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.At this very moment, Twitter is eviscerating Philadelphia rapper and Nicki Minaj paramour Meek Mill for a track he just released called “Wanna Know.” It’s a diss track of Drake, the Canadian teen TV star turned platinum MC whose feud with Meek has been the talk of the hip-hop world for the past two weeks.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.

With most of the Internet declaring Drake the winner of what has been admittedly a tepid beef, let’s take a look at the events that got us to this particular place in time. 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.

In a new diss track titled “Wanna Know,” which the rapper released late Thursday, Meek finally retaliates, rapping, “I just wanna know / If you ain’t write that runnin’ through the 6 sh– / Tell us, who was Quentin runnin’ through the 6 with?” Listen below: The track also includes what appears to be the reference track for Drake’s “Know Yourself” with Quentin Miller, whom Meek Mill named as Drake’s ghostwriter when he claimed the Toronto MC doesn’t write his own raps. In an unexpected show of support for the rapper, the 73-year-old Kelly declared that Meek Mill was no longer welcome in Toronto, where he was scheduled to perform with Nicki Minaj the following week. South African sports and recreation minister, Mbalula Fikile, has joined the issues with American rapper, Robert Rahmeek Williams also known as Meek Mill, who is currently engaged in a feud with another rapper, Drake. 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.

July 22: During an extended series of tweets, Meek Mill accuses Drake of not writing his own rhymes—specifically the verse that Drake provided for “R.I.C.O.” He says that Drake’s contribution to the song was written by an Atlanta MC named Quentin Miller. At a concert in Virginia that night (Meek is currently on girlfriend Nicki Minaj’s Pinkprint tour), Meek clarifies his Twitter statements. “And don’t get it twisted, I was just upset as a fan that a n—- gave me a verse that he didn’t write. 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.

July 24: Quentin Miller, the rapper who Meek credited with writing Drake’s verse, denies ghostwriting for Drake in a Tumblr post. “I am not and never will be a ‘ghostwriter’ for Drake,” he wrote. “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.” That evening, legendary New York radio DJ Funkmaster Flex went on Twitter to declare that Meek Mill’s accusations were accurate, and that he possessed a series of reference tracks that proved that Drake was not the original writer of some of his material. July 25: With support from longtime collaborator Noah “40” Shebib, Drake releases a track called “Charged Up” that acts as a response to Meek’s allegations. “I’m honored that you think this is staged,” Drake raps.

July 27: Meek claims he’s got a track ready in response to “Charged Up” called “Beautiful Nightmare,” but when the time comes to unveil it, it turns out to just be 15 seconds of Meek screaming. 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. Not only did that represent the second straight championship for the Jays, but it also came at the expense of Meek’s hometown Philadelphia Phillies. 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.
