Hotline Bling rapper Drake is expected to appear on an upcoming episode of the REVOLT series Drink Champs with co-hosts N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN. Noreaga eagerly posted on his Instagram Monday to shared the exciting news with his 1.1 million followers. However, he didn’t reveal a premiere date.
In the caption, he noted they’d be discussing the 2012 beef between Drake and the late DMX, one N.O.R.E claims he squashed through OVO producer Noah “40” Shebib.
“U see my face and u know why I’m here!!!”he wrote. “CHAMPAGNE PAPI; but who’s who? OVO DRINK CHAMPS LOADING. #CertifiedLoverBoy LOADING. @champagnepapi x @therealnoreaga @drinkchamps #drinkchampspodcast a lot of people don’t know but I squashed the beef between dmx and drake thru my boy 40 but we will save that for drinkchamps!!! Gotta big up Ovo 40!!! Armand and fancy.
In 2012, during an interview with The Breakfast Club, DMX unapologetically flexed his opinion on Drake, saying at the time, “I don’t like anything about Drake. Not his fucking voice. Nor the shit he talks about. I don’t like his face, the way he walks, nothing. I don’t like his haircut.”
Fast forward four years later, the Party Up hitmaker had a change of opinion. After Drake used his song “How’s It Goin’ Down” for the 2016 Views cut, “U With Me?”, DMX was flattered. The track featured DMX’s name and lyrics from “What These Bitches Want” from his 1999 album And Then There Was X.
The Call That Made the Difference
“I did always say that he was a talented lyricist, but was not a fan-you’re right,” he said during another interview with The Breakfast Club. “It was another humbling experience. Like, Yo, you didn’t like this dude for all the reasons… For him to take the effort-first, to want to use a song of mine- and then to be man enough to reach out and make that call, homie, hat’s off, man. That was a real move.”

It wasn’t God’s Plan for Drake to be slain in his own home apparently, thankfully. Last week, Drake’s home was invaded by a woman armed with a knife. According to Page 6, the woman allegedly approached the gate of the 50,000 square foot Toronto mansion. She was taken into custody following the failed attempt to invade the home, just before the feds received a disturbance call outside the Bridle Path home. Law enforcement told the Toronto Sun that the woman was armed with a knife and allegedly struck one of the security guards with a metal pipe. However, no one was injured and she didn’t make it inside the property.
