Yesterday, Hot 97 and Beats 1 host Ebro Darden recalled a private conversation he had with Drizzy. “I told Drake that the rumor was that Eminem was gonna gear up to come after him,” Ebro said on his show. “He laughed. He was like, ‘That’s not gonna happen. He’d never do that and if he did, I’ve got something for him too.’ This was a private convo…That’s what he said.”
After the story made headlines and spread across social media, Drizzy appeared to respond to the speculation. “If they don’t have a story these days…🙄,” he wrote on Instagram.
Fans recognize that as a line from the Views song “9.” The complete lyric goes: “If they don’t have a story these days, they’ll make one.”
Eminem’s longtime lawyer, manager, and business partner Paul Rosenberg also addressed the conversation. “Slow news day I see,” he wrote on Twitter.
Rosenberg also retweeted a 2009 post from Drake regarding Eminem’s “greatness.”
Even Joe Budden got involved, adding “Slow news day” on Twitter.
