Though, Drake made a big wave with his latest single, Toosie Slide, Charlamagne Tha God doesn’t seem impressed.
During a recent episode of The Brilliant Idiots podcast on April 9, hosted by Charlamagne Tha God and Andrew Schulz, the two men expressed their honest opinions of the record-breaking track.
“I think it’s wack and I think it’s beneath Drake,” Charlamagne started. “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. It’s like, why be a surfer when you’re a fucking wave? I just didn’t respect it.”
The radio personality went on to address how the song’s push to be the latest TikTok challenge felt like a ploy to keep the chart-topping rapper at the helm of hip-hop.
“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 was like it felt too forced. Too corporate. Too industry. I just feel like Drake has built himself up into such a way that he don’t have to do that shit, man,” Charlamagne added.
Meanwhile, since Drake’s single arrived on April 3, the record has quickly shoot up to the top of the charts, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. “Toosie Slide” also gained a lot of momentum after becoming a TikTok challenge, just before the full song touched down.
