Let's not bait Drake, shall we? The dude's too classy to fall for any kind of diss, and this just proves it yet again. On Tuesday night, rapper Meek Mill came out swinging at the 28-year old Toronto rapper on Twitter, with Meek Mill accusing Drake of having someone "ghost write" his raps. Though Drake hasn't responded to Mill's accusations (or anyone else's similar accusations) publicly, there's the possibility that he didn't remain 100 percent quiet — but even in his possible response, he still manages to come off as basically the sweetest guy ever. Basically, long story short, it looks like he MIGHT have made a comment on it — all by sliding into someone's direct messages on Instagram...
(Update: Meek Mill apologized to Nicki Minaj for his Twitter rant during their performance together at a concert on Wednesday night. Mill maintained that he was upset at Drake "as a fan" that Drake, Mill claims, didn't write his own verse on his song on Mill's album, but gave the rapper a shoutout for being "great" in all the "lanes he's great in.")
Hitman Holla may have made himself part of the conversation by direct messaging Drake his words of support, saying that he didn't believe Meek Mill's accusations. The entertainer, who's best known for MTV's Wild N' Out, supposedly got an answer back from Champagne Papi himself — at least, that's according to the Instagram he posted of a screenshot from his direct messages. Drake's alleged response? Three praying hands emojis, and the ever-so-Drake reply: "I signed up for greatness. This comes with it."
I've said it a thousand times, and I'll say it again: Drake continues to out-Drake himself.
Of course, there's no way to verify if the DM screenshot is real, and Drake himself hasn't responded publicly to Meek Mill's tweets on his own Twitter or on his Instagram posts. But, the message that Hitman Holla posted sounds suspiciously Drake-like; I mean, he JUST released a (very strange, very beautiful) video for his song "Energy" which is all about all the haters around him trying to say he doesn't work as hard, or he's not that original.
Maybe he will respond, eventually, perhaps in the way only Drake would — like, with a long delayed line about Meek Mill in one of his tracks on Views From The 6, the same way he went after Tyga in "6 PM In New York" on If You're Reading This, It's Too Late.
And, another reason the message seems like it came from Drake: Who else would respond with such reserve and class?
