Drake likes to ride waves from all around the world, whether it be grime, dancehall or bounce.

Does that make him a culture vulture?

In a series of Tweets (some deleted), English grime artist Wiley called Drake a "culture vulture" and a "pagan" and said he'd never join him on stage. Drake is currently touring the UK.

Drake responded to the renewed charges of culture vulturing during an interview with BBC Radio 1.

“I hate that people think that me being into music from these kids that are trying to make it and build a name for themselves is like, ‘Oh, that’s some culture vulture. What does that even mean? I don’t understand. Would you rather me not acknowledge anything or not support? That’s some real confused like, hater sh*t,” Drake said “I’ll never understand how, like, supporting somebody’s song, or even going a step further, giving somebody a song or linking up. I’ll never understand how that’s not viewed as something admirable. I didn't like that. And that's Wiley that said that ... I don't understand what you think I get out of it. I don't make any money. I just enjoy music. And I love to see people thriving in their element."

What do you think?
