Drake went undercover for Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday night so strangers on the street could call him “childish,” “not manly,” “an idiot,” “a chickenhead” and “not a real rapper.”

This year’s ESPY Awards host put on a beard and a wig to interview (above) some of his biggest haters and biggest fans, while asking questions that ranged from “Are you a Drake fan?” to “How do you feel about rapper Drake refusing to acknowledge Caucasian athletes at the ESPYs?”

The Grammy-winning rapper from Canada tried to give strangers subtle and not-so-subtle hints that he was the very person they were talking smack on, but they didn’t quite get it until he completely removed his disguise.

“What would I say to myself? Because I’m Drake,” the music star told a hater who called him an idiot. “I am a total idiot to be standing here, on this street, in this beard and this wig, when I know good and well that I’m Drake and I could be at home with multiple women bathing in champagne. But instead, I’m interviewing you. Oh, boy. Still don’t get it, huh?”
