Drake has clarified online hype he created off a line from his “Stay Schemin’” record and said a reference to NBA star Kobe Bryant’s divorce was not a shot toward his wife.
Check what he has to say after the jump…
Drizzy said his lyrics about losing a lump sum of dollars to a woman on the basis of marriage was not a diss toward Vanessa Bryant.
“That line came from a conversation about being this young and making this much money and the fear of losing it all. I just used his potential situation to address my own life. I never intended to offend Vanessa or anyone else. That line had everything to do with me and what goes on in my head as a 25 year old man with this much income flowing in. Kobe is and always will be a friend and an icon to me.” (Nah Right)
Speculation on Drizzy’s lethal words developed following the song’s release earlier this month. On the record, Drizzy questions why Bryant is required to fork over millions of dollars his wife did not contribute to.
