(AllHipHop News) How did attending a charity event turn into a social media comedic feud? That is what happened last night between Maybach Music Group rapper Meek Mill and comedian Michael Blackson. The two entertainers – along with Empire‘s Bryshere “Yazz” Gray – visited with local Philadelphia residents, but the experience ended up including some back-and-forth disses on Instagram.

Blackson started the roasting session by referencing Drake’s “Back To Back” diss track against Meek in the caption of one of his IG pics. He wrote, “Home. In Philly giving back to the elderly with Cookie’s son and Twitter fingers.”
Meek fired back on his page by clowning Blackson’s shoes and suggesting he was a C-list celebrity. His photo included the words, “We doing charity but we need to help him get some real Gucci sneaks! None of the kids knew who he wasssss! Lol what are thooooosssseeeee!”
Blackson returned to Instagram to provide proof his footwear was not fake. He also took another shot at Meek by posting a tweet that read, “He roasted me immediately, but took days to reply to that light skin n*gga [Drake].”
The Ghanaian born stand up comic ended his messages to Meek by adding another tweet that claimed he has canceled all of his shows in Philly and hired 78 additional bodyguards. They both eventually dropped the tongue-in-cheek rivalry and began to highlight their respective charity work.
