Two weeks ago, Rick Ross made his rounds on radio morning shows while promoting his new single, “Sorry,” the first official release off his forthcoming December album, Black Market. During that run, he fielded a multitude of questions about MMG rapper Meek Mill‘s beef with Drake, and what it means for the future of the Philly emcee’s career.
Naturally, now that Wale, Meek’s MMG labelmate, is promoting music of his own–he released a new record, “New Phone,” this morning, which you can listen to here–he fielded a similar lane of questioning when he sat down with Charlamagne and the crew at Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club this morning. In Wale’s opinion, Meek brought “a pencil to a gun fight,” and wasn’t as prepared as he should’ve been going at Drake, who transcends just rap fame. He also pointed at the method of releasing music being an achilles for Meek, referring to Drake’s Apple Music clout as opposed to Meek relying on Funkmaster Flex.
