Malik Yusef and T-Minus suggest Drake played Kanye West early versions of "March 14th."
Drake addressed the majority of the questions people had on his latest album, Scorpion. The Toronto rapper confirmed that he has a child on numerous records on his latest project. However, many are still wondering how Pusha T found out about Drake's secret child before the release. On Drake's album closer, "March 14th," he addressed everything Pusha T said on "The Story Of Adidon." While it could be assumed that Drake's song was meant as a response to Push, "March 14th" was created well-before the epic war of words between the rap giants.
Rolling Stone spoke to some of Drake and Kanye West collaborators about the relationship between Scorpion and Pusha T's "The Story Of Adidon." According to "March 14th" producer T-Minus, Drake had the song in the cut for a minute.
"I’m assuming [Drake] called the record ‘March 14′ ’cause that’s when he did the record... I never even heard the content of the song until the album dropped." He said, "It was something private; it was supposed to be kept secure. The information got out and I’m assuming that’s how Push knew [about the child]."
What makes this a bit more interesting now is that Drake may have played the song for Kanye West during a reported visit to Wyoming. 'Ye's collaborator, Malik Yusek, seems to confirm that Kanye heard early versions of the song which may have been how Pusha T got the ammo for "The Story Of Adidon."
“I was not there, but I do know that story: [Drake] played early versions of those songs and so on and so forth,” Yusef said. “You gotta be careful how you move, I think. Not I think, I know: You gotta be careful how you move, what you say to people, what gets out, and the whole nine [yards].” He added, "was it Confucius that said, ‘Often the thing whispered in the ear of your closest friend is heard 100 miles away by your greatest enemy’?”
J. Valle, who has production credits on the song, said March 14th was the same day Drake was heading to Wyoming.
"[March 14] is the day [Drake] played Fortnite, and then he’s like, I gotta go on a plane to Wyoming in a few," he said. "It’s also the day he went to Wyoming to see them, Kanye and [his] camp – I wonder if they heard it then?”
Despite working closely with G.O.O.D Music, Malik Yusef said that everyone should've paid more attention to the "unresolved issues" between Drake and Push.
It isn't confirmed that Kanye West leaked the information to Pusha T but it seems like many people suggest that was the case.
