A$AP Rocky Picks a Winner in the Drake and Meek Mill War of Words
In an interview during Lollapalooza in Chicago over the weekend, the A$AP Mob leader agreed with the majority -- Meek took the L in this latest hip-hop beef. But Rocky believes this won't be a career-ending situation for the Dreams Worth More Than Money creator.
“I think Meek will be fine,” the "L$D" rhymer said. “I think he has a fan base of his own, and I think that at the end of the day, there had to be a loser in the outcome, and it was Meek. So it is what it is.” So there you have you it. A$AP Rocky thinks Drake won this lyrical battle with "Charged Up" and "Back to Back."
Rocky also chimed in on the fact that the public doesn't care if Drake wrote his rhymes or not. At the end of the day, the diss songs both artists released were entertaining. “Watching this was like watching the Super Bowl. I wanna say thank you to Drake and Meek Mill, because that’s good sportsmanship,” he shared. “For real, that s--- was fun. I needed that. To see that, that’s good sportsmanship.”
Whether the ghostwriting allegations are true or not, Rocky is still supporting Drizzy. "Regardless of if Drake write his s--- or not, I’m still a fan. If somebody helped Drake, I dunno, that might be considered cheating, but whoever wrote that -- not saying Drake ain’t write it, I’m quite sure he did -- that s--- was insane. That s--- was incredible, and I wanna thank Drake and Meek Mill for such a good battle.
"I come from an old school aesthetic -- me being 26 -- coming from the point of, when I was coming up, it was all about writing your rhymes, and I’m quite sure for R&B songs, if someone’s giving you [lyrics], that’s nothing. I don’t know. I would have to see. I don’t know what to believe."
For those critics who feel Meek Mill tanked horribly when it came to his diss track "Wanna Know," he's still getting money when it comes to album sales. This week, Dreams Worth More Than Money rose to 299,000 total sales.
