Drake invokes Joe Carter in latest shot at Meek Mill.

The Grammy winner issued “Back to Back” overnight, accompanied by a photo of Carter’s triumphant trot following his World Series-winning walk-off home run in 1993.This week, Drake took the offensive in his heated feud with Meek Mill by firing back-to-back shots at the Philadelphia MC in the form of two diss tracks.The battle between rappers Meek Mill and Drake grew heated enough to involve a Toronto city councillor, one of the most famous Blue Jays of all time and 1.5 million Google searches in a single day.Councillor Norm Kelly (open Norm Kelly’s policard) has officially been invited to the 6th annual OVOFest, according to Drake’s Instagram account and much to the delight of many who’ve been keeping an eye on the drama surrounding the rapper and the councillor this week.

In response, Drake released “Charged Up” followed by “Back to Back Freestyle,” the latter making fun of Mill’s relationship with Nicki Minaj, who he is currently opening for on tour. In the early hours of Friday, Drake posted a picture of the councillor on his Instagram account, captioned “6th Annual OVO Fest this weekend. @welcomeovo.” The two have become unlikely allies in recent days, with the Twitter-savvy Ward 40 councillor coming out in full force to support Drake, whom he calls a “Canadian hero,” in Drake’s ongoing Twitter feud with Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill. Meek Mill’s response to Drake’s bashing is the track “Wanna Know,” which includes the line, “I just wanna know, if you ain’t write that running through the six s—/Tell us who the f— Quentin out here running through the six with?” Kelly wasn’t the only one trashing the track. It’s one of three alleged reference tracks that surfaced online Thursday night—alongside “Used To” and “R.I.C.O.,” the track that started it all—eight days after DJ Funkmaster Flex relased the reference track for “10 Bands.” Last week, Miller came forward saying he is not ”and never will be” Drake’s ghostwriter, writing, “I’m proud to say that we’ve collaborated … but I could never take credit for anything other than the few songs we worked on together.” Meek references Miller in the new track, naming him a featured artist on “Wanna Know.”

Mill responded saying, “U sound like a thug lol.” Mill was booed after he showed up almost 90 minutes late, reportedly because he’d been held up at the U.S. And when Meek Mill was imprisoned on a parole violation, Drake publicly wore a T-shirt that read “Free Meek Mill.” But it was radio silence on the @Drake account. Throughout his career, the Toronto rapper said he would never respond to criticisms of his music. “Diss me, you’ll never hear a reply for it,” he rapped on his early single Successful. OVOFest, a festival organized by Drake for the sixth year in a row, runs Saturday through Monday at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre, featuring performances from the rapper himself, J.

Minaj plays an important role in the dispute, since she is both Meek Mill’s tour partner and current girlfriend and Drake’s labelmate on Cash Money Records and rumoured former girlfriend. In this song, he questions Meek Mill’s opening slot on Minaj’s tour: “Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour?” The song itself has deeper subliminal meaning, referencing the Toronto Blue Jays’ 1992-1993 back-to-back World Championship. In it, Meek Mill continues the ghostwriting claims, comparing Drake to Milli Vanilli, the RnB group famous for being caught lip-synching in the 1990s.
