Meek Mill apologises to Drake for ghostwriter claim: ‘I was upset as a fan’

Meek Mill previously said he wouldn't have let Drake feature on his album if he knew he didn't write the lyrics

Rapper Meek Mill has apologised to both Drake and his girlfriend Nicki Minaj for accusing the former of not writing his own lyrics.

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. The Philadelphia rapper released his second album ‘Dreams Worth More Than Money’ in June, with Drake featuring on the track ‘R.I.C.O’.

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’. The early demo, played on Flex’s Hot 97 radio show, features many of the same lyrics later featured in Drake’s ’10 Bands’.

With Drake’s long-time producer Noah ’40’ Shebib defending his collaborating by labeling him not “just a rapper” but “also a musician and a producer and a creator”, Mill has now apologised live onstage.

The rapper appeared alongside Minaj in concert on Wednesday night (July 22), apologising firstly to her due to the fact that she’s good friends with labelmate Drake.

Mill later apologised to Drake himself, stating that he was “upset as a fan” when he realised that Drake may not have written all his lyrics himself. See that moment below.

Drake himself later broke his silence on the matter by writing on Instagram: “I signed up for greatness. This comes with it”.
