“Well, that flow has been killed by so many rappers. And, I never want to use that flow again in life. [Laughs] I wanted to take if off my album, because I was like, ‘I shut ’em down. Onyx.’ I hate the fact that that rhyme is still in there. To be honest, that flow, you can trace it back to like…I trace it back to Big Sean (artist on Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music). That’s the first guy I heard utilize that flow throughout the duration of a verse. I’ll give him that credit. I think Kanye got it from him. Me and Wayne found a dope way to do it. I don’t want to sound cocky, but the best way its been used was on “Forever.” Those lines just all individually make so much sense. They’re all punchlines. Then a bunch of rappers started doing it and using the most terrible references in the world. I don’t want to offend somebody…I hate that rappers picked that flow up. I wish they had left that for people that know how to use it. [They go like] “It’s a parade! MACY’S!”
Grammy-winning rapper Ludacris has finally responded to Drake and taken aim at Big Sean after getting accused of using the “Supa Dupa” flow pioneered from Kanye West’s protege. On his new “Bada Boom” record, Luda wastes no time in clearing the air and denying being a flow jacker.
“I’m the truth in this booth and you n*ggas all h*es,” Luda raps. “Counterfeit rappers say I’m stealing they flows, but I can’t steal what you never made up b*tch/Y’all some duplicate rap cloning n*ggas/I manufacture you h*es put on your makeup b*tch. … Let me explain, nothing’s been new since Big Daddy Kane/Flows’ll get recycled, passed around to different names — Y’all get a couple hit records, make some noise and have the nerve to start shouting?/Who’s gassing ’em?/ … 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 … ‘My Chick Bad’ went platinum, still winning motherf*cker!” (“Bada Boom”)
Even though Ludacris doesn’t mention names, it’s apparent where the aim is. It’s a bit ironic that Ludacris felt the need to put out a diss track, the same day Drake’s new Take Care album dropped. Drizzy fans, what’s your opinion on this whole thing… All I know is Drake has his own flow and it’s FIRE as you can tell from Take Care.
