(AllHipHop News) There are always going to be times when people that work closely together have disagreements. The question is: how do you handle those moments when they happen?
Many observers did not approve of Meek Mill’s approach of airing out his differences with fellow Maybach Music Group artist Wale on Twitter. It was seen as a private matter that should not have become public.

Vibe asked veteran emcee Jadakiss about the Meek Mill/Wale rift, and The Lox member agreed that some things should be kept in-house.
“Who am I to say if it was right or wrong,” said Jadakiss. “I just know I wouldn’t have handled it like that with my brothers. If we have any discrepancies, we settle them among each other. I would never call out Styles or Sheek on Twitter or Instagram or no social media site before I call them up or meet them at the studio or their house.”
DJ Drama is an A&R executive at Atlantic Records (label home of Meek and Wale). He also agreed the problems between the two rappers did not need to take place in front of the entire world.
“I would suggest more than anything, we just keep family business within the family,” said Drama. “If I could suggest anything to those guys, I don’t feel like Twitter is the place for that.”
While the social media battle between Meek Mill and Wale could been seen as an embarrassing moment for them and MMG, the confrontation did help bring awareness to Wale’s latest single “The Followers.” The song shot up to number one on the Trending Chart when it was released.
