Focused On Urban Issues, Nightlife, & Kenny Smoov
Over the weekend, Drake dropped his New Orleans-themed “In My Feelings” video, which featured a slew of celebrity guest apperances, fan video clips and Drake’s acting skills.
Though the video turned out to be the perfect culmination to the viral sensation, there were a few minor bumps in the road ahead of the shoot.
According to Nola’s own bounce music pioneer, Big Freedia, who also made an appearance, she said she had to reach out to Drake when he touched down in her hometown.
However, she maintained that there was no bad blood between the two, especially since he made good on the “Nice For What” controversy.
Freedia said the Canada-native made up for leaving her out of the video, which featured her vocals, when he asked her to pull up for a cameo in “In My Feelings.” Despite the fact that she had to initiate the offer, she said it’s still a step in the right direction.
“I decided to hit him up myself, and was like, ‘Why you ain’t let me know you in New Orleans,’ he was like, ‘I just got here, why don’t you come through, we’re shooting a video tonight, I want you to get a few cameos,’ so I did that,” she said, as she clarified the fact that there was no apology for the initial snub.
