Drake is not a guy to go back on his promises! In his new song ‘Back To Back,’ he raps about ‘buying bottles for Charlamagne,’ and even though he’s had some beef with the radio host in the past, Drake lived up to his lyrics and sent his former nemesis a VERY expensive gift.
Consider the feud between Drake, 28, and Charlamagne Tha God, 35, OVER! Despite previously being dissed by the Breakfast Club host, Drake followed through on a promise he made in his song “Back To Back” by mailing Charlamagne SIX bottles of Dom Perignon. Pricy!
On the track, which Drake released on July 29, he raps, “You gon’ make me step out of my f–in’ frame, you gon’ make me buy bottles for Charlamagne.” And later that day, he proved that he’s living up to those lyrics — and Charlamagne could not have been happier about it.
“Look at this, y’all. Drake really sent the bottles,” the radio show host said in an Instagram video, adding that he thinks the rapper is a “classy guy.” With the gift, Drake also included a note that read simply, “Let’s be friends, Aubrey Graham.” Whoa — using his real name? You know he’s serious!
In the past, Charlamagne has admitted to not liking the way Drake sings, but he seems to have a newfound respect for the Canadian native now. “This guy Drake’s really living his raps, man. He said somebody was going to make him buy bottles for Charlamagne. He bought six bottles of Don Perignon,” Charlamagne said in a YouTube video, adding, “Hey man, all I can say is, saltue to that guy. Salute to Drake. He’s having a great week.”
The 35-year-old also clarified how he feels about Drake in the video, and guess what…he’s never actually hated him! “I’ve never been a hater. I give props where props is due,” he explained. “I don’t like the guy’s singing, I always like when he raps. And I love people that live their raps. I’ve never been a hater. He’s having a great week, he’s moving the culture for us. Because he’s rapping, not doing all this Twitter and Instagram stuff.”
Drake Disses Meek Mill On ‘Back To Back’
But “Back To Back” was meant for just more than a chance to make up with Charlamagne. Drake actually penned the track as a diss song to Meek Mill, who accused him of using a ghostwriter. In one of the verses, the 28-year-old references Meek’s relationship with Nicki Minaj, 32, rapping, “You love her then you gotta get a world tour/is that a world tour or your girl’s tour?/I know that you gotta be a thug for her/This ain’t what she meant when she told you to open up more.”
Who knew so much could go into one 4-minute song?! HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Drakes gift for Charlamagne?
