It appeared as though the feud was dying down but Drake and Meek Mill could be bumping heads again. Speculation is rife that Mill could be recording a new diss track after he was pictured in the studio with another rival of the Young Money rapper.
Hip hop fans were kept entertained in July 2015 when Mill accused Drake, 28, of using a ghostwriter resulting in a heated war of words between the rappers. Although many weeks have passed since Drake was declared the winner of the rap battle, rumours suggest Mill could be in the process of firing back after he was spotted in the recording studio with Sauce Walka, a Houston rapper who has feuded with Drake in the past.
Walka shared images on Instagram of himself in the studio with the Ima Boss rapper but made no mention of the nature of their session. Mill has not responded to Drake since releasing his diss track Wanna Know, but fans ridiculed his effort with his rival's tracks Charged Up and Back To Back receiving applause.
Drake made it clear that there is still bad blood between them at the Landmark Festival in Washington DC on 26 September. When the audience began chanting "F**k Meek Mill", the Know Yourself rapper replied: "Don't worry, he's dead already." The Canadian musician addressed the feud publicly for the first time in an interview with Fader magazine and hit back at Mill's ghostwriting allegations.
The Hotline Bling rapper explained: "I need, sometimes, individuals to spark an idea so that I can take off running. Music at times can be a collaborative process, you know? Who came up with this, who came up with that – for me, it's like, I know that it takes me to execute every single thing that I've done up until this point. And I'm not ashamed."
Drizzy also mocked Mill's lack of response and blamed the Maybach Music Group star's team for not coming up with a better plan. He said: "This is a discussion about music, and no one's putting forth any music? You guys are gonna leave this for me to do? This is how you want to play it? You guys didn't think this through at all – nobody." While Mill's career is said to have been ruined by the feud, Drake has emerged unaffected with his collaborative album with Future, What A Time To Be Alive, topping the Billboard 200 chart after shifting 375,000 copies in its first week.
