11 songs written by other famous artists.

During his Beats Radio show on Saturday, Drake dropped an entirely new track called, “Charged Up.” It’s sole purpose? Earlier this week, Meek Mill claimed that the Toronto native “don’t write his own raps”, adding that he wouldn’t have included him on his new album if he had known prior.Meek Mill recently said Drake doesn’t “write his own raps,” causing Lupe Fiasco to write a note on Instagram about how some of the best raps are by ghostwriters — but Quentin Miller, who’s written with Drake before, wrote his own note Thursday clarifying that he is “not and never will be a ‘ghostwriter’ for Drake.” “I’m proud to say we’ve collaborated,” he wrote in a post on his Tumblr. “But I could never take credit for anything other than the few songs we worked on together.” Mill listed Miller’s name in a single tweet as part of his series of tweets about Drake, but Miller maintains that his relationship with Drake is collaborative. “I remember him Showing me the thank you notes in NY before the album dropped,” Miller wrote. “Showing me the QM, telling me they put me on the credits (Ghostwriter???) … He attached my name to something that touched the world.”

Artists performing songs written by other people is not something new, but the spotlight recently cast on the longtime profession has many debating which method is most preferred in the industry. Following the claims, hip-hop DJ Funkmaster Flex aired an alleged “reference track” from Quentin Miller, a songwriter credited on Drake’s latest mixtape ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’. And the message is clear: Drake isn’t going to stand for the possibly reputation damaging allegations, but he’s not going to sink down to Mill’s juvenile level. Everyone seems to be finding their chill as we roll into the weekend, but we’re not finished with Drizzygate just yet: Quentin Miller, the rapper Meek named as the true lyrical force behind Drake’s raps, has taken to Tumblr to dispute that claim.

In the letter, which can be read in full below, Miller alleges that his input to the mixtape songs was minimal and praises the rapper’s philanthropy and musical ability. “Winter 2014… I was just another guy working a job he hated with a passion for music…. I told him I worked in a bakery and his exact words were ‘Fuck that, your destined for greatness.’ “Most of the project was done before i came in the picture.. This isn’t the first time Drake has had to deal with being called out both in a song and on social media (anyone remember the Chris Brown mishap?), and it certainly won’t be the last. Minaj was concerned about how the media normalizes and rewards certain types of beauty above others; Meek Mill was focused on preserving truthfulness in a genre that’s long prized it. But like other great hip-hop artists that have come before him -from Tupac to Jay Z- Drake’s decision to remain relatively quiet about the confounding accusation until he was able to express all of his thoughts on the most powerful medium available to him is what separates him from the rest of the boys. “Easter egg hunting cause they looking for something.

As the smoke cleared, it became evident that hip-hop’s most prominent new couple are also the new ethics police, animated by principle and standing firm and tall. I witnessed him light up, go in and freestyle ‘Madonna’.” “When nobody would pay attention, drake saw something in me and reached out… Of all people… drizzy. On Tuesday, after not receiving an MTV Video Music Award nomination for video of the year (though she did receive other nods), she underscored what she believed was a persistent bias in the kind of videos that receive attention: “If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year,” she wrote on Twitter. Swift was quickly given a lesson in intersectional feminism, which highlights the fact that women of different backgrounds experience oppression differently. Swift on the defensive, also chimed in to point out that “Bad Blood,” which is rumored to be about tensions between the two, is itself a song that pits woman against woman.) Ms.

Swift’s gaffe underscores the limitations of public displays of affinity as compared with public (or private, for that matter) challenges to systems that exist to further privilege for those already in possession of it. (Her challenge to Apple Music’s pay system was a rare foray into controversy.) Even Ms. In a hail of tweets, he accused Drake of relying on a ghostwriter for the verse that he rapped on Meek Mill’s latest album, “Dreams Worth More Than Money.” “He ain’t even write that verse on my album and if I woulda knew I woulda took it off my album….. They are widely admired and commercially successful, and also loathed in some corners for what might be termed an excess of sincerity (or at minimum, the performance of such).

Swift has lately publicly embraced supermodels (Karlie Kloss, Lily Aldridge), other singers (Selena Gomez, Lorde), actresses (Hailee Steinfeld, Sarah Hyland) and even Kendrick Lamar. A cynical read is that these connections have been a way to shift conversation away from her relationships, which for a few years drowned out most other public discourse around her. Meek Mill, one of the last remaining mainstream rappers still loyal to the street rap of the 1990s, has barely tweaked his approach in search of wider acclaim. This comes with it.” And he has liked an Instagram video that places a magazine cover featuring Skepta (a Drake buddy) in front of one featuring Meek Mill.
