Mopreme Shakur Disapproves of Drake’s Use of A.I. Tupac in Rap Feud

Mopreme Shakur, a relative of the late Tupac Shakur, has voiced disapproval over Drake’s decision to incorporate artificial intelligence-generated verses of Tupac and Snoop Dogg in his recent track aimed at Kendrick Lamar. Dubbed the “Taylor Made Freestyle,” Drake’s move startled the hip-hop community, prompting reactions from various quarters.

TMZ reports that Mopreme Shakur sees Drake’s utilization of his brother’s voice as a contentious move in the rap battle arena. He views the A.I.-crafted song as a “nuclear option,” advocating for a more traditional, one-on-one approach to rap beef.

Expressing concern, Mopreme worries that younger music enthusiasts might mistake the A.I.-created Tupac on “Taylor Made Freestyle” for the real deal. Despite this, he purportedly maintains support for both Drake and Kendrick Lamar.

Drake’s “Taylor Made Freestyle” came as a swift response to Kendrick Lamar’s call-out in “Like That” by Future and Metro Boomin, marking the second installment in their ongoing feud. Additionally, Drake officially released the diss track “Push Ups” on April 19.

Reactions to “Taylor Made Freestyle” have been polarized within the hip-hop community. While some commend Drake’s ingenuity and calculated moves, acknowledging Kendrick Lamar’s admiration for West Coast icons like Tupac and Snoop Dogg, others criticize the use of artificial intelligence in music-making. Critics fear that such practices could dilute the authenticity of human-made artistry, raising concerns about the future direction of the genre.
