seeing a video of Drizzy attending a show headlined by London-based rapper Loski.

Later in the interview, Drake gets specific calling out UK rapper Wiley.
“It was Wiley that said that,” he noted. “I’ll just say his name ’cause that was some goofy shit. But, yeah, I just didn’t like that. Like, what you talking ’bout?”
Although Drake has as they say in the UK been Mum, that hasn’t stopped Wiley as shortly after the interview he continued going in on the OVO rapper.
“If what I was saying was wrong you would of stayed silent,” Wiley writes on Instagram.
