For reasons unknown to mankind, Meek Mill went on a rant earlier this week. Among many other things that made him look salty, he accused Drake of not writing his own raps. The whole situation was bizarre and must have put Nicki Minaj in a very awkward position – between her boyfriend, and one of her best friends in the game. Of course Mill saw the reality of the situation (and the light) really quickly and apologized to both Nicki and Drake.
Quentin Miller, the guy who was named as Drake’s ghostwriter took to his Tumblr to set the facts straight:
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…
Welp, looks like you were wrong Meek! Get your facts straight before going off next time. (Or maybe just avoid Twitter in general?) Meanwhile Drake looked unbothered as he participated in a charity kickball game in Canada.
