Many thought Meek Mill surrendered to Drake in their ongoing beef after he went silent on Twitter. It turns out his team was behind the silence, not the 28-year-old rapper himself.
Meek Mill was shut off of Twitter for two weeks by his team, who supposedly changed his password on him. The Philadelphia rapper tweeted on Saturday for the first time since July 29 to let the Twitter world know he was back. See Meek Mill's tweet below:
My team stole my password from me! I'm just getting it back! Lol

NME reported Monday that Meek Mill tried to stop the beef with Drake. In a post that has since been deleted, Meek Mill said, “I don't feel like I gotta try to prove myself to people and end up in a real situation over this fake rap s---! All this killer s--- on social media is like walking ya self into prison, and that ain't my lifestyle.”
Drake hasn’t really stirred the pot lately, as he’s been dealing with the aftermath of a fatal shooting that occurred at an OVO Fest afterparty in Toronto Aug. 4. Two people were killed and three were injured at the public party hosted by Drake, according to Rolling Stone.
The feud between Drake and Meek Mill started when the "All Eyes on You" rapper took to Twitter on July 21 and told people not to compare him to Drake because Drake doesn't write his own raps. Drake was recently featured on Meek Mill's song “R.I.C.O.” off his new album, “Dreams Worth More Than Money.”
Drake responded by releasing two diss songs, “Charged Up” and “Back to Back,” while Meek Mill fired back with “Wanna Know.”
The beef has been working out for both rappers financially, as Drake’s surprise February release, “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late,” became the first album released in 2015 to sell 1 million copies. Meek Mill’s "Dreams Worth More Than Money" has sold 313,000 copies in the U.S.
