But Meek Mill didn’t immediately respond with a track of his own. The Toronto native released two diss tracks aimed at the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania rapper in the form of “Charged Up” and “Back To Back Freestyle”.
In an interview with The Fader, Drake recently criticized Meek and Meek’s whole team on how they handled the lyrical battle, saying, “You guys didn’t think this through at all-nobody?” Drake said. “Nobody told you that this was a bad idea, to engage in this and not have something?”
Meek Mill did eventually respond with the diss track “Wanna Know”.
He explained: “Given the circumstances, it felt right to just remind people what it is that I do, in case your opinions were wavering at any point”.
This is a discussion about music, and no one’s putting forth any music? “I pretty much won’t even rap on a beat unless it’s got some magic element of new tempo or new pocket”.
Mill and his girlfriend Nicki Minaj also talked about the beef with Drake in a GQ interview.
On August. 12, Meek Mill finally posted what appeared to be a surrender on Instagram, admitting that he took responsibility for what went down and wasn’t interested in continuing with the beef. “If I have to be the vessel for this conversation to be brought up – you know, God forbid we start talking about writing and references and who takes what from where – I’m OK with it being me”.
But Drake, being the boss that he is, told his fans in what seems to be the chillest voice ever, “Don’t worry he’s already dead”.
