In case you’ve been absent on social media during the last week or so, Meek Mill turned to Twitter to have a tantrum on June 21.

Another celeb lashing out over social media: what’s new right?

Everything, really.

After he accused his former collaborator of using a ghostwriter – on a recent collaborative track ‘R.I.C.O.’ (from Meek’s album Dreams Worth More Than Money) – Drake wasn’t having any of it. He blasted out a diss track within days and the flame-war began.

In the time it took Meek to drop one poorly produced and fairly unintelligible rap, Drake had landed not one, but two, deep cuts against Meek. And the internet loved it.

Get a ghostwriter, Meek

Meek eventually aired his response. We are sure Humdrum.TV is not alone in thinking Meek spent most of the week badly Photoshopping Drake’s face instead of coming up with some quality content.

Shoddy production aside, Meek wasn’t exactly creative with his jibes. Drake’s embarrassing love life is easy to make fun of. And Drake knows it.

Perhaps that’s one of the reasons that he bothered to respond to the comparative nonentity that is Meek Mill in the first place. Drake is determined to make an example out of him and to up his cred as a take-no-nonsense songwriter in the process:

“Please, please do not let these niggas near meScreen shot 2015-08-03 at 9.51.21 AM
Please, think before you come for the great one
Please, who’s a real nigga and who ain’t one?”

– ‘Back to Back’

Love him or hate him, Drake’s got one hell of a committed following and going up against that was risky business. Meek Mill must have been deluding himself, right?

It’s all a publicity stunt

Even if he’s being ripped to shreds by Drake and co, more people know who Meek Mill is than ever before.

Even if it’s all a farce, we’re thrilled to see rappers taking it back to basics and beefing it off once more.

In the past week the scene collected three authentic recordings: unadorned, raw and unyielding. It’s like being right in the middle of a back street battle.

If Meek wasn’t in it deep enough with Drake’s fandom, Meek has another sect out for blood, over a copyright infringement nonetheless. It’s so ironic, it hurts.

WWE has alleged that Meek Mill used The Undertaker’s WWE theme song in “Wanna Know”. WWE  issued the following statement to TMZ:

“WWE takes its intellectual property rights very seriously, and we’re looking into the matter.”

Who needed a ghostwriter after all, Meek?
