Drake – “Charged Up,” “Right Hand,” & “Hotline Bling”

Meek Mill set off a whole fireworks show of Twitter-controversy a few days ago when he accused Drake of not writing his own raps. Lots of people responded publicly to this: Drake’s producer Noah “40” Shebib defended his friend’s honor and songwriting abilities, Funkmaster Flex produced what is supposedly a reference track for If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late track “10 Bands” by alleged ghostwriter Quentin Miller, and Quentin Miller himself released a statement denying that he’s Drake’s ghostwriter (although to be fair, he’d be a pretty shitty ghostwriter if he just admitted it). But one conspicuous absence from the chorus of Twitter-voices was the central figure himself, Drake, who remained silent through all of this — until now, that is. It turns out that Drake was just waiting until his Beats 1 OVO Sound Radio show tonight to bust out a new Meek Mill diss track called “Charged Up.” Over a slinky, minimal beat from Maneesh, Frank Dukes, and 40, Drake lays into Meek and the whole controversy: “Rumor has it, there’s something that only I know/ Rumor has it, I steer this shit with my eyes closed/ Rumor has it, I either fucked her or I never could/ But rumor has it, hasn’t done you niggas any good.” Also: “Cops are killing people with their arms up/ And your main focus is tryna harm us?” Listen to the clean version below, along with “Right Hand” and a remix of D.R.A.M.’s “Cha Cha” (now titled “Hotline Bling”), both of which he also debuted on tonight’s OVO Sound Radio show.

UPDATE: Drake uploaded the whole show to Connect, so listen below.

UPDATE 2: Meek is not phased.

And according to this Instagram post by Funkmaster Flex, Meek will be airing his own diss track tomorrow at 7PM.
