Drake may be one of the hottest artists in the game, but it seems he’s decided to dead rumors regarding his writing ability as an emcee.
While celebrating the six-year anniversary of his critically acclaimed album Take Care, Drizzy wasn’t taking any shots as he addressed the rumor that his OVO signee and longtime friend The Weeknd penned his 2011 release.
On the post, a fan commented on the legitimacy of Drizzy’s bars, prompting him to respond with facts surrounding the written material letting that fan know that out of the 20 songs featured, only four of the songs featured The Weeknd as a co-writer.
“CO WROTE on Shot For Me and Practice, obviously was featured on Crew Love and The Ride and that’s it..there’s 20 songs on that album…don’t try me.”
Drake may be feeling nostalgic but last week fans received an impromptu glimpse of a new song that the OVO head honcho has been working on after producer Noah “40” Shebib posted a pic on Instagram teasing fans that new music was on its way.
The snippet which has since been removed featured a rough version of a song that indicates Drake maybe trying a new sound. According to Complex, the track was downtempo and synth-heavy with only a few full bars indicating that the leak was not intentional.
Drake has not commented on the legitimacy of the track.
