Quentin Miller Says He’s Not Drake’s Ghostwriter
Quentin Miller, the rapper who Meek Mill claims is Drake's ghostwriter, has finally spoken out. He posted a long message via Tumblr discussing his connection with Drake and If You're Reading This It's Too Late. "I am not, and never will be a ghostwriter for Drake," he wrote. He goes on to detail how he witnessed Drake "write/ replace bars 2- 3 at a time on 6pm in NY" and get high then go and freestyle "Madonna," a record off IYRTITL. Drake has yet to speak publicly about Meek's accusations, however he has been very active on Instagram. Maybe Drake will speak on it during his OVOSound radio show on Apple Music tomorrow. For now peep Miller's full post below:
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…. Theres 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.. Im proud to say that we’ve collaborated .. but i could never take credit for anything other than the few songs we worked on together .. Thats all i have to say on it.. back to this 1317 shit… - Q.M.
Funkmaster Flex released audio of Quentin Miller’s reference track of Drizzy’s “10 Bands.” Miller is credited in the liner notes as a co-writer for six songs on Drizzy’s If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late. OVO producer Noah “40″ Shebib recently responded to these allegations, saying, “If you’re asking if [Q] contributed to if you’re reading this… Yes, he did. You can also see that by reading the credits.” Meek recently explained why he went off on Drizzy.
