Quentin Miller Says The Drake/Meek Mill Beef Did Get Violent. Just Not Between Them (Video)
When the Drake and Meek Mill beef boiled over last Summer, there was one central figure in the controversy: Quentin Miller. The emerging artist was the person that Meek Mill identified as the ghostwriter who penned Drake’s verse on Meek Mill’s song, “R.I.C.O.” Miller was a credited contributor on a number of songs on Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, but Meek insisted Miller was fully writing Drake’s rhymes, and released some reference tracks of Miller doing Drake songs, which were subsequently removed.
In the weeks and months that followed, there were a slew of diss tracks and charged words, in concerts and social media, between Meek Mill and Drake, but the exchanges never escalated to violence…at least between them. Now, in an interview with DJ Vlad, Miller says that he was the victim of a physical assault at the hands of Meek Mill’s Dream Chasers crew.
At the beginning of the video, Vlad plays an unreleased clip from TV/Twitter personality Taxstone, who alleges that the controversy between Meek and Drake started because Meek initially wanted Miller to write for him, and he opted to write for Drake, instead. Taxstone then asserts that, as payback, when Meek and his crew encountered Miller in Los Angeles, they beat him up.
With a knowing laugh and without hesitation, Miller confirms the attack, saying “yeah, it’s true” multiple times. “They caught me. We was walking. We was in L.A. I was walking to the Nike store and he approached me, and this was really my first time talking with Meek, and he basically told me that he didn’t appreciate the letter that I dropped and it made him seem like he was a liar and whatnot, and they fuckin’ stole off on me in the Nike store and ran. I shed blood in the Nike store on Wilshire.” He later says, “As far as Meek and them, I don’t get them. I don’t get how he moves or why they make the decisions they make, but I guess that’s just who they are.”
Miller goes on to note that he did not call the cops or file any reports about the incident, but he did reference it on his mixtape. “That’s why I say at the end of ‘To Turn 26’at the end of Hey! Thanks A Lot 3 ‘Niggas really shed blood over this Rap beef shit and I ain’t even ask to be a part of it,'” he says.
When Vlad presses Miller on the circumstances under which the reference tracks were leaked and whether it was true that Meek wanted Miller to right for him, Miller refuses to confirm or deny, saying “I’m not gonna speak on that” and “I’m not getting into detail about that.”
