Articles: Drake Responds To Luda On Twitter.

When Ludacris dropped his new mixtape, 1.21 Gigawatts: Back to the First Time, last week, two tracks immediately got the Internet buzzing. “History Lesson (Interlude)” and “Bada Boom” seemed to be taking shots at Drake and Big Sean for their use of what’s been called “hashtag” rap, the “pause, stop” rap flow or the “supa dupa” flow. Well, over the weekend, Drake broke his silence. Sort of.

On Saturday (November 19), Drizzy took to Twitter in response to Big Sean’s Twitter handle with a fittingly subliminal response to Luda’s subliminal diss (the Atlanta rapper didn’t name any names in his songs).

“@BigSean You awlready know. I wish they’d just let young niggas live…respect always,” the Young Money rhymer tweeted.

On the song “Bada Boom,” Luda raps, “I’m the truth in this booth and you niggas all hoes… Counterfeit rappers say I’m stealing their flows, but I can’t steal what you never made up biiitch/ Y’all some duplicate rap cloning niggas/I manufacture you hoes put on your makeup biiitch.” Later, he continues, “May not like the way I used it, but you know you ain’t invent it, boy/Do your research before you make a claim so bogus that’s disrespecting pioneers in the game.”

Late last week, Big Sean responded during a radio interview with Seattle’s KUBE 93. The G.O.O.D. Music star gave a few more words on the subject than Drake did, saying, “I aint got no problems with Luda, I never did. I think he’s referring to an interview I did over a year ago. But in the interview I say he’s a legend. I respect people who are ahead of me. I respect OGs and the Gs in general. The only thing I said was they asked me about the ‘Supa Dupa’ flow. I feel like Drake make it more popular on that song ‘Forever.’ A lot of people thought Drake made that up but he was like, ‘I could trace that back to Big Sean.’ I’m pretty sure it was done before that, but I’m just saying where it come from now.”

Music News: Big Sean Responds To Ludacris

While Luda’s recent diss aims to put Big Sean and Drake in check, Sean says “Badaboom” is built on a misunderstanding from over a year ago.

Ludacris’ newly released mixtape 1.21 Gigawattts featured a swift message to Drake and Big Sean and addressed their taking credit for what is called the “Supa Dupa” flow. The track, “BadaBoom” responds to the younger rappers’ alleged claims that Luda stole that punchline pattern. However, Big Sean offered his side to KUBE 93 radio in Seattle.

“Ya’ll sure [the song] is about me? ‘Cause I didn’t hear no name or nothing, ” he said. “I ain’t got no problems with Luda, I never did. I think he’s referring to an interview I did over a year ago. Literally over a year ago. But in the interview I said he’s a legend. I respect people who is ahead of me. I respect OGs and the Gs in general. The only thing I said–[the interviewers] was telling me about the “Supa Dupa” flow. They call it the Supa Dupa flow because on Big Sean my second mixtape I had a flow on there where I was using one word to describe another word in a punchline form.”

He continued, “I feel like Drake made it more popular on the song “Forever” A lot of people thought Drake made that up and this was new, and Drake was like, ‘I could trace that back to Big Sean actually on his mixtape. That’s where I first heard it. I think that’s where a lot of emcees got it from.’ That’s what Drake said. So people was telling me, ‘This is your flow.’ And I’m like, ‘Alright.’”

He also said he understood that the flow came before him, and perhaps even before Ludacris.

“I’m pretty sure it was done before [Luda] but I’m just saying where it came from now. We talkin’ about now…I’m not trying to debate and say, ‘I was the first to do this ever.’ I’m just saying that’s just where it was between us. So [some interviewers] asked me, ‘What’s a good example of [the Supa Dupa flow] and what’s a bad example of it?’ And I think I said [Luda's] ‘balloons’ line. But I’m telling you this was over a year ago. I can’t believe this was something that’s been lingering this long…I don’t have no problems with Luda. I didn’t even know he cared that much, for a year, to be thinking about what I said in interviews…I think Luda is the best, I think he’s a legend.”\

Music News: Maino Says There Is No Beef With Big Sean, It Was Just a Misunderstanding.

The “Hi Hater” rapper says the discrepancy with Sean was all a “misunderstanding.”

Maino recently implied that there was some sort of beef when he called Big Sean “Lil’ Sean” during an interview, but he says that it was just an accident and misunderstanding. During an interview with WGCI’s DJ MoonDawg, the Brooklyn, New York rapper said that he said Sean’s name wrong and cleared up the unintended shot at the 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards.

“I was making a point to some of my homies that a lot of the rappers of today, you look foolish beefing with because they ain’t about that type of energy. They ain’t about that. They ain’t about the gangsta, thug imagery. They ain’t into the street credibility or what have you. They more or less cool dudes. There’s nothing wrong with that. I gave examples like Wiz Khalifa and Big Sean. In the heat of my conversation, I called him ‘Little Sean.’ People thought I did it on purpose, and I really didn’t.”

He said he held off until he saw him in person so that he could personally discuss the matter with the G.O.O.D. Music rapper.

“I ran into him at the BET Awards on the red carpet and I wasn’t going to reach out through no phones. I was going to see him whenever I saw him and told him that wasn’t really what I was about, because that was contrary to everything I was saying. Why would I say in one breath, ‘You look crazy beefing with dudes like that’ and at the same time trying to diss him?” he said. “He not even talking like that. These artists not even talking like that. They cool dudes and had jobs and was just existing. Drinking, getting high, smoking, partying, that’s cool. That’s fine with me. It wasn’t really me trying to get at him. It was really a misunderstanding.”

The “Hi Hater” rapper also spoke on Papoose’s recent claim of being “King of New York,” stating that no one is yet to one-up him.

“Ain’t nobody from New York outdo me yet, not even new artists,” he exclaimed. “Did he say he was the king of New York? I’m out here moving. I didn’t catch it, I heard some things.” source: hiphopdx.com

ARTICLE: Big Sean Says Drake Bit His Flow…

The “My Last” rapper explains that there’s no ill will towards Drizzy, despite initial feelings.

Big Sean is credited with pioneering the one-word punch line, but many assume that his contemporary Drake was the one who came up with the flow. During an interview with Big Boy’s Neighborhood, the Detroit, Michigan rapper explained that he has no ill will towards Drizzy for biting his flow – but insisting that he’s the true originator of the style.

“Drake is my homie. He gave me a lot of credit, because I came up with rhyme scheme a lot of people thought that he came up with,” he said. “I called it ‘Supa Dupa Flow,’ but he kind of made it more popular on the song ‘Forever’ with him, Wayne and Drake, it was kind of the one-word punchline. I did that on my second mixtape I released in ’09 where I was like, ‘I’m supa dupa troopa/Used to the bottom scoopa.’ I just gave them line after line after line of barcode. He kind of took that and used it on his track. A lot of people thought he did it. The thing is, he gave me credit for it like a real G.”

The G.O.O.D. Music signee watched as the rap game took the flow and turned it into a trend. “It’s crazy because the whole rap game did it, so I was sitting back,” he said. “At first, I was like, ‘Man, this crazy! Everybody doing this!’ But then I thought about it and I was like, that’s not the way to be. You gotta keep it G, man. G’s don’t get mad. G’s is like, that’s what it is. They congratulate you. I changed the game, so I’ma keep changing the game. It is what it is.”

Sean admits that he’s still cool with the Young Money rapper and that their friendship came as a surprise. “I just talked to Drake a couple days ago, he’s a good dude. He was wishing me all the best. It’s just tight that people in hip-hop can really be cool like that.”~hiphopdx
