(AllHipHop News) Philadelphia’s Neef Buck can offer an interesting perspective to the much talked about Meek Mill versus Drake battle. The former Roc-A-Fella Records emcee is from Meek’s hometown, and he witnessed the epic Jay Z versus Nas conflict firsthand.
Mikey T The Movie Star caught up with Neef to get his thoughts on Meek/Drake. The Young Gunz member compared Meek’s social media rant that started this summer’s hottest rivalry to Hov’s feud with Esco.
“I watched the best to ever do it. I watched Jay. I watched Irv Gotti damn near engineer ‘Super Ugly’ that was about Nas. [He] picked the beats out, hyping Jay to do whatever he was doing,” said Neef. “A couple of weeks later [Gotti] tried to sign Nas. But Jay ain’t gonna tweet it out or put it out publicly ‘I don’t mess with Irv Gotti.'”
Neef mentioned the classic early 2000’s beef as an example of how individuals in Hip Hop are not always the most loyal to their collaborators. In Neef’s opinion, modern rap artists tend to confuse industry associates with true friends.
“That’s where I think these new rappers go wrong at. Just holding motherf*ckers up to higher standards than they really are,” Neef added. “At the end of the day, just because you’re a good rapper or make good music and you’re popping right now doesn’t mean you’re a solid nigga.”
