Swizz Beatz has backed down after calling Drake a ‘pussy’.
The drama started after a track featuring Busta Rhymes and Drake leaked online. The song was created when Busta was still with Young Money. The song surfaced on the internet on Wednesday. Busta was seemingly unaware of the situation when he first got on Instagram Live with Swizz Beatz. However, he tried to explain to Swizz that Drake wasn’t trying to slight him by leaking the record. Still, this didn’t sit well with Beatz; he made it clear that his “filter [was] burnt” when it came to the situation.
“Because at the end of the day, niggas is pussy for real. What’s up? Pop off. Let’s go,” Swizz said in conversation with Busta.
“I don’t want to get it misconstrued,” Busta appealed. “He didn’t come to me to make a record with me. He wanted to do [J Dilla’s] beat. Dilla beats. That’s what it was about. That’s all I’m saying.”
But this didn’t soothe Swizz’s sentiments. It appears that Swizz’s problem with the leak is the fact it possibly came from Drake’s camp. And if that was the case, then Drake would have been putting out a track that no one can profit from.
“My whole energy was based on something that got leaked that you couldn’t put out no matter what the circumstances is,” Swizz said before making a reference towards Drake”s Air Drake. “But it’s cool. That’s a little kid. That’s a guy. That’s a little guy. … It’s no personal things … If it was personal we’d shoot your plane out the sky.”
