Grammy Award-winning rapper Drake recently fired back at music critic Anthony Fantano. He fired back because Anthony allegedly leaked fake DMs.

Anthony Fantano Leaks Allegedly Fake DMs From Drizzy

“Anthony! It’s Drizzy,” the alleged fake message said. The YouTuber recited it in his latest video that dropped on Sept. 15. “I know we don’t really see eye-to-eye about music and that you are not the biggest fan of most of my albums (thanks for the kind words on Take Care and If You’re Reading This tho). But it is what it is, you know. Can always hope you’ll like the next one! But I’m not messaging you about your videos. I’m actually messaging you cause I found a really great vegan cookie recipe I’d love you to try.”

The following message included instructions on how to make vegan cookies, including the proper ingredients. 

“I’d really appreciate it if you could give this a spin and let me know if it’s worth trying myself! Appreciate you! Drizzy out!” the end of the message said. 

Drake Responds To Anthony

A few hours after Anthony released the video, Drake clapped back via Instagram stories. There, the Honestly Nevermind rapper shared the allegedly real DMs he sent to the music critic. The messages were reportedly in reference to Anthony’s rating system for his album reviews.

“Your existence is a light 1. And the 1 is cause your alive. And cause you somehow wifed a black girl. I’m feeling a light to decent 1 on your existence.”

Anthony Returns With Another Shady Response

After Drake’s response, Anthony took to Instagram Live to take shots at the six god. He called Drizzy “salty,” “in his feelings” and “obssessed” for knowing his rating system. The music critic even threw jabs the musician for allegedly using a ghostwriter. 

“Drake was in his feelings, as he does tend to be, because that is his nature, that is his vibe, that is his style, that’s his whole thing. Being in his feelings, that’s his brand, you could say…He was in his feelings Wednesday night, very late into the evening…It was a salty little DM, it was quite sad and unfortunate…A couple of things were running through my head…One: ‘Why is Drake messaging me? I’m not 18 years of age. That’s kinda weird.’ Second thing I was thinking: ‘This man is familiar enough with me to know my rating system. Seems a little odd, seems a little obsessed.’…The other thing that I was thinking is that, why did he say the ‘light one’ thing twice?…I don’t know why he said that weak a*s line two times. It also made me think, this is why he has ghostwriters.”
