Drake Finally Opens Up About Ghostwriting And His Meek Beef In Detail

Drizzy also addressed those Quentin Miller reference tracks.

No doubt about it -- Drake and Meek Mill have had the year's biggest rap beef (so far).

It was filled with dis tracks, memes, presumed reference tracks and ghostwriting allegations. And while Drizzy has touched on some of these issues in his lyrics, he hadn't opened up about them in an interview... until now.

In this month's cover story for Fader, Drake addressed many of the questions surrounding his Meek beef directly.

“I need, sometimes, individuals to spark an idea so that I can take off running,” he explained, before also discussing the leaked reference tracks. “I don’t mind that. And those recordings -- they are what they are. And you can use your own judgment on what they mean to you.”

In the piece, Drake was also asked if there was a context for those reference tracks. “There’s not necessarily a context to them,” he said. “And I don’t know if I’m really here to even clarify it for you.”

Although he wouldn't elaborate further, the So Far Gone MC did speak about how puzzled he was that Meek would come after him.

"You guys didn’t think this through at all -- nobody?" he said. "You guys have high-ranking members watching over you. Nobody told you that this was a bad idea, to engage in this and not have something? You’re gonna engage in a conversation about writing music, and delivering music, with me? And not have anything to put forth on the table?

"I didn’t get it," he continued. "I didn’t get how there was no strategy on the opposite end. I just didn’t understand. I didn’t understand it because that’s just not how we operate."

In the interview, Drake also said he wrote "Charged Up" to remind listeners about his craft. And what about the scathing "Back To Back?" Drizzy said he wanted to squash the beef with "the song that people want to hear every single night." Why?

"It’s gonna be tough to exist during this summer when everybody wants to hear [this] song that isn’t necessarily in your favor," he said.

Beyond those dis tracks, Drake also addressed the beef on What A Time To Be Alive, his new project with Future.
