Drake Fires Back At Elliott Wilson Over Interview Criticism

Drake has hit back at Elliott Wilson after the veteran Hip Hop journalist criticized him for shunning rap media in favor of “outsiders.” After Akademiks shared a clip on Instagram of Wilson interviewing Trippie Redd at Rolling Loud Miami this past weekend, the 6 God jumped into the comments section to throw shade at the Rap Radar Podcast host.


Drizzy mocked the 52-year-old for “doing Yes Julz run-up interviews” and urged him to accept the reality that the younger generation is currently running things.

“Lol man shits on not coming to his platform for a second time and now Elliott 10 toes doing Yes Julz run up interviews at Rolling Loud,” he wrote along with laughing emojis. “Just admit the youth took over big dog.”

Elliott Wilson — who’s not one to shy away from a fight, as his tenure as XXL‘s outspoken Editor-in-Chief in the 2000s proved — caught wind of Drake’s comments and fired back on Twitter.


“Oh, it’s gone time? Cool,” he wrote while sharing a screenshot of Drizzy’s Instagram comment.

Earlier this month, Elliott Wilson called out Drake for snubbing Hip Hop media after he sat down for off-beat interviews with Barstool Sports‘ Caleb Pressley and TikTok star Bobbi Althoff.

“Moment of clarity: No disrespect to Lil Boat,” he wrote in a since-deleted tweet. “Yachty’s convo with The Boy was comfy and had some cool moments.

“I was more so clowning the comedy shenanigans with outsiders to our culture. It would be great to hear Drake speak to us again. Even if it ain’t me.”


Drake previously sat down with Elliott Wilson and Brian “B.Dot” Miller for a lengthy interview on the Rap Radar Podcast in 2019, which was posted to Drizzy’s YouTube channel and has over 18 million views.

Wilson isn’t the only Hip Hop figure who has been critical of Drake as of late. Earlier this month, Hot 97 and Apple Music 1’s Ebro Darden called out Drizzy for shading Childish Gambino’s “This Is America” and not speaking out on Black issues himself.

“Drake doesn’t have to,” he wrote on Twitter. “Nor should he if he doesn’t feel it. But to say ‘This Is America’ is overrated and over awarded when that song came at a time when people needed someone to say something. And he doesn’t feel the need to. That’s all.”


Responding to a Twitter user, Ebro clarified: “I was responding to Drake saying ‘This Is America’ is overrated and over-awarded. That song made people feel something at an important moment. And to slam that song when you never say anything is wack to me.”

A$AP Rocky debuted new music from his upcoming album Don’t De Dumb at Rolling Loud Miami this past weekend — and some fans believe he was taking shots at Travis Scott on one of the tracks. Perched above the crowd on a set of metal stairs with several iced-out hair clips in his braids, Pretty Flacko took aim at an unnamed rival while performing a song called “Taylor Swift,” which hears him brag about stealing their “bitch” as payback for biting his style.
