Meek Mill has just reignited his feud with Drake. The Philidelphia rapper has released a new EP, called 4/4, which many hip-hop fans are calling a lead up to the release of his long-awaited mixtape, Dreamchasers 4.
But with 4/4, Meek Mill takes aim at Drake, hitting back at the Toronto rapper’s previous diss track against him. On one of the songs, “I’m The Plug,” Mill directly addresses Drake’s “Back to Back” lyrics. Here’s some of what the rapper best known as Nicki Minaj’s boyfriend had to say, according to Rap-up. On the song, Mill freestyles over a beat that was used on the Future and Drake collaboration mixtape, What A Time To Be Alive.
“Was that my girl tour or the world tour? / I do not know what you pu**y ni**as goin’ for / This that 100k a night when you perform tour / Swimmin’ in that good pu**y while you on tour,” raps Nicki Minaj’s boyfriend.
The social media reaction to the new Meek Mill EP has been mixed so far. Lots of people tweeted that Meek should let his feud with Drake go.

Meek Mill may want to focus on dealing with his legal troubles instead of writing diss tracks though. As Rap-up reports, in December, 2015, he took the stand in his parole violation hearing where he pleaded with the judge to not send him back to jail.
“I’m not a gangsta. I’m not a criminal,” he said. “I have my queen, Nicki now. I’m trying to do better and feel like I can be the best rapper alive.”
He also talked about how difficult it was for him to be unable to visit his mother in the hospital when she was ill because she was in New Jersey and all of his travel out of Pennsylvania had to be approved. He also apologized for calling the D.A. a b*tch in his song, “The Ride.”
But the judge ruled against Meek. She found that he was in technical violation of his parole and set a February 5 court date for his sentencing. She also said that he cannot travel outside a five county area outside of Philly.
Meek Mill was previously convicted of gun possession and drug dealing back in 2008. He was sentenced to 11 to 23 months in prison. After his release, he was found in violation of his probation because he was consistently scheduling appearances. Mill’s travel permit was rescinded by the court in 2012, and 2013, and he was chastised for failing to accurately report his travel activity. Meek officially lost his probation in 2014 and he went to jail for 6 months, from July to December.
While Meek Mill’s legal fate is yet to be decided, the jury is still out on whether Drake will reply to the “diss” tracks on the 4/4 EP. He probably won’t since from most reports, he is busy working on his upcoming album Views From The 6. According to Complex, Views from the 6 is expected to drop in early 2016, and it seems that the Toronto rapper has only taken a break from it to shoot a music video with Rihanna in Los Angeles.
Meanwhile, Meek’s music is still banned from the Toronto Raptors’ locker room.
According to Corey Pellatt of Complex U.K., the Toronto players refuse to listen to anything rapped by Nicki Minaj’s boyfriend.
“Oh yeah, Meek Mill has been banned for a long time. No one plays Meek Mill,” star Toronto Raptors forward Patrick Patterson said in an interview with Pellatt.
