Meek Mill just can’t seem to stay out of gossip site headlines. Over the weekend Meek’s IG fingers got the best of him. The “Lord Knows” rapper started beef with hip hop’s king of controversy, 50 Cent.
The 50 Cent vs Meek Mill beef started when sites started speculating Meek’s new song “Gave ‘Em Hope,” took shots at 50 Cent with lines like:
“I got 50 reasons say you’re taking d**k / And it’s 50 reasons I should kill, ni**a.”
“Got the richest chick, she from your hood.”
Needless to say 50 shot back and we all know, once you get the “Power” creator started, there’s no stopping him.
Fellow G-Unit rapper Tony Yayo joined in on the fun and also went at Meek on IG:
This wound cuts pretty deep; 50 Cent already had beef with Meek’s boss, rapper Rick Ross. Unfortunately 50 Cent crushed Ross in that battle, to the point where Fiddy was taken to court back in July of 2015 by the mother of Ross’ child for leaking a sex tape.
Do you think Meek Mill came at 50 Cent in, “Gave ‘Em Hope?” Meek already faced (and continues to) a lot of ridicule for this battle with Drake… to the point where people are still talking about it. Is his career really over?
Two weeks ago when Meek Mill came after Drake on social media, it sent the hip hop industry into a frenzy. No one saw that coming, especially since Drake was just featured on one of Meek’s latest songs “R.I.C.O” on his new album “Dreams Worth More Than Money.”
Putting the two rappers’ latest collaboration aside, Drake is friends and works very closely with the “Lord Knows” artist’s girlfriend Nicki Minaj. So it poses the question: Why did Meek Mill attack Drake on social media for the whole world to see?
After Meek accused Drake of having a ghostwriter fans began to take sides. Even radio station personalities Funkmaster Flex and Charlamagne chimed in. Things got ugly really quickly, to the point where City Councillor, Norm Kelly banned Meek Mill from Toronto.
Both rappers released consecutive diss tracks about each other within the past two weeks, but fans weren’t impressed. When you compare this rap feud to the likes of the Nas vs Jay Z and Biggie vs Tupac beef, the lyrics on these modern day diss records were unimpressive from both parties.
Given the situation we all expected harder punchlines, but music has to keep up with the speed of technology. Diligence has taken a backseat and it certainly showed in the Meek Mill vs Drake feud.
Minaj and Drake are more like industry brother and sister (even though Drake has practically professed his love for the rap diva). One can’t help but ask: Why didn’t Nicki Minaj stop Meek from beefing with Drake on Twitter?
Did Meek Mill and Drake purposely go easy on each other on their diss tracks? Was this all a publicity stunt or did Meek commit career suicide?
After serving five months in prison for gun and drug charges, Meek Mill was released from jail yesterday.
He may be out of prison, but he’s not a completely free man. Meek cannot travel outside the Philadelphia area, so appearances and shows won’t be booked until his arrangements are approved.
Meek will also be required to attend counseling and do community service. Although the “Flexing” rapper is still somewhat restricted, it’s a small price to pay to get back into the booth.
Since then, rappers have took to Twitter welcoming the 27-year-old rapper back home:
