Lil B’s Producer Claims Drake Unrightfully Used One of His Beats on ‘Scorpion’
Yesterday, Drake released his highly anticipated, fifth studio album, Scorpion. The double-record was greeted with positive reviews from online communities, with expectations of a response to Pusha T’s diss track “The Story of Adidon.” No sign of that just yet, but one person in particular found something a little more pressing.
Keyboard Kid, a long-time acquaintance and musical partner of rapper Lil B, claims that Drake’s single “Survival” is similar to the song “I’m Tupac” which dropped way back in 2014. Kid took to Twitter to announce that while he “aint heard from em,” that Drake’s production team “coulda just came and got the original.”
Current production credits on “Survival” are given to No I.D and Noah “40” Shebib, as per Genius. Notably, both songs sample “Telex” by German composer Claude Larson, who is also credited on Scorpion.
Check out the tweets and songs below and let us know in the comments if you think Drake boosted the beat.
