Drake Addresses Being Called "Culture Vulture" By U.K. Rappers
Article By: Ashia Skye
Though Drake has openly displayed his love for the U.K. over the years, some natives feel he has appropriated their culture. Drizzy recently took to an interview to address being labeled a culture vulture by local U.K. rappers.
“I hate that people think that, like, me being into music from these kids who are trying to make it and trying to build a name for themselves, it’s like, ‘Oh, that’s some culture vulture.’ What does that even mean?” Drake said. “I don’t understand what that means. Would you rather me not acknowledge anything or support? That’s some real confused hater shit. It is what it is. I see it a lot. I’ll never understand how supporting someone’s song or going a step further and giving someone a song, linking up, I’ll never understand how that’s not viewed as something admirable.”
