Producer "40" Shebib Defends Drake, Doesn't Directly Deny "10 Bands" Ghostwriting Allegations
(AllHipHop News) There are a lot of questions swirling around concerning whether Drake has used other artists to write his raps. The suspicion began when Meek Mill called out the OVO leader on Twitter. Then DJ Funkmaster Flex upped the ante by releasing a “10 Bands” reference track by alleged Drake ghostwriter Quentin Miller.

The leak featured Quentin rapping a near identical verse Drake used on the If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late cut. Despite what appears to be evidence Drizzy used rhymes written by Que, longtime Drake producer Noah “40” Shebib is defending his partner’s pen game.
40 posted several tweets explaining Drake’s musical skills and writing abilities. One tweet reads, “You’re smokin that sh*t you say you selling if you think someone wrote that sh*t.” But it was not clear if that tweet was addressing Drake’s music in general or a specific song, so it should be noted the Toronto board master never directly denied Drake lifted his “10 Bands” verse from Que.
