Meek Mill is doing what he does best, trying to steal attention away from another artist. His obsession with rapper 6ix9ine, who was recently released from prison, reached new heights on Friday.
Tekashi 6ix9ine announced he was going on Instagram live today, and Meek Mill went on Twitter to remind the world that 6ix9ine is a snitch.
While he’s right, he seems to be forgetting the fact that he’s displayed his own snitch-like behavior in the past. When 6ix9ine did eventually get on Instagram Live, he had an epic response.
6ix9ine recorded his first single in home confinement since being released from prison. The Brooklyn rapper took out a massive billboard in New York City to announce his return.
The billboard said, “The King is Back,” which is hilarious because, in the ad, 6ix9ine looks like a child dressed by his mom.
6ix9ine also announced that he would be going live on Instagram later on Friday. Meek Mill was not happy about it. The Philadelphia rapper tweeted that 6ix9ine was a “rat” who should apologize to the victims or the people he told on.
Meek Mill is right about 6ix9ine. He did become an informant to get a deal while sending other members of his gang to prison. But let’s not pretend Meek has never displayed “rat-like” behavior.
6ix9ine went on Instagram Live to broadcast his epic response to a whopping 2 million live viewers at one point.
He apologized, saying “a rat is doing more numbers than you. I would be mad too.” 6ix9ine said he “snitched and ratted,” on his fellow gang members who “kidnapped” him and ‘slept’ with his baby-mama. He asked why would he be loyal to people who weren’t loyal to him.
6ix9ine said that these rappers were hating on him ‘before he got locked up’ because he had rainbow hair. The snitching, he claimed, was just a convenient excuse to keep hating.
“Y’all don’t want to understand me.”
Earlier, soon after Meek Mill called out 6ix9ine, he got his response. 6ix9ine wrote:
Imagine having a new born baby come into the world & be pressed about a Mexican with rainbow hair.
6ix9ine is referring to the fact that Meek Mill’s son was born on May 6th, and he’s already worried about someone else. But let’s not get confused here. Meek Mill is worried about himself, and he’s calling out whoever he can to feel better.
Back in 2015, when Meek Mill was beefing with rap superstar Drake, he called him out for having a ghostwriter. Why would he do such a thing? Apparently, because Drake didn’t give Meek the attention he wanted after failing to promote Mill’s new album.
Stop comparing drake to me too…. He don’t write his own raps! That’s why he ain’t tweet my album because we found out!
Respected lyricist Lupe Fiasco quickly defended the use of ghostwriters, saying:
Ghostwriting, or borrowing lines, or taking suggestions from the room has always been in rap and will always be in rap. It is nothing to go crazy over or be offended about
So, it appears as though ghostwriting, while not encouraged, is commonly used in hip-hop. It’s an unspoken occurrence, just like it is for comedians who become so famous and busy that they hire a little writing assistance.
And Meek Mill broke this code of silence by publicly calling out Drake. That sounds pretty “snitchy” to me. And all this, just because Drake didn’t promote his album? It seems like somebody wasn’t getting enough attention.
