Quentin Miller shuts down claims he’s ghost­writ­ing for Drake

Cape Breton Post - - ARTS/ENTERTAINMENT -

The man widely sus­pected to be Drake’s al­leged ghost­writer has spo­ken out and de­bunked the claims.

Quentin Miller is­sued a Tum­blr post ex­plain­ing his re­la­tion­ship with Drake and noted that his con­tri­bu­tions to the Toronto rap­per’s re­cent record were al­ways made trans­par­ently clear in the song cred­its.

Philadelphia rap­per Meek Mill ini­ti­ated the con­flict with a se­ries of tweets ar­gu­ing that Drake “don’t write his own raps,” in­clud­ing the Grammy win­ner’s verse on Mill’s re­cent song “R.I.C.O.”

Miller has a song­writ­ing credit on that song, along with five tunes from Drake’s sur­prise “If You’re Read­ing This It’s Too Late.”

In his post, Miller writes that he was an as­pir­ing rap­per, mud­dling in ob­scu­rity and work­ing at a bak­ery, when Drake called him and told him he was “des­tined for great­ness.”

When Miller be­gan work on Drake’s pro­ject, it was al­ready mostly fin­ished, he writes.

“I re­mem­ber him play­ing it for me for the first time think­ing, ‘ Why am I here?”‘

Miller calls Drake the “best in the game” and re­calls watch­ing the Grammy win­ner ag­o­niz­ing over his rhymes.

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

Drake has yet to re­spond to Mill’s ac­cu­sa­tions.
