The Twitter beef between rappers Drake and Meek Mill may be a little confusing if you’re not plugged into the right social media circles. Catch up on how it all went down HERE, then let this pretty cool white dad from the burbs explain the latest.
This beef is really heating up! Just when you thought Drake’s diss track was the nail in the Meek Mill coffin, Meek bounces back with a diss of his own. His joint, “Wanna Know,” fell relatively flat, however. The hip hop community was less than enthused by it and really let Meek hear about it on various social media outlets. It’s easy to see why.
You can listen to it here. Admittedly, there are parts of the song that go somewhat hard, but it’s pretty clear that it wasn’t the retaliatory track Meek was hoping for. Lol there was a part near the end of the song about Drake getting urinated on in a movie theater. Who really knows if it’s accurate or not, but can you imagine? These guys are straight savages, man!
Let’s check in on Drake’s Instagram account to see how he was affected by the Meek diss.
Oh snap. Haha that’s that dude Drake! Totally unfazed by Meek’s diss, as expected. Just laughing it off like it’s nothing. That’s that swag you hear so much about.
Drake wasn’t finished either, it turns out. On Monday night during Drake’s annual OVO Fest in Toronto, he put Meek Mill six feet under. Figuratively of course! While performing his now famous diss track, “Back to Back Freestyle,” behind him a huge screen displayed internet memes commemorating the takedown of Mr. Mill. It was a slugfest, guys, and Drake did not hold back. Almost makes you feel bad for Meek.
Below is a video of the aforementioned performance, filmed by a fan in the middle of the madness. The performance, by all accounts and according to my Twitter.com feed, was LIT!
The iPhone battery charge you see going up to 100% was, of course, a reference to Drake’s first Meek diss, “Charged Up.” That Drake can be so creative. He really nailed that performance, man. Really gave Meek Mill the business! And the way the crowd sings part of the song for him — man that gets me so hype.
As one would expect, the internet exploded once again over this performance. And for good reason. This is some real stuff. The rap game doesn’t even know what hit it.
Probably my favorite part of OVO Fest didn’t even occur on the stage, and it involves one of Philly’s finest — perhaps something that has gone overlooked by some rap enthusiasts is the inclusion of Will Smith as part of Drake’s entourage.
Smith reps Philly hard, as most of you know. And so does Meek Mill, as he hails from there too. Smith, aside from his illustrious career as an actor, of course used to rap a bit. Big Willie Style! His raps are seen as fun and hokey, not at all similar to Drake’s. It almost belongs in a different genre of music than your traditional hip hip. And that’s fine. It’s just different. It’s also PG. I mean the dude doesn’t even cuss in his songs. Dude’s got rhymes, though!
Drake’s reason for having Will Smith with him backstage? He wanted the best rapper from Philadelphia with him. Whoa. That’s yet another huge blow to Meek. So savage.
So Meek has to respond again, right? I mean the guy has to. He’s got to do some damage control after all this. Get some street cred back. But how? Another diss track? The first one didn’t go so well. I guess we’ll wait and see. All is quiet on his Twitter account. He posted on Instagram right after news broke of Drake’s OVO Fest antics, though.
Many among the hip hop community speculate that this pic means Meek Mill is currently plotting on the low.
Buckle up, everyone. It’s getting good..
P.S. Ya boy is still #TeamDrake.
