Big Sean Responds to Ludacris “Bada Boom” diss track

Just in case you haven’t been paying attention over the last week let’s just bring you quickly up to speed on what’s been going on with Ludacris, Big Sean and Drake. Earlier in the week Luda released “Bada Boom” off his 1.21 Gigawatts album, which hits out in no uncertain terms at Big Sean and Drake, who Luda believes are falsely taking credit for creating the characteristic “Supa Dupa” Luda flow.

However, Big Sean is backing away from the situation, stating it was a misunderstanding that was blown out of proportion. Before we go into Sean’s explanation of the situation, here’s the track itself so you can see exactly what all the hype is about:

Speaking on U.S radio, Sean addressed the situation in some depth: “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.”

Sean continued with his explanation stating, “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.’”

According to Big Sean, Luda may in fact have used the style before him, but that was beside the point.

“I’m pretty sure it was done before 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. 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.”
