Last night, Rap Twitter erupted when Meek Mill let a few things off his chest, the biggest being the allegation that Drake doesn’t write his own raps, including the guest verse for “R.I.C.O.,” which appears on Meek’s latest album, Dreams Worth More Than Money. Minutes after Meek made his claims, OG Maco chimed in, tweeting pictures of credits from recent Drake songs and highlighting the nameQuentin Miller. Meek later tweeted the name, as well.
Now, the question everybody’s asking this morning: Who in the hell is Quentin Miller, and is he really Drake’s ghostwriter?
Here’s what we do know: Miller is an Atlanta rapper, currently part of a group called WDNG Crshrs. Complex premiered their new video two months ago, along with their latest mixtape. However, a connection to Drake and OVO is apparent through social media. PARTYNEXTDOOR follows him on Twitter. Maco called attention to Miller via credits on songs from If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, but Miller’s connection to OVO began popping up via Drake’s BFF and frequent video skit star OVO Ryan, as early as six months before that
album’s mixtape’s release. The photo above is dated 28 weeks old, and here’s another one from the same week where he’s pictured with more OVO members, and standing right beside Drake. The association was enough to spur savvy fans on KanyeToThe tospeculate if Miller was a new member of OVO officially. As seen in this thread, there were numerous other tweets and Instagrams that were very quickly deleted.
Miller’s name appears on five songs from IYRTITL: “10 Bands,” “Know Yourself,” “No Tellin,” “Used To,” and “6 Man.” He’s also credited on “R.I.C.O.,” the song that ignited this whole conspiracy. Meek claims he “found out” Drake didn’t write his verse for the song after the album was released and that if he had known, he would’ve removed it. Apparently this sentiment is why Drake didn’t socially support Dreams Worth More Than Money. OG Maco’s manager, Steven Dingle, chimed in as well:
Here’s the latest from Miller and WDNG Crshrs, a song called “Poppin.” According to Dingle, he’s dropping a track with Miller and OG Maco today, as well as urging Miller to drop “that banger” to capitalize on the awareness. Stay tuned for further updates as this story progresses.
