Young Money’s Drake covers the upcoming 100th The FADER issue and puts an end to the controversy surrounding his alleged ghostwriter Quentin Miller.
Instead of avoiding the topic, Drizzy admitted he sometimes keeps 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, rapper Meek Mill 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)
Radio veteran Funkmaster Flex fired off handfuls of shots toward Drizzy on social media last summer over the ghostwriter drama.
Quentin Miller penned an open message to defend his own image and explained his relationship with Drizzy on July 24.
