Drake had everyone talking with his diss track “Two Birds, One Stone,” where he takes lyrical shots at Kid Cudi and possibly Pusha T. But another development arose, with Kanye West being credited as a writer, composer, lyricist and producer on the song.

Did Kanye actually assist in helping Drake lyrically diss his two good friends? Well, not quite.

The good folks at Genius were able to talk with Noah “40” Shebib, who co-produced “Two Birds, One Stone,” and he offered some clarity into Yeezy’s involvement with the song.

“Me and Kanye produced the track,” he explained. “I made it from some drums he had given me. Not quite the elaborate story the world is looking for.”

Although West is listed as “Lyricist” on the credits doesn’t mean that he wrote a verse for Drake. “When someone contributes to a song as a producer/musician they are considered a writer, as he is alongside Noah Shebib and the other musicians on the song,” said an insider with knowledge of how the “Two Birds, One Stone” was created.

40 wouldn’t confirm whether Drake was aiming his vitriol at Pusha T with the lines, “But really it’s you with all the drug dealer stories / That’s gotta stop, though / You made a couple chops and now you think you Chapo / If you ask me though, you ain’t lining the trunk with kilos / You bagging weed watching Pacino with all your n—-s.”

But at least the mystery behind Kanye West’s credit on the song has now been solved.
