A lot of opinions are flung around with little thought when it comes to issues, especially on social media. One recent issue that has a lot of people heated in the comments and abroad is how Drake seemingly stole Xxxtentacion’s flow. It’s up to the individual to situate yourself on one side of the fence: either on Drake’s side or X’s side. It’s this antagonistic division that is pitting one fan against another, but I would venture to say that this doesn’t have to be so. It may seem like your only option is to defend Drake or X, but their is another side that one can subscribe to. It is built upon the acceptance of the fact that Drake stole X’s flow and the admittance that it’s not X’s flow to begin with, which coupled together would show why this “beef” between both parties and their fans is inconsequential.
Drake’s hot track “KMT” off of More Life is certainly a copy of Xxxtentacion’s “Look At Me!”. You have to be deaf or in adamant denial if you don’t agree. However, the amount of attention this is getting seems to be excessive. Flow refers to the style of delivery that a rapper possesses. Many experiment with different types of flows while others focus on the flows that they are comfortable with. The flow in question is the 7 syllable per bar delivery that X employs on his popular track. Drake uses the same flow on “KMT” on top of production that is similar to “Look At Me!”, but at a slightly slower pace. So it’s no question that Drake took X’s flow.
But what makes it X’s flow?
