The man widely suspected to be Drake's alleged ghostwriter has spoken out and debunked the claims.

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.

Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill initiated the conflict with a series of tweets arguing that Drake "don't write his own raps," including the Grammy winner's verse on Mill's recent song "R.I.C.O."

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."

When Miller began work on Drake's project, it was already mostly finished, he writes.

"I remember him playing it for me for the first time thinking, 'Why am I here?"'

Miller calls Drake the "best in the game" and recalls watching the Grammy winner agonizing over his rhymes.

"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."

Drake has yet to respond to Mill's accusations.

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.
