Anthony Fantano heads to Drake Beef, what happened between them?
Drake revealed his own feud with music critic Anthony Fantano on Instagram on Friday, September 16. The rapper posted the angry DMs he sent to Anthony Fantano on his Instagram story after the reviewer, who is a famous YouTuber, pretended that he had given her a vegan cookie recipe. Your existence is a light 1. And the 1 is because you’re alive, the messages Drake sent said, mimicking Anthony Fantano’s style of checking out 10.
It’s more, because one way or another you married a black girl. I feel light to decent 1 in her existence. Anthony Fantano had recently rated Drake’s most recent album Honestly, Nevermind a ‘Not Good’ out of 10 in June. It’s unclear why the Canadian artist decided to send Anthony Fantano a reprimand now. On Thursday, September 15, Anthony Fantano describes himself as the ‘busiest music nerd on the internet’ and released a video titled Drake Slid Into My DMs. Regardless, Fantano took the opportunity to parody the messages he received, sharing doctored DMs that featured Drake offering the reviewer a vegan cookie recipe.
Drake feud with music critic Anthony Fantano explained
Anthony Fantano, a YouTuber who bills himself as “the internet’s biggest music nerd,” rarely has a good word to share about rap superstar Drake. Posting album reviews on his 2.63 million subscribers on TheNeedledrop channel, Anthony Fantano gave Drake’s most recent album, Honestly, Nevermind, a score of ‘Not Good’ out of 10 in June. Lately, he even made fun of Drake by uploading a parody video about him sending him a direct message on Instagram. The parody came to fruition on Thursday night, in any case, when the rap sensation sent his real DMs to Anthony Fantano in an Instagram story. “Your existence is a light 1. Also, the 1 is because you’re alive,” Drake reportedly wrote, ridiculing Fantano’s scoring system for album reviews. And because one way or another you married a black girl. I feel light to decent 1 in its existence.
It’s kind of unusual to see superstars come after their critics in DMs, especially since it never seems to work in their favor; however, Fantano didn’t exactly take the right path from there, posting the screenshots on his own Instagram. While the music critic didn’t respond to Drake directly on Instagram, he did have plenty of words for the rap star on Twitter and in an Instagram Live broadcast. Basically, what happened is that, for no obvious reason to me, Drake was in his feelings, as he usually is, Fantano expressed. That’s all his thing…he was a bit of a dissenter. A piquant little DM, very miserable and pitiful. On his live stream, he also defended the videos of him and said: I’m literally just offering my opinions on music.
Fantano did not continue. However, he smugly pronounced on Twitter, “That bitch shared the salty DM with over 100 million people.” She referred to Drake as “obsessed” with him, and was proud to leave the artist like “so many ladies of the past.” Fantano also considered Drake’s message a lackluster insult, since he didn’t hire a ghostwriter. Champagne Papi, aka Drake, still doesn’t appear to have responded to Fantano’s recent barrage of comments.
