Drake admits that his nasty feud with Meek Mill was all because of their love for the same woman, Nicki Minaj . In an interview with DJ Semtex on Beats 1’s OVO Sound Radio, Drizzy says, “Meek Mill at the time due to some issue with Nicki whatever, decided to create a narrative that I don’t write my own music because that was what was convenient at the time and he caught wind of it.”
Drizzy could never disrespect Nicki. He shares, “You know what the biggest thing was because I don’t have real hatred for [Meek], the key was like… first of all my biggest focus the entire time was I cannot disrespect Nicki Minaj or use Nicki Minaj in any way other than to lift her up, that’s just not in my character.”
“I didn’t go the route of calling [Meek] a bunch of terrible names, I just used wit, I just used wit and good writing, ironically enough great writing, to just win that situation,” says the “One Dance” singer, referring to his song “Back to Back”, in which he slams Meek.
Drizzy says he’s fine when “people say terrible things about [him],” but Meek “really tried to not only spin the entire narrative of my career, but like end my life and take food from my family and really try and end it all and you didn’t even do it through music, you just talked or tweeted, it was like sickening to me.”
Ultimately, it sounds like the “Hotline Bling” hitmaker is done with the entire feud. “I had to really get revenge on that situation, like I said I respect revenge when its warranted and that was just warranted and it was what it was and it’s not something that I’m proud of because it took just as much of an emotional toll on me, I mean not as much as it did on him, but it took an emotional toll on me, it was just a lot, you always gotta hear about it, even just seeing people get so riled up off negativity,” he explains, “It didn’t feel great, it just was what had to happen at the time.”
While their feud wasn’t that bad, Meek’s “just not somebody [Drizzy] ever really wanna be friends with.” Drizzy says, “I just really don’t have that level of respect for him because of his actions. So I’m not really looking to be friends, or be cordial. It’s something that happened, it is what it is and unfortunately for him it’s part of history, rap history but at the end of the day its really something that’s over and done with and I’m not tryna make any songs or be like boys or any of that s**t.”
“I’m good, I’m great, I’m happy with my friends, I’m happy doing my music over here and it doesn’t need to go anywhere from here, because we look stupid if we keep it going but it’s just like yeah,” he adds, “All blessings to Jay-Z and Nas for coming together after all those years and I can’t predict what’s going to happen in the future, but right now nah I’m good – just be over there, I’ll be over here – that’s it.”
