(AllHipHop News) Most of the Hip Hop community applauded when Meek Mill and Drake publicly ended their years-long beef in September. Seeing the two rap stars share a stage together again had many fans hoping another collaboration like "Amen" and "R.I.C.O." was on the way.
"I think that’s possible," Meek told Vulture about possibly recording music with Drake. "What we did was genuine. We didn’t just do it for the love of the people ‘cause we could’ve been done that. We waited until we were ready and did that."
The Philadelphia emcee's Championships album lands this Friday, November 30. It's been confirmed that the project will include contributions from Cardi B, Ella Mai, Fabolous, Anuel AA, and Kodak Black.
When asked if his "ghostwriting" complaints directed at Drake during their battle applied to Cardi's admission to having co-writers, Meek offered a more measured response. The Atlantic Records artist proposed that getting assistance with lyrics just removes that person from holding "certain titles."
"Like even Puff Daddy, of course, he had writers. He wouldn’t claim he was a f*cking all-time lyricist. Even Michael Jackson, I assume he had people like Teddy Riley write for him. But he’s still one of the greatest of all time," expressed Meek. "It’s just all about what your aim is. I have no right to judge the way anyone makes their money and creates.”
At the time, the "Meek Mill versus Drake" conflict put Meek's then-girlfriend and Drake's labelmate Nicki Minaj in the middle of the rivalry. The former couple hasn't publicly addressed their current friendship status, but Nicki did take playful shots at her ex on "Barbie Dreams" by implying Meek was still sending her direct messages on social media.
"I ain’t get no heads-up [about the song], but I definitely wasn’t in nobody’s DMs. And definitely wasn’t nobody ducking me, sh*t. That’s a fact,” stated Meek. “I actually was laughing at it, too. ‘Cause there’s no limits! I felt it and I liked it. That’s a dope rap.”
