Shut them down, Onyx
Drake has expressed regret over using this line, telling AllHipHop:
Well, that [punchline] flow has been killed by so many rappers. And, I never want to use that flow again in life. [Laughs] I wanted to take if off my album, because I was like, "I shut em down. Onyx.“ I hate the fact that that rhyme is still in there. … [Lines like that are] all punchlines. Then a bunch of rappers started doing it and using the most terrible references in the world. I don’t want to offend somebody. I hate that rappers picked that flow up. I wish they had left that for people that know how to use it. [They go like] “It’s a parade! MACY'S!”
At that point, you never want to use it.
This shot sparked a minor beef with Ludacris, and he responded in “Badaboom”.
