Since Drake’s “Hotline Bling” video dropped on Monday night, everyone has been talking about it. It’s even become one of the top trending topics on social media and on search engine results.
Now rumors are swirling that Drake is dissing his enemy Meek Mill in the “Hotline Bling” video. It features Drake dancing silly in dad clothes, and a Nicki Minaj look-a-like wearing a very provocative pair of yoga pants, according to an MStarz report. The look-a-like is seen at the 1:47 mark. The video vixen has a face and curves that are similar to Ms. Minaj. She even squats down in the female rapper’s trademark “Anaconda” pose with a pink background behind her. The color pink is also Minaj’s favorite color, as noted in her last album, The Pinkprint.
Drake made an appearance in Nicki’s “Anaconda” music video. Towards the end of the video, he sits in a chair as the rapper grinds on him. Then she walks away, as Drake appears sad and alone.
This isn’t the first time Drake has dissed Meek Mill. Over the summer, he released a diss track that hinted that Mill’s boo was sleeping with other rappers in the industry. He also told Mill that he better sign a prenup before marrying the “Hey Mama” rapper!
“You love her, then you gotta give the world to her/ Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour?
I know that you gotta be a thug for her/ This ain’t what she meant when she told you to open up more/ Yeah, trigger fingers turn to twitter fingers/ You gettin’ bodied by a singin’ n***a/ I’m not the type of nigga that’ll type to n***as/ And shout-out to all my boss bitches wife-in n***as/ Make sure you hit him with the prenup”
Nick Minaj has opened up to The New York Times on her thoughts about Drake and Meek Mill’s feud. She feels like she’s caught in between the two since she’s good friends with the Canadian rapper and former Degrassi star.
“They’re men, grown a** men. It’s between them. I hate it. It doesn’t make me feel good. You don’t ever want to choose sides between people you love. It’s ridiculous. I just want it to be over.”
Fans assumed that Drake and Meek Mill’s beef was over, but it appears that it’s far from over. Drake hasn’t stopped attacking the rapper in his diss tracks, and probably has more disses to come. The “Hotline Bling” video is just the beginning.
There are also rumors claiming that Drake will interrupt Minaj’s wedding to Meek Mill. The “Hotline Bling” rapper will object to their nuptials so that she never marries her new boyfriend.
“To be quite honest, if Nicki’s actually considering marrying this fool, Drake would stop it. He wouldn’t let her go out like that. He’d show up at the wedding and would be that guy objecting.”
Drake is aware that he’s not Minaj’s boyfriend. After all, he’s reportedly dating tennis player Serena Williams. The inside source claims that Drake still holds a candle for Minaj and doesn’t want to see her get married off.
“He may not be with Nicki right now, but please believe, Drake really doesn’t want anyone else with her either.”
Reports are already claiming that Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill are going to get married soon. The last time the engagement rumors swirled was earlier this year, when Minaj was seen rocking a big canary diamond on her wedding finger. In a series of confusing social media posts, Minaj slammed the engagement rumors. Then rumors swirled that she broke up with Mill.
Since “Hotline Bling” debuted on VEVO and YouTube on Monday, October 19, the video has been viewed almost 2 million times, and has spawned various internet memes.
