Young Money’s Nicki Minaj recently delved into her relationship with high-profile boyfriend Meek Mill and his now-infamous Twitter disses toward labelmate Drake last summer.
Instead of harping on what went down, Minaj and Meek played off the controversy the Twitter moment sparked.
“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)
Reports this week suggested Future may have singled out Meek on his new song “Big Rings.”
Drake’s OVO Sound Radio is currently premiering their highly anticipated collaborative album, What a Time To Be Alive. A few songs in, some listeners on Twitter caught what could be a subliminal diss by Future towards Meek Mill on “Big Rings.” He raps, “You just a battle rapper, I’m an official trapper,” which could be interpreted as him choosing Drizzy’s side in their ongoing feud.

Some gossip blogs speculated Drake may have busted off a shot at Meek on the 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?!
