According to the Baltimore Sun, Ryeisha Berrain, who performed under the name Rye Rye in the mid-2000s, says the Canadian rapper sampled her saying “What?” on his song “Currents.”
One of her young ones first recognized her voice on Champagne Papi’s new project. While driving to school, the family listened to the artist’s new album Honestly, Nevermind album. On the trip, the 8-year-old son asked, “Mom is that you?”
Berrain instantly recognized her voice.
“Dang, Drake’s really got me on the record. Honestly, I was crying and smiling at the same time,” Berrain said.
The B-more club icon turned mom said that at first, she was proud that Drizzy used her voice, but after thinking about the whole picture, she became “disappointed.”
