Twitter seems to be a catalyst for fueling industry beef this week. In addition to Ghostface and Action Bronson, seems both Nicki Minaj and her man, Meek Mill could’ve been sitting side by side on their phone firing off shots in 140 characters or less last night. Meek expressed his disappointment and dismay while “airing out” that Drake doesn’t write his own raps, leading to OG Maco actually going ahead and naming names, specifically Quentin Miller.
In all actuality, none of this should come as a surprise, as lots of artists collaboratively write, and the writers for Drake’s songs are transparently available for anyone that chooses to look them up, as OG Maco did, giving a little “How To Read Credits 101” tutorial.

Albeit not that difficult to find, Twitter erupted with fans and haters alike, getting deep into the depths of their feelings over this. However you feel about it, the biggest question right now is, who is Quentin Miller?

Quentin Miller is part of an Atlanta-based group, WDNG Crshers. He has credits on the verse that started it all last night, from “R.I.C.O.” as well as “10 Bands,” “Know Yourself,” “No Tellin,” “Used To,” and “6 Man.” It’s also clear, via several OVO affiliates’ social media accounts, that he’s been down with the team for awhile. Whether or not he is an actual ghostwriter and has done more writing than he’s been publicly acknowledged for is widely unknown. However, at the end of the day, everything Meek is claiming to be a surprised is laid out pretty clearly for anyone with an internet connection to find on their own.
You can find the WDNG Crshers work here on their SoundCloud.
