Drake‘s ghostwriting claims have not gone unnoticed and has resulted in rap veteran Andre 3000 taking a few jabs at Drizzy’s reference track-assisted hit records on Frank Ocean’s new album “Blonde”.
After a long four-year hiatus, Frank Ocean dropped not one but two projects. First, he released Endless, a visual album streamed on his site and Apple Music. The 45-minute black-and-white film was shot by Francisco Soriano and shows Ocean working on a building project while unreleased tracks play in the background.
His official sophomore album Blonde was released soon after. The highly anticipated project has music royalty Beyoncé, Kanye West, Andre 3000 and more as contributors. On “Solo (Reprise)”, Andre 3000 goes in for a full minute and seemingly takes a shot at Drake.
After 20 years in /
I’m so naive I was under the im-pression that everyone wrote they own verses /
It’s comin’ back different and yea that shyt hurts me /
I’m hummin’ and whistlin’ to those not deserving /
I’m stumbled and lift every word, was I working just way too hard? /
Yikes! It’s so good to hear from Andre 3000 again, but we know Drake is a little hurt by getting called out by a rap veteran.
