Kanye West may have an ulterior motive for ending his feud with Drake - the 'I'm Upset' hitmaker is said to have been a ghostwriter on his new album 'Ye'.

The claim comes after Kanye, 40, called for an end to his public feud with the 'I'm Upset' hitmaker.

Hot 97 host Peter Rosenberg said on 'Ebro In The Morning': "It is now a confirmed thing that Drake wrote the hook for 'Yikes'."

Kanye's new record 'Ye' was released on Friday featuring collaborations with Kid Cudi, Ty Dolla $ign and Jeremih - but Drake's name was not listed.

Rosenberg claimed G.O.O.D. Music made the decision to leave Drake's name out of the credits.

Drake, 31, worked on Kanye's previous studio album 'Life of Pablo' on the tracks '30 Hours' and 'Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1'.

But Kanye and Pusha T became embroiled in a bitter battle of words with Drake after they accused him of using ghostwriters in their new track 'Infrared'.

Kanye has now called for an end to the feud, tweeting: "I've never been about beef I'm about love lines were crossed and it's not good for anyone so this is dead now (sic)."

In 'Infrared' - taken from Pusha-T's new 'DAYTONA' album - the pair referenced Drake's work with Quentin Miller on his 2015 mixtape 'If You're Reading This It's Too Late'. Pusha insisted this was in response to Drake "questioning his authority on the streets" in 'Two Birds, One Stone'. 

Drake fired back on his own track 'Duppy Freestyle', rapping: "If you rebuke me for working with someone else on a couple of V's, what do you really think of the n***a that's making your beats?

"I've done things for him, I thought that he never would need. Father had to stretch his hands out and get it for me."

But things got extremely personal, when Pusha T went one step further with 'The Story Of Adidon', in which he alleged that Drake has a son called Adonis with former porn star, Sophie Brussaux. 

In the song, 'The Story Of Adidon', he says: "Since you name-dropped my fiancée / Let 'em know who you chose as your Beyoncé / Sophie knows better, ask your baby mother / Cleaned her up for IG, but the stench is on her.

"A baby's involved, it's deeper than rap / We talkin' character, let me keep with the facts / You are hiding a child, let that boy come home / Deadbeat m******f****r playin' border patrol. Adonis is your son / And he deserves more than an Adidas press run, that's real / Love that baby, respect that girl / Forget she's a porn star, let her be your world."
