Nobody really cares if Toronto rap boss Drake has a ghostwriter or two. Radio veteran and songwriter Gillie Da Kid, also known as Gillie Da King, recently spoke out about the process behind great lyrics, and spoke on why it doesn’t matter if an artist gets some help.
Gillie Da Kid Has Some Thoughts On Ghostwriting
He maintained that very few great songs were written by just a single artist. Gillie Da Kid defended Drake and let it be known it didn’t really matter, as long as the final product turns out dope.
“Let me just tell you something. Music is about going into the studio, having fun, expressing yourself. Sometimes it’s one person in there, sometimes it’s three persons in there, sometimes it’s five people in there. It’s all about cooking up the best. … Beyoncé don’t write all her music. Rihanna don’t write all her music. Taylor Swift don’t write all her music. Guess who don’t care that Drake ain’t write that music? The woman that’s going to suck his d**k at the end of the night. She ain’t sucking Quentin Miller’s d*ck. They don’t care about Quentin Miller.”
Soulja Boy Reacts To Drake + Bow Wow Bond
When the hip-hop megastar recently gave rap veteran Bow Wow credit for paving the way for his success, it was only a matter of time before Soulja Boy would chime in, wanting respect put on his name. Drake said to Bow Wow, “If it wasn’t for you, it wouldn’t be me.” It automatically drew memories of Soulja Boy’s famous interview with The Breakfast Club (“Draaaaake? Drake?”) when he claimed Drake stole his flow and built his career off Soulja. The “Crank That” hitmaker couldn’t hold back about Drake giving Bow Wow some shine.
“That n*gga drake is hilarious. Dude stole my whole bar then thanked bow wow”
A few years ago, Soulja Boy went viral for calling out Drake. SB wanted credit for teaching Drizzy everything he knew.
“He copied my whole f*cking flow! Word for word! Bar for bar! Don’t act like I didn’t make Drake, n*gga. Don’t do that! I will son n*ggas in a heartbeat!”

Drake didn’t stop there, he shared another clip of himself solo and being honest about Bow Wow paving the way.
