Nicki Minaj Defends Drake as Pusha T Reignites Ghostwriting Claims
On Friday (May 25), Pusha released the track “Infared” — from his new album, Daytona — that once again brought up claims that Drake has used a ghostwriter to pen some of his songs.
“It was written like Nas but it came from Quentin,” Pusha T raps on the diss track, referencing Quentin Miller, who co-wrote songs from Drake’s 2015 mixtape, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.
Drake fired back at Pusha T shortly after with “Duppy Freestyle,” where he addresses the ghostwriting claims head on.
“Whoever supposedly makin’ me hits, but then got no hits sound like they need me,” Drake raps on the song. “My hooks did it, my lyrics did it, my spirit did it I’m fearless with it, yeah.”
Minaj chimed in on Twitter the following day, telling Drake haters that they need to move on from the ghostwriting controversy.
“Niggaz gon run that Quentin shit in the fkn ground like Drake don’t write 4 himself & OTHERS! Ya enemies will remix, reinvent & TRY 2make u RELIVE some old shit for YEARS 2 come when they have NOTHING ON U! Knock it off. Challenging the chosen ones only awakens the sleeping giant,” she wrote.
Along with Push T, both Drake and Minaj have new albums on the way. Drizzy’s Scorpion is set to arrive sometime in June, and Nicki’s Queen is scheduled to drop on June 15.
