Not everybody liked Drake's "God's Plan" video, in which he gives away a million dollars to various people in Miami.
Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg thought it was a self-promotional cheap trick.
"Is it a little bit cheap to use those emotions of, 'Look at this person in need getting something good,' and transfer those emotions onto yourself," he said on the radio.
Not long after, Drake contacted him. He was not happy.
Since people are going to come at me today cuz I was critical of the Drake vid.. "You wouldn't say that if Kendrick did it". Kendrick's music and moves are WHY I always rock with him...I don't approve of what he does BECAUSE he's Kendrick. I approve BECAUSE he does things right— Peter Rosenberg (@Rosenbergradio) February 20, 2018
Just got off the phone with @Drake ....he took some serious issue with some of my commentary on the God's Plan video.....we will discuss tmrw @oldmanebro @LAURASTYLEZ— Peter Rosenberg (@Rosenbergradio) February 21, 2018
Rosenberg discussed the conversation this morning on Ebro.
"I switched on my new iPhone and the second I turned it on I got a text from someone saying, 'Stop pushing end and answer your phone,’" Rosenberg said. "So I answered the phone and right away it sounded like there was a fight at a Tim Hortons. Because when Drake got mad—I've never heard his Canadian accent that strongly. Drake yelled. He was very passionate."
"He was very angry, saying, 'I don’t understand how I could do something so positive and you could find a way to make it negative,'" Rosenberg continued. "He also asked me, ‘What is your problem with me?' ... I could hear in his voice that this was very clearly the most important thing that he's ever done," Rosenberg continued. "He was clearly very affected by doing something so good for people. He meant it so sincerely. It made me feel terrible. I was like, 'Damn, you think I'm a bad person.' As the conversation went on, he clarified he doesn't think that. But in the moment, he was like, 'Bro, come on man, I did something good and you hated on it.'"
