Drake revealed his own feud with music critic Anthony Fantano on Instagram on Friday (September 16).
The rapper posted the angry direct messages he was sending Fantano to his Instagram Story after the critic, who is a popular YouTuber, pretended to have received a vegan cookie recipe from him.
“Your existence is an easy 1. And the 1 is because you’re alive,” read the messages sent by Drake, mimicking Fantano’s style of checking 10s.
“And because you kind of married a black girl. I feel a light to decent sense of your existence.”
Fantano had previously composed Drake’s last album Honestly forget it a not good out of 10 in June. It’s unclear why the Canadian musician decided to send his rebuke to Fantano now.
On Thursday (September 15) Fantano – who describes himself as the “busiest music nerd on the internet” – released a video titled “Drake Slid Into My DMs”.
However, Fantano took the opportunity to parody the messages he received by sharing manipulated DMs showing Drake offering the critic a recipe for vegan cookies.
The video seemed to prompt Drake to share the real DMs, to which Fantano responded on Twitter by saying: “This b**** has shared the salty DM with over 100 million people [crying laughing emojis].”
On Instagram Live after Drake posted the screenshot, Fantano appeared to allude to Drake’s friendship stranger things Actor Millie Bobby Brown. “Why is Drake texting me? I am not 18 years old. It’s kind of weird,” he said.
He concluded: “C’mon dude you leaked your own DMs to the internet. That’s sad. That’s pathetic. I don’t even have a million followers. How do you let me get under your skin like that?”
