8 AM In Charlotte: Drake Goes After Kanye West
Drake has just dropped his latest track, “8AM in Charlotte,” and it’s not just the time of day he’s focused on. The song, part of his AM/PM freestyle series, contains thinly veiled references to his ongoing feud with Kanye West. Let’s dive into the details.
Drake’s “8AM in Charlotte”
“8AM in Charlotte” opens with a skit featuring Drake’s son, Adonis, playfully dubbing his father as “Daddy Goat.” The song then launches into a soulful production by Conductor Williams. As always, Drake’s lyrics touch on familiar themes such as the pressures of fame and his chart-topping dominance. But it’s the thinly veiled shots at unnamed adversaries that have caught everyone’s attention.
Subtle Jabs at Kanye West
In the third verse of the song, Drake takes aim at those who’ve had their sights on him: “You n****s obsessed with me and it’s not on no hetero vibe/ Handle beef so quiet you think that I’m letting it slide/ Next thing you know we tiptoeing past enemy lines.” These lines suggest that he’s well aware of the ongoing feud and isn’t backing down.
Furthermore, Drake seems to reference the infamous revelation about his son on Pusha T’s diss track, “The Story of Adidon.” He raps, “Diss me so long ago, we making your memories fly/ Conspiracy theories start floating around like the Kennedy guy.” Drake maintains that he’ll hold a grudge against his adversaries for a long time.
Kanye West’s Fall from Grace
Drake doesn’t stop there. He appears to describe Kanye West’s recent struggles: “We all gotta lay in the bed we make, but that couldn’t be Drake/ You forced a lot of fake love when real ones stood in your face/ That’s why you got deserted by your n****s like pudding and cake/ I got you on camera bowing down but the footage is safe.”
This segment suggests that Drake believes Kanye’s fall from grace was self-inflicted and that he received insincere support from former friends. Interestingly, he mentions capturing something on camera, hinting at the possibility of having evidence to support his claims.
The Ongoing Feud
While Drake and Kanye publicly appeared to bury the hatchet with their Free Larry Hoover benefit concert in 2021, Drake hinted on the track “Circo Loco” that it might have been a favor to J. Prince, the founder of Rap-A-Lot Records. Their feud continues to simmer beneath the surface.
As this feud unfolds, fans can’t help but speculate about the nature of their ongoing rivalry and what might transpire next. Drake’s “8AM in Charlotte” makes it clear that he’s not ready to let bygones be bygones, and his jabs at Kanye West ensure this rivalry remains a hot topic in the world of hip-hop.
Stay tuned for more developments as this feud continues to evolve.
