On his freshly released mixtape 1.21 Gigawatts , Ludacris assumedly takes aim at Drake and Big Sean on the track “Badaboom.” The DTP leader, who has previously spoken out on rappers stealing his “Supa Dupa” flow (denoted by one-word punch lines at the end of sentences), fires subliminal shots at the rappers on the cut for claiming they invented the style.
“Counterfeit rappers say I’m stealing they flows / But I can’t steal what you never made up, bitch! / Y’all some duplicate rap cloning niggas / I manufacture you hoes put on your makeup, bitch!” he raps. “Let me explain, nothing’s been new since Big Daddy Kane / Flows been recycled passed around to different names.
“Eleven years and still counting / And y’all get a couple of hit records, make some noise and have the nerve to start shouting?” he continues. “You lyin’ to yaself, just admit it / 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.”
Big Sean previously took credit for inventing what he deemed the “Supa Dupa” flow, which Drake later popularized in his rhymes
