Cease Fire: Drake and Meek Mill Put The Past Behind Them in Boston
The Toronto rapper and his former adversary reunited on-stage in Boston last night to pronounce this particular beef dead on arrival.
Last night at the first of two consecutive stops of Aubrey & The Three Migos in Boston, Drake’s surprised the crowd by welcoming his onetime foe Philadelphian to the stage. After what tour photographer Anthony Hilliard describes as “the most genuine embrace I’ve seen in a while,” Meek launched into a performance of “Dreams and Nightmares.”
This particular quarrel was the spark to 2015’s Ghostwritergate, in which Meek took offense to Drake not tweeting his album and recklessly commenced a series of events that would eventually result in his own demise-by-decent-diss-track.
At another point in the show, Drake noted that another former adversary, Kanye West, was welcome at any show, matching the sentiments of reconciliation West expressed in recent tweets and a hometown press run of local radio stations. There’s is a beef of paternal discretion, stemming from Pusha T’s naming of Drake’s child in “The Story of Adidon” and the subsequent investigation into how Push acquired the information.
