(AllHipHop News) Recently, while discussing the upcoming film, Straight Outta Compton, legendary MC, Ice Cube, spoke exclusively with AllHipHop regarding the lingering beef between Meek Mill and Drake. The iconic wordsmith, who in the past navigated epic misunderstandings with both his former group, N.W.A. and Common warns the contemporary rappers that, “Beefs in public are dangerous.”
The platinum-penned MC then gives insight into his former beef with Common and explained, “Back in the day, me and Common’s beef was also a misunderstanding. It went a little out of hand. I’m glad that Minister Farrakhan stepped in and helped us straighten that out. Beefs in public are dangerous.” Adding to his sentiment he soon included, “If someone stepped in and hurt Drake now everybody’s gonna be looking at Meek Mill. If somebody stepped in and hurt Meek Mill everybody’s gonna be looking at Drake.”
Wisdom wrapped his words, and then Ice Cube shared, “So, whenever you beef in public you give real enemies – people that might be the enemies of both of y’all – you give them opportunity to do something to you without being blamed; it’s dangerous.” Later the Left Coast lyricist made a poignant connection to the waxed beef between 2Pac and Biggie which lead to the death of two of Hip-Hop’s most revered lyricists.
He believes, “Pac didn’t kill Biggie and Biggie didn’t kill Pac, but because of their beef the media has liked them together as killing each other. It didn’t happen like that; because, of their beef was so public everybody thinks they did each other.”
What will be the eventual outcome of the Meek Mill – Drake beef?
