Meek Mill Delivers Brutal Shots at Drake on ‘War Pain’ from ‘4/4′ Part Two
Just minutes after Drake unveiled his his song “Summer Sixteen” on OVO Radio, Meek Mill fired back with his second installment of his 4/4 EP on Saturday (Jan. 30). And yes, there is a diss track aimed at the Toronto rapper. On “War Pain,” the Philly spitfire ethers Drizzy’s street credibility.
Over a thunderous beat, a downing piano groove and a soulful vocal sample, Meek delivers brutal lyrical shots about Drake being a fraud who uses a ghostwriter to pen his rhymes.
“See an OVO chain, probably take that s— / Said dreamin’ wasn’t enough, we had to chase that s— / You ain’t write it n—-, we caught ya, can’t erase that s— / And you claimin’ you HOV now? Why you state that s—? / Man I hate that s—, n—-s be talkin’ out they face / But soon as you body somethin’ they be singin’ like they Drake,” he raps.
Later, Meek spits, “Wait, n—-s dancin’ like they fruitcakes / Hotline Bling, don’t get no bang up in this new Wraith. Then he drops the final blow, rapping, “DC4 on the way, that’s n—-‘s due date / Robbed you in your city and you told / Tory from the 6, you hatin’ on him, Lord knows / Culture vulture, now it’s time to pay the tolls.”
Interestingly, Meek went on his Instagram page to post a photo of Drake holding up a Dream Chasers chain, which matched his verse: “When I met you, you was on my d— / Asked me to hold the DC chain now you on some s—.”
However, the talk on social media was Meek being able to address several of Drake’s lines from “Summer Sixteen” directly, including that night in Toronto at that five-star hotel. Coincidence? We think not.
According to Meek Mill, Drake’s ghostwriter, allegedly Quentin Miller, told him the lyrics.
Fans’ reaction to Meek’s diss song have been mixed. One person tweeted, “Meek Mill war pain is cool I just wish he would stop talking money in a diss record to drake,” while another commented, “War Pain” is a banger.”
We have to say, that Meek threw some real lyrical daggers at Drake this time around. But the questions remains: does anybody care that a ghostwriter allegedly is penning Drake rhymes?
