The Sticky singer – who boasts 243.7M social media followers – Instastoried on Tuesday: ‘That is for anybody getting 100 a show without delay… keep going.’

In 2016, Drake returned the favor by inviting the 53-year-old Big3 co-founder onstage the Kia Forum in Inglewood to perform Straight Outta Compton during his $84.3M-grossing 54-date Summer Sixteen Tour.

But two years later, Ice Cube (born O’Shea Jackson) indicated that the Falling Back star’s ‘reign’ might soon be over because he said most individuals only have ‘three years’ at the highest of the rap game.

Drake responded by referencing the Boyz n the Hood alum’s 106 KMEL interview within the diss track 8 Out of 10 where he rapped: ‘I been on top for 3 sets of three years.’

‘No, I’m not dissing Drake. Drake is an incredible artist. He deserves every thing that he’s getting, you already know, so far as being an artist,’ Ice Cube clarified to 106 KMEL afterwards.

‘I’m just taking a look at it from the industry. When you really have a look at the history. There are trend, but trends are made to be broken. But from my experience, most artists often have three to 5 years on the tip top of the sport before the industry [starts] searching for one other cat to switch them.’

The Amsterdam executive producer is next scheduled to perform on the Apollo Theatre in Manhattan’s Harlem neighborhood on November 11.

Drake can be up for six trophies – including artist of the yr – on the fiftieth Annual American Music Awards, which air November 20 on ABC.
