“Drake is Floyd Mayweather in music, right. He don’t miss,” FatBoy SSE said when speaking about the OVO mogul responding to naysayers. “So, why would he go against anybody and mess up his career? Just like the reason that he didn’t respond to Pusha T. I’m not gon’ go—I’m not saying Pusha T at the bottom ’cause Pusha T a dope artist, too, and Pusha T my dog, too—but at the of the day, why would you go down…you know?”
“He did it with Meek [Mill] ’cause it was like that time and that era right there,” he continued. “Why would you keep doing that, you know what I’m saying? You Mayweather of this sh*t.” SSE called Drake “the biggest in music since Jay-Z” and added, “And Imma say this: he’s bigger than Jay-Z.”
The radio hosts told him that he would certainly ruffle a few feathers with that statement. “It’s a different time. It’s streaming time. That’s just a fact… That’s my opinion.” The hosts questioned if the comedian really thought Drake was a bigger artist, and that’s when FatBoy SSE explained himself. “He’s not bigger than Jay-Z, I’m saying musically-wise, like it’s streaming, it’s different.”
“Don’t mess up my words.” Check out both the clip below.
