Chance the Rapper takes on Drake.
Covering Drizzy’s “Feel No Ways” for BBC Radio 1Xtra’s “Live Lounge,” Lil Chano added his own flavor to the Views track.
“There’s more to life than hearing stuff and being mean to me,” sings Chance, switching up Drake’s lyrics for his own. “We have to let go of us to show ourselves what we can be / But that just didn’t sit well with me / Trying to make me feel a way on purpose / Throwing dirt on my name in public / You don’t feel no way on purpose / I’m messing up all of Drake’s words on purpose / Careful, careful / Be careful…You can never be too careful.”
Elsewhere on the show, Chance performed “All We Got” off his Coloring Book album and offered a prayer for Kanye West, who was hospitalized for dehydration and exhaustion last night.
“I want to extend a very special prayer to my big brother, Kanye West,” he said. “I know there’s a lot of weird folks out there, but you already know that I’m a hundred grand. I want to just extend this prayer and this love from all the way in Britain. We might come home early to see this man. Happy Thanksgiving.”
Chance’s lyrical changes to Drake’s “Feel No Ways” and his comments regarding “weird folks” are particularly curious because they come on the heels of a newfound feud between Drake and Kanye.
After Yeezy claimed that the 6 God and DJ Khaled’s “For Free” success was set up, Drake warned rappers to “watch” how they speak on his name and appeared to diss ‘Ye on Instagram by writing: “Some bwoy need fi make some hit song and stop cry.”
Since then, Kanye was hospitalized after reportedly assaulting a gym staff member and being placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold.
