Earl Sweatshirt Accuses Drake Of Being “A Vulture” To Young Rappers

Odd Future member Earl Sweatshirt has shared some pretty anti-Drake sentiments on Twitter, calling the rapper “self-serving” and saying he “can be a bit of a vulture on young rap niggas”.

Earl Sweatshirt (real name Thebe Neruda Kgositsile) took to Twitter after Drake posted a video of himself on Instagram in which he dances to the song SKRT by Florida rapper Kodak Black. Drake tagged Kodak Black in the post (below), but didn’t make any further comments.

Earl later brought up the idea that Drake had “found” Kodak Black, before dismissing it altogether.

After a Twitter user said Earl’s tweet was a “hipster tweet”, Earl said he doesn’t want Kodak Black to become a “victim” of Drake. He also said that Drake sharing Kodak Black’s music on Instagram isn’t just the casual and uncalculated thing it appears to be.

Earl agreed with a Twitter user that it would have been worse if Drake had featured on one of Kodak Black’s tracks, but suggested that Drake can sometimes sit uncomfortably between “paying homage” and “wave riding”.

In closing, Earl offered up a comment about the current state of the rap game, given the media coverage his tweets have received.

Drake and Kodak Black are yet to publicly comment on Earl Sweatshirt’s tweets.

Drake was recently accused of “jacking” D.R.A.M.’s song Cha Cha, released in March, for his own single Hotline Bling, released in July. “Yeah, I feel I got jacked for my record…But I’m GOOD,” D.R.A.M. tweeted earlier this month.

Similarities between the two songs are pretty clear, with Beats 1 even describing Hotline Bling as “that Cha Cha remix” when it premiered. Catch Cha Cha alongside D.R.A.M.’s tweets, below.
