When it comes to artists, Drake is known as the more sensitive type. He essentially wears his heart on his sleeve. Just look at how he's always gushing over his crush on Rihanna. I'm all for the guy being in touch with his feelings, which is exactly why I can't help but be disappointed in his latest move. While performing in Washington D.C. over the weekend, Drake reignited his feud with Meek Mill onstage, according to E! News. How exactly? He seemingly called Meek Mill a "p*ssy" during a song. That's definitely not the Drake fans (like myself) have come to know and love.
Here's what exactly went down: While rapping his 2015 track "Back to Back," which is known to be a diss to Mill, Drake decided to switch up the lyrics. Where he usually says, "I did another one, I did another one / You still ain't did sh*t about the other on," he said "that p*ssy ain't did sh*t" instead. That impromptu lyric change was his way of saying that Meek Mill hadn't responded to his two diss tracks. (Although actually, for the record, he has.)
Before you try to declare Drake's innocence, E! and TMZ both posted a video from the D.C. performance, which shows he definitely did dub in that word. So now, I'm over here wondering, WHY DRAKE, WHY? I wish he would just let the beef go — it's been more than a year already. There's really no need for all this drama.
While I know "Back to Back" is a popular song and he would've probably performed it regardless, there was no need to switch things up and make the diss more harsh. He should've been the bigger person. And by the way, calling someone a "p*ssy" just isn't cool, since it takes part of the female anatomy and equates it with weakness. That may sound like I'm making a big deal about a word that's tossed around all the time, but I expected more from Drake. What about his good, old days as Jimmy Brooks on Degrassi? He was so wholesome back then.
Hopefully this is just a minor blip in Drake's otherwise positive reputation. It would be great if these two could just bury the hatchet and move on.
