Meek Mill has been at the center of several hip-hop feuds lately, but one of his ongoing beefs could be coming to an end soon. In a new interview, the Philadelphia rapper opened up about everything from his long-running beef with Drake, his feud with The Game, his drama with Beanie Sigel and his thoughts on Nicki Minaj’s ex Safaree Samuels.
During a podcast interview for Tax Season with television personality Taxstone, Mill started off explaining why it took him so long to respond to Drake’s diss song “Back to Back.” As fans may recall, Drake dropped the track in response to Mill’s claims that Drake used a ghostwriter. After weeks of staying silent, Mill fired back at Drake with “Wanna Know.”
According to Mill, he waited so long to release his own diss song because he was busy. “I was on tour at this time when all that s--- was going on. When I record, I don’t really record like that,” he explained in the interview. “I always move at my time.”
Although Drake and Mill’s beef has been dragging out since the summer of 2015, the “Monster” rapper told Taxstone that he thinks him and Drake could squash things. “We don’t have no real problem. We don’t got no real problems,” he said.
Recently, Minaj’s boyfriend has found himself in a war of words with other hip-hop artists including The Game and former friend Beanie Sigel. When asked about his thoughts on The Game, Mill admitted that he initially didn’t think they had any issues. However, once Mill realized The Game was targeting him it “was an immediate issue.” He said, “You trying to destroy my name. I was in L.A. You could have pulled up and handled it however you wanted … It was premeditated.”
In the lengthy interview, Mill also shared some brief thoughts on his situation with Sigel. The two rappers started beefing after Sigel, initially in Mill’s corner during his drama with The Game, hinted that he wrote Mill’s lyrics for his diss song at The Game.
Mill didn’t have much to say to Taxstone about Sigel, but admitted that he once looked up to the fellow rapper. “I don’t feel nothing,” he said. “I just thought that was — I don’t know what that was.”
In addition to beefing with Drake, Sigel and The Game, Mill has also gone back and forth on social media with Samuels. It appears that the tension between them started when Mill was accused of FaceTiming Minaj and telling her that Samuels was allegedly cheating.
“I don’t f--- with him,” Mill said about the “Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood” cast member, adding that the FaceTime story was a “lie.” He added: “I didn’t f--- with him when that was going on.”
