Ghostwriter beef continues between US rappers
Meek Mill has responded to Drake recording a diss track about him, promising to reveal his own musical response tomorrow (July 27).
Meek Mill claimed that the Toronto native “don’t write his own raps”, adding that he wouldn’t have included him on his own new album if he had known prior. The Philadelphia rapper released his second album ‘Dreams Worth More Than Money’ in June, with Drake featuring on the track ‘R.I.C.O’.
Drake tackles these feuds head on in ‘Charged Up’ which includes the lyrics: “I did some charity today for the kids / But I’m used to it cause all y’all charity cases / All y’all stare in my face and hope you could be to replace me / Snitchin’ on us without no interrogation / I stay silent ‘cause we at war and I’m very patient.”

Meek Mill has not taken this response lying down and posted a tweet about the song being “baby lotion soft” before adding:
Funkmaster Flex, who has defended Mill throughout the week and played demo tapes of Drake songs featuring the vocals of his alleged ghostwriter Quentin Miller, then shared a picture on Instagram suggesting that a Meek Mill diss track is imminent.
Drake’s long time producer Noah ’40’ Shebib moved to defend Drake after Meek Mill and Funkmaster Flex’s allegations and posted a series of tweets about their songwriting process. Meanwhile, ‘ghostwriter’ Quentin Miller has also spoken about the allegations and denied that he is writing Drake’s lyrics for him.
