Drake Officially Receives Credit on Kanye West’s Song “Yikes”
Kanye West has been known to tweak albums after they've already dropped, and now he appears to have given proper writing and producer credits for Ye two weeks after its release.
Initial news of Drake not being credited on Ye's "Yikes" song began circulating during an episode of Ebro in the Morning. Radio host Peter Rosenberg told listeners that Kanye's team reportedly "forgot" to credit Drizzy for the song's hook, which seemed pretty peculiar given the strenuous timing. "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,'" Rosenberg added.
Reports now show the "I'm Upset" spitter has been credited as both a lyricist and composer on one of the No. 1 album's standout tracks. Other notable credits from newly-released G.O.O.D. Music projects go to Pi'erre Bourne, who is listed as a producer on "Yikes," and JAY-Z, who apparently helped compose and write "Infrared," the first diss in the history of the brief, albeit legendary Pusha T-Drake beef.
All that aside, Drake appears to be in better spirits this week. For the first time since Push dropped "The Story of Adidon" in response to his "Duppy Freestyle," the 6 God has been spotted out and about. Last night (June 13), the Toronto triple-threat revealed the cover art and release date for his fifth studio album, Scorpion, scheduled to drop June 29.
While fans are surely expecting a response to Pusha on the LP, don't hold your breath. According to the Daytona emcee, the beef is "all over with." "I mean, you know. These conversations have been had and, to my knowledge, it's all over," he told Vanity Fair.
