Meek Mill Shades Drake, Twitter Explodes In Rap Wars
Meek Mill has called out fellow rapper Drake, claiming that the Canadian doesn’t write his own material. Meek, who is engaged to Nicki Minaj, fired off an extraordinary series of messages on social media last night. Meek claimed that Drake uses a ghostwriter for his material and that, if he had known, he would never have invited Drake to collaborate on his recent album.
The Daily Beast reports that a recent rap by Kendrick Lamar called out a rapper for using a ghostwriter. It was originally thought that Lamar was talking about Kanye West, who was accused of using ghostwriters back in 2007 and who credits Lamar as one of 20 writers on his recent single “All Day.” After Meek’s outburst, it seems that Lamar’s target may have been Drake rather than West.
Billboard reports that Meek’s attack on Drake took place just hours after girlfriend Minaj attacked Taylor Swift. Meek used Twitter to claim that Drake doesn’t write his own material and that he didn’t even write the piece that featured on Mill’s recent single “R.I.C.O.” off his recent Dreams Worth More Than Money album.
Meek told his 4.5 million Twitter followers that Drake doesn’t write his own raps, saying “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!”
According to The Mirror, Meek also lashed out at one of Minaj’s ex-boyfriends, Safaree Samuels, asking why he had allowed Minaj to dance provocatively with Drake in the past.
Up to now Drake, who mocked Kanye West in his recent video, has stayed out of all the drama, even though Meek began to trend worldwide with over two million tweets on the subject. Meek even closed out the subject by naming Drake’s ghostwriter as someone called Quentin Miller.
Extraordinarily, Meek even went onto his Instagram account to prove that his Twitter account had not been hacked and that he was personally responsible for the tweets dissing Drake.
Meek claims that the whole rap world knows that Drake doesn’t write his own material, but that they refuse to speak up. According to Meek, other artists in the rap world are “scared to tell the truth” and “sit back and act like they don’t know.”
Drake may not have responded to Meek Mill’s attack as yet but you can’t help but feel that this Twitter war isn’t over by a long way.
