Rumors are part of any industry, and the music business is no exception to that fact. The world of rap and r&b, especially, uses the music as a means to dispel rumors, portray inner thoughts, and to even use it as an opportunity to throw some digs in there that further fuel the hype mentality of the industry. It really is all fun and games, unless you are Drake or French Montana.
In a track released by the two artists entitled, “No Shopping,” avid fans could not help but think that the song was a rebuttal to Joe Budden’s recent insults towards Drake, or Aubrey, as Budden referred to him as. When MTV asked if “No Shopping” was aimed at Budden, French Montana’s reply was simple: “It’s not that I don’t think — I know that for a fact.”
That is all well and fine, but just what were the two masterminds thinking when they were in the studio that day? Again, the answers were fairly concise and included drinking, enjoying life, and just genuinely having a great time making music together. The rapper went on to disclose that he, as well as Drake, never enter the studio engulfed in negative energy, and for others to make claims against that is fairly unjust and the comments are made out of ignorance. Regardless of receiving the answer from the very source, much speculation still exists in relation to the entire issue. One thing is for certain, though, and that is that only time will tell.
