After what felt like an eternity, but was actually just a few hours, Drake finally broke the silence on Pusha T's extra personal diss track The Story of Adidon. But instead of the diss track the world was waiting for, he dropped a statement.

Obvs, everybody was disappointed that he hadn't retaliated as fast as he did with the initial diss song Duppy Freestyle, but the rapper wanted to address one main thing out of the many files Pusha T released.

That 'blackface' photograph.

Drake explained the context around the photograph and that it was taken in 2007 when he was trying to help address issues faced by black talented people in the industry.

"This picture is from 2007, a time in my life where I was an actor and I was working on a project that was about young black actors struggling to get roles, being stereotyped and type cast. The photos represented how African Americans were once wrongfully portrayed in entertainment."

Read the rest of the statement below.

Needless to say fans and foes are not impressed. Memes don't lie.

So to be honest, the statement is great for context or whatever, but the only response fans want from Drake is a diss track almost as good as Tupac's.

So... thanks for the statement, but you haven't said anything. The world is waiting.
