CelebNMusic247.com reports that Miller was thrust into the public eye when Meek Mill alleged that he ghostwrote a number of tracks on the release, prompting a beef between Drizzy and Meek.
These days Quentin Miller said that it’s “different” for him. He goes on to say “it’s pretty much taboo for me to even talk about it.”
Quentin went on to say the ghostwriting allegations turned his life into “hell” in an IG video which has now been deleted:
Unfortunately, I don’t have the good memories about it everyone has, my good memories were all murdered the day Meek Mandela… The day he put my name out there and just blew up my whole spot. That shit just fucked everything up for me, bro.
Here is the FULL explanation.
Winter 2014… I was just another guy working a job he hated with a passion for music…. And somehow found myself on the phone with one of my idols… I told him I worked in a bakery and his exact words were “Fuck that, you’re destined for greatness”… Hearing that from someone that I’ve been studying since 2009, bar for bar…. There’s no way to describe that…Most of the project was done before I came into 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?? 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 at 6 pm in NY… I witnessed him light up, go in and freestyle madonna…. I took notes from the best in the game…I remember him Showing me the thank you notes in NY before the album dropped.. Showing me the QM, telling me they put me on the credits (Ghostwriter???) … He attached my name to something that touched the world… When nobody would pay attention, drake saw something in me and reached out… Of all people… Drizzy… Two artists in exact opposite spaces in their career.. We came together and made something special.. 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… That’s all I have to say on it.. back to this 1317 shit… – Q.M.
