The Drake & Meek Mill Feud Has Taken A Dark Turn

Celebrity feuds tend to last a few days — maybe a week or two at most. The grudge may last longer than the headlines, but usually the public stops paying attention, or caring, for that matter and things fizzle out. However, that's not the case for Drake and Meek Mill. Their spat has been going strong, both between them and in the public eye, since July 21 when Meek Mill posted the Tweet Heard 'Round the World accusing Drake of using a ghostwriter. And they're not showing any signs of slowing down anytime soon. Drake performed at the OVO Festival in Toronto on Monday night and dissed Mill while on stage, and the Philly rapper retorted on Tuesday night while making an appearance on Nicki Minaj's Pinkprint tour. Mill did a freestyle about Drake's history of feuds with Lil Wayne, Stunna, and Tyga and included the line, “Everybody catching bullet holes, including Drake and the whole OVO.”

Meek Mill seemingly was referring to the tragic shooting that occurred at an OVO after party. Two people were killed and three were critically injured when gunfire erupted at a nightclub event being hosted by Drake. Mill's violent language has changed this from a celebrity feud about rappers' writing abilities to something quite dark. Whether or not Mill was referring to metaphorical "bullet holes" towards Drake or actual ones, his words shouldn't be taken lightly.

By the time Meek Mill released his diss track "Wanna Know," most hip hop fans had already named Drake the victor in the battle after having already released two tracks in response to Meek Mill's ghostwriter accusations. Drake, who slammed Meek Mill, didn't actually make any direct violent threats towards Meek in his tracks. However, Meek retorted with some very aggressive and vulgar lyrics in "Wanna Know." It started to look like Meek Mill was getting a good sense of humor about the whole thing when he threatened to give Drake a wedgie during the same Pinkprint tour performance, but his words about "bullet holes" show this beef is far from over.

Nicki Minaj, who has been dating Meek Mill and is a longtime friend and collaborator of Drake has yet to formally address the issue. Someone has to put a stop to it and maybe Minaj, who has been included in the diss tracks as ammo, might be the only one who can do it.
