Is It Realy Over For Drak?
The 9th of June marks the 11th day of Drake's silence. Outside of a brief note clarifying the origins of his blackface photo, no words have been spoken, no raps released. It’s a loud quiet, an oxymoron of war. It’s also a long quiet; the seconds tick differently when each draws nearer to your downfall.
This is new territory for Drake. The master of meticulous calculation has become a prisoner of the proverbial clock. He has become what was once Meek Mill: a citizen of silence cornered into the quiet.
Rap beef of this caliber doesn’t allow for leisure to the losing; there’s no breather while being beaten. Since the release of Pusha-T’s “The Story of Adidon” six days ago, a response has been awaited. The only way to combat venom is with venom, and Pusha-T bares the fangs of an eyelash viper. Some believed it would be delivered the next day—the Amazon Prime tactic. Others considered the possibility of a more strategic release, on an unexpected day. With each passing 24 hours, the anxiety of anticipation only increases.
