Drake hasn’t officially responded to Meek Mill’s claims that the Toronto rapper doesn’t write his own verses, but he did release a new song on Saturday. Called “Charged Up,” the track finds Drake in angry mode – and could be read as a response to Mill, whom Drake had previously collaborated with.

“I did some charity today for the kids/ But I’m used to it cause y’all charity cases,” Drake raps in the song. “All y’all stare in my face and hope you could be to replace me / Snitchin’ on us without no interrogation / I stay silent ‘cause we at war and I’m very patient. Six God is watching, I’m just hoping you prepared to face him.” Later, he raps, “I’m done doing favors for people. Because it ain’t like I need the money I make off a feature.”

“He ain’t even write that verse on my album and if I woulda knew I woulda took it off my album….. I don’t trick my fans! Lol,” Mill tweeted on Tuesday. Drake is featured on Mill’s track “R.I.C.O.,” off his recent album, Dreams Worth More Than Money.
