Quentin Miller gained much of his notoriety in the past year by getting pulled into the alleged ghostwriting scandal between Meek Mill and Drake. Hip-hop fans will remember Meek calling out Drizzy for ghostwriting last summer in an infamous Twitter rant and then Drake coming back with one his best songs to date, the Grammy-nominated "Back 2 Back."

Now, almost a year out from the fiasco, Miller has been opening up about his creative process with the 6ix God more and more. Miller sat down with Vlad TV to get into some specifics about working with Drake in a new interview clip published today (April 14). Quentin mantains that he never ghostwrote for Drizzy but that the two worked hand in hand to make the If You're Reading This It's Too Late.

"I'm not a writer and that's the interesting thing. To all the industry people out there and labels out there, please, I want y'all to know that I am not a writer," Miller assured Vlad in the new snippet. "That was a special situation that just happened to happen. It was an opportunity and we just happened to be on the same wave."

This was the same interview in which Miller admitted to getting beat up by Meek Mill's crew for divulging information about the collab. And even though he "shed blood at the Nike store" in L.A., Quentin is still grateful for the platform working with Drake presented him.

"It wasn't a bad thing," concludes Miller. "I still don't look at it as a bad thing. It changed my life. It was a great time in my life. It was one of the highlights of my life. I got an opportunity to work with one of the biggest artists in hip-hop."

With the past behind him, the young upstart is trying to carve out a name for himself as an artist and not simply a writer. Though he says he's "not opposed to writing and helping other people," Quentin wants to solely focus on putting out his own material in 2016.
