Drake’s producer Vinylz has some shade to throw Taylor Swift’s way.
Vinylz, a producer who has worked extensively with Drake, took to Instagram yesterday to shade Taylor Swift. In the post, Vinylz posted a picture of his gold-plated plaque for “Midnight” featuring Drake and Cardi B, which won Record of the Year at the Grammys on Sunday night. “Ayyy @taylorswift13 finally got her first Grammy!” he wrote in the caption.
In response to this seemingly innocuous comment, Taylor Swift‘s fans flooded his comments with snake emojis—the internet’s favorite way to tell someone that they’re being shady as hell (same). To be fair: Swift has had beef with Vinylz before; she claimed in a deposition that he used her likeness without permission on multiple occasions.
Drake Throws Hatred At Taylor Swift
In the article, Vinylz explains why he thinks Taylor Swift should be more thankful to Drake for his success. He writes:
“If you read between the lines, it’s clear that she had a hand in helping him get there. And I think it’s only right that we take a moment to acknowledge this.”
Vinylz goes on to say:
“What I mean by that is when you compare her album sales and chart performances against Drake’s background and achievements are simply incomparable…She owes him A LOT.”
Drake is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, actor and businessman. He was born Aubrey Drake Graham in Toronto, Ontario on October 24th 1986 to parents Dennis Graham and Sandra ‘Sandi’ Graham (née Sher).
He is of African-American and Jewish descent through his mother as well as English heritage through his father.
Drake’s parents divorced when he was only four years old, leaving him with two brothers and a sister who was born after they split up. His mother later remarried to Jeffrey Raymond and together they raised Drake as well as their new daughter Anjulie Raymond-Barker. When Drake turned nine years old, his father passed away due to kidney failure; however this didn’t stop him from pursuing an acting career which began after high school graduation in 1999 when he landed his first role on Degrassi: The Next Generation at age 15.
