Drake and Meek Mill's feud, which began in July 2015, has been highlighted once again as DJ Drama on Tuesday opened up about his involvement in the beef. Drake and Nicki Minaj's boyfriend started their war after the latter accused the Canadian rapper of using ghostwriters for his song.
DJ Drama, whose name had cropped up many times during the two rappers' feud, denied leaking Drake's reference track for "If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late" to Mill, or Funkmaster Flex.
"Ask Flex where he got the records from, he didn't get them from me. Go ask Meek where he got the records from, he didn't get them from me," the 38-year-old said.
During an interview with Hot 97's "Ebro in the Morning," DJ Drama admitted that he got involved in the feud because of the Philadelphia rapper.
"I'm gonna say this and then we're gonna put it to rest," DJ Drama said while explaining his role in the Drake-Meek Mill feud. "My involvement in the situation was that my man (Mill) thought he was getting dissed," the American disc jockey said, referencing the line on "R.I.C.O." where Drake says "the girl of your dreams to me is probably not a challenge."
According to DJ Drama, Mill thought that the line was to take shots at his relationship with Minaj.
DJ Drama said that he told Mill that Drake's "not dissing you... those weren't technically his bars," trying to explain that Drake didn't write the line. But, Mill misunderstood the explanation and thought that Drake used ghostwriters to write the lines, leading to much-talked about feud.
"I had a conversation with my man about something and from there it just blew out of proportion," DJ Drama said. "I said, 'Bro, he’s not dissing you. He’s not dissing you. He’s not dissing you.'"
Since Drake and Mill began their public spat, the two rappers have released several diss tracks targeting each other. While slamming Mill, Drake has also slammed Minaj, despite his liking towards the "Anaconda" singer.
