Rapper says: "I don't feel like I gotta try to prove myself to people"
The Drake–Meek Mill beef appears to be over after the latter tweeted a lengthy comment putting the issue to bed.
The pair have been involved in the high-profile dispute in recent weeks that has seen the release of a number of diss tracks and onstage insults.
“I’m not entertaining no rap/real beef over drake s/o a rapper!” wrote Meek in a post that was quickly deleted by later re-uploaded to Twitter by DJ Akademiks (below). “I don’t feel like I gotta try to prove myself to people and end up in a real situation over this fake rap shit!” he continued. “All this killer shit on social media is like walking ya self into prison, and that ain’t my lifestyle.”
Meek has also removed ‘Wanna Know’, a diss track that samples Drake’s alleged co-writer Quentin Miller, from his Soundcloud page, though that could linked to a dispute with the WWE after the organisation claimed the track infringes on the copyright of wrestler The Undertaker’s entry music.
The beef hasn’t hurt Drake, who is widely considered to have emerged from the battle with Meek as the victor. The Canadian is currently celebrating the news that his ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’ album has become the first record released in 2015 to go platinum in the US.
Celebrating the achievement, Drake posted a picture on Instagram alongside the comment: “Platinum off the tape. Views up next.” Views is a reference to ‘Views From The 6’, the title of his next project, tentatively scheduled for release this year.
