Aw! Now that Drake and Eminem are all good, HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY how proud Rihanna is of Drizzy for sharing his stage with the rap legend.
Rihanna, 28, could not be happier that Drake, 29, and her longtime friend and collaborator, Eminem, 43, put an end to the rumors that they were preparing for a nasty rap battle. As HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY reveal, the superstar was a little concerned that eventually her own name would have gotten thrown into the alleged feud.
“Rihanna’s so glad Drake let his ego down and shared the stage Em [on August 16],” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She’s been telling Drake for weeks that the last thing he needs to be in another feud, especially with someone close to her like Eminem.” And it seems that Drake definitely took her advice!
The source continued, “Ri know her name would have been all up in both their mouths and she would have been the focus of their beef had they released diss tracks on each other. Needless to say, she’s happy that these two rap legends are on the same page.”
In case you missed it, Drake brought out Eminem during his Detroit concert — which is Em’s hometown — and surprised fans with an epic performance. Once they were done, Drake told the audience that Eminem was the “greatest” rapper in the world, and Eminem returned the compliments before hoping off stage. This was a pretty iconic moment for both artists, especially after radio personality Funk Master Flex of New York’s Hot 97 started a vicious rumor that Drake and Eminem were planning to pop off on each other in a rap battle.
Thankfully we now know it’s nothing but love between Drake and Eminem, and hopefully that means we can look forward to a super sick collaboration between the two very soon! Hey, maybe Rihanna can even join them?
