On the other hand, Drake is a veteran artist with a deep appreciation of his worth in the music industry. He wields a formidable and unmistakable impact, evidenced by his extensive catalogue of classic and evergreen hits that remain beloved to this day.
Drake has been mandated to participate in a deposition regarding the murder trial of XXXTentacion after an attorney for one of the suspects argued that Aubrey’s potential involvement in the case requires further questioning.
According to XXL Magazine, on Tuesday, February 7, testimony began in the trial for three out of the four individuals accused of participating in XXXTentacion’s death. After persistent efforts by Dedrick Williams’ attorney, Mauricio Padilla, to have Drake questioned in the case, on Wednesday, February 8, a court order was filed in Broward County Court. The order, signed by Judge Michael Usan, mandates Drake to participate in a deposition.
As revealed by court documentation, Drake was originally scheduled to participate in a deposition on January 27, however, he failed to do so. As a result, Judge Michael Usan has ruled that Drake must comply and sit for the deposition, or face consequences.

For several weeks, attorney Mauricio Padilla has pushed for Drake and other rappers to be called as witnesses in the XXXTentacion murder trial, citing a potential connection between Drake’s conflicts with XXXTentacion and X’s death. Despite previous unsuccessful attempts to subpoena the famous rapper and other musicians, Padilla’s arguments for Drake’s involvement stem from the public feud between the two artists. XXXTentacion was reportedly incensed after Drake appeared to use a similar flow from X’s hit song “Look at Me!” on the track “KMT.”
In the months leading up to X’s death, a cryptic post appeared on the late rapper’s social media that read, “If anyone tries to kill me it was [Drake].” Additionally, Padilla cites lyrics from Drake’s album “Her Loss” as further evidence of a potential connection.
