Drake and Meek Mill's ghostwriting feud may have escalated over the weekend following Meek Mill's release of a new snippet from his impending Dreamchasers 4 mixtape but will the duo's dispute lead to "physical" violence?
On Sunday, Meek Mill took to Snapchat to preview a snippet from his highly anticipated Dreamchasers 4 mixtape while also reportedly threatening to "put a gun in" Drake given their heated ghostwriting feud that began earlier this year.
In the video, which was obtained by DJ Akademiks, Meek Mill can be heard rapping, "I can't wait until we run into ya / Ima put a gun in ya," before noting that he does "not f*** with these industry n*****."
While Drake has yet to respond to Meek Mill's threat, fans instantly took to social media to weigh-in on Meek Mill's charged lyrics with most fans noting that the rapper shouldn't be focusing his new mixtape on his feud with Drake.
In addition, the nature of the lyrics has left some fans concerned about a potential physical altercation brewing between Drake and Meek Mill, however, sources close to Meek Mill and girlfriend Nicki Minaj have since dispelled rumors of an impending fight between the duo.
A source close to Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj revealed to TMZ that Meek Mill has "no master plan to take out Drake" despite their headline-making feud this year before noting that Meek's Dreamchasers 4 lyrics weren't aimed at "anyone in particular."
Similarly, the source notes that Meek Mill is dedicated to remaining on his best behavior now that he's "under a microscope in his probation violation case," which stems from a 2009 gun and drug conviction.
In regard to Meek Mill's alleged diss on Drake, a source close to the rapper allegedly reached out to Urban Islandz to deny claims that Meek has plans to physically brawl with Drake over their ghostwriting dispute.
"This is just music but in these situations there are always going to be some fans and some media outlets taking it a little bit too serious," a source close to Meek and Nicki Minaj told the site.
The source further explains that there's "no way" Meek Mill would attempt to physically fight with Drake, noting that the duo's beef "is not that serious" despite the heated exchange of lyrics that have spawned since their feud ignited earlier this summer.
"The right way to settle rap beefs is through music and that is what Meek is doing in this case," the source continues, "Your turn now Drake."
The news comes just days after Drake's alleged ghostwriter, Quentin Miller, reportedly dissed Drake by penning a new song for Meek Mill.
DJ Akademiks took to Twitter on December 28 to share a snippet of what appears to be a new Meek Mill track, noting that Quentin Miller seems to have written "a few bars" for Nicki Minaj's beau.
"Quentin Miller even gave Meek Mill a few bars," DJ Akademiks captioned the video, "Or if he didn't mean to…It sure look like it fit him…"
While it's unclear if Drake and Quentin Miller are feuding with one another, DJ Akademiks alleges that Miller may be unhappy with the amount he was paid for his work on Drake's mixtape If You're Reading This It's Too Late, especially since the mixtape became the first million-selling album released in 2015, Billboard reports.
"Listen man..Quentin Miller probably tight as f***..reportedly got paid $5000 for a month of writing..got 4 songs placed. Album did a mil," Akademiks explained on his Twitter page, "I'm waiting for Quentin Miller to pull a Safaree..and sue Drake."
