Drake vs. Meek Mill wages on

Richie Kamtchoum

Drake owned summer 2015. There should be no if, ands, or buts about it. "Back to Back" was scathing and caught a lot of music listeners off-guard, with a majority of fans forgetting Drake's calling card was/is his vivid lyricism (comeback season days) and A+ bravado. Meek was the despondent loser, left for dead. He almost upstaged Jordan as the saddest meme on the web. Who could really blame Drake for being so vicious with his barbs? Meek Mill insinuated amongst the worst things one can accuse a rapper of doing, implementing a ghostwriter. Whether these claims had or still have any merit behind them remains to be seen and will probably never come to light. However, what we do know is that Meek Mill is not dead and is in fact very much alive. After releasing a lukewarm 4/4 EP in anticipation for his DC4 tape, Meek released another series of the 4/4 EP, with "War Pain" dissing Drake. 

The first single off of Views from the 6 is a more calculated Drake expanding on his recent sound. "Summer Sixteen" is a banger filled with subliminal disses across the board. Drake gets a boost for throwing shots at stars and cultural icons as big or arguably bigger than him. First is the jab to President Barack Obama with "Tell Obama that my verses are just like the whips that he in/ They bulletproof". Obama famously chose Kendrick Lamar over Drake in a rap battle and seems to like him as much as anyone in contemporary music. With a rumored cold-war between Lamar and Drake, the diss is sure to entice an actual feud between the two if either one of them makes it painstakingly clear they are  dissing the other (I thought Lamar made it pretty clear at the 2013 BET Hip-Hop Awards..). Then comes the Meek mill jab, "I let the diss record drop, you was staying right below me, n****/We must have played it a hundred times, you was going to bed/Why would I put on a vest, I expect you to aim for the head?". Fire, sure, but it didn't sound realistic at first, until matched up with "War Pain" (more on that later). Drake also quickly debunks up-and-coming Toronto artist, Tory Lanez, with a not so subliminal reference to the "The New Toronto", the name of a Tory Lanez mixtape. Drake sets his sights even higher when he takes aim for the throne, a position he has had his sights on for sometime. The line, "I used to wanna be on Roc-A-Fella then I turned into Jay" made some diehards uneasy, but he's not that far off commercially, Jay-Z has just been doing it longer. In regards to what Jay-Z means to the culture, that's another discussion. The point is that Drake has seemed to ascend to another level of confidence he started previewing on Nothing Was The Same. He even playfully digs at Kanye West's pool. Surely the internet ate the song up instantly, and the song has even gone on to debut top 10 on the Billboard 100.

Fortunately, music fans didn't get long to decipher Drake's single, as Meek stormed out of a side-gate with 4/4 EP 2 a mere 15 minutes later. Drake stans probably won't admit it, but this was a much better diss than "Wanna Know" and proves Meek still has some fire inside. The difference is immediate with the quality of the sound production. Meeks voice is clear throughout the song and his lyrics are pronounced and enunciated, as he caught a bunch of flak for his former Drake diss sounding like it was recorded in a bathroom. This speaks to the rushed effort and microwave society in which Meek had to deliver another diss so quickly, while on tour at that. It also makes it more impressive Drake delivered not one, but two diss tracks in the span of a weak that were lyrically and musically solid. "War Pain" quickly confirms Drake's allegations that he booked a room above Meek Mill to troll him. However, Meek spins it, insinuating Drake is in fact soft for trolling and not confronting him in person, "Location: Toronto; Status: five star hotel, Four Seasons. Them chumps right upstairs, they know not to come down here playin' no real n*****". Aside from the typical barbs, he references bars in direct relation to Summer Sixteen such as "And you claimin' you HOV now? Why you state that ","Tory from the 6, you hatin' on him, Lord knows", and "Me and Nicki watchin' the Sixers, I'm closin' more deals". The latter was said while Meek and Nicki were at a Sixers-Warriors game against the Warriors, in which Drake referenced the Warriors practicing at his house. Which means, either someone in Drake's camp leaked the song to Meek, he actually has a ghostwriter, or Meek wrote and recorded the song in 10 minutes while at the Sixers game (impossible). Either way, it is not the best look for Drake, and a terrific tactical move from Meek, taking a page out of Drake's book. Meek Mill is not dead, and with the confusion surrounding the diss tracks, I'd argue he has built some momentum for the full fledged assault that will be DreamChasers 4. Things are definitely getting interesting.
