Drake Says Meek Mill Is Not Someone He Ever Wants to Be Friends With
Drake opened up for DJ Semtex like he was Barbara Walters last night (Feb. 18), giving quite possibly the best interview of his career, as he shed light on the Quentin Miller controversy, Kanye West issues and more. But it was his brutal honesty about his beef with Meek Mill that caught many listeners.
"That whole situation, it was what it was," said Drizzy about his issues with the Dreamchasers MC, about 34 minutes into the chat. "You can interview Meek and you can ask him if he thinks it was worth it. I bet he'll tell you no."
Drizzy went on to delve into the origins of his two Meek disses "Charged Up" and "Back to Back." "I didn’t know who was going to be on [Meek's] diss track or what he had ready," he told Semtex. "I thought this was three months in the making. When I dropped ‘Charged Up,’ just to kinda see what the preparation level was, I realized—oh wow you’re not ready. This is really just your emotions about something.”
Aubrey noted he never intended to diss Nicki Minaj and said he has no true hatred for Meek. But he had to take a stance. "You know how good I am at writing music. But you really tried to spin the entire narrative of my career and end my life," Drake said of Meek's ghostwriting accusations. "And take food from my family and really try to like end it all. You didn't even do it through music. You just talked or tweeted. That was like sickening to me. I had to really get revenge."
According to Drake, even though the issues seem to be dead, he has no desire to befriend the Philly MC. "That's just not somebody who I ever want to be friends with," he added. "I don't have that level of respect for him because of his actions. I'm not looking to be friends or cordial."
