There seems to be a lot of beefing going around. With Niki Minaj dissing Taylor Swift, now the big boys seem to be getting into it as well.
The bare knuckles thrown by Drake and Meek Mill over the recent past have been the source of heat in the world’s entertainment circles. The spat between the rappers is into its second week, and it getting dirty.
Here is the shortest possible recap, just in case you haven’t been following up every twist and turn: Meek Mill is accusing Drake of using a ‘ghost writer’ for R.I.C.O, a track they recorded together for Meek’s album, Dreams worth More Than Money.
Drake responded with a diss track aimed at Meek. But Meek called the song ‘’baby lotion soft’ ’and he was supposed to premiere a rebuttal on New York’s Hot 97 on Monday night but the evening came and went without a new track. Drake took the opportunity to go on the offensive and released another new track, ‘’Back to Back,’’ on SoundCloud early Wednesday morning.
And this is where we are now.
It remains to be seen if this is just a fun summer diversion or a real beef, but it feels like it’s gobbling up everything in the music world right now.
Would it have been more mature of Drake to ignore the whole thing? Yeah. He’s the biggest name in rap right now. But I’m glad Drake didn’t ignore it. 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. Now, the world feels new.
So I’m Team Drake! Because that ‘Back to Back’ track is just sick!
This for y’all that think that I don’t write enough,
They’re just mad because I got the MIDAS TOUCH.
You love her then you gotta get a world tour
Is that a world tour or your girls tour
I now that you gotta be a thug for her
This ain’t what she means when she told you to open up for her
Trigger fingers turn to twitter fingers
You getting bodied by a singing nigga
I’m not the type of nigga that will type to niggas
And shout to all my boss b*tches that are wifing niggas
Make sure you hit him with a prenup
Then tell that man to ease up
I did another one, I did another one
You still ain’t did sh*t about the other one
Got the drink in me . . . going back to back
This track just got everybody saying ‘OOOWWWWW!’
For the last seven days, we’ve had an entire little world of Drake and Meek, and it’s been beautiful. This is an internet fight that you can watch from the outside; a spectator sport for those of us who don’t like balls. Eventually, most of the world will forget about this fight, however for now, we are loving it. Meek, we are really waiting for the comeback because if you keep silent, Drake has won this one.
