Drake Responds to Meek Mill’s Ghostwriter Allegations with Diss Track ‘Charged Up’.

Hip-hop star Drake has hit back at charges he relies on ghostwriters for his songs, releasing a new track dissing his accuser which quickly went viral online.

‘Charged Up’ was premiered on Drake’s Beats 1 show and sees the rapper address a controversial week which saw Mill claim that Drake uses a ghostwriter and radio DJ’s leaking demo tracks of his material with another rapper’s voice on.Drake released “Charged Up” on Saturday night, a response to Meek Mill’s claims earlier in the week that the Toronto rapper didn’t write his own rhymes. Fellow rapper Meek Mill recently took to Twitter to accuse Drake of not writing his own songs and suggested that the Toronto-born artist retaliated for his knowledge of the secret by not promoting Mill’s work.

So what did Mill think of the song? “I did some charity today for the kids/ But I’m used to it cause y’all charity cases,” Drake rapped on the song. “All y’all stare in my face and hope you could be to replace me / Snitchin’ on us without no interrogation / I stay silent ‘cause we at war and I’m very patient. You see, the two had recently collaborated on the Meek Mill single “R.I.C.O.,” and Meek seemed a bit salty that Drake hadn’t promoted the tune on his social media, so he accused him of using a ghostwriter on the tune and faking his raps: In a tweet that’s since been deleted, Rick Ross took time out of his busy schedule of dealing with 50 Cent’s trolling and allegedly pistol-whipping the help to side with Drizzy, while Chris Brown clowned his longtime nemesis with a meme posted to Instagram (that’s also been deleted). Drake — whose latest mix tape topped the US album chart and who recently headlined major festivals including Coachella — broke his silence late Saturday to respond in verse with a diss song entitled “Charged Up.” “I seen it all coming… ‘cause it ain’t like I need the money I make off a feature,” Drake said, presumably explaining why he did not promote Mill’s album.

Other rap world luminaries weighed in as well, including longtime Drake collaborator Noah “40” Shebib, who rose to his man’s defense, and DJ Funkmaster Flex, who’s apparently lost his mind. Referring to recent police killings of African Americans that have provoked outrage, Drake raps, “Cops are killing people with their arms up / And your main focus is trying to harm us?” Drake referred to his Apple collaboration in “Charged Up” as a way to tell Mill that he has been successful. And the message is clear: Drake isn’t going to stand for the possibly reputation damaging allegations, but he’s not going to sink down to Mill’s juvenile level.

Drake’s long time producer Noah ’40’ Shebib also moved to defend Drake after Meek Mill and Funkmaster Flex’s allegations and posted a series of tweets about their songwriting process. This isn’t the first time Drake has had to deal with being called out both in a song and on social media (anyone remember the Chris Brown mishap?), and it certainly won’t be the last. But like other great hip-hop artists that have come before him -from Tupac to Jay Z- Drake’s decision to remain relatively quiet about the confounding accusation until he was able to express all of his thoughts on the most powerful medium available to him is what separates him from the rest of the boys. “Easter egg hunting cause they looking for something.
