Cardi B and Offset Share Their Love Story in Rolling Stone

Posted by YeezysWorld on 3:13 PM

Cardi B and Offset are putting their love on the cover of Rolling Stone.

In anticipation of their first child together, the power couple opens up about their relationship and their daughter-to-be on their first magazine cover together. Writer Vanessa Grigoriadis traveled to the rappers’ home in Atlanta to speak to them as they embark on the next big chapter in their lives.

In the interview, Cardi recalls the moment she find out she was pregnant. When a home pregnancy test came back positive, she immediately FaceTimed Offset. “He was like, ‘What? Are you sure?’ ” she says. “I said, ‘Yeah.’ And then he just started smiling really hard.”

While Offset wanted her to keep the baby, her friends and team were apprehensive. “It was like, ‘You can’t do this. This might fuck up your career.'”

Cardi will hit the road with Bruno Mars in September, but despite her busy schedule, she plans to be a hands-on mother. “I don’t want to miss one second,” she says. “I don’t want to miss no smiles, I don’t want to miss no new movement, I don’t want the baby to confuse me and the babysitter.”

She wants to teach her daughter English, Spanish, and French, and the two will become best friends. “I’m going to tell her everything. Everything,” she says.

In addition to expanding his family, Offset is planning his musical evolution. He plans to drop more solo tracks this summer, including collaborations with 21 Savage and Metro Boomin.

Cardi on internet trolls: “These people who want to take food out of my mouth, and my future child’s mouth and my parents’ mouth – for what?”

Offset on Cardi: “We really love each other. She’s real. I wanted real. I also wanted successful.”

Offset on what he’s learned from Cardi: “That’s what I need to work on — my charisma in front of people.”

Offset on his career: “Everything has to be tight. It’s got to be a masterpiece like Michael Jackson’s, the same way he treated his music, his dance moves, his stage presence, his outfit, his hair, makeup, whatever it was.”

Offset on what they like to do together: “We work. With a day off, we’ll be in bed all day, just enjoying each other’s company. It ain’t about going to no movie, no dinner, nothing. We can go eat McDonald’s or Wendy’s. She might want a chocolate Frosty. We done so much bizarre shit with each other – rings and cars and chains. We got that out of the way.”

Cardi on Trump: “Every artist has explained how harmful he is. He has made divisions in this country – he almost made a crazy civil war between the blacks and the whites. He has proven himself to be a madman so many times, and proven himself to be disrespectful to women, and that still hasn’t gotten him impeached.” Then she adds, “Clinton got impeached for cheating on his wife, and it’s so clear that this ni**a has sex with so many porn stars, and he’s just been shown to be a dickhead, and it’s like, ‘Nope.'”

Cardi on why she supports the right to bear arms: “God forbid, the government tries to take us over, and we can’t defend ourselves because we don’t have no weapons. How do you think American colonizers went to Africa and it was so easy for them to get those people? Because they had guns. No matter what weapon you have, you can’t beat a gun. They have weapons like nuclear bombs that we don’t have. So imagine us not having any weapons at all.”

Cardi on exposing her child on social media: “My feelings get hurt when people online talking about family members. I think I’ll kill somebody if somebody talking about my child like that.”

Kyrie Irving Pens Heartfelt Apology to Kehlani

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:54 PM

Kyrie Irving has penned a heartfelt apology to Kehlani over two years after the couple broke up.

In his Instagram note, the NBA star said the apology is long overdue and shot down rumors that the singer cheated on him with PARTYNEXTDOOR.

“@kehlani I’m sorry, i know this is long over due,” wrote Irving. “I have to speak on this simply because I owe it to you and you deserve the world to see you for you and how beautiful you are inside and out, and not for the attachment to an emotional moment in time where we both had to grow up and learn about our hearts and our souls in a world that judges and adds on fictitious pressure, SN: And also add that we are public figures now on this social media monster of a platform.”

@kehlani I'm sorry, i know this is long over due.

I do not want anymore negative energy towards her in any way. She did not cheat or intentionally hurt me, she actually did something extremely noble & respectful, but the fact that it's still a lingering narrative is really outdated at this point and as I'm hearing about what people are doing to try and intentionally hurt her on my behalf is bullshit. The lack of understanding of what we went through has bred a lot of unwarranted things happening and I want my supporters to really let her be the great soul I know she is whole heartedly. I'm hearing people are showing up to shows and being disruptive while she performs and when it starts affecting real life progress, the shit has to stop. I am responsible as a leader to guide the young males who follow me in a positive way, & this is long overdue. We only try our hardest to be great humans and the fact that I can love her for how beautiful she is a privilege in its own right, I'm grateful. I want to see her and all individuals be who they truthfully are, unapologetically. #WeAreNotDating #Besties #BeenBesties #NeverStoppedNeverWell

During an interview at the MTV Movie + TV Awards over the weekend, the former Cleveland Cavalier explained why he decided to write the open letter.

“She’s an incredible person, and I don’t ever want to see anyone do anything harmful in her way,” he said. “I heard from her and other people that people are coming to her shows, and doing just really obnoxious things. I don’t ever want to see anyone go through that, especially a female like that, and you know, she’s incredibly special. I want the focus to be on her, her career, and that’s it.”

He revealed that he was actually with Kehlani the day he wrote the letter. While they remain friends, they are not romantically involved. “I’m for love, peace, and harmony. I really want to see the world be a better place, and if I could do anything to change that, then I’m gonna do it,” added Irving.

Nicki Minaj Covers ELLE: Talks ‘Queen,’ Meek Mill, & Sex Appeal

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:00 PM

The Queen reclaims her throne.

Ahead of her upcoming fourth album Queen, due Aug. 10, Nicki Minaj graces the cover of ELLE‘s July issue.

The “Chun-Li” rapper dons a Fendi belted coat, $8,000 cashmere fur, Alexandre Vauthier dress, and Stuart Weitzman heels in the high-fashion shoot, photographed by Karl Lagerfeld. “I wanted to cry,” says Minaj, who flew to Paris to shoot with the famed designer. “All I do is wear Chanel.”

During the interview, she opens up about her four-year hiatus and why Queen is the “best album of the year.” “Spiritually, I’ve experienced more growth in the last six months of my life, of my career, than I have in the last eight years,” says Nicki.

She also gets personal, dishing on her single status, ex-boyfriend Meek Mill’s legal case, and her sexy image. “Maybe I was naïve, but I didn’t realize how many girls were modern-day prostitutes,” she says. “It’s just sad that they don’t know their worth. It makes me sad as a woman. And it makes me sad that maybe I’ve contributed to that in some way.”

On perfection: “I feel like true icons shift music, uplift music, switch music, have the balls to take a chance. The things that people do come so easy to me. I could do it in my sleep. But I’m such a perfectionist that when something is too easy to me, I actually feel guilty. It would’ve been so easy to listen to all the trap music out there right now and say, ‘Let me just copy this.’ But I wouldn’t have been able to live with myself.”

On trap music: “The truth of the matter is, trap has taken over so much that even our New York rappers are doing nothing but trap songs, because they feel that that’s the way to make it. They’re rapping like people from down south.”

On Queen: “I really think it’s gonna be the best album of the year. I went through a moment where I got to know myself again, and then I went through a moment where I got to know myself as the rapper again. And then I locked [myself] in the studio and I didn’t want to leave. Spiritually, I’ve experienced more growth in the last six months of my life, of my career, than I have in the last eight years.”

On being single: “Becoming single was one of the things that made me feel strong and powerful. The fact that I am a young woman who doesn’t need a man for money. I don’t need a man for a job. I’ve never had to fuck for beats. I’ve never had to fuck for a record deal. I don’t have those pressures. I get up when I want, shop when I want.”

On selling sex appeal: “I just don’t know if girls who look up to me think that when I’m posting a sexy picture. I’m actually the antithesis of all of that. I’m more of, like, the snobby girl, like the ‘Uh, what’ type of girl. And I want girls to be like that. I’d rather you be called snobby or a bitch or conceited—I’d rather you be called that than easy, and a ho, and a slut.”

On Meek Mill’s legal case: “I know that when I went there pleading for his freedom, I know that [Judge Brinkley] spoke to me and was very sweet and maternal, and we both cried in her chambers, and she gave him another chance. So I don’t know what’s going on.”

Ariana Grande Reveals $100,000 Engagement Ring from Pete Davidson

Posted by YeezysWorld on 3:09 PM

Pete Davidson put a $100,000 ring on it.

As previously reported, the “SNL” cast member proposed to Ariana Grande after a few weeks of dating. According to TMZ, Davidson paid $93,000 for the custom engagement ring, which he purchased last month.

The VVS1 clarity 3.03 carat diamond is set in platinum and was created by New York jeweler Greg Yuna, also known as Mr. Flawless. It reportedly took nearly two weeks to complete.

Fas have noticed that the “No Tears Left to Cry” singer has been rocking the ring as far back as June 2, when she performed at KIIS FM’s Wango Tango. She was also seen wearing it at Kanye West and Kid Cudi’s Kids See Ghosts listening party last week.

After word of their engagement surfaced, Grande seemed to confirm the reports by responding to fans and liking engagement-related comments.

“I hope he knows he is maRRYING US AS WELL,” tweeted one fan, to which Ariana responded, “HAHAHAHAHAHH HES BEEN BRIEFED.”

Following Monday’s big news, the couple celebrated with a trip to Disneyland. Fans captured video of the two riding Space Mountain and some even took photos with the singer, who donned Minnie Mouse ears.

Pete and Ariana got engaged after dating for a brief time. Ariana broke up with Mac Miller earlier this year, while Davidson split with Larry David’s daughter, Cazzie.

New Music: Jaden Smith feat. Will Smith & Nicky Jam – ‘Icon (Remix)’

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:45 PM

Jaden Smith calls on a true “Icon” living, his famous father for the official remix to his gold-certified single.

Over the reggaeton beat, Nicky Jam kicks things off with some bilingual rhymes followed by Jaden’s spitfire verse. For his part, Big Willie plays up the “Icon” theme and even references his famous wife Jada.

“Boy, you know why you was an icon living?” raps Will. “You was born from an icon living / Messed around and married me an icon living / Tequila, then we made some icon children / You was raised in an icon village / Worked hard and raised the icon ceiling / One day I’ma hand you all the icon billing / And bounce, I’ma be an icon chillin’.”

In February, the “Fresh Prince” celebrated his son’s 100 million streams with a parody of the “Icon” video, which went viral. He can also be heard alongside Nicky Jam on “Live It Up,” the official song of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

“Icon” is a single off Jaden’s debut album SYRE. The 19-year-old MSFT is now readying the follow-up ERYS, due later this year.

Chance the Rapper, Migos, & Lil Uzi Vert Celebrate 10th Anniversary of Lil Wayne’s ‘Tha Carter III’

Posted by YeezysWorld on 3:22 PM

Tha Carter III turns 10 today. To celebrate Lil Wayne’s landmark album, some of today’s biggest artists are paying homage by recreating the iconic cover.

The original artwork features a baby photo of Weezy F. Baby with tattoos on his face. Now, as part of a Spotify “Rap Caviar” campaign, rappers including Chance the Rapper, Migos, Tyga, T-Pain, Lil Uzi Vert, French Montana, YG, Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Yachty, Trippie Redd, Wiz Khalifa, and more have reinterpreted the cover with their own tattooed baby portraits.

Lil Uzi Vert praised Weezy as a pioneer in the game. “When I heard Tha Carter III, I knew Wayne was the greatest rapper alive,” said the Philly rapper, while Chance the Rapper added, “Wayne remade the whole Carter III after it got stolen and leaked. So it’s two of them. Both versions are my favorite album lol.”

Quavo called the Young Money chief a “hell of an artist.” “Him and Hot Boys inspired me in many ways. Hot Boys influenced us to be a group,” said the Migos rapper, while Takeoff added, “Lil Wayne showed me to never give up at what you do best and/or what you want to do. Be you and never let someone tell you different, if it feels right it’s not wrong.”

Weezy’s frequent collaborator T-Pain reflected on their “Got Money” collaboration. “After ‘Lollipop’ dropped, it was my mission to work with Wayne,” he said. “Then I finally saw him pass by me when I was at the same studio he was at while he was still recording ‘Tha Carter III.’ I said, ‘What’s up,’ he didn’t hear me. I went back to my studio and bounced a hook I had just did, told my people to send it to Wayne’s room. He heard me then. ‘Got Money’ was born and I will be forever grateful for the long friendship that followed. Wayne’s influences on the rap game are still very much apparent in today’s music and, I’m sure, for many generations in the future.”

Tyga, who was previously signed to Young Money, recalled meeting Weezy at a studio when he was recording “A Milli.” “I remember being in the studio with Wayne everyday around this time,” he said. “I was really watching a master at work. Real superstar feeling. Tha Carter III was the icing on the cake. The rap game would never be the same after that. A million first week real album sales before streaming. One of the best times of my life was experiencing this first hand!”

In a 2008 interview with MTV News, Wayne revealed the origin of the cover art. “My momma gave me the picture for me to put on the album cover,” he said. “I don’t know where my momma found that picture. My momma, she gave me that and one more. If you would have saw the other picture, you’d be like, ‘She got too many pictures.'”

Tha Carter III debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in June 2008, selling more than 1 million copies in its first week before eventually going triple platinum. It spawned hit singles including “A Milli,” “Lollipop,” and “Mrs. Officer.”

Wayne is now ready to embark on the next chapter of his career. He recently settled his lengthy legal battle with Cash Money. As part of the settlement, his long-awaited album Tha Carter V will see a release.

“I can say that my client is happy,” said Weezy’s lawyer Ron Sweeney. “He is his own man, a man that owns his assets, his music and himself. At some point, Wayne will let his fans know what’s going to happen next.”

The Weeknd is Memento Mori.

The XO crooner is bringing his own radio to Apple Music’s Beats 1. While he spends late nights in Paris and learns French, he plans to share his discoveries and experiences during his new radio show.

J Prince Says Drake’s Response Would Have ‘Ended’ Pusha-T’s Career

Posted by YeezysWorld on 3:15 PM

We may never hear Drake’s response to Pusha-T, but one person who has heard it claims it would have ended Pusha-T’s career.

While promoting his new book The Art & Science of Respect, Rap-A-Lot Records CEO James Prince revealed that Drake recorded an unreleased response to Pusha’s “The Story of Adidon” that would have been career-ending.

“The ingredients was overwhelming,” said Prince during an interview with “Sway’s Universe.” “I know for a fact that it would have been bad for Kanye and [Pusha]. It just wouldn’t have been good. It’s beyond music at that point. It’s gonna effect the livelihood, it’s gonna interfere with his whole lifestyle from that day forward.”

Prince even spoke with Kanye and decided it would be best to not release it. “After even speaking with Kanye, ’cause I spoke with the brother, and he didn’t want this. I saw it going in a place that I feel would have ended his career if Drake would have put out the song that he had on him. And definitely would have hurt families. We not in it for that. That’s not Drake’s character. We not in business to tear our brother, fellow man down to that extent.”

Prince feels Pusha crossed the line when he attacked Drake’s mother, father, and Noah “40” Shebib on “The Story of Adidon.” “I feel like it crossed the line where music was concerned,” he said. “The disrespect for his mother, the disrespect for his father, for 40, a man that’s dying. I know these people so I felt that that was totally disrespectful.”

He continued to compare it to “pig mentality.” “Some slop finna be thrown. My thing is, you’re a pig, and then you’re a hog, and then ultimately you get slaughtered.”

Host Sway Calloway mentioned that Drake called out Pusha’s fiancée Virginia Williams on his “Duppy Freestyle.” “He mentioned her, but it wasn’t in a vulgar manner,” said Prince. “Wrong is wrong. If it’s him and he spoke on a man’s fiancée in a vulgar manner, then I feel like, ‘You wrong homie.’ You can’t do that. But this dude, he went above and beyond the call of duty.”

And while Drake’s response may exist, don’t expect it to leak. “I don’t think it will leak because [Drake] gave his word,” said Prince. “Me knowing Drake like I know him, he has a word. Until I see differently, I will believe differently.”

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:45 PM

Lil Uzi Vert and Rich the Kid came face to face in Philadelphia over the weekend.

In a series of videos, shared on social media, Uzi is seen confronting Rich while standing on a street corner. Uzi reportedly jumped out of a car before approaching the “Plug Walk” rapper, who stands behind a barricade. The details of their conversation are hard to make out.

It’s unclear what transpired next, but a second video shows Rich running down the street, while Uzi and his crew chase him. A bystander filmed the strange scene from her car.

A third video finds them taking their beef to a local Starbucks. Uzi seemingly throws a punch before Rich runs behind the counter during the melee.

Rich later posted a video of himself and maintains that he was unscathed. “Ni**as pulled up and did what?” he asked while holding up his jewelry. “Walk around Philly like this. Ni**as pulled up and did what?”

The feud was ignited when Uzi signed to DJ Drama over Rich’s label. Rich dedicated an entire diss track, “Dead Friends,” to Uzi on his debut The World Is Yours. Uzi responded with his remix to “Who Run It.”

Despite their scuffle, the rap rivals both took the stage at The Roots Picnic in Philly on Saturday (June 2).

Drake Reportedly Met Alleged Son, Spent Christmas With Him

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:46 PM

Since Pusha-T exposed Drake as a father on his “Story of Adidon” diss, more details are emerging about Drake’s involvement with his alleged son.

In addition to financially supporting his baby mama Sophie Brussaux and her child, TMZ reports that Drake has been actively involved since a paternity test confirmed he’s the father. However, Drake sources say no paternity test has been taken yet, but Brussaux claims otherwise.

Drizzy wasn’t present when the former porn star gave birth, but he has reportedly met his alleged son, Adonis, and has seen him multiple times.

Adonis was reportedly born on Drake’s birthday, Oct. 24. Additionally, they share the same initials (ADG) and last name, Graham.

TMZ reports that Drake has flown Brussaux and Adonis to be with him and chartered a private jet for them on Christmas. Brussaux posted a photo on Instagram of her and the baby boarding a plane on Christmas Eve.

The “God’s Plan” rapper has not publicly acknowledged that he’s the father, but Pusha-T brought it to light on “The Story of Adidon.” “You are hiding a child, let that boy come home,” he raps. “Deadbeat motherfucker playing border patrol / Adonis is your son and he deserves more than an adidas press run / Love that baby, respect that girl / Forget she’s a porn star, let her be your world.”

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:57 PM

Still simmering from his Drake diss, Pusha-T hit the West Coast for a performance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Thursday (May 31). Dressed in a pink denim jacket, the G.O.O.D. Music president took the indoor stage to perform his Kanye West-produced track “If You Know You Know” off his 7-track album Daytona.

Bathed in flashing red and blue lights, King Push delivered a cinematic performance, as a giant eye was displayed on the screen behind him, showing images of a cross and money.

While fans await a response from Drake, Pusha is plotting a tour with Nipsey Hussle. “We’re tryna make it happen around August,” he told Power 106’s “Cruz Show.”

Drake Addresses Blackface Photo, Pusha-T Responds

Posted by YeezysWorld on 1:45 PM

Drake is breaking his silence about the controversial photo of him in blackface.

The cover art for Pusha-T’s diss track “The Story of Adidon” features the Canadian rapper in blackface with a wide grin and was released in response to Drake’s Pusha diss “Duppy Freestyle.”

Twenty-four hours after the song dropped, the biracial rapper addressed the photo in a statement on Instagram, saying that the blackface shoot was from early on in his career and intended to serve as a commentary on race.

“I know everyone is enjoying the circus but I want to clarify this image in question,” wrote Drake. “This was not from a clothing brand shoot or my music career. This picture is from 2007, a time in my life where I was an actor and I was working on a project that was about young black actors struggling to get roles, being stereotyped and type cast. The photos represented how African Americans were once wrongfully portrayed in entertainment.”

He continued, “Me and my best friend at the time Mazin Elsadig who is also an actor from Sudan were attempting to use our voice to bring awareness to the issues we dealt with all the time as black actors at auditions. This was to highlight and raise our frustrations with not always getting a fair chance in the industry and to make a point that the struggle for black actors had not changed much.”

It was previously reported that the photo was taken as part of a Canadian clothing brand called Too Black Guys and their streetwear line Jim Crow Couture. However, both Drake and the clothing company have denied the claim.

The photographer, David Leyes, also released a statement in defense of Drake. “I’m proud to be apart of a strong statement made by a black man about the fucked up culture he is living in,” he said.

During his visit to “Big Boy’s Neighborhood” on Real 92.3, Pusha responded to Drake’s statement. “That doesn’t change my view at all. You are silent on all black issues, Drake,” he said. “You don’t stand for nothing, you don’t say nothing about nothing. You have all the platform in the world. You were so passionate back then? No you weren’t. That’s number one. That’s what I know.”

On “The Story of Adidon,” Pusha also alleges that Drake fathered a child with former porn star Sophie Brussaux. Drake is reportedly financially supporting both Brussaux and his son.

Pusha-T Talks Drake Diss, Blackface Photo, & Drake’s Alleged Son

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:43 PM

Hot off his scathing diss track “The Story of Adidon,” Pusha-T called into “The Breakfast Club” to discuss his beef with Drake.

Drake mentioned Pusha’s fiancée Virginia Williams on his “Duppy Freestyle” diss, which caused Pusha to get personal and come after Drake’s mother, father, and even Noah “40” Shebib. “That alone causes all bets to be off,” said Push.

He also explained the cover artwork photo of Drake in blackface, which was shot by photographer David Leyes. “I guess Drake took these pictures a little while ago,” he said. “They said it was his idea, something he wanted to do.”

On his diss, Pusha claims Drake fathered a child with former porn star Sophie Brussaux, and that his upcoming adidas line is called Adidon, named after his alleged son Adonis. “Who rolls out their child with a sweatsuit? Get out of here. What are you doing?” he said. “We couldn’t know about your child until you start selling sweatsuits and sneakers?”

Pusha also calls out Drake for being a “deadbeat” father, which didn’t sit well with Push. “I’m big on kids, for real,” he added. “I don’t hang with my friends who got child support issues. You can’t ball with me, you can’t do that.”

Additionally, Push took shots at Drake’s longtime producer Noah “40” Shebib, who is battling M.S. When told it was World M.S. Day, Push wasn’t fazed. “Wow, that’s ironic. I’m here for the spirit, but when it gets personal, it gets personal.”

But that doesn’t mean he thinks he went too far. “No, not at all. I definitely didn’t go too far with anything.”

And if and when Drake responds, Pusha is ready. “I’m prepared for everything.”

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:45 PM

Eminem wants to make his relationship with Nicki Minaj official.

Last week, Nicki ignited the ‘Gram when she jokingly told a fan that she was dating the rapper, who she name checks on YG’s “Big Bank.” “Told’em I met Slim Shady / Bagged an Em / Once he go black, he’ll be back again,” she raps on the DJ Mustard-produced track.

Eminem joined the flirty exchange, responding to Nicki in an Instagram comment. “girl you know it’s true,” he said when asked if the two were a couple.

Nicki played into the romance rumors with her response. “babe I thought we were gonna keep it on the low til the wedding,” she told Slim Shady. “Yikes. I’ll talk to you when I get home.”

But it’s not over. Em reignited the conversation at Boston Calling on Sunday (May 27). During his closing set, the Detroit rapper shouted out his “Roman’s Revenge” collaborator by asking concertgoers to weigh in on their dating prospects.

“So wait, one more time. Let me make sure so I can actually make this official,” he said, before asking, “How many people in Boston want me to date Nicki Minaj?”

The crowd responded with roaring applause. “Well, god dammit, me too,” added Em. “Nicki, if you get this message, just text me later, we’ll talk about it.”

Nicki caught wind of Em’s comments, and suggested they link up on her upcoming album Queen, due Aug. 15. “LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. The fact that he’s silly & a goof just like me😩. Love him so much,” she said. “Em we need you on the #Queen album. That’s where our 1st date will be; at the studio while I gaze into ur beautiful eyes as u write ur verse.”

Nicki Minaj Defends Drake After Pusha-T Diss

Posted by YeezysWorld on 2:48 PM

Nicki Minaj is coming to Drake’s defense.

In the wake of his feud with Pusha-T, Drizzy’s Young Money labelmate has a message for critics who question his pen game.

“Niggaz gon run that Quentin shit in the fkn ground like Drake don’t write 4 himself & OTHERS!” wrote Nicki, who added the hashtag #YMOE (Young Money Over Everything). “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.”

Drake responded to her comment on Instagram, adding shrug, lightbulb, and blue heart emojis.

Quentin Miller, who allegedly ghostwrote for Drake, has been cited by Meek Mill and most recently, Pusha-T. On his song “Infrared,” Pusha raps: “It was written like Nas, but it came from Quentin.”

Drake responded with a scathing diss track called “Duppy Freestyle,” on which he addressed Miller. “And as for Q, man, I changed his life a couple times,” he raps. “Ni**a was at Kroger working double time / Y’all actin’ like he made the boy when I was tryna help the guy.”

Nicki remained quiet during Drake’s beef with Meek Mill, who she was dating at the time. However, she later explained why she chose to stay out of it. “It was one of the hardest parts of my career to date ever,” she told Zane Lowe. “At the time, I did love both of them. I couldn’t erase the love I had for my team but I also couldn’t speak out, couldn’t say much. I felt so imprisoned in that moment.”

She added, “It was difficult to stay out of it. I was behind the scenes, of course, wishing it never happened…I tried to stop it from happening. I said, ‘Don’t do that.’ But as artists, we all look back on things we shouldn’t have done. That’s one of those things [Meek] shouldn’t have done. I told him before he did it but he did it. I know both Meek and Drake have both moved on from that, from the anger, and all of that stuff. We all have moved on.”

Quentin Miller Corrects Drake’s Kroger Line on ‘Duppy Freestyle’

Posted by YeezysWorld on 1:54 PM

In the wake of Drake’s Pusha-T diss “Duppy Freestyle,” Quentin Miller is weighing in with his response.

On the track, Drake makes reference to his alleged ghostwriter. “And as for Q, man, I changed his life a couple times,” he raps. “Ni**a was at Kroger working double time / Y’all actin’ like he made the boy when I was tryna help the guy.”

The line was inspired by Pusha’s lyrics on “Infrared,” on which he name checks Miller: “It was written like Nas, but it came from Quentin.”

After hearing “Duppy,” Miller responded by correcting Drake, saying he worked at a Publix supermarket and not Kroger. “It was a publix actually…” he tweeted before plugging his new project Crshd Files, Vol. 2 Wdng Crshrs.

Miller was cited by Meek Mill as a ghostwriter behind Drake’s hits including “Started From the Bottom” and their Dreams Worth More Than Money collaboration “R.I.C.O.”

Once “Duppy Freestyle” dropped, Pusha responded via Twitter by referencing Drake’s lyrics: “Tell ‘Ye we got an invoice coming to you / Considering that we just sold another 20 for you.”

Drake shot back with an invoice to G.O.O.D. Music/Def Jam for $100,000 for “promotional assistance and career reviving.”
