Meek Mill shares details about dating Nicki Minaj, issues with Drake

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

Rapper Meek Mill is outspoken about many things, but in a new interview with Billboard, he admits making a political statement isn’t something that’s particularly easy for him to do. “I’m scared to be political,” he told the magazine in an interview released Wednesday. “You get too powerful and more people try to take you out.Hours after Drake hit Meek Mill with his second haymaker—a banger by the name of “Back to Back”—New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady channeled his inner Drizzy and hit the studio.

My son ain’t trying to hear that his dad got put away because he was fighting for the country.” Mill, originally from Philly, also spoke about his 2008 arrest. At the time he was 18 years old and was convicted of gun and drug charges, spending a year in prison. “[The police] beat the sh-t out of me,” he alleged to Billboard. “[I had] a concussion, stitches, braids ripped out.

That song was a response to Mill’s claims that Drake used a ghostwriter to write his verse on “R.I.C.O.” off Mill’s Dreams Worth More Than Money. “Back to Back” now says Mill has “trigger fingers turned to Twitter finger” — a clear reference to when the Philly rapper tweeted the accusations at Drake. And it’s attracted Toronto city councillor Norm Kelly (open Norm Kelly’s policard) (or whichever young staffer is running his Twitter feed), who has trolled Meek Mill in a series of tweets. Through a track titled “Hold Please,” B/R’s imaginary Brady spits fire at Goodell, scorching those pesky accusations of destroying his phone to hide information from the league. 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.

And in each of this week’s salvo he has embedded references to Toronto’s sports glory. “I get a ring and bring it home like I’m Cory Joe,” he says on “Charged Up,” the first shot in the lyrical one-two he launched this week, a reference to Durham Region native and new Raptors point guard Cory Joseph leaving the Spurs. He’s a rotation player, but a few steps below stardom, and you helped him gain his footing in the league when you played on the same team for a while.

There isn’t anyone who can match his ferocity or ruthlessness — there’s even a popular series of Vines in which adorable children dunk on their helpless siblings, and it was created in his honor. He’s telling people you haven’t come up with a single original move, and that you have someone working with you in the gym who invents your every flashy dribble, layup, and dunk. So instead of shaming Meek Mill into replying, we’ve examined the history of on-field conflict between Toronto and Philadelphia and found three Philly victories, hoping they’ll jump-start his creative process.

But on the morning of Game 7, Raptors superstar Vince Carter hopped a flight to Chapel Hill, N.C., to walk across the stage and receive his degree from UNC. But if you lose — and there’s a decent chance you lose, because you’re going against one of the best dunkers in the world — it’s going to linger for a long time. You could be inducted into the Hall of Fame one day, but a permanent record of your embarrassment will remain on YouTube: that one time you were challenged and ended up with your ass kicked. You can size up your acquaintance and his generally mediocre portfolio of skills, and you can tell him that you don’t need to dignify his challenge with a response.

They won two before losing Game 5, and returned to Toronto needing to win a Game 6 that will be remembered for two things: Darcy Tucker’s monstrous hit on Sami Kapannen, and Jeremy Roenick’s game-winning, series-ending, crowd-silencing overtime goal. He waited a little more, watched us all tweet up a storm when Meek failed to make a response on Hot 97, and released “Back to Back.” The crowd is beside themselves right now. So he’ll almost certainly come out with haymakers, aiming squarely at Drake’s softness: the mall performances, the Madonna fiasco, and the fact that Nicki was never on his arm.

And I’m glad that Meek sent the tweet out into the world in the first place, because it became the rumble that activated a long-silent volcano of hip-hop beefs. Because Meek’s original diss was the 140-character plate-shift for two pretty good Drake tracks, some decent jokes, and a GoFundMe to help Meek pay for a diss track (which has since been deleted). He sings, he’s emotional, he’s been chasing Rihanna and Nicki for years to no avail — people have been itching to go at him since he left Canada. It was a direct shot at Meek’s rapping style, which is best described as yelling with purpose, while Drake sounded like he recorded the song in a library. Her first mixtape, Laguna Beach, dropped before the turn of the decade, and her charismatic aloofness carried her through and out of the TV circuit and into a successful career as an author, designer, and lifestyle brand mogul.

She taught us to love ourselves but only if we had style, she passed down everything she knew about the Fame Game, and we embraced her as the wise but flawed (turning down a Parisian internship for a boy with frosted tips?) LC, Queen of the Hills. The thinner, blonder, fiercer girl on the block was Kristen Cavallari, and there was something weirdly charming about the brazenness with which she sharpened her fangs.

He has not one, but two happy endings — seeing Kristen’s limo off to the airport, and then coming home to LC, who has been holding a victorious still-the-Queen grin in her pocket all this time.
