Drake responded to Jim Jones' recent praise of the Toronto rapper on his Instagram Story, over the weekend. In doing so, he shared a picture of Jim Jones as well as a photo of himself dressed as Jim Jones' Dipset partner, Cam'ron. Earlier in the week, Jones crowned Drake the greatest rapper of all time during an interview with Complex.
While praising Drake, Jim Jones also brought up Jay-Z as an option for the title, but argued that he "exited music a long time ago." Drake, on the other hand, is "still going strong to this day." The comments come after Drake invited Jim Jones and the rest of The Dipolmats to perform at his concert from The Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York, earlier this year.

"I would say he's the greatest of all time," Jim Jones told Complex. "I would just give that to him. And I mean, there's a lot of people from the beginning and people that invented Hip Hop, I know. But the greatest of all time, it's a big statement, and the relevancy that he keeps showing year after year, hit after hit, record after record. Any song that he has put out has seemed to go multiple platinum. That's never happened before in history."
He continued: "I mean, there are a few other people that do astronomical numbers like that, but he really in it, you know what I mean? From all angles of music. It ain't no place you go where they're not going to play some Drake records to get the party started. He moves around here like the real Bruce Wayne. He's my spirit animal, man. I just got to give credit where credit is due, and not taking away from nobody else."
