Last year, Meek Mill and Drake were engaged in a war of words sparked by Meek’s accusations that Drake didn’t write some of his own rhymes. Diss tracks ensued, subliminal Instagram shots were sent, and perceived alliances were formed. As recently as January of this year, Drake could be heard indirectly referencing his riff with the Philadelphia emcee, on his top 10 hit “Summer Sixteen.” However, the beef never turned physical, and it appears that both Meek and Drake have moved on (at least for now) to their own individual projects.
French Montana, who has collaborated multiple times with each rapper, was asked by Larry King during a recent appearance on Larry King Now whether not encounters like Drake and Meek Mill’s were commonplace in Hip Hop. Montana responded by saying he doesn’t feel as Drake and Meek have “real problems” with each other, and chalked their riff up to rap being a very competitive sport.
Chances are Drake and Meek, who have sent shots at each other on no less than five combined songs, aren’t taking it as lightly, but French does make a good point: nobody’s been physically harmed.
Both Meek’s Dreamchasers 4 and Drake’s Views From The 6 are due out this year.
