Quentin Miller Denies Ghostwriting for Drake in New Statement
Published Jul 24, 2015Toronto rapper Drake has had his whole discography in question this week. After Meek Mill called him out for using a ghostwriter, his producer Noah "40" Shebib came to his defence. Meanwhile, a reference track for Drake's "10 Bands" leaked online featuring the vocals of collaborator Quentin Miller. In a new Tumblr post, however, Miller denies claims he ghostwrote lyrics for Drake.
According to Miller's version of events, he happened to be in the studio with Drake while he pieced together tracks for If You're Reading This It's Too Late. While he was there and received partial credit in the album's liner notes, he claims he contributed "nothing" to the final song.
His post leaves us with more questions than answers. Why is there a reference track featuring Quentin Miller's vocals? Why does he have a writing credit on the album if he claims he didn't write anything? Why is he only posting this now? Who cares if Drake uses ghostwriters, which is a common practice with nearly every big hip-hop star?
