Meek Mill caused quite the stir on Twitter by claiming Drake doesn’t write his own lyrics, but it looks like he had a change of heart just hours later. During his performance in Virginia on July 22, the rapper issued an apology to Drake, along with fiancé Nicki Minaj, for going off on social media.
Back track alert! Meek Mill, 28, went off on Drake, 28, for allegedly using a ghostwriter, but his argument likely caused more controversy than intended, and during a concert on July 22, Meek apologized to his colleague in front of an audience of thousands.
Taking a break between songs, the rapper told the crowd that he was “upset as a fan” because Drake sang a verse on his album that he didn’t write. “Shoutout to Drake,” he added, though. “Let him be great in all the motherf—ing lanes he is great in.”
But, more importantly, it seemed that Meek really wanted to say sorry to his fiancé, Nicki Minaj, 32, who must not have been too happy about his Twitter rant. “I wanted to give a special apology shoutout to Nicki Minaj for my crazy ass going crazy on Twitter,” he said, when the “Anaconda” singer joined him onstage. “We can’t be messing with some hood s—.” (WATCH THE APOLOGY VIDEOS BELOW).
The drama began late at night on July 21, when Meek tweeted, “Stop comparing drake to me too…. He don’t write his own raps! That’s why he ain’t tweet my album because we found out!” Drake obviously caught wind of what was said, but according to his response, he wasn’t taking anything Meek said too seriously.
Rapper Hitman Holla took to Instagram to share a photo of a screenshot of his direct messages with Drizzy, in which the “Take Care” singer wrote, “I signed up for greatness. This comes with it.” Clearly, Drake is used to criticism, and knows Meek’s allegations won’t affect his career tremendously!
Interestingly, Nicki found herself in the middle of a Twitter feud at the same time, battling it out with Taylor Swift, 25, over VMA nominations. It was definitely a fighting day for this couple — luckily, they found targets other than each other!
