Drake and Quentin Miller - BellaNaija - July2015

Earlier on this week, rapper Meek Mill called out Drake for not writing his own lyrics. Even though social media has had its fill with loads of memes, others still asked if Meek wasn’t crying wolf.

Although Drake hasn’t come forward with an official statement on Meek’s accusations, his alleged ‘Ghostwriter’ – Quentin Miller has. In a post on his Tumblr, he wrote;

Winter 2014… I was just another guy working a job he hated with a passion for music…. And somehow found myself on the phone with One of my idols..

I told him I worked in a bakery and his exact words were “Fuck that, your destined for greatness”…

Hearing that from someone that I’ve been studying since 2009, bar for bar…. There’s no way to describe that..

Most of the project was done before I came in the picture…I remember him playing it for me for the first time thinking “Why am I here?” like.. what does he need me for??

The answer is.. Nothing…

I watched this man piece together words in front of me…

I watched him write/ replace bars 2- 3 at a time on 6PM in NY…I witnessed him light up, go in and freestyle Madonna…

I took notes from the best in the game…

I remember him Showing me the thank you notes in NY before the album dropped…Showing me the QM, telling me they put me on the credits (Ghostwritter???) … He attached my name to something that touched the world..

When nobody would pay attention, drake saw something in me and reached out… Of all people… drizzy..

Two artist in exact opposite spaces in their career.. We came together and made something special..

I am not and never will be a “ghostwriter” for drake.. I’m proud to say that we’ve collaborated .. but I could never take credit for anything other than the few songs we worked on together ..

That’s all I have to say on it.. back to this 1317 shit…

– Q.M.”

Apparently Drake had already credited Quentin in his album credits. Hopefully that settles that.

    Permit me please *whose effing bidnes is it if he doesn’t write his raps* meek mill is just a pathetic attention seeker and too bad we’re making his popularity bar fuller by acknowledging him. Let us all ignore him already and move on! Who cares!!!! Looooove me some Canadian ice cream Drake 😀
