TORONTO — Rapper Meek Mill attacked Drake on Twitter on Tuesday, accusing the Canadian superstar of not writing his own raps.
Mill, 28, kicked off a series of tweets by asking fans not to compare him to Drake.
He said he would not have collaborated with Drake on “R.I.C.O.” for Meek’s album Dreams Worth More Than Money if he had known that the Toronto-born rapper didn’t “write that verse.”
Mill claimed other rappers will back him up. “They scared to tell the truth!,” he said.
Drake did not respond on Tuesday — but one of his rap friends weighed in.
Rick Ross tweeted “Drake>>>>>>Meek” but later deleted it and tweeted: “@MeekMill speaking facts!!!!”
Drake fans rallied to his defence.
“Wrote it or not it’s music that wants to be heard,” one commented on Drake’s Instagram.
Another wrote: “Whether you have a ghost writer or not, they are not responsible for your heart. Ignore the hate embrace the love and do it all for yourself.”
“Meek is just a jealous hater,” another fan opined. “That’s not a good look.”
Mill’s social media attack on Drake came on the same day his girlfriend Nicki Minaj appeared to target Taylor Swift in a rant over the MTV Video Music Awards nominations.
