Meek Mill has received rapper Rick Ross’ support in his ongoing feud with Drake. In an interview Tuesday, the 39-year-old spoke out on Mill and Drake’s beef, comparing it to a high school fight.
“For me, my position, I think this is what’s good for the culture,” Ross reportedly said on Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club.” The founder of record label Maybach Music Group slammed Drake despite sharing a working relationship with the Canadian rapper.
“Coming up in this game, I’ve seen it, we’ve all seen it: You will have skirmishes, you will have scrimmages, going for that number one spot,” Ross said. “I feel like, Meek Mill being my little brother, and Drake being my little homie, I really feel like they was two little homies that was in high school, on the way from school, fought over a pair of Js. And when the new Js come out, they back cool.”
Ross also reportedly stated that Nicki Minaj’s boyfriend did not get bodied regarding Drake’s famous line “getting bodied by a singing ni----.”
“Ain’t nobody get bodied,” Ross reportedly said, about Drake’s lines in his diss track “Back To Back.” “If you think that was bodied, you buggin’. If you think Meek Mill through, you trippin’.”
Ross also reportedly said that Mill is too busy with his career. “This is what you gotta realize: This is a career,” Ross said, according to MTV News. “I just got off the phone with [Meek]. Right now he making some of the most powerful music he ever made. That’s what this does. That’s what I’m excited for. The next level. What’s next? The small talk over with. What’s next?”
Mill and Drake’s battle erupted July 21 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 by releasing two diss songs, “Charged Up” and “Back to Back,” while Mill fired back with "Wanna Know."
The feud between the two intensified after some songs in Drake’s mixtape with Future, titled “What a Time to Be Alive,” allegedly took aim at the “House Party” rapper and Minaj.
Walka gave rise to speculation of collaboration with Mill after he posted an artwork on his Instagram account late Sunday.
Meanwhile, Mill recently took to Instagram to preview a few tracks from his upcoming mixtape, one of which allegedly alludes to his clash with Drake.
