Drake’s “Churchill Downs” Verse Was Reportedly Written In 11 Minutes, According To Lil Yachty.
Drake told Lil Yachty that he recorded his line on Jack Harlow’s song “Churchill Downs” under 11 minutes, according to Lil Yachty. The song is on Harlow’s current album, Come Home The Kids Miss You, and many Drake fans consider it to be some of the rapper’s best work in years.
During an Off The Record Podcast discussion with DJ Akademiks, Yachty divulged the information. He added that the entire verse was written right in front of Harlow while they were on a trip together “out there in the islands.” While the song has received a lot of positive feedback, PETA has called out Harlow and Drake for their support of the Kentucky Derby and requested them to donate the song’s revenues to racehorses.
The two rappers may be seen hanging out at the Kentucky Derby in a music video for the tune. Harlow informed The 85 South Comedy Show after the event that Drake had lost money by picking the wrong horses. “I just told Drake I would bet what he bet, so I copied him,” Harlow explained.
Regardless, he had a nice time: “There’s no price on meeting someone who taught you how to do it and having them say, ‘Yo, you’re awesome,'” he said. Yachty appeared on the Off The Record Podcast, which you can listen to below.
