It looks like we have a rematch of last summer’s battle between Drake and Meek Mill, as both emcees have dropped new diss records. Drake opened the floodgates with “Summer Sixteen.” He alleges the night he dropped “Back to Back,” he and Meek were staying in the same hotel.
I let the diss record dropped/ You were staying right below me, nigga/ We must have played it a hundred times/ You was going to be bed
I could of killed you the first time/ You don’t have to try and say it louder/ We heard you the first time/ It’s nothing personal/ I would have done it to anyone…
Since Tory Lanez is a Toronto native, Drake saves a better beat switch and flow to send shots at the young gun.
All you boys in the new Toronto want to be me a little/ All your ex’s know I like my O’s with a V in the middle / You would love it if I went away or didn’t say nothing else / How am I keeping it real by keeping this shit to myself? / You was never gang, gang, gang, gang, you was never one of us / Had us fooled for a minute now we done all grown up / But I’m better off anyway, y’all never gon’ finish drake / Say you seeing ‘bout it when you see me man y’all never home anyway / Thought of things that you should of said, said things that you shouldn’t say / We even gave you the whole money play and ya’ll still broke to this day…
You gotta give Meek points for persistence. After that disastrous 2015, Meek has been gradually finding himself again (musically, at least.) Earlier this month, he dropped some solid songs on the 4/4 EP. Tonight, he dropped part 2 with fresh bars aimed at Drake on “War Pain.”
The plot twist here is that the lyrics reference the points Drake made on “Summer Sixteen,” making it clear that he heard the track earlier and went on the offensive. From Meek’s view of the bridge, Drake was scared to come downstairs on their mutual hotel stop. Meek also addresses Drake’s Jay Z claim, accuses him of hating on Tory Lanez, and vows to snatch an OVO chain. 50 Cent gets some stray shots as well.
Should this be left in 2015, or do these songs left you wanting more?
