Following the release of Pusha T’s song, “Infrared,” which supposedly was aimed at the “Hotline Bling” rapper, Drake sent Kanye’s record label, G.O.O.D. Records, a check for $100,000.
At the beginning of the day, Drake released “Duppy Freestyle,” and then went on to send Kanye and his affiliates the check for the sake of “promotional assistance and career-reviving.”
Drake took a screenshot of the invoice and posted it to his Instagram account. He wrote in the caption, “you’re welcome.” For further background, Pusha released his album on Friday, Daytona, and in it, the rapper accused Drake of ghostwriting his tracks.
According to the rumors, a lot of Drake’s hits were written by Quentin Miller, speculation that has caused Drake a lot of grief, considering many of his critics and fans won’t stop talking about it.
The 41-year-old writes in his track, “How could you ever right these wrongs when you’re don’t even write your songs.” The 31-year-old rapper, Drake, has previously admitted to being a big fan of Pusha T.
Reportedly, Drake even bought a microphone signed by Pusha T on eBay for $200. And this isn’t the first time the Toronto native has been in the middle of a feud with other rappers.
Fans will remember when he and Meek Mill fought for the longest time, and to some, it was because of Nicki Minaj. However, it isn’t exactly clear as to what started their beef; some think it was merely for publicity.

In the past, West and Drake were supposed to work on an album together, but it fell through. Furthermore, Drake and Kanye hung out in March and rumor has it that Drake was going to be featured on his latest album which comes out on the 1st of June.
And while all the drama between the men is eventful and entertaining, some on social media believe it’s all just for publicity and press. Because if they really were upset with each other, why do they work together?
