Exciting day for those of us who have been feeling withdrawals from Drake vs. Meek Mill. Both rappers dropped new music on Saturday, leaving fans checking lyrics for disses aimed specifically at each other.
Drake released "Summer Sixteen," the first single from his upcoming album Views From the 6, during his OVO Radio show on Apple’s Beats 1 after he teased it on Twitter this morning:
Fans immediately went crazy at the prospect of new Drake music, blowing up social media with memes and excited tweets. As far as the disses go, "Summer Sixteen" was packed with them. Drizzy took aim at everyone from Jay Z and Kanye West to President Obama on the track. Of course, he saved this special line (and a few more) for Meek: "I let the diss record drop/ you was right below me n***a..."
We'll finally get access to the full album Views From the 6 this April, according to the Toronto MC.
Not to be outdone, Meek Mill dropped not one, but four new tracks on Saturday, comprising the second part of his 4/4 mixtape. The set includes the following new tracks: "Fa Sho” (ft. TDot), "Ricky," "Slippin" (ft. Future and Dave East) and "War Pain” (ft. Omelly). On "War Pain," Meek calls out Drake, OVO and "Hotline Bling." The first part of the EP, which arrived on January 16, also features several shots at Drake.
With more tracks set to drop — and new albums to promote — we wouldn't be surprised to see Drake vs. Meek: The Rematch very soon.
