DRAKE RELEASES 'CHARGED UP' DISS & MEEK MILL RESPONDS + MORE!


Sidebar: Damn, Champagne Papi done got all fine and whatnot! *waves* Heeey, boo! *wink*
At the close of Drake’s Beats 1 radio show, OVO Sound, yesterday (July 25), he decided to release a diss track titled Charged Up.

The diss track is aimed at Meek Mill in response to the controversy Meek started this week when he disclosed via Twitter (I mean how else do people communicate nowadays. *insert sarcasm and an eye roll*), that Drake not only uses a ghostwriter, but he also used a ghostwriter for his verse on the track R.I.C.O.

R.I.C.O. is a track that appears on Meek Mill’s latest No. 1 charting album, Dreams Worth More Than Money.

Interesting enough, both Drake and Quentin Miller are listed as writers on the song credits.
