As a follow up to Meek Mill’s public accusation that Drake does not write his own lyrics, Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex released the reference track for Drake’s “10 Bands” off of If Youre Reading This Its Too Late today (July 22), which was originally recorded by Atlanta emcee Quentin Miller.
Flex also stated that his source told him that Drake pays Miller $5,000 per month to keep him on retainer.
“If Drake does write everything,” Flex said before continuing, “everyone owes him an apology. If he doesn’t, I go on the record as [saying] he’s a fraud.”
Listen to Quentin Miller’s version of “10 Bands” below:
Quentin Miller is listed in the credits on six songs off of If You’re Reading This Its Too Late—”Legend,” “10 Bands,” “Know Yourself,” “No Tellin,” “Used To,” “6 Man.”
Fellow Atlanta emcee OG Maco shared his perspective on Twitter last night as well (July 21). “Some of us been knew,” he stated before continuing, “Meek just put in in the air. Sucks to have to compete with 6 niggas and get compared to 1.”
Maco also says that he only spoke on the issue so his friend, Miller, would receive credit.
