According to the rapper and broadcaster N.O.R.E., Future isn’t too pleased about Drake and 21 Savage’s recent album, Her Loss.
On Thursday, the Drink Champs star filled in as a co-host on The Breakfast Club, and during the ‘Rumour Report’ segment, he discussed Future’s alleged resentment towards the Her Loss duo.
N.O.R.E. explained that he’d heard rumours that Future is upset that Drake released a studio album with 21 Savage because he feels that it has the potential to overshadow the brilliance of What a Time to Be Alive, their 2015 collaboration.
“I heard there’s a big rumour that Future is not too happy with this Drake and 21 Savage album, and it makes Drake and Future’s album not as important, I would say,” N.O.R.E. said. “This is allegedly, this is all rumours, I’ve never heard it from Future’s mouth, never heard it from Drake, never heard it from 21, but it’s an alleged big rumour that’s going on right now.”
N.O.R.E. did then opine that Future’s apparent misgivings are understandable, given that most of the best rappers tend not to do more than one collaborative record.
“We’ve never seen JAY-Z do another Best of Both Worlds,” he said. “We’ve seen Watch the Throne, but that was an equal [pairing]. And even that Jay Electronica [album] was credited as the album, like there’s certain songs that don’t even say ‘featuring JAY-Z.’ So it’s different.”
N.O.R.E. praised Drake for “spreading” hip-hop through his many collaborations and expressed that Her Loss puts 21 Savage on the same “level” as Future.
“We gotta big up Drake because Drake, to me, is learning how important he is to the culture and he’s spreading it,” he said. “More so when you do a whole album with 21 Savage — and with all due respect to 21 Savage — it’s like, you’re putting 21 Savage on that level now. Even though he probably was on that level, but now, you’re putting him on the level of Future.”
He continued: “And Future is arguably one of the most influential artists ever. I mean, I look at these kids and all the drugs that they taking, and it’s all for Future. I’m sorry!”
Co-host Charlamagne Tha God then butted in, saying that he doesn’t believe Future is “petty” enough to hold a grudge against Drake over what such a trivial matter. N.O.R.E. then responded: “Nah. I mean, we getting too much money to be upset. But it’s a little discrepancy, that’s what I heard.”
