Idris Elba is an internationally acclaimed actor, and now he's a rapper too. The British hearththrob released a new track this weekend entitled, Boasty. And many on social media are saying that he was firing shots at Drake in the track..
The song was with British rapper Wiley, female rapper Steffon Don and Jamaican music legend Sean Paul.
So how did Idris go at Drake - the most popular rapper in the world?
Well, the song Boasty, was originally released by the British artist Wiley. According to social media reports, Drake was supposed to be on the remix. When he backed out, Idris stepped in and killed the track.
And Idris made sure to throw a subtle jab at Drake with the final bar. In his last line, many are saying was aimed at Drake. He rapped:
and I write for myself, no ghosty
Here's the song:
No word yet on whether Drake plans on "Meek Milling" Idris . . .
In other Drake news, Variety and a slew of others pointed out Monday morning, that Drake's track "Don't Matter To Me" featuring Michael Jackson was indeed not a part of the proceedings at Manchester Arena, where Drake launched his Assassination Vacation tour with Tory Lanez and Tiffany Calver. The track, co-produced by 40 and Nineteen85, notably did appear on setlists for his previous Aubrey and the Three Migos tour in 2018.
Of course, no official reason has been given by Drake's team regarding the omission of the track from the setlist.
The Jackson family, meanwhile, has released multiple statements condemning the HBO documentary that preceded these kinds of moves. In response to a tweet about her father's legacy being "ruined" and his name "smeared forever" earlier this month, daughter Paris Jackson called for the continuation of a message of love and peace.
