Drake begins his newly released banger ‘Summer Sixteen’ quite aggressively speaking his mind on very controversial topics in the seemingly one-sided beef between himself and Meek Mill.
Drake states that he and Meek were staying in the same hotel (Four Seasons) when he dropped his second consecutive diss track, “Back to Back,” at the end of July.
Here’s exactly what Drake said;
“I’m just a sicko a real sicko when you get to know me, n*gga / I let the diss record drop you were standing right below me, nigga / We must have played it a hundred times, you was going to bed.”
According to HotNewHipHop, the story is actually that Drake heard of Meek and Nicki being booked in at the Four Seasons when Nicki’s “Pinkprint” tour came through Toronto. Drake and his crew then reportedly booked a room right above that of Meek and Nicki.
Reports are that, the OVO team proceeded to play “Back to Back” at a volume that would, no doubt, disturb the couple attempting to sleep on the floor below.
Incase you think Drake is lying, just listen to Meek, whose new EP, 4/4 Part 2, dropped during tonight’s OVO Sound episode, soon after the premiere of “Summer Sixteen.”
Dre1 states, the final track on the 4-track release is a Drake diss titled “War Pain,” and he seems to directly reference certain lines on “Summer Sixteen,” such as when Drake compares himself to Jay Z and when he (likely) takes subtle shots at Tory Lanez, whom Meek defends on his new diss track.
What really puts the icing on the cake was on a trackon 4/4 entitled, “War Pain” begins with Meek addressing the Four Seasons situation:
“Location, Toronto, status — five star hotel, Four Seasons. Them chumps right upstairs, they know not to come up here playin’ no real niggas. Mu, I’m still up countin’ five hundred thousand cash. Nicki in the bedroom sleep, life is good,” says Meek before he starts rapping.
Perhaps that was a miserable evening for Meek, but regardless of whose story rings more truth, the most interesting aspect of tonight’s diss exchange is how both tracks make mention of the same incident.
And when one considers how Meek seems to take into account other aspects of “Summer Sixteen” on “War Pain,” it seems likely that Meek recorded — at least parts of — the track right after hearing Drake’s latest single.
Or is it more likely that Meek somehow knew about “Summer Sixteen” before the track’s release? Was he tipped off about the record? Did Quentin slip him the lyrics?
Stay tuned with us for this and many more controversies that are imminent.
