On Meek Mill, Drake & Ghostwriting

Friday, July 31st, 2015

Last night, after about a week and a half, Meek Mill finally responded to Drake with an actual diss track. Most of the reactions that I’ve seen within the last 12 hours or so seem to indicate that Meek has lost this first round. Personally, I was super underwhelmed by “Wanna Know”, a rambling diss track over an ominous production by Jahlil Beats and Swizz Beatz on which Meek seemed more concerned with showcasing his flow then going for Drake’s jugular. To me, an effective diss needs to lay out clear shots that connect immediately with listeners. About a minute into this song I knew this wasn’t it. It also didn’t help that the track arrived nearly two hours after it was supposed to, hyped up by Flex and Meek’s shooters as an undeniable kill shot.

The diss relies heavily on the accusation that Drake utilized a ghostwriter, relative unknown Quentin Miller, for many of the most popular tracks on If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. It features samples from a reference track for “Know Yourself” that leaked minutes before Meek’s response showed up. In the aftermath Meek, his camp and his most vocal supporters seem pretty incredulous as to why the general public hasn’t accepted this as the “Ether” they clearly thought it was. What they failed to consider is many of Drake’s supporters could care less if he uses a ghostwriter. Meek basically tried to turn a battle with an international pop star into a referendum on lyrical integrity.
