Drake Responds To Being Called A 'Culture Vulture'
Zoe Taylor ·
During an interview with BBC Radio 1, Canadian rapper Drake finally addressed those rumours going around that he is a "culture vulture".
“I hate that people think that me being into music from these kids that are trying to make it and build a name for themselves is like, ‘Oh, that’s some culture vulture,’” he said. “What does that even mean? I don’t understand. Would you rather me not acknowledge anything or not support? That’s some real confused hater shit."
People have been labelling Drizzy as a “culture vulture” for years considering he likes to take sounds and styles from underground subcultures like New Orleans bounce, Caribbean dancehall, and UK grime and funky house.
“I’ll never understand how supporting somebody’s song, or even going a step further, giving somebody a song or linking up.. I’ll never understand how that’s not viewed as something admirable,” he said.
