Meek Mill Explains Why He Called Out Drake
While onstage at Nicki Minaj's The Pinkprint tour stop in Virginia last night (July 22), Meek Mill addressed the reason why he went off on Twitter about Drake. In a video captured by a concert goer, the MMG rapper says, "I was just upset as a fan that a n---a gave me a verse he ain't write. Shout out to Drake. Let him be great in all the motherf---ing lanes he great in. But I'm gonna still be the realest n----in this bitch!" The verse Meek was referring to appears on his track "R.I.C.O.," which is featured on Meek's recent Dreams Worth More Than Money album. Watch that video above.
Before leaving the stage, the Philadelphia native makes a point to apologize to his girlfriend. Onika and Drake have been like brother and sister over the years, so Meek felt it was appropriate to apologize to his lady. Watch Meek's apology below.
Tuesday night (July 21), Mill went off on Twitter, accusing the Young Money rapper of having a ghostwriter. “Stop comparing Drake to me too…. He don’t write his own raps! That’s why he ain’t tweet my album because we found out!" tweeted Meek. He also asserted that if he had known Drake didn't write the verse, the "6 God" wouldn't have been on Meek's recent LP.
Drake sort of responded to Meek's allegations, but not publicly. However, his producer and right-hand man Noah "40" Shebib spoke up and said anyone who thinks Drake doesn't write his own rhymes is on something. Funkmaster Flex also joined the conversation, recently leaking the alleged reference track that Drizzy used for "10 Bands."
