Lil Yachty Reveals How Drake Wrote His “Churchill Downs” Verse In Just 11 Minutes
Lil Yachty says that Drake recorded his verse on Jack Harlow’s “Churchill Downs” in under 11 minutes. The song is on Harlow’s most recent album, Come Home The Kids Miss You, and many Drake fans consider it to be some of his 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 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.
“I just told Drake I would bet what he bet, so I copied him,” Harlow said.
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 dope,'” he said.
