The Drake vs. Meek Mill Beef: Everything You Need To Know

30 Jul 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

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

The song? “Back To Back Freestyle”. Wednesday morning Toronto hip-hop icon Drake released “Back to Back,” the second in a series of diss records aimed at Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill, who instigated the conflict with a few tweets suggesting Drake didn’t write his own rhymes.Joe Carter is a retired five-time MLB All-Star and two-time World Series champ who hit a walk-off home run to win it all for the Toronto Blue Jays back in 1993. 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.

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. 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. 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.

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. Drake collaborator Quentin Miller has a songwriting credit on that song, as well as five tunes on Drake’s surprise “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.” Meanwhile, Toronto Coun. Read Mill’s full interview at Billboard, where he talks about his relationship with girlfriend Nicki Minaj, and argument the pair had over their “All Eyes on You” collaboration featured on the former’s new album, Dreams Worth More Than Money. Drake also referenced Mill’s role as an opening act for The Pinkprint Tour: “You love her then you gotta give the world to her, Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour.” The final nail in the coffin was a bank statement comparison between Mill and Minaj. “Shout out to all my boss b-tches wife-ing n—as, Make sure you hit him with the prenup, Then tell that man to ease up.” The track’s cover art is another apparent diss: a photo of Joe Carter of the Torontos Blue Jays’ win against the Philadelphia Phillies in the 1993 World Series. But it’s weighing heavy on my conscience… I didn’t wanna do it, gave me every reason… I don’t wanna hear about this ever again, not even when she tell ’em that they better at friends.

And just like that, a mere 125 characters sparked a firestorm across the Internet and in the media questioning both Drake’s rapping abilities and the authenticity of MC’s across the industry. After Meek first accused Drake of using a ghostwriter, Toronto city councilor Norm Kelly tweeted that Meek is no longer welcome in the 6, as the cool kids call Toronto. After releasing a surprise mixtape in February that immediately shot to #1 (and spawned countless hits), hopping onto others’ tracks with features and viral remixes that subsequently became hip-hop radio hits, and headlining the summer festival circuit, Drake is undoubtedly at the top of his game. The initial response across the web was mixed, with questions swirling around Drake’s legitimacy, fellow rappers coming to his defense, and others pointing to a history of ghostwriting in hip-hop. Drake himself was silent on the issue (apart from an alleged Instagram comment to a fan) until Sunday when he responded in the best way he could — with a diss rap called “Charged Up”.

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. He responded to the ghostwriting allegations with: “This for y’all that think that I don’t write enough / They just mad ’cause I got the Midas touch,”. 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.
