Drake vs. Meek Mill.

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.In response, Drake released “Charged Up” followed by “Back to Back Freestyle,” the latter making fun of Mill’s relationship with Nicki Minaj, who he is currently opening for on tour.

Meek Mill finally fired back at Drake in their social media fueled feud Thursday night, dropping the diss song “Wanna Know” on New York’s Hot 97 radio station. 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. Meek Mill’s response to Drake’s bashing is the track “Wanna Know,” which includes the line, “I just wanna know, if you ain’t write that running through the six s—/Tell us who the f— Quentin out here running through the six with?” The song also features what appears to be rapper Quentin Miller — Drake’s supposed ghost writer — singing a reference track for the recent Drake song “Know Yourself.” The cover art for the song shows Drake’s face photoshopped over a member of infamous lip-syncers Milli Vanilli, with a drawing of a ghost behind him.

In the first verse, Mill raps, “Now when that s–t went down with Chris, you wrote a check / In New Orleans wore my chain to get respect (you a fraud) / So what that tell me? 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. And when Meek Mill was imprisoned on a parole violation, Drake publicly wore a T-shirt that read “Free Meek Mill.” But it was radio silence on the @Drake account. Fans hoping for an intense battle between Drake and Mill were left largely disappointed by the one-sided exchange—by Wednesday morning, Mill had yet to respond to two diss tracks, “Charged Up” and “Back to Back,” released by Drake consecutively. “This is the reason people hire ghostwriters. #WeDidntWannaKnow,” tweeted the councillor, who has won international attention for his part in the feud. Recently, a former senior advisor to president Barack Obama called the feud “brilliant marketing” tweeting: “I am ambivalent on Meek Mill as a rapper, but baiting Drake into a week long feud just as his album dropped is brilliant marketing.”

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. 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. 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.
