After a five-month ceasefire in the Drake vs. Meek Mill beef, the latter rekindled his feud with Drake Saturday with the arrival of Mill’s surprise new EP 4/4, featuring a cut aimed directly at the Toronto rapper. The two previously traded diss tracks, onstage barbs and backhanded tweets in the summer of 2015, with Mill firing “Wanna Know” and Drake unleashing “Charged Up” and “Back to Back.”
Mill reignites the feud on the 4/4 track “I’m Da Plug Freestyle,” first by stepping on Drake and Future’s own What a Time to Be Alive cut “Jumpman,” which also served as the basis for Kanye West’s Nike-blasting track “Facts.” “Jumpman, Jumpman, Jumpman / Ain’t nobody tell ’em this ain’t what they want, man / You ain’t really write it, I’m like ‘who’s your stuntman?,'” Mill raps, once again calling into the question whether Drake uses a ghostwriter, which sparked the beef in the first place.
Later on the freestyle, Mill references Drake’s “Started From the Bottom” and also circles back at one of the more biting lines from Drake’s “Back to Back,” “Is that your world tour, or your girl’s tour?,” a knock that the Philadelphia rapper was the opening act for his girlfriend, Nicki Minaj. “Was that my girl’s tour or the world tour? / I do not know what you pussy niggas goin’ for / This that hundred-K a night when you perform tour / Swimmin’ in that good pussy while you’re on tour,” Mill fired back.
However, “I’m Da Plug Freestyle” might be too little, too late in Mill’s beef with Drake as “Back to Back” was already nominated for a Best Rap Performance Grammy, a rarity for a non-album diss track.
