Up until Tuesday evening, not many were familiar with the name Quentin Miller.
We later learned of him through Meek Mill‘s Twitter rant, where he named the aspiring Atlanta rapper as the man behind the pen of Drake‘s platinum selling album If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. If you’ve read the album thanks you’s and saw the co-writing credits, you also saw the initials QM show up more than once in the liner notes. Though Drake has remained quiet, his long-time collaborator Noah “40” Shebib spoke out on the allegations, and Meek Mill somewhat apologized for his actions. The man himself, Quentin Miller has finally spoke out about the rumors in a recent post to his personal tumblr page. Letting it be known of his contributions, if any, to Drake’s album.
Here’s what he had to say:
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, your destined for greatness”… Hearing that from someone that I’ve been studying since 2009, bar for bar…. Theres no way to describe that..
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?? 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…. 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 (Ghostwritter???) … 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 artist 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.. Im proud to say that we’ve collaborated .. but i could never take credit for anything other than the few songs we worked on together .. Thats all i have to say on it.. back to this 1317 shit… – Q.M.
