Rapper Drake’s ‘ ghostwriter’ denial
A MUSICIAN reported to have secretly written rhymes for rapper Drake has spoken out to dismiss the allegations, insisting he is no “ghostwriter”.
Drake’s lyrical skills have come under scrutiny after fellow rapper Meek Mill accused him of failing to write his own verses.
In a series of angry Twitter messages, Mill wrote, “Stop comparing Drake to me ... He don’t write his own raps!” He went on to claim Drake, who featured on Mill’s R. I. C. O. track on his latest album Dreams Worth More Than Money, failed to promote the project on social media after it was reportedly discovered that he had recruited a songwriter to come up with his lines. Mill later named Quentin Miller as the man behind Drake’s rhymes after noting the industry newcomer is credited as a writer on a slew of tracks on Drake’s latest album, If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late.
Drake responded to the attack by simply stating on social media, “I signed up for greatness. This comes with it”, and now Miller himself has broken his silence on the controversy.
In a lengthy blog post on Tumblr, Miller says, “Most of the project was done before I came in the picture ... I am not and never will be a ‘ ghostwriter’ for Drake ... I’m proud to say that we’ve collaborated.”
