July 26, 2015
Early this week Drake was accused of have a ghostwriter by Meek Mill, but then apologized to both Drake and Nicki Minaj a day later. Many were confused because there wasn't an immediate response by Drake-denying the accusations. But Toronto's finest has finally broke his silence with a diss-track titled "Charged Up." Although Meek's name was never mentioned, it clear who Drake is speaking of within his verse."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,”The freestyle track was done in classic Drake fashion. While offering hot bars over a slow and mellow beat, he also took a jab at Meek and Nicki's
relationship: "No woman ever had me star struck, or was able to tell me get my bars up.” Drake's attempt to take shots at Nicki, only adds to the bag of drama for Young Money...smh

When Meek Mill accused Drake of enlisting writers to help pen his rhymes this week, the Philly MC left hip-hop fans with more questions than answers. Then, when Hot 97’s DJ Funkmaster Flex played an alleged reference track for Drake’s “10 Bands” on the radio Wednesday, things got even crazier. Rappers with writers is nothing new; artists like Dr. Dre, Diddy and Kanye West are all known to have used writers in varying degrees. Still, for an MC like Drake, who is widely regarded as one of the game’s top lyricists, the accusations are shocking and could be damaging.
