Meek Mill and 50 Cent have recently been throwing attacks at each other on social media, drumming up another rap beef, reports TMZ. 50 Cent’s Instagram page has been filled with memes mocking Meek Mill for the last 24 hours or so. Meanwhile, Meek Mill’s Instagram page hasn’t really been throwing as much shade on 50, instead promoting his recent 4/4 EP. But just after Mill was embarrassed by Drake, what brought on this beef with 50?
Meek Mill reignited the Drake beef on Saturday when he released 4/4 EP, with a song specifically talking about the Toronto rapper. In the song “I’m Da Plug Freestyle,” Meek Mill stepped on on Drake and Future’s What a Time to Be Alive track “Jumpman.”
“Jumpman, Jumpman, Jumpman / Ain’t nobody tell ’em this ain’t what they want, man / You ain’t really write it, I’m like ‘who’s your stuntman?,'”
Meek Mill raps, bringing up those rumors of Drake using ghostwriters, which is what started their beef originally in 2015.
Mill makes another reference to Drake’s “Started From the Bottom” and also brings up lines from Drake’s “Back to Back.” However when it comes to this new diss track, “I’m Da Plug Freestyle” just does not deliver. For one, many hip-hop heads have been saying that Meek Mill is months late on this response, and in the shadow of Drake’s diss track “Back to Back” being nominated for a Grammy, Meek Mill’s retort pales in comparison. In fact, Drake pretty much ignored the diss track on Saturday, instead dropping a new track with A$AP Rocky, while anticipation is building for Drake’s Views From the 6. This is where 50 jumped in.

50 Cent joined in on the jokes, making fun of Meek Mill for his weak diss track after hearing Meek bringing up 50 filing for bankruptcy. “LMAO Hey s*** head, your career is already over. you better focus on geting Nicki pregnant so you can at least get child support girl,” 50 Cent wrote in an Instagram post.
But the jokes did not stop there. 50 kept going, dropping several posts and memes, mocking the Philadelphia rapper and his failed attempt at an insult.
Meek Mill did finally respond, not producing any memes of 50 Cent, but simply displaying a photo of him holding stacks of cash, and with a very long caption.
“U pop s**t on social media 24/7… U never in the places everybody b at…. The whole queens say you a rat…. Ross baby mom hit you for that check you sick…. Ross finished you ‘career over? How dare you speak on that?…. All you artist that came under you broke’ ya son hate you smfh! Ya swag on below ‘0’ lol hold up….. U always hating on puff and Hov other go getters from ya city…… U going broke and you miserable…. U really miserable bro…. You like 40 on the internet all day.”
Drake, however, is the one who comes out on top here. Yet again, Drake didn’t really have to pay any attention to whatever Meek was trying to say in the 4/4 EP, which dropped hours before Drake dropped new music on OVO Sound Radio on Apple Music. The rapper remains unscathed. Rumors of Drake dropping a previously unused Meek Mill diss track, “3peat,” began circulating the internet. However, a source close to the rapper claims he’s doubtful if Drake will be releasing that anytime soon. The source claims that if “3peat” were to drop, it would officially end Meek Mill’s rap career.
According to Mic, if Drake’s “3 Peat” were to drop, the song would include these lyrics: “Dealing with these n****s man it take a lot / Been saying f*** a chaser when we taking shots / Look man, I said you don’t want that threepeat / Got you acting like a b**** cause you ain’t get the retweet.”
Drake’s Views From the 6 currently does not have a release date.
