According to Paul, he didn’t realize JAY made the final cut until hours before Scorpion came out.
“[JAY[ was added on later. … I haven’t even heard it, actually. I’ve heard pieces of it. I’m even excited about what’s about to go down. Drake is secret with it because he can’t release nothing like that. I’ve heard pieces, I haven’t even heard the final final [version]. … Two of the biggest artists in the world on one of my tracks, man. I couldn’t believe it. It was amazing and Drake hooked it up. I saw a post that 21 Savage did where he was talking about how Drake is the only big rapper that always shows love to other rappers. That’s the truth. He really does show love.” (VIBE)
Paul also talked about sharing a Southern connection with Drizzy.
“I’ve been knowing Drake forever. He’s from Memphis, and I’m really cool with his father. Me and his father have the same attorney, we’ve hung out a million times. Real cool dude. We actually wrote a couple of songs together. We ain’t put them out yet, but we dibbled and dabbled with a couple ideas we’re putting together. He hit me up for a beat, which I couldn’t fucking believe. I got the message, and I was like, ‘what? Drake want some beats?’ So he hit me up for a beat, and it was a beat that me and my artist Twhy Exclusive produced. The song was actually my new single. Everybody’s been waiting on me to bring out my new single, but I was like ‘sh**, he can have this motherfu**er. Fu** that.’ Because I’ve got tons of beats, I can do that with my eyes closed. I sent it to him, and he loved it.” (VIBE)
A few hours ago, Drake shared an in-studio pic of his album’s tracklisting and had DJ Paul’s name listed.
Last night, the Toronto native treated fans to the project’s full tracklisting.
