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.Before the Meek Mill and Drake beef popped off, Meek and Joe Budden traded words after the Jersey MC criticized the Philly MC of going soft after wifing up Nicki Minaj.

If you followed the Wisconsin Badgers’ ride to last season’s national championship game, you’re probably familiar with the fact that the Badgers have a roster full of characters.While the world waits for Nicki Minaj‘s boyfriend Meek Mill to strike back at Drake, Nicki unleashed a few barbs at her ex-boyfriend Safaree “SB” Samuels.

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. 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?

On the “Lifeline” cut, he sounded eerily similar to Minaj flow-wise throughout the track. “A b**** ass ***** can’t write my raps,” she explained to the audience. “You know why? 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.

He was a finalist for USA Basketball’s Pan-American Games squad, and he’s undoubtedly been gearing up for life as the Badgers top option on offense this season. 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. From Disney?” And for what it’s worth, another woman — who seems like a genuine delight, perhaps because she is ignorant to the exciting but tiring world of hip-hop beef — has no problem with Meek’s allegation that Drake doesn’t write his own lyrics: “So what? 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.

I hate everything about it.” Meek and Nicki both reacted the the quote on Twitter and Budden later said he had every intention of apologizing to the couple for his remarks. During the NCAA Tournament, it was Hayes who decided to randomly become the worst nightmare of the stenographer who was working his press conference event, randomly dropping words like “cattywampus” before answering a question. On The Breakfast Club a few days later, a disgruntled Meek called Jersey Joe “corny as shit.” Budden was back in front of the mic for another episode of his podcast this week and broke down Meek and Drake’s beef and admitted that he was glued to the Funkmaster Flex show to hear Meek Mill’s diss just in case he had something more to say about him on wax. “Part of the reason I waited by that radio was because I did need to see if he were stupid enough to just mention my name,” said Joe. “I don’t think he will but it doesn’t matter, I’m about 70 bars in on him. There’s also the time that he inadvertently (or slyly and purposefully, if you ask me) revealed his affections for that same stenographer during a later presser, but not before he dropped the word “syzygy” on her in yet another attempt to stump her.

In any event that my name was said, I’d be in the studio right now instead of recording this podcast and I would have a fuckin’ reply out this morning.” 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. With the help of a friend, Hayes released his own version of Drake’s “diss track” titled “Back to Back.” I’ll play the role of spoiler and let you know that Hayes is an awful rapper, but that doesn’t stop him from having fun while namedropping his coach and teammates.

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. Nowadays, many of the biggest stars in college basketball are simply one-year rentals, pro athletes making a cameo appearance on campus before inevitably heading to the pros. It’s refreshing to see someone like Hayes, who has worked extremely hard to develop into a candidate for All- Big Ten honors, still maintain his fun-loving personality.

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.”
