Maybach Music Group’s Gunplay has stepped up to weigh-in on the war of words between labelmate Meek Mill and Young Money’s Drake.
Instead of picking sides, Gunplay simply said both artists should keep their feud in-studio and avoid resorting to violence.
“As long as nobody say my name I’m alright. It’s good for hip-hop and as long as nobody lose they life. There’s too many innocent lives lost. Too many talented lives lost. I like how they keeping it on record. Keep it on wax, radio, tours. Nobody kill each other, please.” (HHW)
Meek blasted Drake during a two-minute freestyle a few nights ago in New Jersey.
“You don’t wanna see my Philly n*ggas hanging out the window like they tryna spot Ricky/And shout out to the n*ggas that showed me they not with me/Say I don’t think it’s about no rapping, I think it’s about Nicki/He told us he was first in line but it got tricky/I still wake up with the lady you said you first in line with/Did five months, came out, that’s perfect timing/To make a sucker n***a look simple, what I was trying/If Quentin Miller wrote that s**t why would we buy it?/Might as well go and get his tape/Is he good or is he great?/N*ggas turn to hoes, Caitlyn Jenners turn to Drizzy Drake” (YouTube)
Earlier in the week, Drake took direct aim at Meek during his annual OVO Fest music concert.
