DJ Vlad caught up with Ar-Ab to get his thoughts on being named dropped in Drake’s lyrical response to Meek. Ab offered his guess for why the Young Money artist referred to him on the song.

“I got assumptions. It’s probably because I’m the top goon in Philly. [Drake] probably heard I ran sh*t out there,” said Ar-Ab.

The line also sparked speculation that Ab officially signed to OVO. He denied the rumors but suggested it could happen in the future.

Ab was asked for his opinion on rappers having other people writing their lyrics as well. The “Pocket Full Of Money” performer sees two sides of the issue.

“For me personally it’s all about an earn. It’s all about making money, right?” asks Ab. “I was already under the assumption these motherf*ckers don’t write their own sh*t.”

After revealing he would look at his favorite rapper differently if he found out someone else was penning his verses, Ab added, “Choruses? It’s kind of different than writing your verses. A chorus might be the topic of the song, but then on the verses, you write your perspective of it.”

Ar-Ab also stated he does not have any issues with Meek despite talk the two Pennsylvania representatives are not on good terms. According to Ab, he spoke to the MMG star a few weeks back and everything was cool.
