Soulful singer Erykah Badu recently gave her thoughts on the publicized war of words between Young Money’s Drake and Maybach Music Group stud Meek Mill.
Badu co-signed the hip-hop battle and called it a positive for the genre.
“Loved it. That’s what hip-hop is about to me. I liked that. That’s the way we’re supposed to handle it! I encourage it.” (Noisey)
A few days ago, Meek went at Drizzy during a live concert in Philadelphia.

Last week, Maybach Music Group’s Wale spoke on Meek and Drake’s feud.
“I honestly think like he brought a pencil to a gun fight,” Wale said referring to Meek Mill. “He ain’t bring a knife. He brought a pen to a piece of paper. He tried to paper cut him to death. You can’t compete with somebody that has that types of relationship. I’m telling every one who thought Meek lost just off the strength of losing, it doesn’t matter what he made, he could have wrote ‘Ether 3.0,’ the opinions of the people would have been that of the boy from Canada waxed him. I’ma tell you why – my man went to Apple – and my man went to Funk Flex–and there’s nothing wrong with Flex–but we talking about Apple, champ. They can hear this in Germany, bruh.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
Recently, Meek’s hip-hop girlfriend Nicki Minaj revealed her issues with the Drake feud.
It was getting dark outside when I asked about Drake, Meek, Wayne and Williams. Minaj hadn’t turned on lights, so she was in shadow. ‘‘They’re men, grown-ass men,’’ she said. ‘‘It’s between them.’’ How does it make you feel, I ask? ‘‘I hate it,’’ she said. ‘‘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.’’ (New York Times Magazine)
