Meek Mill muscles in with some old-school trash talk

18 January 2016 - 02:08 By Leonie Wagner

The 2016 "diss track" school is open and American rapper Meek Mill has already handed in his first assignment. Mill released a four-track EP at the weekend called 4/4 and wasted no time in rekindling his beef with Drake and adding a new target.Now the Philadelphia rapper is targeting 50 Cent.Last year, Mill lost his feud after Drake dropped the soul-piercing Back to Back. The Toronto-born rapper turned the bashing into an event when he screened a PowerPoint presentation of anti-Mill memes as backing visuals while wearing a "Free Meek Mill" T-shirt at the OVO Fest.In Mill's latest attempt, he calls out 50 Cent by implying the G-Unit boss is gay and pokes fun at him for filing for bankruptcy.Apparently this beef started when 50 Cent laughed at Mill during a concert in Sweden last year.The timing of Mill's EP is interesting as Drake has been teasing about releasing his much-anticipated Views from the 6.If the rumours are true that Drake is about to drop his album any day now, then Mill's release of 4/4 is the equivalent of arriving early to a party and eating the food before the host arrives.
