Drake Explains 2pac/Hov Line on Fear (Audio)

blame it on Shake October 15, 2009

Back in Vegas and it feels… meh? Yea, that’s a good description right now. Anyways, Drake tells MTV that he wasn’t dissing Pac with that line on Fear. But rather pointing out that he was too young to fully feel his impact at the time of his passing.

A lot of people also sort of don’t understand the meaning of that line. It’s not necessarily that I don’t love West Coast hip-hop or that I don’t love ‘Pac now that I’m 22, but that line was just said to show how new I am to hip-hop. And like I said, I was 9 when that happened, so it didn’t really affect me. But that song in general was just one of those things that took awhile to finish because it was an opportunity to say a lot of the things on my mind. That always feels good as a rapper, when you can get your thoughts out.
