Exclusive: DJ Khaled Calls Drake “Powerful” & Praises ‘NWTS’
While Kendrick Lamar is calling Drake a “sensitive pajama wearing rapper,” DJ Khaled is calling him “powerful.”
HipHollywood caught up with Khaled during his rehearsals for the BET Hip Hop Awards where he praised Drake and his recent album Nothing Was The Same.
“The album is amazing, it has a whole sound from top to bottom”, said Khaled. “You can tell he put a lot of work into it. I love it because every song that ends, it sounds like it never ends. So it kinda puts you in a trance, you know what I’m saying. For you to do that music, it means you’re powerful.”
Now of course the YMCMB artist would praise his fellow label mate, but the numbers don’t lie. ‘NWTS’ is currently sitting on top of the charts with 658,000 albums sold it’s first week, making it the highest grossing first week for a rapper this year.
