Drake Breaks the Internet with Meek Mill Diss Track ‘Back to Back’: ‘Think Before You Come for the Great One’.

Before the term “diss track” was ever enunciated by a liberal arts and culture writer somewhere in New York City, rappers were going head-to-head with each other, battling through quick and witty insults, in the form of rap battles.In the latest of his rap beef with Meek Mill, Drake delivered a brutal blow to the “Off the Corner” rapper with his freestyle diss track “Back to Back.” Drake, 28, attacked from every direction, asking Mill, 28, “Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour?” – referring to the rapper’s appearances on girlfriend Nicki Minaj’s Pinkprint tour.Hannibal Buress put the never-ending beef between Drake and Meek Mill into perspective on Wednesday’s episode of Why? by wandering around Beverly Hills and asking whether anybody even knew who either of the rappers are.

Hannibal Buress wanted to prove that not a lot of people know who Meek Mill is, despite his feud with Drake dominating the headlines this week, at least no one he talked to in Beverly Hills. As hip hop started entering the mainstream, more and more large scale artists were using their new found audience and accessible medium to fire off harsh insults against each other via platinum hits or buried bonus tracks on albums. Mill has been pretty quiet on the music front, even after Drake released his initial diss track “Charged Up” – which Mill Tweeted was “baby lotion soft.” The feud began with Mill accusing the Canadian rapper of not writing his own lyrics, which is a big no-no in the rap world. Meek Mill beef that has taken over social media, and the music industry at large. “Meek Mill tweeted saying Drake doesn’t write his own lyrics”, he said, breaking down their conflict.

Toronto rapper Drake and his new-found Philadelphia enemy Meek Mill cornered the market on music news over the past week, throwing insults at each other over Twitter (a la Meek Mill) or in brand new, rapidly released tracks (a la Drake). Of course, the residents of Beverly Hills are not typically known for their hot takes on hip-hop culture, but if a tree falls in a forest and no one knows that tree’s name, does its petty argument with a fellow tree even matter? News of the duo’s ongoing feud comes on the heels of reports that suggest Meek Mill was booed in Toronto during his The Pinkprint tour stop on Wednesday and was detained at the Canadian border for reasons stemming from his 2008 gun and drug conviction.

On Wednesday, Drake released, “Back to Back;” an insult- laced, scorn-dripping track that had the entire music world celebrating what appeared to be the end of the juvenile war. On it, the Toronto MC raps, ”You gon’ make me step out of my f–kin’ frame/ You gon’ make me buy bottles for Charlamagne.” And on Wednesday morning, Charlamagne found that Drake had actually delivered on his promise, sending him six bottles of Dom Perignon with a sweet note: “Let’s be friends, Aubrey Graham.” Charlamagne has said before that he doesn’t like it when Drake sings, but on Wednesday, the host gave Drake some props and called “Back to Back” a “tough, tough tune.” Jay Z was a street rapper and he had a girlfriend.” He also discussed his song “All Eyes on You,” on which Nicki has a guest verse (she also stars in the video). The hatred between 50 Cent and Ja Rule has been archived and shelved away by fans of hip hop, but this song had some of the best disses to come out of the lyrical war. 50 upped the stakes when he dropped insults targeting Fat Joe and Jadakiss while pumping up his own G-Unit team members including The Game and Lloyd Banks.

This may not be Kendrick Lamar’s own track, but his verse on Big Sean’s, “Control” was so memorable and so controversial, it deserves its own shout out. Even so, he’s willing to admit that her success doesn’t bother him in the least. “She killed me on that song, but I don’t really care,” he said. “When my girl do better than me, I still win. BEST LINE: ‘I’m usually homeboys with the same n—– I’m rhyming with/But this is hip-hop and them n—– should know what time it is/And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big K.R.I.T., Wale/ Pusha T, Meek Mills, A$AP Rocky, Drake/Big Sean, Jay Electron, Tyler, Mac Miller/I got love for you all, but I’m tryna murder you n—–” Eminem has proudly proclaimed his various beefs over the years, going to town and ripping them to bits on a variety of tracks. Like the title of the track suggests, Eminem carefully cultivated his best insults and harshest digs, absolutely destroying Benzino and hammering the last nail in his coffin.

After Common called out ice Cube in, “I Used to Love H.E.R.,” Ice Cube enthusiastically responded with, “Westside Slaughterhouse,” taking shot after shot at Common. Although not as prolific as, “Hit Em Up,” in which he solely took on Biggie, “Against All Odds” boasts Tupac’s final thoughts on the East Coast/West Coast war. The song was made even more legendary after he rapped about the track probably getting him murdered, only for him to wind up killed before the album was ever released. Easily the most celebrated, studied, and talked about diss track of all time, Jay Z’s takeover proved that Hova wasn’t someone to be jerked around and taken lightly. BEST LINE: “Matter of fact you had the worst flow on the whole f—— song/But I know: the sun don’t shine, than son don’t shine/that’s why your (lame) career’s come to an end/It’s only so long fake thugs can pretend.”
