A lot of people aren't fans of Drake's new dance album, Honestly, Nevermind and Irv Gotti is one of them. 

TMZ spoke to him about it on Tuesday, June 21 while he was at LAX.

 

“Personally, I love Drake," said the Murder Inc. exec. "I think Drake is a great person, he’s a great human being. But I listened to his album and Drake can do whatever he wants as an artist … but Drake’s new album is not Hip Hop.”

Gotti was then asked if Honestly, Nevermind represents the demise of Hip Hop.

"As long as I’m alive, it can never be the demise of Hip Hop," he answered. "I gotta get back in the game and find me a n*gga then. That’s what that album made me feel like. It made me feel like going and finding me a raw new DMX, new Ja [Rule], new Jay[-Z] and serving n*ggas and f*cking bringing back great Hip Hop ... I just wasn’t expecting a whole album of that sh*t. He’s too powerful and too strong, and it made me feel like we need another n*gga that’s as powerful and strong that’s gonna stay with this thing called Hip Hop.”

How would you respond to Irv?
