Traditional ‘rap beef’ etiquette calls for one artist to wait for the other to respond to their diss track before following it up, but it seems Drake is breaking the rules and hitting Meek Mill again only several days after his initial assault of the Philadelphia rapper – hence the new track’s title: “Back to Back”.
The Canadian rapper was accused of not writing his own lyrics by Meek Mill last week via twitter. Drake promptly released a quick response in the form of a track called “Charged Up” where he put down Mill for his allegations and made some general statements about his current position in the rap industry. Aside from a small tweet calling the track “baby lotion soft”, Meek Mill has been quiet on the music front in terms of countering Drake’s put-downs. “Back to Back” further insults Mill and addresses his lack of response, this time with some even colder rhymes, and the internet is having a complete field-day with the insults, creating a steady stream of photoshopped images and memes under the hashtag #BackToBack that don’t seem to be slowing down.
Some notable Quotes:
- “Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour?” – referring to the rapper’s appearances on girlfriend Nicki Minaj’s Pinkprint tour.
- “Can’t fool the city man, they known what’s up”, referencing when Meek Mill was booed offstage with his appearence in Toronto during the same tour
- “When I look back I might be mad that I gave this attention”
