Drake did some pen work on Ye

One of the interesting aspects of Drake’s Pusha-T diss “Duppy Freestyle” is the fact that he disses Kanye West as much as he disses Pusha.

Now we might know why.

It turns out that Drake flew out to Wyoming and worked on Kanye West’s latest album, Ye. And, according to Peter Rosenberg and Ebro Darden of Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning, Drake wrote on the album, more specifically on the song “Yikes.” Even more interesting is the fact that Drake didn’t receive any writing credit for his pen work.

Here is what Rosenberg said:

It is now a confirmed thing that Drake wrote the hook for “Yikes.” It may be the best melody on the album when you go listen to it. You’ll hear it now and go, ‘Oh, that does sound really good.’ [Kanye] gets a double congratulations in my opinion. They didn’t credit him. They said they like ‘forgot.’ They left him off. He doesn’t have a writing credit. Interesting timing to forget the writing credit for Drake.
