I am not and never will be a 'ghostwriter' for drake," quentin miller said in his letter. The piece, qm - who received writing credits on multiple songs, according to og maco - also recalls witnessing drake freestyle "madonna" in the studio and explains that he's admired drizzy for a long time. Challenge xxx: dirty via vimeothe center of attention in the conspiracy of drake's ghostwriting allegations, as fueled by meek mill and og maco, is an atlanta rapper named quentin miller. But while miller's name appears suspiciously in song credits for a lot of drizzy's recent work, it would seem, especially from past interviews, that the boy has a history of, at the very least, collaborating on his verses with other there's nickelus f, the rapper who helped usher drake into the game and whom drake himself cites as a huge influence and one of the reasons he seriously pursued rapping. Soon after drake's rise, rumors swirled of nickelus f providing more than inspiration, and during an interview back in 2010 complex asked him about it straight x: oh, so it's like sometimes you might help write a hook, or if it's part of the verse you might help start off a verse, or write some of the verse?

F: yeah, but it would kind of give it x: wayne spit a drake verse at the grammys. I didn't say in a vibe cover story around the time nothing was the same dropped, drake spoke candidly about the writing process for "connect" involving a "poet" named kenza helped me write on“connect” [11] is this girl kenza. Kenza samir, is the younger sister of drake's high school girlfriend nebby—the same nebby he raps about in "look what you've done" off of take care, which, one could assume, is how she started working with drake. She's also mentioned in several of drake's thank you notes in physical copies of his albums. It should be noted though, that in both the nickelus f interview and drake's own interview—where he brings up kenza of his own volition—the writing process is referred to as something of a more collaborative effort.

Similar to the way kanye's creative process has long been known to involve sessions where consequence or cyhi or whoever will end up suggesting a line or bar as he records that ends up making the final cut, it's quite possible that drake's raps are indeed, his raps. That's closer to how drake described it when addressing his rap process and nickelus f in his 2010 complex cover there other rappers you bounce ideas off of that may give you a line? After nicki minaj and taylor swift gave us an evening of drama better than anything hbo could produce, minaj’s boyfriend and fellow rapper meek mill went straight for drake’s neck, claiming the 6 god has a comparing drake to me too.... But while there are prime examples of ghostwriters being used, it’s usually never spoken about, and the top rappers in their prime — like drake, kendrick lamar, and j. The best song off meek mill’s recently released sophomore album dreams worth more than money, he named quentin miller as the real voice behind drake’s he said the dream girl shit on rico i thought he was coming at me lol then youngbull played me the verse ...

Meek mill (@meekmill) july 22, is a rapper out of decatur, georgia, who became affiliated with drake’s ovo label in late-2014. There’s no doubt that miller has been affiliated with drake and his crew, and his work with drake hasn’t been a secret either. Miller is credited as a writer on five tracks on drake’s mixtape if you’re reading this it’s too late including "10 bands," "6 man," and "know yourself. Photo posted by ryan silverstein (@ovoryan) on jan 2, 2015 at 2:54am big question is how much influence did miller have over drake’s lyrics? Even meek can attest to it — the intro on dreams worth more than money's "lord knows" has four writing of miller’s songs off his mixtape hey thanks a lot 2 called "cinematic" (produced by ovo producer and drake-cohort boi-1da) sounds eerily similar to drake’s flow.

While the rest of his soundcloud catalog doesn’t have the same vibe, "cinematic" raises serious questions about drake’s dependence on miller. But so far, meek mill has refused to show any proof that miller is really drake’s ghostwriter, and not just another contributor. Drake is one of two rappers (kendrick lamar) who has the catalog and potential to one day be called the greatest rapper of all time. Those types of artists don’t come around often, and using a ghostwriter this early in his career would throw a giant wrench into drake’s ascendence into the hip-hop pantheon. Not to mention the flood of tears that the internet would shed when it realizes those drake memes actually belong to a guy named 're no longer welcome in toronto, @meekmill.

Meek has started a civil war between young money (wayne, minaj), ovo (drake), and maybach music (rick ross, meek mill), which up until yesterday were the closest artist-driven labels in hip-hop. He’s already dragged nicki minaj and lil wayne into his accusations against drake, putting them in precarious positions. Rick ross already tweeted and deleted a shot at drake (ross had some trouble with the less than, greater than symbols). Unless he’s absolutely right, meek mill has messed up the money for a lot of people, and it won’t go over well with any of now, turn those tweet notifications on — this is just getting july 22nd, 8:30pm: a few hours after meek mill made his claims, hot 97 dj and perennial bomb dropper funkmaster flex released the reference track for "10 bands" featuring quentin miller rapping most of drake's first verse. While this still doesn't confirm that miller is drake's ghostwriter, things are not looking up for the 6 july 22nd, 10:40pm: drake's best friend and longtime producer noah "40" shebib went on a tweetstorm denying that miller is drake's ghostwriter, stating that he's only spent "maybe 30 minutes in the studio with q.

Shebib also pointed out that drake has written hit songs for other artists, and called him "maybe the most personal rapper ever," and someone whose writing skills should never be one can question my involvement in drakes career. Can't count the hours that myself and drake have spent writing producing and recording music. Noah shebib (@ovo40) july 23, countless number ones and songs drake has written for others never mind himself, thats the funny part lol! Noah shebib (@ovo40) july 23, even more ironic is that drake is maybe the most personal rapper ever.
