Ludacris had the web going nuts when he took shots at Big Sean and Drake, on the track “Badaboom” from his 1.21 Gigawatts mixtape, now Sean stops by KUBE 93 Seattle and talks to DJ Supasam and Eddie Francis about the record.
“Ya’ll sure the song is about me? ‘Cause I didn’t hear no name or nothing. I ain’t got no problems with Luda, I never did. I think he’s referring to an interview I did over a year ago. Literally over a year ago. But in the interview I said he’s a legend. I respect people who is ahead of me. I respect OGs and the Gs in general. The only thing I said–[the interviewers] was telling me about the “Supa Dupa” flow. They call it the Supa Dupa flow because on Big Sean my second mixtape I had a flow on there where I was using one word to describe another word in a punchline form.”
“I feel like Drake made it more popular on the song “Forever.” A lot of people thought Drake made that up and this was new, and Drake was like, ‘I could trace that back to Big Sean actually on his mixtape. That’s where I first heard it. I think that’s where a lot of emcees got it from.’ That’s what Drake said. So people was telling me, ‘This is your flow.’ And I’m like, ‘Alright.'”
Now Sean says he knows he wasnt the first to use the flow:
“I’m pretty sure it was done before Luda, but I’m just saying where it came from now. We talkin’ about now…I’m not trying to debate and say, I was the first to do this ever. I’m just saying that’s just where it was between us. So [some interviewers] asked me, ‘What’s a good example of the Supa Dupa flow and what’s a bad example of it?’ And I think I said Luda’s ‘balloons’ line. But I’m telling you this was over a year ago. I can’t believe this was something that’s been lingering this long…I don’t have no problems with Luda. I didn’t even know he cared that much, for a year, to be thinking about what I said in interviews…I think Luda is the best, I think he’s a legend.”
