Respect it. We don’t go over to the rock culture and country and be trying to critique.”
He continued to defend Drake against his critics. “How are you sayin’ somebody sold out? You don’t even know what sold out is in this culture. Drake is one of the greats. Drake be gassin’, bro.”
“If Drake is trash, you ni**as stop giving him 50 billion streams. You get what I’m saying? ‘Cause y’all all listening to it, bruh. It’s too many streams, bruh. Y’all listening to it, y’all just don’t want to say it.”
While Drake’s background may make him susceptible to criticism, Q says you can’t deny his talent. “He tight, bro. When you just light-skinned and from Canada, ni**as wanna, you know—but the n***a hard, c’mon, man.”
