Now, the haters can give Drake back his trophies.
Meek Mill had the music world in a fury this week over claims that Drake didn’t write his own music. While most people didn’t really believe those slanderous lies, there were still a few folks questioning the musical talents of the great Aubrey Graham. Well, question no more. The man Meek alleged wrote Drizzy’s rhymes is now speaking out — In his own words, Quentin Miller says, “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 ..”
In a lengthy post on his Tumblr page, Miller goes into details about how Drake discovered him and told him he was destined for greatness.
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 “F*ck 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…
Are you guys happy now? Drake is still a beast and apparently a nice guy who helps out talented up-comers. Double win.
