Drake Mentions ASAP Rocky and Says ‘I Ain’t Pretty’ on Unreleased Song With Lil Yachty
Drake Mentions A$AP Rocky in Unreleased Song With Lil Yachty
On Saturday (Sept. 2), a Snapchat user who goes by Tristian Hankey hopped on the video-focused social media platform and secretly recorded some short videos from Drake and Lil Yachty's unreleased music video, which is assumed to be directed by Lyrical Lemonade founder Cole Bennett.
The first clip, however, gained immediate attention due to Drake name-dropping A$AP Rocky on the track. Tristian Hankey wrote on the clip, "Ever seen drake filming music video unreleased music in ridge with yachty?" The video can be seen below. In the recording, Drake rides around in a car that's decorated with Christmas lights and drops rhymes that reference the Harlem rapper.
"I ain’t pretty Flacko, b***h," Drake raps. "This s**t get really Rocky."
Another video finds the Snapchat user hiding behind a tree and recording another scene from Drake and Lil Yachty's upcoming music video. Yachty's verse can be heard playing in the background while Drake and Lil Yachty vibe to the record.
Later that day, Drake hit up his Instagram Story and seemingly confirmed the collaborative music video by posting a since-deleted picture of Cole Bennett. Bennett hinted at the upcoming visual on his Instagram Story as well. The music video director reposted Drizzy's social media post and wrote, "I was gonna keep a secret but..[eye emojis]."
Why Is Drake Mentioning A$AP Rocky?
Drake could be potentially throwing shots at A$AP Rocky due to Drizzy's past romantic relationship with Rihanna. From 2009 to 2016, the OVO Sound leader reportedly dated RiRi on and off. Meanwhile, A$AP Rocky and Rihanna's romance bloomed in 2020, and it has been strong ever since. On Aug. 21, they welcomed their second child together. Last May, they also announced the birth of their first child: RZA Athelston Mayers.
Drake and Lil Yachty Previously Collaborated on Yachty's "Oprah's Bank Account"
Drake and Lil Yachty's last collaboration was in March of 2020. Yachty enlisted Drizzy and DaBaby for his single "Oprah's Bank Account." The song finds the three rappers comparing a woman's good looks to Oprah Winfrey's bank account.
