Drake didn’t waste anytime dropping another diss record aimed at Meek Mill. Drake’s “Back to Back” is the follow-up to the rapper’s first diss track regarding Mill, which is entitled “Charged Up.” Besides going on Twitter to respond to Drake, Mill has yet to lyrically respond to the Toronto rapper. Drake addressed Mill’s actions in “Back to Back” by rapping that Mill’s “trigger fingers turned to Twitter fingers.” Mill was expected to drop a response to Drake on Monday night, but that diss record never came into fruition. Hot 97 DJ Funkmaster Flex, who intially involved himself in the “ghostwriting” accusations, announced on social media that Mill was dropping a response to “Charged Up.” The DJ posted on Instagram that the Mill’s response would premiere on Hot 97 at 7pm (Eastern standard time), but unfortunately Flex never received the song.
Fans and listeners tuned in awaiting the Mill diss record, and once they realized there was no song, anticipation turned into anger. People were pointing fingers at Hot 97 and Flex, and someone even created a petition to have Flex fired from the radio station. Hot 97’s Ebro Darden confirmed that Flex was supposed to receive Mill’s response song by Maybach Music Group, but the song was never sent. Instead of letting his fans know he wasn’t releasing the response, Mill tweeted “lol” and posted a fake 15-second diss song.
Mill is currently the opening act on his girlfriend Nicki Minaj’s Pinkprint Tour. The tour recently made a stop in Drake’s hometown of Toronto, and hundreds of fans showed their support for Drake by wearing t-shirts with pictures of two cell phone battery icons; Drake’s name was below the “charged up” green battery while Mill’s name was below the battery with one red lit bar. In his “Back to Back” diss, Drake rapped about Mill being on tour with Minaj. “You love her then you gotta give the world to her/ Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour/ I know that you gotta be a thug for her/ This ain’t what she meant when she told you to open up more.” It should also be noted Drake named the song “Back to Back” in reference to the Toronto Blue Jays back-to-back World Series wins against the Philadelphia Phillies in 1992 and 1993. Mill’s hometown is Philadelphia.
