Drake regrets namechecking exes in his songs
Rapper Drake tries to stop mentioning his exes in his songs because of the lasting impact on their lives.
The Hotline bling hitmaker said he has two regrets about his back catalogue, one being “disturbing someone’s life” by calling them by name or making obvious references to them, and the second being mocking older rappers.
Discussing his song Weston Road Flows, in which he raps about retiring at age 35, he told Lil Yachty on Moody Conversations, “Hate to hear that s***. I think sometimes when I say girls’ names in songs, maybe those are the two things that I look back on and think, ‘Maybe I could have done without it, taunting people for their age or age. disrupt someone’s life.’”

The 36-year-old rapper insisted that “the lyrics are never malicious,” but admitted that one of his former partners once called him about it and told him bluntly about the impact his words could have.
While Drake has “tried his best to stop doing that,” he admitted that it’s not always easy because sometimes he just needs an outlet for his feelings. He added, “But I also like to be honest in music. So that’s pushing and pulling.”
