Meek Mill is grousing again that Drake doesn’t write his own rhymes.
In a new verse on the remix with Fabolous for Fat Joe and Remy Ma’s hit “All the Way Up,” Mill spits, “This is hip-hop/You ain’t write it, don’t record it/I don’t know how they getting down ‘cross the border.” Then he references Drake’s album Views by freestyling, “Views from the projects/ N—-, I’m the prospect.”
Meek Mill and Drake have been feuding since June 2015 when Mill accused Drake of hiring ghostwriters to write his raps. The accusation surfaced after Drake guest starred on Mill’s single “R.I.C.O.” from his album Dreams Worth More Than Money.
After the first salvo, the Canadian rapper responded with two tracks in July 2015, “Charged Up” and “Back to Back.” In “Charged Up (Ghost Writer),” Drake claimed he stayed silent about the beef to maintain his dignity and in “Back to Back” he claimed victory, comparing the feud to his baseball team Toronto Blue Jays’ World Series win over his rival’s team Philadelphia Phillies.
Mill’s “All The Way Up” diss comes three days after Jay Z remixed the same track. Jay used his remix to respond to his superstar wife Beyonce’s album Lemonade for the first time since the album was released, and made reference to his alleged infidelity in their marriage.
If all this friction continues we may wind up with a few more hot tracks.
