Drake disses Meek Mill in new freestyle: ‘Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour?’.

Drake and Meek Mill’s recent beef has been the talk of the music industry over the last few weeks, and now the Toronto rapper is looking to end the fight with a new single that features Blue Jays’ Joe Carter’s World Series home run as its cover art. 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.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.Fresh from their onstage smooch at Barclays Center on Sunday, Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj are continuing their PDs of A in the new video for “All Eyes on You” (taken from Meek’s latest album, “Dreams Worth More Than Money”).The Canadian rapper has released three new songs, one of which is a diss track, clearly aimed at Meek called Charged Up on Beats 1 OVO Sound Radio show.

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. 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. In it, Drake raps: “I stay silent ’cause we’re at war and I’m very patient/ 6 God is watching/ I just hope you’re prepared to face him/ I’m charged up/ Wow, I’m honored you think this is staged/ I’m flattered, man/ In fact, I’m amazed.” Meek Mill was set to share his own ‘diss’ track. Another line asks, “Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour?” calling out Mill’s opening slot on girlfriend Nicki Minaj’s The Pinkprint Tour. 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.

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. 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. 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). After just a few months of dating, Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose lined up his model girlfriend Stephanie Seymour to cameo in both “Don’t Cry” and 1992’s ridiculously overblown nine-minute video for “November Rain.” Shortly afterward, the two separated, with each accusing the other of being physically abusive. Rumors of a sham marriage dogged Jacko and Lisa Marie Presley throughout their brief relationship in the mid-’90s, and this awkward video didn’t do much to help matters. 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. It’s kind of hard to convince people you’re still the same old girl from The Bronx when you make a music video featuring your beefcake boyfriend cavorting on a yacht. 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. It’s something J.Lo learned the hard way when she and then-beau Ben Affleck appeared in 2002’s widely mocked “Jenny From the Block.” No wonder Bennifer called it quits a couple of years later. 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.

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. Seal and Heidi Klum had been married for five years before appearing on film, gently stroking each other’s skin in the video for “Secret” in 2010. 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. 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. He also rhymed “good” with “hood,” “cool” with “fool,” and “bills” with “pills.” For all of us, Nicki, please send Drake’s new body to confiscate Safaree’s rhyming dictionary and disconnect your credit card info from his Amazon account. “Lifeline” picks up where “Love the Most” left off—a relatable diss track for everyone who is so over their ex, and so obviously superior to them, that they will literally never ever stop talking about it.

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.
