Reactions To Drake Songwriting Controversy Again With Mob Ties

The ongoing debate over Drake’s songwriting practices has intensified following the leak of a purported reference track for “Mob Ties” by Vory.

The source of the leak remains unclear, and neither Drake nor Vory have addressed the track’s authenticity. Vory, a Grammy-nominated artist who was once signed to Meek Mill’s Dream Chasers label, is officially credited as a co-writer on the song. However, commentators like Akademiks have suggested that Vory’s contribution may be more substantial than his credit implies. On his Rumble channel, Akademiks stated, “He is credited but he ain’t write nothing […] I’ma tell you how I know he ain’t write shit for Drake: [‘Mob Ties’] was almost like a Toronto n-gga spitting.”


This isn’t the first time Drake has faced accusations of using ghostwriters. Recently, Lil Yachty was alleged to have written “Jumbotron Shit Poppin” from Drake’s collaborative album with 21 Savage, *Her Loss*, after a reference track surfaced online.

Rick Ross, who has had a tumultuous relationship with Drake, used these allegations to further criticize his former collaborator. In a post referencing Lil Yachty, Ross wrote, “Yacht Put ya phone on silent lil bro.. [100 emoji] #BBLDRIZZY CALLING AGAIN [nose emoji, hand emoji, laughing emoji],” and added: “YACHT AKA THE PEN [five writing emojis].” Ross also claimed that Drake had someone else write his verse on Travis Scott’s hit “Sicko Mode,” sharing a video of himself in a club and questioning, “Who wrote this? Guess who wrote this? You would never guess who wrote this,” before laughing.


These ghostwriting claims have plagued Drake since his 2015 release, *If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late*, which included several credits for Quentin Miller. Despite these allegations, Miller has consistently denied being a ghostwriter for Drake. In an interview with Vlad TV, Miller revealed that he was never compensated for his work on the project due to a binding publishing deal with Tricky Stewart. “I never got a single publishing check off any songs. I had to feed my family off getting paid under the table in that situation,” Miller explained, detailing the struggles he faced due to his contract with Stewart.

The ongoing drama continues to cast a shadow over Drake’s illustrious career, as new claims and counterclaims emerge from both supporters and critics.
