This weekend, Drake ended his long-running beef with Meek Mill.
At the Boston leg of his Aubrey & the Three Migos tour, the Canadian rapper brought Meek Mill out to perform his song “Dreams and Nightmares”, ending a three-year feud – stemming from Dizzy’s alleged use of a ghost-writer – that brought us such wonderful, definitely- not- clunky lines as “Tell Obama that my verses are just like the whips that he in / They bulletproof.”
“We need more peace in the world, we need more love in the world,” Drake said on-stage.
“Meek Mill, that’s my brother, that’s my n***a from the day one. So, we were able to say this tonight in front of all and I’m very honoured and happy, you were here to witness it. He also added, Thank you to Meek Mill and all his Dreamchasers family for coming to Boston.”
Drake showed more of his feelings in an Instagram post after the show. “This really gave me peace of mind tonight,” he wrote. “Healing and moving forward created one of the most electric and gratifying moments of my career.”
He said further: “I’m happy that you are home and that we could find our way back to our joint purpose.”
Being “home”, in this case, refers to Meek Mill’s incredibly unfair prison sentence, in which the rapper served two to four years for breaking his probation – despite the fact that all the charges against him were dropped and that prosecutors did not recommend jail time, and despite the fact that he had been on probation for years. In the end, Meek Mill only served five months of the sentence due to credibility concerns of the witnesses.
