Ludacris ain’t taking no sh*t from the “newcomers” and he let off a little steam on his new track “Badaboom.”
“Badaboom” is off Luda’s new mixtape 1.21 Gigawatts, which he dropped earlier this week. After listening to the bonus track, there were a few bars that raised a few hip-hop head’s eyebrows.
Apparently, Ludacris is setting the record straight after Drake and Big Sean made references accusing Ludacris of stealing Big Sean’s “Supa Dupa” flow.
Drake references Luda’s “My Chick Bad” delivery:
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!”
When asked about the war of words by MTV’s Sway, Big Sean said:
“Don’t get it wrong I’m not trying to diss Ludacris or nothing,” Big Sean said. “He’s a great MC. But even though that that style that got so overused, there was a lot of people who did it great and there was a lot of people who didn’t do it so great. People always ask me was you mad that people took that style from you. I’m like, ‘Nah, that went and shows me how far I can go as an artist.’ I feel like I changed hip-hop. I haven’t even dropped an album yet. So that goes to show me how powerful my mind is.”
That didn’t sit well with Luda, so he dropped “Badaboom” in response to the naysayers.
The lyrics in question go a little something like this:
“Big badaboom/ luda’s in this bitch/pussy n*ggas clear the room…Counterfeit rappers say I’m stealing their flows/ but I can’t steal what you never made up B*tch/ Y’all some duplicate rap cloning n*ggas/ I manufacture you hoes put on your makeup B*tch.”
Ludacris goes on to give a hip-hop history lesson to his intended targets, then he raps, “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.”
Hmmm…is Luda really dissing Drake and Big Sean or just addressing their claims?
