Video After The Jump
By now pretty much everyone has heard "Bada Boom." The song was Ludacris' answer to Drake and Big Sean claiming he bit Sean's "Supa Dupa" flow. In the video Luda released to accompany the diss track he gives Drizzy and Sean a hip hop history lesson and tells them to do their research before making claims about creating flows that were done years ago.
“With the super duper flow, I created that one word rhyme style,” Big Sean told MTV back in March 2011. “Drake really made it more popular, but Drake gave me the credit and was like I really got that from Big Sean. I think some artists just did it so wack man. Every time I say names I get in trouble and it’s like I’m dissing, but some people used it wack. If he said Ludacris used it wack, hey. Don’t get it wrong I’m not trying to dis Ludacris or nothing,” he explained. “He’s a great MC. But even though that style 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.”
Drake also addressed that particular flow in an interview with AllHipHop back in June 2010.
"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!”
That was a direct shot at Luducris, who said that line on the song "My Chick Bad" when he rapped, “Couple girlfriends and they a lil' crazy/Coming down the street like a parade, Macys.”
Now that Luda has fired back, it seems neither Drake or Sean want it with him.
In an interview with Seattle radio station Kube93 that came out after "Bada Boom" Sean was quick to back down.
"Are you sure it's about me? Because I didn't hear him say no name or nothing," Sean said. "I don't have no problems with Luda, I never did. I think he's referring to an interview I did over a year ago. I respect people who are ahead of me."
Drake has yet to comment publicly on the song.
