Meek Mill: 'Shout Out to Drake, Let Him Be Great'

Well, that's the end of their feud.

Published July 23, 2015

Meek Mill is coming full circle after taking shots at Drake’s credibility for not writing his own rhymes. Kind of. Really, he’s done the unthinkable by complementing and dissing him at the same time!

During the Virginia stop on Nicki Minaj’s The Pinkprint Tour with DeJ Loaf, Tinashe and Rae Sremmurd, the MMG rapper had to say a few more words involving Drizzy. “Don’t get it twisted. I was just upset as a fan that a n***a gave me a verse he didn’t write. Shout out to Drake, let him be great in all the motherf**kin’ lanes he great in, but I’ma still be the realest n***a in this b***h!”


Mill calling out Drake and his alleged songwriter Quentin Miller has sparked an ongoing discussion about ghostwriting in hip hop. It’s been a mixed bag of reactions of whether it is acceptable or not to have a team in your corner to craft songs. Noah “40” Shebib, his longstanding producer, defended Drake in a lengthy series of tweets. “No one is as talented as drake. It's not worth my time. I need someone who understands song writing on a higher level...,” he wrote.

Drake responded to Mill’s initial claims in a direct message to one of his followers named HitmanHolla. In a screenshot, he replied to his friend’s words by saying, “I signed up for greatness.
