There might be a reason why Meek Mill decided to drop his four new tracks, including the Drake diss record "War Pain" on the same day as Drake's "Summer Sixteen." Looks like the Philly MC is trying to prove his previous claim that Drizzy uses a ghostwriter named Quentin Miller.
It all started Saturday when Drake dropped his new single “Summer Sixteen” on OVO Sound Radio. About an hour later, Meek dropped a set of four songs from 4/4 Pt. 2 including the diss track we’ve been waiting for, “War Pain.”
In “War Pain,” Meek references claim after claim that Drake made in his “Summer Sixteen,” to the point where it seems as though Meek had the lyrics before Drake even released the new song. In Drake’s song he raps about wanting to be “on Rocafella but I turned into Jay.”
In Meek’s song, which came out just an hour later, he specifically mentions the comparison: “You ain’t write it n****, we caught ya, can’t erase that shit. And you claimin’ you HOV now? Why you state that s***?” Drake also references the success of his summer hit “Hotline Bling,” in his new single. Meek Mill responds to that in “War Pain,” as well. “Wait, n*****s dancin’ like they fruitcakes. Hotline Bling, don’t get no bing up in this new Wraith.”
So, how did Meek know so much about Drake's lyrics? Either he writes and records faster than anyone in history, or someone slid him Drake's lyrics beforehand. Meek claims the latter:
The question still remains: does anybody care?
Meek got pretty well smoked the last time he came for Drake, so hopefully he knows he's playing with fire this time. On the other hand, both these dudes have albums to promote and they're savvy enough to know that nothing keeps people talking like beef.
