When asked in interviews about who his influences were when growing up, Drake has revealed that Lil Wayne, Jay-Z and many more, inspired him to follow his musical dream. However, Drake has talked little about the legendary group Wu-Tang Clan. That seems to be because he dedicated an entire track to them on his upcoming album Nothing Was The Same.
Over a rough sample of the Clan’s “It’s Yourz”, Drake combines his rap and R&B skills once again on “Wu-Tang Forever”, named for the Wu-Tang album from which the sample originated. Drizzy decided to change up the content within the track to more of a relationship song which has angered some hardcore Clan fans but not the Clan itself. Instead some Wu-Tang members have praised Drake and thanked him for the tribute.
Listen to “Wu-Tang Forever” below.
