So the Internets are abuzz with claims that Kia Shine ghostwrote Drake’s “Best I Ever Had.” Although he does own a portion of one of rap’s biggest hits, it appears to be because he produced the original Young Money joint that inspired it.
Take a listen:
As you can hear in the opening verse, Drake lifted the melody and a few words from Weezy. So Mr. Carter and Kia get a piece of the pie—BMI Awards and all. That’s how the music biz works, kids.
