It’s been five months since Remy Ma dropped off her scorching “shETHER” diss record for Nicki Minaj, so it’s been sitting with Remy Mafia and Barbz Army fans for quite a while now.
What didn’t sit well with the Barbz, however, was one of the track’s most severe jabs at Nicki concerning her ex-boyfriend and rap star Meek Mill spilling embarrassing tea on his former femcee flame. The only thing is, according to the Dreamchasers star, that never happened.
Meek popped up at Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning while in town for the promo and kick-off of his Wins and Losses album and pop-up show. While there was a lot to catch up on during the nearly 40-minute conversation, Ebro got straight to the point with Meek and asked him why he didn’t text him about Rem’s “shETHER” diss track, which Ebro also happened to be named in.
“She put me on blast, too,” Meek responded. “By the way, too, I never told that to Remy. And if she ever do an interview, she’ll probably tell you that herself.”
The “that” Meek is referring to can be found early on in “shETHER,” where Remy says she ran into him during NBA’s All-Star Weekend and he revealed something about her rumored body enhancements.
“And I saw Meek at All-Star, he told me you're a** dropped/He couldn’t f**k you for three months because you're a** dropped,” Rem spit. “Now I don’t think y’all understand how bad her a** got/The implants that she had put in her a** popped/ I was like, ‘D**n, 90 days and you couldn’t have box?”
Why Meek didn’t speak up sooner if the bars weren’t true may remain a mystery to some fans. But let him tell it, and it was a little eye-for-an-eye fun after he’s been the butt of the internet’s joke for so long.
“I was just participating in all of the bulls**t because when I’m in bulls**t, everybody participate in it, too,” he said. “And I don’t really give a f**k.”
Even despite the fact that Nicki hadn’t been a part of the internet’s drag session for him during his tiffs with fellow hip-hop rivals like Drake, The Game and 50 Cent, he concluded that it was all just for laughs and giggles. Speaking of Drake, he also mentioned their longstanding beef rooted back to 2015. Though Drizzy declared he’d never return to a friendship with the MMG emcee, Meek’s thoughts on a possible reconciliation are slightly different.
“I was out of control at that point, the way I was coming at everybody,” Meek said of the rivalry. He continued admitting that he was defiant and aimless in his tirades, but in hindsight, he understands the consequences his actions have had now.
“I think I could have approached things better, but it is what it is,” he said. One day, he concluded, a conversation with Drizzy might happen, but he won’t allow it to be forced.
“I got myself into this,” he said. “I like standing up on my feet. I like trials and tribulations — I come from that.”
And as for the alleged multi-man jump on Nicki’s ex-boyfriend Safaree, it’s water under the bridge.
“I’m done,” Meek said. “I’m out of that situation with the girl. What I’mma do? I ain’t got no problem with him. But for everybody else, too, when you get up in that, remember, it’s a certain way. I’m from Philly. We handle things a certain type of way.”
