Once upon a time we thought we may not see the two together again.
The rift between Jay-Z and Drake has finally been settled and two of this generations biggest artists are back on good terms.
Drake decided to pop up at The Carter’s On The Run II show in Detroit on Monday (Aug 13). There the two got a chance to hug it out, and also enjoy an incredible show in which he was seen rapping along with Jay-Z and hanging out with DJ Khaled.
Hova is featured on Drake’s latest album Scorpion on the track “Talk Up.” It’s the third time Jay-Z is featured on Drizzy album (“Pound Cake,” “Light Up,” and especially the first before the two had a brief beef three years ago.
In a Rolling Stone piece, Drake made some references about Jay-Z’s raps in Magna Carta Holy Grail and more specifically the single “Picasso Baby. “
Drake is interested in art, but he scoffs at how trendy art shout-outs have become in rap. “It’s like Hov can’t drop bars these days without at least four art references!” he says. “I would love to collect at some point, but I think the whole rap/art world thing is getting kind of corny.”
Hov later responded with some words in Jay Electronica’s track ” We Made It.”
“Sorry Mrs. Drizzy for so much art talk, Silly me rappin’ ‘bout shit that I really bought, While these rappers rap about guns they ain’t shot, And a bunch of other silly shit that they ain’t got.”
The two continued sending shots throughout the years, where we finally got to this point.
