It’s about time!
Rapper Meek Mill released his response to Drake’s “Charged up” and “Back to Back” with the track, “Wanna Know.”
The beef was brought to the public eye on July 21st, when Meek tweeted “Stop comparing drake to me too…. He don’t write his own raps! That’s why he ain’t tweet my album because we found out!”
He continued tweeting about other rappers and their skills. He closed by directing one last comment to Drake saying “He ain’t even write that verse on my album and if I woulda knew I woulda took it off my album….. I don’t trick my fans! Lol” (in reference to the track Drake was featured on titled R.I.C.O)
Drake did not respond to any of Meek’s tweets via twitter but began to respond on his first diss track “Charged Up”. Drake stated “ No woman ever had me star struck or was able to tell me to get my bars up.” Drake was referring to Meek’s relationship with rapper Nicki Minaj, where Meek is said to be the less popular and lyrical of the two.
Critics and fans of Drake stated that this song wasn’t a real diss record. Rapper Meek Mill responded on twitter saying “baby lotion soft” referring to the track. A few days later Drake dropped “Back to Back,” the second diss track directed at Meek. Drake rapped, “ Is that a world tour or your girls tour?”
Referring to the Nicki Minaj’s Pink Print tour that Meek is currently accompanying her on. Fans went crazy over this track saying the first track “Charged Up” was just the warm up.
Days passed and songs were released but there was still no track from Meek until last night when he FINALLY premiered his track “Wanna Know” on Funk Flex’s show on Hot 97. Drake posted a picture of himself laughing on Instagram, a few minutes after Meek’s release.
That post showed fans exactly how Drake feels about the song. You can check Meek’s song “Wanna Know” out yourself @funkflex on soundcloud.com. To listen to Drake’s songs search @octobersveryown on souncloud.com
