Atlanta producer DJ Drama has come forward to speak out on recently being accused of leaking ghostwriter reference tracks which helped ignite rap rivals Meek Mill and Drake’s summer 2015 feud.
According to Drama, he had nothing to do with exposing Drizzy’s ghostwriter Quentin Miller.
“I definitely am not no leaker of no records. The records that I put out, I put out records that people give me blessings to put out. I gotta lay that to rest. None of that sh*t was from me,” Drama explained. “My thing more than anything in what we’ve learned from the whole thing is how powerful social media is. It’s like The Force. It can be used for the Dark Side or it can be used for the Good Side. With respect to those guys, that’s not really my story to tell. They’re gonna have to tell that story. They’re gonna have to come and say what it was.” (Rap Radar Podcast)
Drama’s former love interest let loose on Twitter last November with endless accusations.
Recently, Drizzy admitted he sometimes kept people around him to help generate song concepts.
“I need, sometimes, individuals to spark an idea so that I can take off running,” he says. “I don’t mind that. And those recordings—they are what they are. And you can use your own judgment on what they mean to you.” … There’s not necessarily a context to them,” he adds, when I ask him to provide some. “And I don’t know if I’m really here to even clarify it for you.” (The FADER)
Back in July, Meek singled out Drake for allegedly using a ghostwriter on a collaboration.
“I was doing my album and I asked the n*gga to give me a verse for my album. The n*gga gave me a verse for my album. But he gave me a verse that he didn’t write that another n*gga wrote. Where I come from, I represent the motherf*cking game. I represent the motherf*cking streets. If you ain’t with me, you ain’t gotta act like you with me, I got the motherf*cking streets with me for life! If you came up from nothing, if you’re chasing your motherf*cking dreams, make some motherf*cking noise in this b*tch!” (Twitter)
