Meek Mill and Drake are both receiving some friendly advice to end their feud that has been ongoing for months. In a recent interview with “The Breakfast Club” to promote his upcoming film “Ride Along 2,” Kevin Hart spoke out about the rappers’ beef.
The actor-comedian, who claims to be good friends with both Mill and Drake, said Thursday that he spoke to Nicki Minaj’s boyfriend to stop targeting the Canadian rapper before it jeopardizes his own career.
“That was my thing with Meek," Hart said. "Look, at the end of the day, you're Meek Mill now."
"You may not understand what that means, but other people do. That name holds a certain level of respect. People support what you've built. People buy your albums. Get back to getting in the studio and let [the beef] go," he advised.
Hart reportedly reminded Mill that he should not be getting involved in such a meaningless back-and-forth and should focus on his music.
"Dude, you're close to reaching your music goals," Hart told Mill, according to XXL magazine. "Right now, this is an industry that doesn't sell units. Musicians don't sell units right now, so the fact that you are one of eight artists that can sell units, you don't want to jeopardize that."
Hart said in the interview that he also spoke to Drake reminding him that he is too big a star get involved in the beef.
"Drake is Drake," Hart reportedly said. "He's our generation's rap superstar.
"[I told him to] get back to being Drake the superstar. This can't last that long and go back and forth. That's where I come in as a friend ... If you're a real friend that's what you do. You don't support the negative banter between the two for too long," he added.
Mill and Drake’s public spat began in July after the "All Eyes on You" rapper took to Twitter and told people not to compare him with Drake because he doesn't write his own rap songs. Drake responded with two diss songs, “Charged Up” and “Back to Back.” Mill later fired back at Drake with "Wanna Know."
Their feud intensified after some songs in Drake’s mixtape with Future, titled “What a Time to Be Alive,” took aim at the “House Party” rapper and his girlfriend Minaj. Drake had previously confessed his love for Mill’s girlfriend.
Drake’s fans believe that the rapper won the feud against Mill as the former’s diss track “Back to Back” has been nominated for the Grammy Awards.
According to reports, Mill and Drake’s fight may soon heat up as rumors surface that the two are planning to diss each other in their respective new albums — “Dreamchasers 4” and “Views From the 6.”
