Drake's alleged ghostwriter says he's not the rapper's ghostwriter
Quentin Miller says contributions 'made transparently clear in song credits'
Quentin Miller issued a Tumblr post explaining his relationship with Drake and noted that his contributions to the Toronto rapper's recent record were always made transparently clear in the song credits.

Stop comparing drake to me too.... He don't write his own raps! That's why he ain't tweet my album because we found out! 😁—@MeekMill
Miller has a songwriting credit on that song, along with five tunes from Drake's surprise "If You're Reading This It's Too Late."
In his post, Miller writes that he was an aspiring rapper, muddling in obscurity and working at a bakery, when Drake called him and told him he was "destined for greatness."
"I remember him playing it for me for the first time thinking, 'Why am I here?"'
"I am not and never will be a 'ghostwriter' for Drake," he writes. "I'm proud to say that we've collaborated, but I could never take credit for anything other than the few songs we've worked on together."
Toronto councillor Norm Kelly entered the fray earlier in the week when he tweeted that Mill, who performs here Tuesday, was no longer welcome in Toronto.
Mill fired back at Kelly on Twitter but Kelly didn't let the rapper win the war of words.
Aye white man <a href="https://twitter.com/norm">@norm</a> what gives you the audacity to tell me I can't come somewhere over me voicing my opinion! U sound like a thug lol—@MeekMill
Aye American <a href="https://twitter.com/MeekMill">@MeekMill</a>. Didn't say don't come. Just puzzled why you'd diss a Canadian hero a week before coming to his city.—@norm
