Hip Hop Beef: Meek Mill x 50 Cent

50-Cent

@MzHanaG

Meek Mill got dragged from pillar to post over Martin Luther King weekend.

It all started on January 16th with the release of Meek Mill’s new four-track EP entitled, 4/4, on which he fired shots at rival Drake on a remix to Drake and Future’s “I’m Da Plug.” With barely a leg to stand on in the rap world and in the wake of destruction from his feud with Drake, Meek then took aim at 50 Cent on “Gave ‘Em Hope,” on behalf of Rick Ross.

The Ross and 50 beef spans years. Nothing new under the sun with these two, except the ongoing saga heating up on social media recently. “Gave ‘Em Hope” starts out like an anthem, with Meek speaking up for his hood on the first verse (rallying local support) before he goes in on 50 in the second verse. The infamous track below:

What happened after that was a flurry of memes posted to social media by stans and then 50. Politicians also expressed their disdain for Meek, posting memes of their own. About halfway through the open season on him, Meek attempted to deter the attention from him and put it on the Flint water crisis, by challenging 50 to match the funds that he (Meek) claimed he was donating. Neither rapper has confirmed whether or not they’ve donated to the impoverished city’s public health emergency. See more at The Daily News.

Meek has demonstrated with all of the rappers he’s confronted (Drake, Future and 50) that he wants to be vocal about his grievances with them, but doesn’t seem to want them to be vocal about him. But it’s hard to initiate negativity, especially in the public eye, without some backlash. See below:

And that’s not all.
