Back in 2009, Lil Wayne rapped on his “Ransom” freestyle with Drake:

“And me and Drizzy both wrote on Detox!”

This week, that line has finally been explained. In an excerpt from author John Seabrook‘s new book, The Song Machine: Inside the Hit Factory, he wrote that Drizzy worked as a songwriter for Dr. Dre​ in Los Angeles, specifically naming Death Row Records. Now this would put him back in the mid 90s, which would make Drake barely double digits at the time, so of course, this needed some clarification.

DJ Booth then reached out to Seabrook, who explained that Drake was 19 when he worked with Dre. So it would appear that he misspoke when he said Death Row, and really meant Aftermath. Either way, Drake himself confirmed his involvement with a few quotes in the book.

“It was some of the most strenuous militant shit I’ve ever done. But no useable songs came out of it. When I think of how he worked us, it’s no wonder he didn’t get anything out of it. It was just writers in a room churning out product all day long.”

That’s pretty crazy! You can purchase the book now here.
