Drake is saying something about Lupe Fiasco on "5 AM In Toronto," which he recorded in 2012
It's funny when you think a n*gga blew up after Lupe
Niggas treat me like I've been here for 10
Some niggas been here for a couple, never been here again
I'm on my King James shit, I'm tryna win here again
When the track dropped, some folks thought it was a sly Lupe diss, considering Lupe's career seemed to be on the downswing.
Lupe doesn't think that. [Jump to 36 minutes.]
"I don't think he said that," said Lupe after Genius's Rob Markmark read him the lyric. "I don't know. He's never confirmed that. He's never said anything about that and people always bring it to me and make it a thing. And I kinda played into it generally because I ain't really know but I still don't think that's what he said."
Markman then said he doesn't really know because Drake has never clarified.
"I never heard him speak on it," Fiasco agreed. "I can just tell you that Drake has a lot of respect for me and I have a lot of respect for Drake," added Lupe. "A majority of the rappers have a respect for me."
