Since Mayweather retired, every rapper seems to think that it doesn’t take that much to be the next boxing champion! After Chris Brown and Soulja Boy decided to settle their differences in the ring, now it’s Meek Mill’s turn to challenge his nemesis, Drake. And there are rumors about an insane prize too! By insane we mean $5 million, by the way.
The rap scene is a permanent battle and everything seems to be allowed, just like in any other war. This year we might have two big fights going on, with big money on the line. The latest headline is Meek Mill vs Drake, a normal move, considering the friction between the two. Nicki Minaj’s former boyfriend was the one who started it, through a post he made on Instagram, on Thursday night. Meek sounded quite aggressive and threatened Drake, proposing a sum, $5 million, and a ring girl, no other than Nicki Minaj.
But when and why did this fight start? Drake and Meek collaborated on “R.I.C.O.”, a track from the Philadelphia rapper’s 2015 album Dreams Worth More Than Money and everything seemed OK. Until Meek accused Drake of having a ghostwriter, that is, a big shame in the rap game. As you probably guessed, the two didn’t exchange Christmas gifts after that.
During his New Year’s Eve concert in Las Vegas, Drake assured the audience that the track “Back to Back”, one of his most famous disses, ‘dedicated’ to Meek Mill, will disappear from his lineup. Guess that didn’t soften Meek too much…
In Drake’s defense came rapper Safaree Samuels, who also used to date Nicki Minaj! Samuels said that J.Lo’s new boyfriend is too busy at this time and he’ll be more than happy to take his place. One thing is sure – if Meek Mill wants a fight, everything he needs to do is just ask for it!
