Funkmaster Flex Freestyle - J.I.D.

Drake and Meek Mill’s beef just went way beyond a silly Twitter war – because an alternate version of a Drake hit was just leaked … and it features the alleged ghostwriter’s vocals and verses.

The song is “10 Bands” … and Quentin Miller’s version is damn near identical to Drake’s. Funkmaster Flex first played it late Wednesday on NYC’s Hot 97 … throwing gasoline on the fire Meek started by accusing Drake of not writing his own raps – a HUGE insult in hip-hop.

Full TMZ Story

EXPOSED. Case closed. Hit the link and Play Quentin’s version.

I just got off the phone with my homie who was managed by Drake’s old manager too and he told me a whole bunch of shit (doesn’t matter if you believe that or not). Drake is a fake bro. This shit is UNACCEPTABLE in hip hop. Drake, you are now strictly a pop artist.

Before you get co-writing and ghostwriting confused you guys need to read up on copyright law and intellectual property while in a recording session. Everybody has multiple writers listed on albums, including Meek, this even dates back to the “golden era” of hip hop. If you are in a session and make a suggestion that makes it to the record, technically, you are supposed to be listed as a writer. But getting reference tracks and having other rappers help you with the bars in your verse is looked down upon in hip hop.

Kendrick, an artist who is winning in 2015, said it on “King Kunta”, remember? “I can dig rappin’, but a rapper with a ghostwriter? What the fuck happened? I SWORE I WOULN’T TELL! But most of y’all sharing bars like you got the bottom bunk in a 2 man cell.” Lol.. I wonder who he was talking about. Meek is claiming that he writes his own verses and considering that Meek came up off of being a battle rapper, I believe him. I’m not hating on Drake or saying he has zero pen skills, and I’m still gonna bump his shit. I’m only saying that he needs to be viewed more like Beyonce or Rihanna in the sense that he has a talent for picking and performing dope shit that other people have written. (Go to Lupe Fiasco’s IG, he expresses my views almost perfectly on his “The Haunting” posts.)

What’s even more frustrating to a person who loves hip hop music is that Aubrey is going around saying he’s the best in the game when he doesn’t even write all of his own verses. THIS IS HIP-HOP. This is the one genre of music where that matters. But since you guys love Drake so much you don’t care just as long as he keeps choosing good reference tracks to cover, and that’s fine. But I DO care about the integrity and authenticity of hip hop.

Do you think Kendrick is letting niggas write ANY parts of his verses? Jay Z? Lupe? Eminem? J. Cole? Nas? Logic? If they are it’s most likely less than 10%.

On “10 Bands” Quentin says “I can tell you not a rapper, you niggas sellin’ swag.. I ain’t gotta open up the package”, almost dissing Drake. Then Drake uses it, like he’s not BUYING SWAG. I know Quentin came out and said he doesn’t ghostwrite for Aubrey, but why would he say otherwise? You think he wants go back to baking cakes? He’s employed by Aubrey and there’s probably a good chance that he’s under contract. It seems as if every person in the industry trying to defend Aubrey stands to benefit from him. It’s right there on tape, everyone. Aubrey uses GW’s. This nigga is a way more talented version of Nick Cannon. (Nickelodeon teen actor > I want to rap > Realization that his raps are cool but others are better > Employs Ghostwriters) Lol.. That statement may piss some people off, I know.

Like.. C’mon, you guys. I know you love Drake, but c’mon. This is Hip-Hop. We’re supposed to be the realest. Y’all really okay with Hip-Hop taking this L? For Aubrey? Really? Again, I’m not saying Aubrey isn’t talented, just saying he tried to front like he was one of the best lyricists of our generation and he got caught red handed using Ghostwriters, which in turn diminishes his perceived dopeness. He needs to take his hip-hop L and keep it pushin’..

Most annoying Radio DJ on this planet....

Holy shit, I never realized David Letterman was responsible for one of the most recognizable hip-hop samples of all time.

Jay-Z, photographed while performing on the “Sprite Liquid Mix Tour” by Jason Campbell in August 2002. 

Hov had recently returned from a two-week luxury European holiday—the first he had taken since entering the music business, and the first he spent with then-girlfriend Beyoncé. They had visited various locations around Europe, including Saint-Tropez in France and the Italian island of Capri. It wasn’t all pleasure though—he had found some time to record a feature for Mariah Carey’s “You Got Me” when visiting her at the studio in Capri. 

When he returned to the United States he headed straight to Hot 97 to address Nas’ recent Power 105.1 visit, in which he lambasted the “evil empire” Hot 97 for not letting him hang an effigy of Jay during a scheduled “Summer Jam” performance. After challenging Nas to a boxing match and dropping a legendary “Hovi Baby”-influencing freestyle on Funkmaster Flex’s show, Hov headed back to Baseline Studios to finish up recording The Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse. He had been working on material for it since December 2001

Jay-Z and R. Kelly, photographed at their press conference announcing their collaborative album The Best of Both Worlds and a co-headlining tour, held at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel on January 24, 2002. The album had been recorded earlier that month in a matter of days.

There was a celebratory atmosphere at the press conference, with Hot 97 DJ Funkmaster Flex spinning music, and several stars in attendance including P. Diddy, Ronald Isley, Russell Simmons and famed attorney Johnnie Cochran.

The tour plans would be scrapped in February when a video surfaced showing Kelly engaging in sex with, and urinating on, an underage girl. He was later arrested and indicted on 21 counts of child pornography in June of that year. In August 2004 they re-announced a 40-date tour, but it was also plagued with Kelly-related controversy and cancelled after just 23 shows.
