More conflict between artists took place Tuesday night following Minaj and Swift’s nomination strife, with her boyfriend Meek Mill dropping some inside information about the highly popular Canadian rapper, Drake. Over the course of many tweets, Mill revealed that Drake uses ghost writers for many of his raps and that it’s no secret in the industry.
The rapper went off on a mini-tirade, starting with accusing Drake of not tweeting support for his new album Dreams Worth More Than Money – which features Drake on the song “R.I.C.O” – because Mill discovered that he did not write his verse.
“Stop comparing drake to me too…. He don’t write his own raps! That’s why he ain’t tweet my album because we found out!” he wrote. “He ain’t even write that verse on my album and if I woulda knew I woulda took it off my album….. I don’t trick my fans! Lol” adding, “The whole game know forreal they scared to tell the truth! I can’t wait tok these guys and sit back and act like they don’t know!”
It’s apparently a notorious fact within the rap industry, with Mill later dropping names of other artists who know first hand of Drake’s dishonest writing, saying “Other artist know tho? lil Wayne and Nicki know ….. Ask em they gone act like they don’t see them tweets”
Drake hasn’t yet responded to the allegations, however a couple others have expressed their opinions on the rap beef. Long time rival Chris Brown posted a photo on his instagram of him watching the conflict with an audacious caption reading “for once it ain’t me.”, and Rick Ross declared support for Drake over Mill in a later deleted tweet, although Mill maintains that he and Ross are on good terms. Even the councillor for Drake’s home town of Toronto got involved, saying that Mill is “no longer welcome” in the city.
It’s making many people revisit Kendrick Lamar’s line in his recent hit ‘King Kunta’. Many thought the acclaimed Compton rapper was referencing when Kanye West was accused of using uncredited ghost writers in some of his older songs, detailed in Kendrick’s verse with: “I can dig rapping, but a rapper with a ghostwriter? / What the f*** happened? / (Oh no) I swore I wouldn’t tell / But most of y’all sharing bars like you got the bottom bunk in a two-man cell,” However with that controversy being so outdated and Lamar collaborating with Drake quite a few times in the past, tons of people are now asking the question – could the line be directed at Drake?
