Drake destroys Meek Mill with surprise ‘Back to Back’ diss record.

The Toronto-born rapper has become the target of speculation this week, accused of hiring a ghostwriter to pen his verse for their “R.I.C.O.” collaboration, off Mill’s latest album, “Dreams Worth More Than Money.” “Stop comparing drake to me too… He don’t write his own raps!The Canadian rapper released a new single called Back To Back on Wednesday where he calls out Nicki Minaj’s fiancé for basically riding on her coattails.On early Wednesday morning, around 5:00 a.m. in Toronto, the chart-topping rapper formerly known as Aubrey Graham released the track “Back to Back Freestyle” to his SoundCloud.Her 2014 single “Anaconda” was a chart smash and burned up hip-hop clubs the world over, but its big-butt theme overshadowed the subtleties of her excellent third album, “The Pinkprint,” to the point where she was perilously close to becoming a pop novelty.

Last week, the Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill dissed Drake, insisting that the Canadian MC uses ghostwriters, in particular on their recent collaboration R.I.C.O. That’s why he ain’t tweet my album because we all found out!” Mill, born Robert Rahmeek Williams, tweeted on July 21. “I am not and never will be a ‘ghostwriter’ for drake. All y’all stare in my face and hope you could be to replace me / Snitchin’ on us without no interrogation / I stay silent ’cause we at war and I’m very patient Wow, I’m honored that you think this is staged / I’m flattered man, in fact I’m amazed / The perfect start to the summer man, this shit is a doozy / This shit is twistin’ the movie, but don’t jump to any conclusions / You boys aren’t getting’ any of your feelins on me / You should embrace it this could be one of our realest moments / OK, the flow’s startin’ to feel familiar, don’t it? / Must I remind you that Jimmy got twenty million on it Seen it all comin’ I knew they would push a button / Easter egg huntin’, they gotta look for somethin’ / I’m done doin’ favors for people / ’Cause it ain’t like I need the money I make off a feature / I see you niggas havin’ trouble goin’ gold / Turnin’ into some so-and-so’s that no one knows.

The fight began when Philadelphia’s Meek Mill went on a Twitter tirade against Drake claiming the ‘0 to 100’ rapper did not write his verses for many of his own hit songs, including his appearance on Mill’s new album. And the song, coming on the heels of his Meek Mill diss track “Charged Up,” is Round 2 against Meek—only far more barbed than the first go around. It was a tone she set from the opening few minutes, kicking off the set with the introspective album ballads “I Lied” and “The Crying Game,” the latter of which focuses on the painful, drug-addled decay of a relationship. This for y’all that think that I don’t write enough / They just mad ’cause I got the Midas touch / You love her, then you gotta give the world to her/Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour? / I know that you gotta be a thug for her / This ain’t what she meant when she told you to open up more / Yeah, trigger fingers turn to Twitter fingers / Yeah, you getting bodied by a singing n—a / I’m not the type of n—a that’ll type to n—as / And shout to all my boss bitches wifin’ n—as / Make sure you hit him with the pre-nup / Damn, tell that man to ease up / I did another one, I did another one / You still ain’t did shit about the other one.

Drake has not publicly spoken about the accusations but has released two response songs, ‘Charged Up’ which was released as part of his OVO Sound Radio program on Saturday, and Wednesday’s ‘Back to Back’ which features a photo of Carter’s iconic homer that gave Drake’s home town the World Series victory over Meek Mill’s Phillies. For those who’ve been too wrapped up in Trump’s elaborate coif or Tom Brady’s deflategate suspension, last week Meek Mill, a 28-year-old Philly rapper whose greatest claim to fame is dating Nicki Minaj, unleashed a Twitter tantrum against Drake, who guests on Meek’s recent single “R.I.C.O.” Meek claimed that Drake didn’t compose his lyrics on the track, instead seeking out the services of a ghostwriter—a big no-no in the hip-hop community where, even in the post-Diddy era of sampling, originality is paramount: Rick Ross sided with Drizzy, Chris Brown trolled Drizzy, and Meek issued a very public onstage apology to his girlfriend/Drake BFF/rumored Drake ex Nicki Minaj for his itchy Twitter finger. Mill, who is currently dating and sharing a stage with Nicki Minaj on tour, apologized to Minaj for the outburst, but for the leader of the OVO Sound, it was too little, too late. The Pinkprint rapper, who already works overtime recording, performing, and campaigning on behalf of increasing the number of big asses per club capita, has recently been ambushed on all sides from an onslaught of shade.

But if Mill is hot, Drake is perhaps the biggest thing going in hip-hop in the recent years, and his cultural influence has only expanded with his recent partnership with Apple, thought to be worth $19m. In her first battle, Minaj had to take out Taylor Swift when the narcissistic singer-dater-gazelle insisted on criticizing Nicki for protesting the “Anaconda” VMA snubbing. Minaj was making a point about how difficult it is for black women to gain widespread acclaim or recognition—and Taylor Swift, a white lady, obliterated the larger point by making it personal.

As has been the case on previous dates on the “Pinkprint” tour, Minaj’s fiancé and opener, Meek Mill, duetted on the Philadelphia rapper’s track “Bad for You.” Neither was playing coy about their feelings for the other, and the two locked lips, to the delight of the crowd. In turn, Minaj channeled the raw anger that we all experience when we think about how much time Taylor Swift spends with Calvin Harris’s abs, and dragged her with the facts (Taylor Swift translation: took her down by flaunting her superior intellect). Mill, who was clearly sick of swiffering Minaj’s recording studio and folding her fishnets like a good boy, went a little stir crazy and took his anger out on the nearest Canadian: Minaj’s BFF Drake.

Like a particularly salty Yo Momma contestant, Safaree has landed the amateur rapper’s insult trifecta: claiming he ghostwrote Nicki’s tracks, insulting her boyfriend’s face, and talking about his own penis. In the stupidest celebrity career suicide since Plaxico Burress accidentally shot himself, Mill accused the (much better, much more famous) rapper of using ghostwriters on his hit tracks. In addition to potentially killing his own career, Meek might get himself actually killed—by the millions of women who he’s attempting to convince that Drake’s emotional, romantic rhymes are disingenuous.

Kendrick Lamar dismissed the practice on his recent song King Kunta: “A rapper with a ghostwriter?/ What the fuck happened?” Indeed, creativity is valued over almost everything else in hip-hop. The Sugarhill Gang rapper Big Bank Hank used some of Grandmaster Caz’s rhymes on the genre’s first big hit, 1979’s Rapper’s Delight, without so much as bothering to change his ID. “I’m the C-A-S-N/the O-V-A/ and the rest is F-L-Y,” he rhymed, inadvertently shouting out the name of Caz’s alter-ego, Casanova Fly.

Safaree then released a diss track called “Lifeline,” the second Minaj-related diss track from the rapper who totally has other things going on in his life and definitely isn’t hiding under Nicki Minaj’s princess canopy bed indefinitely. Kanye West has been accused of using uncredited ghostwriters, including Consequence. “I helped out with some of the rhymes from ‘Champion’,” Consequence told MTV, describing the Graduation track. “I mean, there’s a lot of joints [that were not credited].” And that’s the rub. In his debut cry for attention, “Love the Most,” Samuels referenced Minaj’s reported pill problem, and called her out for macking with Nas in a music video.

Safaree continues his no holds barred verbal assault on Meek Mill, claiming that the rapper could stand to tone: “I heard you told Philippe Chow you ain’t goin’ there…You outta shape anyway, you need to eat a pear.” That is very rude, Safaree! Others point out that Miller has lots of credits on Drake’s most recent mixtape, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, and he was even given a co-writing credit for R.I.C.O. In “Lifeline,” Safaree repeats “I don’t care” over and over again, as if by saying it three times and looking into a mirror he could actually make apathy appear. Instead of showing off his replacement girlfriend or bragging about his unannounced, possibly fictitious VH1 show, Safaree should follow Minaj’s lead by building a bridge and actually getting over it.
