Quentin Miller opened up a bit more about his history with Drake. Miller was thrust into the spotlight last summer after Drake’s rival, Meek Mill, accused the Toronto rapper of using a ghostwriter.
In an interview with VladTV Thursday, Miller said he doesn’t want to be referred to as a “writer,” explaining that working with Drake was simply a “special opportunity.” The pair collaborated on Drake’s 2015 mixtape, “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.”
“Musically, we were in the same mind-set,” Miller said. “We worked on a project together, and that’s that.”
Miller told the outlet that he met Drake through a mutual friend, but refused to elaborate on the extent of their collaboration: “We worked together, that’s all I’m gonna say.”
Miller said: “It changed my life. It was a great time in my life. It was one of the highlights of my life. I got an opportunity to work with one of the biggest artists in hip-hop, and we were on the same wavelength. We collaborated.”
The Georgia native also spoke about the ghostwriting drama, telling VladTV he feels like his project with Drake has been “stained.”
“I wanted it to be one of those projects that go down in hip-hop history, and then all the s--- happened, and there’s like a stain on the legacy, on that project,” Miller said. “I hope that one day, like years down the line, when it’s all over with, people can just [look] at that project and say, ‘Wow, this was a great project.’”
Miller opened up to VladTV last month about getting into an purported physical altercation with Mill and his friends. Miller claimed the “All Eyes on You” rapper and his crew attacked him at a Los Angeles Nike store because he publicly denied being Drake’s ghostwriter. In July, Miller penned a blog post indicating he would “never take credit for anything other than a few songs” he and Drake worked on together.
“They caught me walking to the Nike store, and he approached me, and this was really my first time talking with Meek,” Miller said about the fight. “Basically, he told me he didn’t appreciate the letter that I dropped, and it made him seem like he was a liar, and they f------ stole off on me in the Nike store and ran. I shed blood in the Nike store.”
