With anticipation building last night for Meek Mill’s answer to Drake, Funkmaster Flex used his platform to leak three more reference tracks Atlanta emcee Quentin Miller penned for Drake’s If You’re Reading This Its Too Late, and his guest verse on Meek Mill’s Dreams Worth More Than Money project. Today’s drop brings the reference track tally to four: “10 Bands,” “Used To,” “Know Yourself,” and “R.I.C.O.” In less than five minutes, all four reference tracks were swiftly removed from Flex’s Soundcloud. The tracks are available (for now) below for download and also on YouTube.
Everyone is still clowning last night’s event, but this still isn’t a good look for Drake and proves Meek was telling the truth. Yes, Miller got his songwriting credits on IYRTITL, but this whole fiasco started over Meek’s claim that Drake didn’t write his verse for “R.I.C.O.” This not only verifies the accusation, but also lends credence to Miller being a “ghostwriter” for Drake since Q’s name is nowhere in the writing credits, unlike the tracks for IYRTITL. How many other “uncredited” reference tracks from Miller are out there? What about from other writers?
From the way this battle has gone, Drake won’t have to explicitly address until his next sit-down interview. Let’s hope it happens to be with a hard-nosed Hip-Hop journalist.
