Drake Discusses New Album, Meek Mill and Ghostwriting Allegations in New Interview

Drake, who is out here killing the rap game right now, has finally opened up about his supposed "beef" with Meek Mill, and he also discussed those ghostwriting allegations. 

In a new interview with Fader magazine, the 28-year-old Canadian rapper brought up the Meek Mill feud before Fader could even address the subject. 

Drake began by saying, "I'm just gonna bring it up ‘cause it's important to me." 

He recalls the day he found out Funkmaster Flex was leaking his reference tracks. "I was at a charity kickball game—which we won, by the way—and my brother called me. He was just like, ‘I don't know if you're aware, but, yo, they're trying to end us out here. They're just spreading, like, propaganda. Where are you? You need to come here.'"

Drizzy continued, "So we all circled up at the studio, and sat there as Flex went on the air, and these guys flip-flopped [about how] they were gonna do this, that, and the third."
Drake says he recorded "Charged Up" that very night and released it the next day.
"Given the circumstances, it felt right to just remind people what it is that I do," he explained, "in case your opinions were wavering at any point."
But then, when Meek Mill, Flex and everyone else who had been dissing him never responded to the song, Drake became frustrated and confused.
"This is a discussion about music, and no one's putting forth any music?" he questioned. 
"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?"
After Meek continued to bash Drake while on tour with Nicki Minaj (but had yet to release a response dis track), Drake decided to end it once and for all when he released "Back to Back."
