Drizzy will not let this one go.
On Monday night, during his headlining performance at OVO Fest at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre in his hometown of Toronto, Drake took the stage and ripped through a rousing rendition of “Back to Back,” his diss track aimed at the Philly rapper Meek Mill. But it wasn’t what he said that caught the attention of the 28-year-old’s legion of fans who’ve been lapping up every moment of this ridiculous beef, but what he projected behind him: a series of hilarious memes mocking Meek for losing his war of words with Drizzy.
If you recall, following Meek’s accusation that Drake employed the services of ghostwriters for his raps, including his guest verse on the Meek track “R.I.C.O.,” the Canadian emcee released a pair of diss tracks aimed at Meek, including “Charged Up” and the more venomous “Back to Back,” the latter containing the quotable lines, “Is that a world tour, or your girl’s tour?” and “You getting’ bodied by a singin’ nigga.” The #BackToBack began trending shortly thereafter, with Drizzy’s horde of Twitter acolytes posting memes mocking Meek.When Meek, after a week in the lab, released his rebuttal—“Wanna Know”—it landed with a thud, leading noted beef expert Ice Cube and others to declare Drake the victor.
So, during his performance of “Back to Back” at OVO Fest, an annual music festival curated by Drake himself, the rapper projected many of those same memes behind him, e.g. ones claiming that Iggy Azalea was Meek’s ghostwriter, a Simpsons twist of Meek writing on the chalkboard “I Will Never Ever Disrespect the 6 God,” and one offering Meek Mill a “participation award” for cooking up “Wanna Know,” among others.
If that weren’t enough, during his rehearsals for the performance Drake was snapped wearing a “Free Meek Mill” t-shirt:
