(AllHipHop News) It seemed the only Hip Hop story that mattered last week was the ongoing saga between Meek Mill and Drake. After Twitter rants, diss records, and reference tracks being leaked, fans have taken sides on who came out the winner with most of the public going with Drizzy. A$AP Rocky agrees.
The Harlem native spoke to MTV about the war of words between the “R.I.C.O.” collaborators. Rocky compared the back-and-forth to watching the Super Bowl and thanked both artists for providing good entertainment. But he also made it clear he feels Drake came out the victor.
“I think Meek will be fine,” said Rocky. “I think he has a fanbase 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.”
The Meek/Drake drama began after the Dream Chasers head accused the OVO leader of having someone else pen his rhymes. Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex then released four different alleged reference tracks of Atlanta’s Quentin Miller performing Drake verses. Rocky was also asked for his opinion on ghostwriting in Hip Hop.
“If you ask me if that matters, or if the public cares, that’s two different questions. I think that it doesn’t matter at this point for the public — they seem like they don’t care. I don’t know. To me it matters,” stated Rocky.
