Meek Mill gave Drake a subtle shout-out in his upcoming single “What’s Beef” remix.
The Philly rapper previewed the track on IG last night and the big takeaway from what we’ve heard so far is the namedropping of Drake. In a recent interview, Meek Mill sounded like he wants to once again collaborate with Drake following their controversial beef in 2015 that did some damage to his career. Who can forget that infamous “Back To Back” diss record Drizzy dropped and it took a whole light year for Meek to respond with a diss track that was absolutely trash.
These days the two rappers, who were good friends before the beef, have since squash everything, but that doesn’t mean they are friends. Our OVO sources told us that Drake and Meek Mill have not spoken to each other since the beef even though they have both moved on from it. Hence the reason why this shout-out Meek gave the Toronto rapper in this upcoming track is all the more surprising.
“Is we beefin’ or rappin’? I might just pop up with Drizzy like what’s,” Meek raps. Now we want to hear the rest of the song to hear where he is going with this lyrics. It could just be a marketing ply by Meek to inject some of Drake sauce in his new music to say to the fans, “see we squash the beef.” Or perhaps he is extending an olive branch to Drake to make amends with what he did on Twitter the night their beef started.
The Dreamchasers rapper didn’t reveal when the full version of the song will be released, but in the meantime you can listen to a short preview below. Drizzy is currently getting ready to drop his new album Scorpion next month. Here is the video preview of Meek’s song.
