Meek Mill and Drake's ongoing feud heated up after the Canadian rapper slammed his rival in a song from his new album, "Views From The 6." Nicki Minaj's boyfriend is now preparing to respond to Drake's diss with a mixtape, Hollywood Life reported.
“Drake may think he’s sitting pretty and on top of the game with Views but Meek’s preparing to knock him down real fast. He’s heard the album and it’s not on fire that way Drake thinks it is,” a source told Hollywood Life. “Meek’s been at the crib, writing a series of new songs for a mixtape he’s planning on dropping once he’s off house arrest and it’s going to murder Drake’s album.”
Drake released his fourth album "Views From The 6" Friday, with one of its tracks "Hype" taking shots at the Philadelphia rapper.
"I don’t run out of material/You shouldn’t speak on me period/You try to give your side of the story/They heard it/But they weren’t hearing it," Drake said in the song.
Mill and Drake have been feuding with each other since July last year. The fight began with Mill slamming Drake for using ghostwriters for his songs. As the feud heated up, the two rappers released songs dissing each other. Drake also pulled Mill's girlfriend into their feud on several occasions.
Their ongoing battle reignited in January after they released new tracks taking potshots at one another. Drake released his latest single, “Summer Sixteen,” following which Mill dropped the second installment of his “4/4” mixtape during the live stream of "OVO Sound Radio."
Amid Drake's rivalry with Mill, the 29-year-old rapper recently spoke out about Minaj in an interview, saying that he has not spoken to the "Anaconda" singer since his feud with Mill began.
"I don’t really talk to Nicki. [She’s a] person I have a lot of love for. A lot of love and a lot of respect. Not only for our past, and how much work and time we put in, but even just the way she dealt with the situation," Drake said, according to TMZ. "I understand what love is, and I understand a personal situation. She dealt with me how I would expect her to — which was with class. I could only ever do the same."
