Rapper Juvenile had nothing but praise for Drake’s recent re-imagining of his 1998 hit “Back That Thang Up.” Drake turned the former Dirty South club anthem into an R&B-ified slow burner on his album Take Care, which is due to be officially released November 15.
Juvie said he appreciated the tribute.
“I’m kind of flattered that it was Drake and that it’s an R&B song,” he said. “I never pictured it to be used that way but he did a great job with it, man. … We started going through the clearance process and stuff like that — and when I heard it I was impressed because I really thought that ‘Back That Thang Up’ was a hard song to remake. The fact that he took it somewhere else, I think it was big. I like that.”
