Young Money’s Drake covers the new 100th issue of The FADER and dishes on his short-live, but memorable, feud with one-time pal Meek Mill.
Within his cover feature, Drizzy admits he knew his hard-hitting “Back to Back” anthem would make things tough for Meek.
It was then that he decided to just go ahead and do another song. “I was like, ‘I’m gonna probably just finish this.’ And I know how I have to finish it. This has to literally become the song that people want to hear every single night, and it’s gonna be tough to exist during this summer when everybody wants to hear [this] song that isn’t necessarily in your favor.” (The FADER)

Meek’s girlfriend Nicki Minaj recently addressed his public Twitter disses toward Drake allegedly having a ghostwriter.
“And that’s the thing people don’t understand. Meek is a grown ass man. I may not agree with everything he says,” Nicki said before Meek weighed in saying, “She likes none of that sh*t. No matter who I’m talking to.” (GQ)
This week, Atlanta rapper Future refused to pick sides in the Drake/Meek dispute.
“On some real sh*t, I love Meek. And the Drake situation, I feel like genuinely we’ve been building a great relationship over these years. We got history together. We went on a few tours together so it was like, publicly, some things was said and it was took out of context. We put it all behind us, went on a sold-out tour and we built from that and I feel like it’s genuine, it’s authentic, and we built trust between each other.” (XXL)
Some gossip blogs speculated Drake may have busted off a shot at Meek on his new song “30 For 30 Freestyle.”
“30 For 30 Freestyle” is the final track on Drake’s new mixtape with Future, and fans are going crazy over the alleged disses toward Meek. Weeks after their highly-publicized feud, the 28-year-old raps, “I say hats off for a solid effort/but we didn’t flinch for a second/we got our s–t together/ yeah, not here to fight wars.” Is he saying that Meek’s effort was commendable, but wasn’t quite enough to win the war?!
