Taking to Twitter today (November 30), the rapper said that the line is anything but a criticism.
“The line clearly meant don’t pit me against my brothers no matter what our differences are (red hat) now go pick up Meek album,” he wrote, adding, “Drake and Meek on there together.”

The track, ‘What’s Free’ features on Mill’s new album ‘Championships’.
In the song Jay-Z raps: “No red hat, don’t Michael and Prince me and Ye / They separate you when you got Michael and Prince’s DNA / I ain’t one of these house ni**as you bought”.
Elsewhere, he apparently criticises Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian by comparing her to his own, Beyonce. “My house like a resort, my house bigger than yours / My spo—c’mon, man—my route better of course.“
The track’s title appears to reference Notorious BIG’s ‘What’s Beef’, and also features Rick Ross.
West caused huge outrage with his vocal support for President Donald Trump, and met with the US leader in a heavily criticised move.
Meek Mill has said that he tried to talk West out of the visit, and revealed that he had turned down the invite himself.
“It was a mockery, really,” he said of West. “I don’t think he addressed anything that had to do with what was tough on justice reform. He wasn’t prepared for it, and he shouldn’t have done it.”
