Drake Clarifies Pimp C Self-Comparison, Claims UGK As Extended Family
In a response given to MTV News, Drake had this to say, “I'm a huge Pimp [C] fan. I feel like I'm extended UGK family. Bun and Pimp are like uncles, dads to me…. It's just seeing a bit of them in myself; by no means did I mean to offend. I heard it was somebody upset about me making that reference. I think it was somebody in his family or something. But I never mean any disrespect. I love Rap. ‘Young Sweet Jones’ is just a little nickname.”
Drizzy goes on to say that the name was in fact conferred upon him by people who were aware of his love for UGK and Houston and that he simply took the name and ran with it. Read the full statement at MTV.com here.
