The rumor mill has been working overtime, with rumors flying that there is some bad blood between the Toronto rapper and the XO boss. The rumors first started when The Weeknd refused to sign with the OVO label, Drake’s very own label. When news broke that Drizzy received material from The Weeknd that was added to his Take Care album this fueled speculation even more. During a recent interview with The Weeknd on Beats 1 Radio host Zane Lowe got the Starboy crooner to open up on the supposed feud, and the rapper voiced appreciation for Drake and a willingness to work on a joint project with the 6 god.
According to The Weeknd “He came in as my big bro and showed the world what I could do. From then on, he’s always been supporting me and I’ve always been supporting him. Behind the scenes, we’re still very close but it’s cool that the world can see us doing our own thing. OVOXO will always be there. It’s cool to have both monsters work together as opposed to one monster and one little guy coming in. It’s dope, like Kanye and Jay Z, when Watch the Throne happened. He’s the homie. At the end of the day, that’s my guy. Oliver, 40, all of Toronto. There wouldn’t be any new artists from there if it wasn’t for Drake making Toronto cool because it wasn’t cool. Let’s be honest. Canada wasn’t ever cool.” To further put the rumors of bad blood to rest Drizzy congratulated The Weeknd on his third album Starboy, sending out congrats to his fellow rapper from Toronto and also the XO crew as well.
