Drake Accuses Meek Mill Of Riding On Nicki Minaj’s Coattails In New Diss Record (Audio)
One week later, Drake and Meek Mill are still at it. Meek may have started things, with a social media rant that called out his collaborator for relying on writers as well as an inferred line regarding Nicki Minaj. However, Drake is still the only half of the sides at odds to reply by record. Following this past weekend’s “Charged Up,” Meek (who seemingly called the reply “baby lotion soft”) vowed to deliver his own lyrical deployment via Funkmaster Flex’s HOT 97 show on Monday (July 27). As anybody staying up on the day-to-day developments of Hip-Hop culture can tell you, that didn’t happen.
Before Meek puts together his offensive attack by song, Drake returns for another audio invasion. The appropriately titled “Back To Back” may apply some chess strategy to get the Maybach Music Group #1 album-maker where it gets him especially riled up. Drake believes he’s got Meek’s two-piece with a biscuit for starting this.
In the verses, Drake maintains that he’s had the upper-hand before the confrontation started. “Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour?” stabs at Meek’s recent on-stage platform, Nicki Minaj’s The Pinkprint Tour. Tellin’ Meek he “gettin’ bodied by a singin’ nigga,” the record makes light of Meek’s street-tough past turning to a Twitter rumor-starter. “I’m not the type of nigga that’ll type to niggas.” The next bar touts, “Shout out to all my boss bitches wifin’ niggas!” There, Drizzy seems to step over Meek to dap his YMCMB label-mate (using Minaj’s cadence), while emasculating Meek in the couple’s relationship, as “wife.” He also urges Nicki to consider a prenuptial agreement, should the couple marry—an attack on Meek as a gold-digger, as well as a volatile marriage to begin with. “I don’t want to hear about this ever again / Not even when she tell him that they better as friends.” Clearly, Drake is going for Meek’s emotions and pride on this one.
From a Hip-Hop competitiveness standpoint, this couplet may stand the tallest:
“I did another one, I did another one / You still ain’t did shit about the other one.”
Originally the victim of an apparent cheap-shot, did Aubrey Drake Graham leave this run-in in better standing with his fans and peers?
For Heads unaware, the artwork features the 1993 Toronto Blue Jays’ game-winning home run by veteran Joe Carter. The slugger famously put one over the wall against shut-down closer Mitch Williams, of the Philadelphia Phillies. In a song where Drake also mentions some Philly MCs (Ar-ab) and landmarks, the OVO star uses ’90s sports to drive his point home. That ’93 Jays team featured a number of superstar skill players. Is that how Drake sees his squad?
