Drake would like to know…
There have been questions posed to me the last few days about the writing of Best I Ever Had and I figured I’d take the time to clear the air directly. I have never met Kia Shine or worked with him. I wrote the entire composition in Toronto and I borrowed one line from a Lil Wayne song that he produced the BEAT for. The claims of 25% ownership are false and for a artist to brag about splits on a song is distasteful to begin with.
… now please stop sending me that bullshit about Kia Shine writing for Drizzy. UPDATE: Kia Shine responded (after the jump) and there are a few pictures floating around the internets that debate Drake’s words. I’ll leave it up to ya’ll to decide. And for those talking shit like I won’t update because it’s against Drake can light up a cigarette in a pool of gasoline. I just never checked the comments to this post until now.
First of all, no one is bragging about it. Once I got the BMI award and it happened and it started to get out. I’m just giving the information about what happened…it’s been quiet. I’ve known about this since January.” But you know what really sums it up best? “That royalty check will be the best I ever had.” – Kia Shine
