Hit-Boy ‘Zoomin EP’

Hit-Boy graces us with some new tracks and it’s a quick-hit listen with a couple of intriguing features on the lead single: Pusha T and Quentin Miller. Hopefully for the latter, he’ll step out of the shadow of being Drake’s “ghostwriter” and a couple features on Zoomin below should definitely help that. Listen here:

UPDATE: Hit-Boy also reveals that Pusha’s first verse on “Bussin Moves” was actually originally intended for “Clique”.

Meek Mill directs more lines at Drake

Meek Mill, fresh off saying he’d give VO a “wedgie” at his last concert, followed that up with more lines directed at Drake.

Did five months, came home, that’s perfect timing / To make a sucka nigga look sucka without trying / If Quentin Miller wrote that shit, what were we buying?

Plus, Meek exhibits some transphobia in his hometown of Philly:

“N****s turn to hoes, Caitlyn Jenners turn to Drizzy Drakes.”

Video below, yawns across the board. OVO Fest put the nail in the coffin, yeah? Moving on…

Quentin Miller: “Not a ghostwriter for Drake”

Quentin Miller, the named ghostwriter during Meek Mill’s Twitter rant the other night, went straight to his tumblr page to disclaim the label. His full words indicate he was merely contributing on a few tracks and gives full credit to Drake.

So between that and Meek steppin’ back on it, I think we can all move on from this? At least it drummed up some noise for DWMTM

Winter 2014… I was just another guy working a job he hated with a passion for music…. And somehow found myself on the phone with One of my idols..

i told him i worked in a bakery and his exact words were “Fuck that, your destined for greatness”…

Hearing that from someone that I’ve been studying since 2009, bar for bar…. Theres no way to describe that..

Most of the project was done before i came in the picture.. i remember him playing it for me for the first time thinking “Why am I here?” like.. what does he need me for??

The answer is.. Nothing…

I watched this man piece together words in front of me…

I watched him write/ replace bars 2- 3 at a time on 6pm in NY.. I witnessed him light up, go in and freestyle madonna….

I took notes from the best in the game….

I remember him Showing me the thank you notes in NY before the album dropped.. Showing me the QM, telling me they put me on the credits (Ghostwritter???) … He attached my name to something that touched the world..

When nobody would pay attention, drake saw something in me and reached out… Of all people… drizzy..

Two artist in exact opposite spaces in their career.. We came together and made something special..

I am not and never will be a “ghostwriter” for drake.. Im proud to say that we’ve collaborated .. but i could never take credit for anything other than the few songs we worked on together ..

Thats all i have to say on it.. back to this 1317 shit…
