Due to the COVID outbreak, Drake has referred to 2020 as “the toughest year in human history,” which has puzzled a lot of people on social media. The remarks by Drake were made in the brand-new Untrapped documentary on Amazon Prime Video, which charts Lil Baby’s remarkable rise.
Lil Baby’s chart-topping second album, My Turn, came released at a bad time, and Drizzy mentions how the 4PF rapper was unable to tour in support of the album because the COVID epidemic shut down everything.
“The hardest year maybe in human history that we’ve ever been through,” He states in the doc. “Forget music, just as a people, like, the hardest time to ever connect with people, relate to people.”
Drizzy’s generalisation finally incurred the wrath of the internet, with Twitter users reminding one another of other terrible eras in human history including the Holocaust and the Transatlantic Slave Trade.
“Drake said the pandemic was the hardest year in human history,” wrote one social media user. “Sir, our ancestors drowned themselves to avoid being taken as slaves.”
“Drake said in human history and 35 lol sir that one pandemic year couldn’t have been worse than slavery or the holocaust. The privilege,” tweeted another.
“Drake said in human history and 35 lol sir that one pandemic year couldn’t have been worse than slavery or the holocaust. the privilege.”
“Why would drake get on this documentary and say CORONAVIRUS was the hardest year in human history”
On August 26, Untrapped: The Story of Lil Baby was made available on Amazon Prime. The movie, which is a collaboration between Quality Films, MGX Creative, and 4PF, charts Lil Baby’s meteoric climb through the Hip Hop ranks up until the release of his No. 1 album, My Turn, in 2020.
Drake had a significant role in Lil Baby’s early success. The 6 God made a notable appearance on Lil Baby’s 2018 song “Yes Indeed,” and the Atlanta rapper has relied on him ever since. On DJ Khaled’s most recent single, “Staying Alive,” from his 13th studio album GOD DID, the duo most recently collaborated.
Drizzy and Baby have hundreds of songs together, according to a prior interview with Billboard. Baby also said that Drizzy encourages him to rap more forcefully during a recent visit to Atlanta’s renowned Icebox Diamonds & Watches jewellery store.
“But with Drake, I be trying to think about it,” Lil Baby said. “And that’s what makes it harder for me cause, like, I’m thinking. When I don’t even think, I just rap. So then like, ’cause it’s Drake, I get kind of like, damn…So I gotta make sure. Now it’s kind of like, eh.
“But my next album, I’m writing it. Every song, I’m writing it. So it’s gonna be more detailed. Right now, I freestyle, so only the top of my brain comes out.”
