Young Money rapper Drake has confirmed recent speculation that he wrote his Alicia Keys record, “Un-Thinkable,” about labelmate Nicki Minaj.
“It is [about Minaj], I’m not gonna lie,” Drake told BET. “The concept came from a conversation that we had, or conversations we have. I wrote it based off two things: number one, based off that, and then two, based off Alicia [Keys] and Swizz and their situation and it just seemed fitting. It was like the perfect concept.” (BET)
Last month Dancehall HipHop told you that Nicki Minaj told Complex magazine that fellow label mate Drake wrote Alicia Keys mega hit “Unthinkable” for her.
“He told me he said something about me on a verse, but I didn’t think it would be anything like that. He let me hear it for the first time when we did Jay’s show at Madison Square Garden, the day before Wayne had to go to jail—that night he let me hear it on the headphones.”
