In a recent interview with VLAD TV, Quentin Miller spoke on his co-writing efforts on Drake songs which he never recent not one penny.
Known for being in the mix of both Drake’s beef with Meek Mill and Pusha-T, Quentin Miller is best known for his “ghostwriting” label. Although he has contributed to many songs for Drake, Miller says he never received not one publishing check for his work.
“I never got a publishing check off of any Drake songs,” Miller revealed. “I never got a single publishing check off any songs. I had to feed my family off of getting paid under the table in that situation, cause Tricky and them wouldn’t let me go. I didn’t get out of that deal until 2019, 2020. I signed in 2011. They wouldn’t let me out. I had to let go of a lot of s*** just to get out.”
Nothing has come easy for Miller. Linking with Drake also took a “hail mary” text and one particular producer who took a chance on him.
“I had met Boi-1da in a random session in Toronto,” explained Miller on VLAD TV. “I just shot a random hail mary text to 1da one summer, maybe 2013 top of 2014. I was like can I send you some songs? He’s like, ‘Yeah.’ I sent him some songs. He f***ed with it. He was working with OB Obrien at the time. So he had me work with OB Obrien. And I guess the word from OB Brien moved on to Drake.”
From there on, Miller would co-write 4 songs off Drake’s 2015 mixtape “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.” “Used To,” “10 Bands,” “Legend,” and “6 Man.” Miller was extremely appreciative of working with Drake as he stated he “felt like he was on the team.”
Miller was a hot topic during the Pusha-T Drake beef of 2018. On Pusha’s “Infrared,” he raps, “How could you ever right these wrongs/When you don’t even write your songs?/But let us all play along/We all know what n*****s for real been waitin’ on,” alleging Drake indeed has a ghostwriter.
Drizzy would drop a response of his own on denouncing such claims, “And as for Q, man, I changed his life a couple times/ N**** was at Kroger workin’ double time/Y’all actin’ like he made the boy when I was tryna help the guy.”
