Does Drake’s song “KMT” from the 2017 playlist More Life sound familiar to you? The late rapper XXXTentacion once declared in a now-deleted Twitter tirade that the song uses his flow from his breakout single “Look At Me.”
“I’m not the first n**** he bit, nor will i be the last,” he tweeted (via HipHopDX), before adding, “I’m not gonna twitter rap with n***** for stealing my flow, I slap n***** don’t come to Florida.”
X, who was a rising star at the time, elaborated on the issue in a March 2017 interview with Miami radio station 103.5 The Beat. According to him, Drake expressed an interest in him prior to “KMT” and said he would be reaching out to his team, but the communication never took place. Instead, X said, Drake ran off with his rap pattern. “He’s not a man. I think he’s a b**ch. That’s a b**ch move,” he told the host.
For his part, Drake denied biting X’s style, saying in an interview with DJ Semtex on OVO Radio. While he admitted that he could “see where people could draw [a] comparison,” he’s not dumb enough to steal from anyone, especially at this point in his career. He added, “I’m not a s**t person like that.”
