Grammy-winning rapper Ludacris has finally responded to Drake and taken aim at Big Sean after getting accused of using the “Supa Dupa” flow pioneered from Kanye West’s protege.
Reports This is 50:
On his new “Bada Boom” record, Luda wastes no time in clearing the air and denying being a flow jacker. “I’m the truth in this booth and you n*ggas all h*es,” Luda raps. “Counterfeit rappers say I’m stealing they flows, but I can’t steal what you never made up b*tch/Y’all some duplicate rap cloning n*ggas/I manufacture you h*es put on your makeup b*tch. … Let me explain, nothing’s been new since Big Daddy Kane/Flows’ll get recycled, passed around to different names — Y’all get a couple hit records, make some noise and have the nerve to start shouting?/Who’s gassing ‘em?/ … May not like the way I used it, but you know you ain’t invent it, boy/Do your research before you make a claim so bogus that’s disrespecting pioneers in the game … ‘My Chick Bad’ went platinum, still winning motherf*cker!” (“Bada Boom”)
Luda has also reportedly been confronted about the record this week. Although Luda doesn’t mention names, it is quite obvious he is addressing Drake and Big Sean. When asked about the song this morning on Shade 45’s “Sway In The Morning” radio program, Luda didn’t reveal who he was going at on the song, but did want all the listeners to know he was only defending himself. “I don’t start these things, I finish them,” Cris told Sway.

And now…here’s what got it all started:
“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!”

And now…Big Sean:
“Don’t get it wrong I’m not trying to dis Ludacris or nothing,” Big Sean said. “He’s a great MC. But even though that that style that got so overused, there was a lot of people who did it great and there was a lot of people who didn’t do it so great. People always ask me was you mad that people took that style from you. I’m like, ‘Nah, that went and shows me how far I can go as an artist.’ I feel like I changed hip-hop. I haven’t even dropped an album yet. So that goes to show me how powerful my mind is.”
