When Drake won the BMI songwriter of the year award a few days ago in LA, Phonte of Little Brother was one of the few people Drake thanked for the honor. Now Phonte comments on the dedication and expresses his displeasure about the fact that Drake didn’t record a verse for his album.

You’ve always said Drake was your homie, and he stated in the past that he wanted you on his next album. Is that still happening?

To my knowledge, it’s not happening. We’ve made contact with each other but all of my attempts to make something real happen have led to a dead end. I saw that he dedicated his BMI award to me and while that was a very noble and thoughtful gesture, I’d much rather he had dedicated himself to finishing a verse for one of me and 9th’s songs. That, to me, seems like a more tangible way of showing gratitude. But with that said, I’m still a fan and I think he’s an incredibly talented artist. When ‘Take Care’ drops, he’s got my money.
