Quentin Miller Reflects On How Drake Ghostwriting Claims Affected His Career

Miller got candid on the five-year anniversary of 'If You're Reading This It's Too Late.'

In commemoration of the five-year anniversary of Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late album, Quentin Miller opened up about the after-effects that Meek Mill’s ghostwriting claims had on his career on Thursday (Feb. 13).

“It’s different for me. It’s pretty much try to act like it doesn’t even exist. the biggest project of my entire career right that’s pretty stronger. Unfortunately, I don’t have the good memories that everybody has. My good memories were all murdered the day Meek Mandela..ya’ll buying that bulls**t since he came out of jail, whatever — the day he put my name out there, it just blew up my whole spot. Basically just fu**ed everything up for me bro.”

Miller's relationship withDJ Drama and Don Cannon were ruined in the process. “It was just so much confusion and everybody was trying to find out who's at fault. Ya’ll just don’t know what that pressure was like, it was a lot, it was hot. That’s one of the biggest things I regret was f**king up that relationship.

“In the end, Drake and Meek are best friends now, they watch basketball games, they do shows and s**t, so it’s like wtf was all of that even for? Everybody was able to move on because everybody else’s careers were already established.”

Prior to working with Drake, Miller had been dropped from record label but landed jobs at Target, Publix grocery store, and temp agencies. Looking back, Miller can't help but think about how an opportunity that could've taken his career to a new level actually set him back. “It’s crazy how the best moment of my life after a tweet turned into one of the most stressful moments of my life.”

Jada Pinkett Smith Confirms Past Relationship With August Alsina

As promised, Jada Pinkett Smith brought herself to the infamous red table but she wasn’t alone. Will Smith joined his wife to address August Alsina’s claims in a special mini-episode of Red Table Talk that premiered on Friday (July 10).

Jada confirmed that she was once in a relationship with the 27-year-old singer while “separated” from Will. According to Jada, things with Alsina started out as a platonic friendship before turning into something more.

“As time went on, I got into a different kind of entanglement with August,” she admitted.

The actress went on to clarify that Will never August “permission” to date her. “The only person that can give permission in that particular circumstance is myself,” she said. “I could see how he would perceive it as ‘permission' because we were separated amicably and I think he also wanted to make it clear that he’s not a home wrecker — which he’s not.

“I was in a lot of pain. I was broken. I definitely realized that you can’t find happiness outside of yourself, and luckily enough, you and I were going through a process of healing in a much different manner,” Jada told Will. “I would definitely say we did everything we could to get away from each other only to realize that that wasn’t possible.”

Later in the talk, Will asked Jada what she was looking for in August. “I just wanted to feel good,” she said. “And it was really a joy just to heal somebody.”

The couple, who have been together for 25 years, also revealed their relationship mantra: “We ride together. We die together. Bad marriage for life.”
