Following the song, Drake addressed the crowd. “We need more peace in the world, we need more love in the world,” he said. “Meek Mill, that’s my brother, that’s my nigga from day one, so were were able to do this tonight in front of y’all. I’m very honored that you were here to witness it and I thank you to Meek Mill.”
This has been a very long time coming. Meek and Drizzy initially started beefing in July 2015, after Meek accused Drake of using ghostwriters, opening a can of worms about the authenticity of Drizzy’s song-writing skills. The beef extended to wax, with the Canadian rap star delivering the crippling “Back to Back (Freestyle)” and since then, the two have mostly kept their distance save for a few minor jabs. Now all is good.
The two also shared good vibes about the reunion on their Instagram pages. “This really gave me peace of mind tonight,” Drake captioned a photo of himself and Meek onstage. “Healing and moving forward created one of the most electric and gratifying moments of my career. @meekmill I’m happy that you are home and that we could find our way back to our joint purpose 🙏🏽🙌🏽 (Cue the Kevin Garnett ‘anything is possible’ adlib.”
Meek shared the same sentiment. “MEEK MILL X @champagnepapi WE BOTH HAPPY AS SHITTT! 😁😁.”
