Charlamagne Tha God believes Drake’s “Toosie Slide” is wack, stating that he doesn’t respect the artist’s new song.
Charlamagne Tha God isn’t about to bust out the “Toosie Slide” on TikTok anytime soon.
During a recent episode of his Brilliant Idiots podcast with Andrew Schulz, the radio host and hip-hop commentator went off about Drake’s new single, stating that he does not respect the intent behind the release.
“I think it’s wack, and I think it’s beneath Drake,” said Charla about the song. “I think that when you’re the biggest artist in the world, when you’re the biggest rapper in the world, I don’t like to see you chasing trends. Why be a surfer when you’re a fucking wave? I just didn’t respect it.”
“Toosie Slide” debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 thanks to a viral dance craze but Charlamagne Tha God thinks that Drake didn’t need to stoop to such a level to get himself another hit.
“The shit might still work but it just don’t seem organic,” added the host. “A lot of times with those TikTok dances, it’s just organic. It’s a song people like and somebody does something to it and it goes. It felt too forced. Too corporate. Too industry. I just feel like Drake has built himself up in such a way that he don’t have to do that shit.”
