Published Aug 06, 2015It's been all downhill for Meek Mill since he alleged that Drake used a ghostwriter, as he has been shamed with diss tracks, been mocked after releasing a weak diss track of his own, incurred the wrath of the WWE, and had his allegations dismissed by Drizzy's fans and closest collaborators. Things are once again looking bad for the Philly rapper, as an old interview had been unearthed that suggests that Mill himself used a ghostwriter.
This allegation comes from Toronto rapper Tory Lanez. In a HotNewHipHop interview from October 2014, Lanez claimed, "I wrote the August Alsina record on the Meek Mill album that's about to come out." HipHopDX points out that this presumably refers to the Dream Worth More Than Money bonus cut "My Niggas," which features Alsina. Though Lanez didn't write for Meek, specifically, the fact that he's working with artists that use ghostwriters is hypocritical, to say the least.
Apparently that's not the only behind-the-scenes writing Lanez has done. "I do a lot of writing," he said. "People don't actually know how much writing really I do. I did the latest shit for Travi$ Scott and T.I." He also claimed, "I wrote the Akon and Jeezy shit on his album." In other words, regardless of whether Drake and Mill pen all of their own rhymes or not, it seems that ghostwriting is everywhere in hip-hop these days.
Watch the interview with Lanez below. The relevant part starts at around the 9:40 mark.
Of course, we don't know exactly how much writing Lanez did or how accurate his claims are, but it's safe to say that, once again, things are looking bad for Mill, who probably wants to give Lanez a wedgie right about now.
