Drizzy always raps about being real, and in a new interview with The Fader, Drake’s holding true to his rhymes.

On Thursday, Sept. 24, The Fader published a new interview with Drake, 28, in which he directly addressed his nasty feud with Meek Mill from earlier this summer. The battle began after Meek, 28, alleged that Drake didn’t write his verse on their 2015 song “R.I.C.O.”

Soon after, Atlanta’s Hot 97 DJ Funkmaster Flex leaked a track given to him by someone in Drake’s camp for the song “10 Bands,” which featured Quentin Miller doing Drake’s part on the jam — which only bolstered the allegations that Drake used outside writers.

The Degrassi actor-turned-rapper was quick bring up the feug and allegations before even being asked by The Fader.

“I’m just gonna bring it up cause it’s important to me,” the “Hotline Bling” rapper said. “I was at a charity kickball game and my brother called me. He was just like, ‘I don’t know if you’re aware, but yo, they’re trying to end us out here. They’re just spreading, like, propaganda.”

In response to that tip, Drake told The Fader he recorded “Charged Up” later that night and released it the next day. The song directly referenced the allegations.

"Given the circumstances, it felt right to just remind people what it is that I do, in case your opinions were wavering at any point,” he said.
