Drake’s Producer Just Addressed The Rumors That Drake Doesn’t Write His Own Songs

"Don't ever question my brother's pen."

Posted on

Last night, Meek Mill called Drake out on Twitter and claimed the Grammy Award-winning, multiplatinum-selling artist doesn't write his own music.

Stop comparing drake to me too.... He don't write his own raps! That's why he ain't tweet my album because we found out! 😁

And things have gotten pretty...petty.

I pray the real live forever and all the fake get exposed! 🙏

Drake hasn't directly responded to this situation yet, although it looks like he may have told Hitman Holla from MTV’s Wild ‘N Out that "he signed up for greatness. This comes with it."

But that didn't stop Noah "40" Shebib, Drake's longtime friend and producer, from delivering an epic mic drop on Twitter.

The two go way back, and 40 let it be known that he isn't happy with Meek's accusations.

He isn't happy at all.

No one can question my involvement in drakes career. We have come a long way together. So let me start by putting something into perspective

I can't count the hours that myself and drake have spent writing producing and recording music. Let's just say... 5000 hours...

Shebib acknowledged that Quentin Miller, Drake's alleged ghostwriter, has actual credits on Drizzy's most recent mixtape.

I've spent maybe 30 min in a studio with Q. Nice enough guy, very talented...

If your asking if he contributed to if you're reading this... Yes, he did. You can also see that by reading the credits. 👀

And said how much he enjoys working with his friend because his talent and skill are unmatched.

Anyways, I don't work with many people. And there's a reason....

No one is as talented as drake. It's not worth my time. I need someone who understands song writing on a higher level...

Sometimes that skill is used to recognize other great songs... Like in all forms of music... Except rap.

Rap has a stigma about writing your own lyrics and rightfully so... its a very personal art form and its rooted in speaking truthfully.

Thankfully for me drake isn't just a rapper. He's also a musician and a producer and a creator.

We go beyond the normal boundaries that rappers want to sleep themselves stuck in.

We've been fighting those rules from day one. If no one noticed there weren't many singing rappers in '08

Theres countless number ones and songs drake has written for others never mind himself, thats the funny part lol!

To be even feeling my own need to say these things is crazy

Not only did 40 speak on Drake's writing skills, but he also commented on the rapper's impact on music in general.

and even more ironic is that drake is maybe the most personal rapper ever

never has someone spoken about themselves or there own perspective so vividly... ever.

its why people have called him soft... because he shows humility and is truthful and honest.

*Mic drop*

you're smokin that shit you say you selling if you think someone wrote that shit.

so if someone wants to be upset that drake made a great album, go for it, get mad all day lol! but don't ever question my brothers pen.

If the OVO crew doesn't represent real friendship, nothing does.
