MeekMill broke down his beef with Drake, sliding into Nicki Minaj’s DM’s and his views on rappers using writers in a new interview with Vulture magazine.
It’s been an eventful few years for the Philly-born emcee. Fans have watched Meek go through highs and lows in a short period of time without knowing all the details about certain incidents. For example: Mill’s beef with Drake over his alleged ghostwriters all started with Meek being high. “I was just out of control at that point in my life. Getting high and doing whatever I wanted how I wanted to do it…“I don’t know his writing situation or how he really carried it. I just jumped out of anger and what I thought was the truth at the time.” Mill also mentioned that he and Drake have been in communication prior to him going to prison, and that the two artists will definitely collaborate on new music.
While he says he and Drake will work together again regardless of the rumored writers, he highlighted how his views on ghostwriting have greatly changed amid #CardiB admittedly using co-writers. “That would never hold me back from working with someone. Even Kanye admits to using writers and working with people. And Dr. Dre,” he continues. “It’s just that there are certain titles you can’t claim it … like even Puff Daddy, of course, he had writers. He wouldn’t claim he was a f*cking all-time lyricist.”
As for sliding in Nicki’s DMs: Mill says that’s totally false. Nicki’s verse from her hit song “Barbie Dreams” referenced how Mill allegedly still tries to contact her.” “Meek still be in my DMs, I be having to duck him / ‘I used to pray for times like this’ face ass when I fuck him,” Minaj says on the track. Meek claims he knew nothing about the song. “I ain’t get no heads-up [about the song], but I definitely wasn’t in nobody’s DMs. And definitely wasn’t nobody ducking me, shit. That’s a fact,” Nevertheless, he’s willing to take a joke. “I actually was laughing at it, too. ‘Cause there’s no limits! I felt it and I liked it. That’s a dope rap.”
Mill’s last comments were about his determination to be as influential as his mentor #JayZ. “I feel like I bring a lot of influence to the game, no matter if I’m going through good or bad. Most rap careers [would find it] hard to make it through the things I’ve been through. At the end of the story, whenever that is, if 20 or 30 years from now and there’s a documentary on my life, that’ll be the conversation.”
