Drake is back in the spotlight, but not for his ongoing feud with Kendrick Lamar. This time, the controversy revolves around a leaked reference track for his 2018 song “Mob Ties” from the album Scorpion. The track, featuring Vory, has ignited questions about Drake’s use of ghostwriters and its potential impact on his legacy.

The reference track has sparked a heated debate among fans. Some view the use of reference tracks as a normal part of the music-making process, while others see it as a major issue for an artist of Drake’s stature.

The controversy gained momentum when an old episode of The Shop resurfaced, where Drake discussed Scorpion with Maverick Carter and LeBron James. In the clip, Drake highlights “Mob Ties” as one of his favorite tracks, expressing how the Pusha T beef reinvigorated his passion for music.
