Since being accused by Meek Mill of using a ghostwriter, Drake has remained noticeably quiet. That was until tonight, however, as Drizzy used his Beats 1 Radio program to debut a diss track called “Charged Up”.
With each line comes a new jab directed at his one-time collaborator. “I did some charity today for the kids/ But I’m used to it cause y’all charity cases/ Six God is watching, I’m just hoping you prepared to face him,” Drake begins. “Niggas snitching on us without no interrogation/ I stay silent ‘cause we at war and I’m very patient/ Six God is watching, I just hope you’re prepared to face him/ I’m charged up, i’m charged up.”
In the next stanza, he raps, “I see you niggas having trouble going gold/ Come and live all your dreams in OVO/ No woman ever had me star struck/ Or was able to tell me to get my bars up/ I’m charged up.”
For what it’s worth, Quentin Miller, the man who Mill claimed to be Drake’s ghostwriter, publicly refuted the accusation. In a statement posted to Tumblr, Miller wrote, “I am not and never will be a ‘ghostwriter’ for Drake.. I’m proud to say that we’ve collaborated .. but I could never take credit for anything other than the few songs we worked on together.”
Update: Drake also debuted a remix of D.R.A.M.’s “Cha Cha”, which he’s dubbed “Cellphone”, along with a solo song called “Right Hand”.
