Meek Mill Underwhelms the Public With ‘Wanna Know’ Drake Diss Track

After two consecutive diss tracks from Drake — “Charged Up” and the aptly-titled “Back to Back” — Meek Mill issued a response last night (July 31) in a song called “Wanna Know.” Unfortunately, a vocal section of the internet wants to know why Meek didn’t offer a sharper response.

The song, produced by Roc Nation’s Jhalil Beats and heavyweight Swizz Beatz, contains what Meek seems to consider Exhibit A in his claim that Drake uses a ghostwriter: A sample of rapper and songwriter Quentin Miller performing a reference track for what became “Know Yourself” on Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late (Miller is credited on several songs in the album’s liner notes).

Of all the attempts at lyrical riposte Meek offers on “Wanna Know,” the strangest is his allegation that “You let Tip homie piss on you in a movie theater.” This has definitely piqued the general public’s interest.

The expectations for Meek’s comeback arguably raised with every hour that passed without an official response to “Back to Back.” And, frankly, the skills that have been both commercially and critically celebrated with the release of Dreams Worth More Than Money aren’t in full display on “Wanna Know.” Did he get a case of what’s known in the golf community as the yips?

Drake (who was already winning this feud/popularity contest) was clearly unbothered:

Lil Kim — who is no friend of Meek’s girlfriend, Nicki Minaj — decided to weigh in with a scathing GIF.

On one hand, this feud has fueled a new dialogue about the role contributors play in composing hit rap records, disrupting the long-held notion of a rapper as authentic artiste with a voice all his or her own. On the other hand, it’s a great chance for people to flex their meme-making fingers. Largely-anonymous critics of the internet: We salute you.

Even brands got in on the pile-on:

What do you think of “Wanna Know”? Has a victor emerged in this feud, and will it ever be over? Share your thoughts in the comments.
