                            Feud with slain rapper comes back to haunt Drake now as fans 'scrutinize' his past with XXXTentacion

Hip Hop artists including Kanye West, Diplo, and J Cole paid tribute to the 20-year-old rapper XXXTentacion after he was shot dead on Monday in his car in Florida. Social media was set ablaze after arguments broke out about his controversial past and violent relationships. The frenzy has given birth to many conspiracy theories and one such includes the multiple Grammy winner- Drake. 

Even though police have no official suspects listed, fans have taken upon themselves to investigate his murder and Drake isn't out of the picture. It so happened that the 'God's Plan' rapper was very much in public feud with XXXTentacion about a year ago.

XXXTentacion was one of the rapidly rising stars of Hip Hop and his career took off in 2017 when his single 'Look At Me' became hugely popular on Soundcloud. The rapper new to the Hip Hop fandom once claimed that Drake was impressed with him and promised that he would contact his manager “within a few days.”

The call never happened and Drake allegedly never kept his promise. But, however, "within the same week,” Drake performed a new song “KMT” that fans of XXXTentacion immediately took to point out the alarming similarity with his 'Look At Me.'

A public Twitter rant was launched by XXXTentacion and though it was quickly deleted, the internet still remembers. The slain rapper had tweeted that Drake's career was almost over and how he better start investing money into real estate because once it was all over he was really going to see the "fake love". There was more to the flurry of tweets where he called out Drake. 

Soon afterwards, in his interview with XXL, in February 2017, the then 19-year-old rapper said; "I’m gonna address this whole situation. I have the utmost respect for Drake as an artist.... Now, I’m aware of what Drake does as an artist, I’m aware of what any smart artist does, because it’s one of the laws of the universe. If you study Albert Einstein, he says, “A great artist never reveals their source.” Hinting that Drake is guilty of plagiarizing other musicians.

"How do I feel about the whole Drake situation is if he used the flow, by all means… it’s whatever, it’s not that serious. My whole perception has changed," he added.

"He could have reached out to me personally and spoken to me and it definitely would have been more respectable. But he dropped that preview and it sounded a bit like “Look At Me” and he could be a huge, huge help in this situation to get me out of jail, because I’m facing life. So that’s just how I feel. If you’re gonna take the flow, reach out to me, help me out and then take the flow, because helping me out would have been more important," he said in the interview when he was facing charges of battery and aggravated assault of a pregnant victim, battery by strangulation, false imprisonment, and tampering with or harassing a witness, victim, or informant in Miami-Dade County.

Speaking further on the topic, he said "But if he took it, kudos, that’s lit, it’s Drake. It doesn’t bother me as much as people think it does, but it’s lit at the end of the day because that’s a huge artist so it just gives me the motivation to see how big I’m gonna be. My whole intention is being the biggest artist there ever was or currently is."

Following the interview, in fact, about four months ago, he sealed the feud with a cryptic Instagram story that read if anyone tried to kill him, it would be Drake.
