Although Drake has yet to comment on Meek Mill‘s ghostwriting accusations, the man who is said to have contributed to Drizzy’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late has finally addressed the matter. Songwriter Quentin Miller took to his Tumblr page to offer an explanation.
Miller begins by recalling a phone conversation with his “idol” Drake last winter when he still worked at a bakery before he was invited to Drake’s studio. “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??” Miller wrote.
“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,” Miller said of Drake’s songwriting abilities.
Miller adds that he “took notes from the best in the game” and he was was taken aback to see his name listed in the album jacket. “They put me on the credits (Ghostwritter???) … He attached my name to something that touched the world,” he wrote.
Miller then declared: “I am not and never will be a ‘ghostwriter’ for drake.. I’m proud to say that we’ve collaborated .. but i could never take credit for anything other than the few songs we worked on together.”
