Drake vs. Meek Mill: What You Need To Know

Daniel's PostOkay, what’s the deal with Meek Mill and Drake?

I’m sure a lot of you have heard about the beef from a distance, heard Drake’s hit diss record or read Meek Mill’s infamous tweets. But let’s get you guys informed about the events of Summer 2k15 so we can all get up to speed with the latest in the hip hop saga.

drake meek1

This July, Drake received criticism from Meek Mill, Rick Ross’ protégé, who claimed Drake was employing a ghostwriter for his most recent hit songs. A ghostwriter is a songwriter who receives under the table compensation for their contributions to a song or album, and employing them is a cardinal sin in hip hop. In reality, Meek was upset that Drake didn’t tweet about Mill’s latest project and claimed that the lack of support was the result of his discovery that the Toronto rapper used a ghostwriter on their joint single, R.I.C.O.

While most claims of inauthenticity in hip hop go unnoticed, Mill actually provided the name of the alleged ghostwriter, Quentin Miller, and his early recordings of popular would-be Drake songs. Unfortunately for Meek, Drake responded to the drama in the most hip hop way he knew how: he dropped two diss records in the same week. The latter of which, “Back to Back”, was a scathing hit that flooded the internet and was even nominated for a Grammy.

Meek’s “Twitter Fingers” continued long before his weak response record dropped the following week, and at this point, most people concluded that Drake had won regardless of the truth behind Meek’s initial claims.

Meek Mill took countless more L’s over the following months as several subliminal disses were fired from Drake and Atlanta rapper, Future, as well as more direct jabs from the ever-feuding 50 Cent. Some believed Mill’s career to be over and mocked his hip hop instincts as most of his responses came from Twitter instead of his music. However, things took an interesting turn this past week.

Last weekend, Drake released a new track, “Summer Sixteen”, officially launching his campaign for his upcoming album Views from the 6. The single appeared to be another diss record aimed at Meek Mill, referencing being in the hotel room above Meek at the Four Seasons the night of Back to Back dropping and his own dance moves from the Hotline Bling music video. Meek Mill responded immediately, posting a new track just 15 minutes later referencing those same two things and claiming Quentin Miller had informed him of what Drake would be talking about in “Summer Sixteen”. In an interesting turn of events, the overwhelming internet response was positive for Meek.

And so now we have to ask, who is really winning this seemingly endless beef? While Drake’s first response record this summer, “Charged Up” was viewed as a weak diss, the commercial success and quotability of “Back to Back” rendered the Toronto rapper victorious. Meek’s overall credibility took a hit through the process, but here we are half a year later wondering how Meek actually managed to respond so quickly to “Summer Sixteen”. Did he really find out from Quentin Miller? Does Drake really write any of his songs?

I guess all we can do is wait and see. Next week on hip hop beefs, Iggy Azalea vs the world. Just kidding.

FevaTV-2Chainz

If you haven’t heard yet, 2 Chainz will be this year’s musical guest for Midnight Madness. And, for those of you who don’t know what Midnight Madness is, get yourselves together. Sports. Basketball. Hoya Saxa.

Anyway, yes, 2 Chainz is coming and we are so excited about it. To get you caught up on all happenings and information, 4E is bringing you the many faces of 2 Chainz:

Friday Fixat10ns: Turnt Up 2k13

[8tracks width=”300″ height=”250″ playops=”” url=”http://8tracks.com/mixes/2372035″]

School’s been in for less than a month but it’s already wearing us down. Although we might not have our summertime energy and the weather’s taken a turn for the worse, the summertime tunes endure. It’s easy to get back into the place where good feelings abound with the right music. Hoyas, it’s time to get turnt up:

New Slaves (DJ Snake Remix) – Kanye West “Yeezus” is considered by many as the best album of the summer, and “New Slaves” is one of the best tracks on it. This remix encourages more turnt up-ness than even the original.

Tom Ford – Jay Z If you haven’t heard yet, Mr. Carter has dropped the hyphen from his stage name. Don’t worry though – he still has the ability to come out with some of the catchiest beats out there. If you’re in search of a pump up song, this song or one of its many trap remixes will do nicely.

Versace – Migos ft. Drake Hip hop heads who follow the so-called “power rankings” of rappers will know that this summer was a dramatic one for the rap game. While Kendrick may claim the number one spot with his verse on Big Sean’s “Control”, Drake still makes a case for himself with this verse.

We Can’t Stop – Miley Cyrus Real talk: this song is catchy and was one of the most popular tracks this summer. Say what you want about Miley and her controversial VMA performance; this girl made an alright song. Hey, at least I didn’t put Robin Thicke in here, right?

Blood on the Leaves – Kanye West I try not to repeat artists but if the theme is “turnt up”, I can’t deny this song. The drop in this song will be remembered for years to come.

The Way – Ariana Grande ft. Mac Miller I promise I put this song on here for its musical merits and not because Ariana Grande is a goddess among mortals. But apparently she’s dating Mac Miller… so I guess it’s time to announce my debut in the rap game. (Call me Leezy?)

Power Trip – J.Cole ft. Miguel “Born Sinner” challenges “Yeezus” for the title of album of the summer. This song is a perfect combination of the lyricism that we have come to expect from J. Cole and the smooth voice of Miguel. The only thing that isn’t smooth about Miguel is this little stunt that was recorded in a live performance. (Scratch that. Did you see how he handled it? Still smooth.)

Numbers on the Boards – Pusha T This song is neither a summertime hit nor a typical pump up song. But if you know Pusha T, you know that he doesn’t need a conventional pump up beat to drop a great track.

Come As You Are – Nirvana An old school perspective on “turnt up”. Flashback Friday, anyone?

A1 Everything – Meek Mill ft. Kendrick Lamar And now a new school approach to “turnt up”. Meek Mill and Kendrick spit absolute fire in this song. So Hoyas, its the weekend; y’know what time it is…

Seven Questions With Tate Tucker

seven questions with tate tucker

Georgetown University is full of future CEOs, diplomats, senators and … famous rappers?

You may have seen Tate Tucker (COL ’14) perform at a Georgetown event, on YouTube or maybe just in the cubicle next to yours doing his homework.
