On “Weston Road Flows,” Drake dropped a few bars, referencing Kevin Durant in the process.
“Used to have secret handshakes to confirm my friendships
Nowadays they just shakin’ my hand to hide the tension
A lot of people just hit me up when my name is mentioned
Shout out to KD we relate we get the same attention
It’s rainin’ money, Oklahoma City Thunder
The most successful rapper 35 and under”
This isn’t the first time Durant has been namedropped in a Drake verse. But, earlier today, reporters caught up with KD prior to Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals against the San Antonio Spurs to discuss his thoughts on the Drizzy bars.
“Yeah, it was something that kind of surprised me. When your favorite rapper puts your name in a song, it makes you feel like you made it,” Durant said. “Like no matter what you’ve done. Yeah, it was pretty cool.” Forget the fact that KD is a seven-time All-Star who won the MVP award two years ago, this is the moment he felt like he made it. Hey, to each their own.
