Drake is a veteran musician, and he knows his worth – in fact, his influence is quite far-reaching and no one can deny that fact. Drake has penned many classic songs over the years, most of which are still played even today. That being said, it seems Drizzy has been accused of stiffing a songwriter, who helped him write some songs.
Drizzy is not only one of the wealthiest rappers out there – he is also the most generous. Time and time again, the ‘Certified Lover Boy’ hitmaker has given donations and randomly given money to fans. Be that as it may, it seems Drake might have forgotten to pay a writer.
While speaking with VladTV, Quentin Miller claimed that Drake never paid him for writing multiple songs on Drake’s triple-platinum album If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.
In fact, Miller was previously outed as Drake’s ‘ghostwriter’ by Meek Mill. Miller denied the ghoswriting allegations and clarified that he was credited for working on a “few songs” on the album. That being said, he still wasn’t paid for his work and barely made ends meet.
“It was really inconsiderate. It’s like I don’t matter. Maybe ’cause I was a writer, I don’t know. Even with [DJ] Drama and them, just throwing my whole life on the back burner just to get at a n-gga. But what about me taking care of my family.
I’m working with a n-gga that literally is about to change my life, even though I was in my horrible, horrible, horrible publishing situation with Tricky so I never got a publishing check off of any Drake songs.
I never got a single publishing check off any songs,” he added. “I had to feed my family off getting paid under the table in that situation, because Tricky and them wouldn’t let me go. I didn’t get out that deal ’til 2019, 2020; I signed [it in] 2011. I had to let go of a lot of shit just to get out.
“Even while I was in it, I never got a publishing check or nothing. I was just grinding, bro. I was grinding it out just hoping that one day that one song or working with that one artist is gonna change something — and that was the Drake thing! But it just didn’t change anything.”
We will have to wait and see whether Drake will even bother to reply to what Quentin Miller accused him of. By the looks of it, Drizzy likely won’t entertain the thoughts as he has much better things to do.
