Eminem says he was not hitting out at Drake on 'Lucky You' but was making a broader comment on the music industry
Eminem did not diss Drake in 'Lucky You'.
The 45-year-old star hit out at a number of other rappers on his latest record 'Kamikaze' and while 'Lucky You' was thought to be a shot at Drake, Eminem has insisted he would never hit out at Drake because the singer was kind to one of his daughters.
It had been speculated that Drake was the focus of the song 'Lucky You', in which Eminem raps: "I got a couple of mansions/ Still I don't have any manners/ You got a couple of ghost writers/ But to these kids it don't actually matter/ They're askin' me, What the f**k happened to hip-hop?/ I said, I don't have any answers."
However, speaking to Sway Calloway for 'The Kamikaze Interview Part Four', Eminem said: "Naw here's the thing. Drake will always be in my good graces because he did something for one of my daughters that I will never forget, and he will always be in my graces. I like Drake. What I'm telling you with these lines is I don't know what's real and what's not at this point."
Eminem also lashed out at the Grammy Awards saying he will never attend again after they used him just for ratings.
He fumed: "I'm fine if I lose to someone like Kanye West, who 'OK, I respect that, I know who that is. And Kanye he's got a huge following and made a massive impact on music'. Fine, I'm good with that. But don't get us all here to use your selling point for your f**king show and stiff everybody every f**kin' time. And I said after that point of time I was like 'don't ever ask me to fucking come here again. Please do not ask me, me answer is no'."
