Drake Bares All On Ghostwriting Allegations & Reveals That He Was Disappointed With Meek Mill’s “Strategy”

In his first full-length interview in two years the rapper Drake has made a surprising confession about claims he uses ghostwriters to create his Grammy-winning material.

Where he did it? In a conversation with ‘The Fader’ which was arranged to promote his latest body of work ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ which he reportedly released to ease himself out of his contract with the Cash Money music group.

Read surprising excerpts from his time with the publication below…

On ghostwriting allegations:

I need, sometimes, individuals to spark an idea so that I can take off running. I don’t mind that. And those recordings—they are what they are. And you can use your own judgment on what they mean to you…If I have to be the vessel for this conversation to be brought up—you know, God forbid we start talking about writing and references and who takes what from where—I’m OK with it being me… It’s just, music at times can be a collaborative process, you know? Who came up with this, who came up with that—for me, it’s like, I know that it takes me to execute every single thing that I’ve done up until this point. And I’m not ashamed.

On Meek Mill’s claims that he does use writers:

This is a discussion about music, and no one’s putting forth any music?… Nobody told you that this was a bad idea, to engage in this and not have something?…It was weighing heavy on me. I didn’t get it. I didn’t get how there was no strategy on the opposite end. I just didn’t understand. I didn’t understand it because that’s just not how we operate.

On those pesky “soft” claims:

Not being vulnerable is never gonna be my thing. I’m always going to share with you what’s going on in my life…Vulnerability, to me, sometimes comes in the form of being naïve about where I am in the pecking order of all this. So I think I realize where I’m at now. And I think I realize that I’m gonna have to be OK with not having that many friends that are peers.

  3. CiMinaj September 25, 2015

    But all rappers get ideas from elsewhere for their lyrics. Seems like he is just inspired by other people.

      • Taylar Tayler Taylir TAYLOR Taylur September 25, 2015

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 25, 2015

        Wait! What do I have to do with this? Why include me in something I have no business being in? Can I just have some peace, be happy and stress free, and enjoy my time on this blog for today at least? Gosh, man! It’s not fair I’m getting dragged into stuff when I’m innocent with clean hands.

    • Shady81 September 25, 2015

      B**** keep my name and the others you’ve name out your MUTHAFUCKING MOUTH B**** I’m talking to you weak ass @career no ender now pop off pop off B****.

      • Regina George September 25, 2015

        @Shady81 and @Anastasia B. they are really trying it but the dragging these low life living losers are signing up for will have them nurturing drag rash for days. Old Funky McNasty’s everywhere just runnin a muck. No one even brought Janet up as this was about Drake, but they stay Faultless PRESSED to keep her name in their snaggle tooth mouths and on the tip of those snausage fingers… The kids trip me out thinking that once they take a break from World of Warcraft to wipe the weeks worth of crumbs off their shirts that they can “come” for us. Bih why wait for Oct 2 when ain’t no time like the present?! October 2nd ain’t promised to you so we can all just put you out of your social media misery now…

  5. Chillitsjustpizza September 25, 2015

    Ok kids drake just made it ok to have ghostwriter’s in rap.. Hes an actor and got u all fooled along with nick minaj. For instance she said when u hear me spit nicki minaj wrote it kii…. All these n***** are frauds. Just have a good rap voice if u wanna be in the industry..

    • Lmfao_Hoe September 25, 2015

      How Sway? How? how could he be using Ghostwriters if the alleged guy is being f****** credited on the album to public knowledge way before Meek even opened his mouth. Last I checked anyone who writes your s*** is not suppose to be credited or known by anyone. Hence why they’re called ghostwriters smh dumbass.

  6. marco September 25, 2015

    Drake is being honest, lets be real does he not try to sing like CRAIG DAVID? of course he does. They sound just alike.

    Drake has no vocal talent live but he is a great rapper and he brings his “A” game when he performs.

    He is NOT on every award show rapping to boring song (like Nikki).

    • King Mark111 /.\ September 25, 2015

      Clearly he’s not that great when he have to have inputs from others to make a song.

  7. Taylar Tayler Taylir TAYLOR Taylur September 25, 2015

    I LOVED HIS NEW MIXTAPE EVEN THOUGH I DID NOT BUY IT BECAUSE I WANTED TO, IT WAS JUST FOR CONTROL, I’D RATHER GO BLIND THAN SEE THAT LAMA ALBUM WITH ONLY 3 LISTENABLE SONGS GO #1

  8. Taylar Tayler Taylir TAYLOR Taylur September 25, 2015

    FETTY WAPP’S NEW ALBUM SLAYS YOU GUYS NEED TO LISTEN AND BUY THEN STREAM IT

  9. King Mark111 /.\ September 25, 2015

    If he’s creating a song, like singing wise, then sure. But rap is supposed to be all you, at least with your rapping. HI hop been like that for decades, when Drake is rapping, he’s saying me me me, but now it’s a team effort because someone called you out? So what’s the difference from this and Iggy then? See, we weakened the art and that’s why it’s SO easy for others to just come in and take over. Rather it’s a lame white rapper or another “Do this dance move” rapper.
    .
    I get it, Diddy directed Biggie to create his radio songs, but Puff didn’t write his raps. See what I’m saying? But this is a guy who freestyled, reading his rap with a BlackBerry in his hand.
    Back To Back was dope and Drake killed him, but does it count if others helped him with the raps in it? That’s like LB or Cent telling me what to say when I drag Molly, Rosin and the Pest. Sure I get them together, but it’s not mine shade.

      WHAT CHAPTER/VERSE IS THIS ON THEE BIBLE??????

  10. Keri Qween September 25, 2015

    Meek is jealous ghetto trash like his girlfriend

  11. ratedxxx September 25, 2015

    Damn he looks good….I like the fact that he chose to be with a real woman like Serena. .

    Than a bish who has to get shots every 90 days in her tatas and butterball

    • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 25, 2015

      So..is the relationship really official? Have they confirmed it yet? Uncap happy for them because my mom said that Serena swore off black men because she thinks they’re children after her breakup with Common. I hope these two last. At least she won’t need his money like those that’s he chases on a regular basis.

  12. chanel September 25, 2015

    Every singer and rapper get help from some who cares I’m pretty sure any favorites of ours get help no matter what kind of artist they are its just how they deliver it to the fans that don’t make you less of and artists if you look on every artist credit for a song Im sure it says different writers it should not be about behind wrote it if you like than you like it

  13. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans September 25, 2015

    If he gets his first Hot 100 #1 hit with “Hotline Bling” I will scream not only because it’s a solo single, but also because it truly is a great, fun song with a reputable message for today’s youth….and he truly deserves it. Every thing about the song is well-executed….the production and sample of Super Mario, the smart mouth lyrics and confident delivery, etc. I hope it replaces Abel’s song because Drake deserves to have a chart topper by now.

  14. What now September 25, 2015

    He’s 2 cute

  15. MISHKA September 25, 2015

    In this one year alone, he made $34 million and he got finer and sexier.

    Drake is in the zone, you can tell by the confidence you see in his eyes. Meek Mill and Co can keep hating from outside of the club.

    I hope Serena and him become an item, he’s been looking for a partner-in-crime for too long.
