As Hip-Hop continues to mourn the death of Punjabi rap pioneer Sidhu Moose Wala, legendary rapper Drake, oftentimes referred to as Champagne Papi or Drizzy, recently remembered Moosa. Speaking during an exclusive Stake Livestream, the “OVO Unruly” remembered the times when he had conversations with Sidhu Moose Wala.
“I used to speak to him. Unfortunately, I never got the chance to meet him in person but we talked a lot… he was a great guy,” Drake said. “I have a lot of love for him.” he further added. In fact, the emcees were close and Drake has repeatedly expressed his concerns about Moosa’s controversial death.
Earlier today, legendary British rapper and songwriter Stefflon Don visited Sidhu Moose Wala’s home in Mansa, Punjab. The hard-hitting emcee, who has worked with Moose Wala on Steel Banglez-produced “47” and The Kidd-assisted “Invincible”, will further pay her respects to the legendary late rapper’s father Balkaur Singh Sidhu and his mother Charan Kaur Singh.
Drake is one of the several global rap stars to mourn the loss of Moosa. In May this year, Indian Hip-Hop royalty Divine remembered Sidhu Moose Wala during his historic live set alongside King at the Ahmedabad stadium. It was further followed by influential Nigerian-British rapper Burna Boy giving ‘PBX1’ his flowers during his London stadium set.
