Drake Rumored to Have Written Hook for Kanye West’s Song “Yikes”
On the latest segment of Hot 97's Ebro in the Morning, a shocking revelation was made in regards to Drake having a hand on Kanye West's new album.
The radio crew, which consists of Ebro Darden, Peter Rosenberg and Laura Stylez, took time to discuss the ongoing beef between Drake and Pusha T, as well as the relationship between the "Duppy Freestyle" spitter and Kanye. Whilst giving a harsh critique of the newly-released 'Ye LP, Rosenberg reveals Kanye's team "forgot" to list Drizzy on the credits for "Yikes," which he allegedly wrote for.
"It is now a confirmed thing that Drake wrote the hook for 'Yikes,'" he states, to which Kanye is given a humorous "Congratulations, you played yourself" soundbite. "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'... They didn't credit [Drake]. They said they, like, 'forgot.' They left him off! He doesn't have a writing credit. Interesting timing, right?" Rosenberg continues. The hosts then proceed to question the "Wouldn't Leave" emcee about his reported mental illness and unsettling slavery commentary.
'Ye has a received a lot of press since the release of his self-titled album last Friday (June 1). The night prior, the Chicago lyricist held a album-listening for several hundred industry insiders in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. During this time, 'Ye sat down with radio personality Big Boy and revealed he'd redid the entire album after going on TMZ.
"Cause also we know now, it's all headlines. Every bar can be used," he told Big Boy. "It's even bars that we had about [the slavery being a choice comments], I took them all off the album. It was just too sensitive to talk about that topic and stuff. I was like, 'Yo, Ima just chill right now. Let's just keep making some music.'"
