Drake Responds to Meek Mill's Ghostwriting Accusations
The bad blood between rappers Drake and Meek Mill keeps heating up. Earlier this week, Nicki Minaj's boo Meek Mill began publicly accusing Nicki's bestie Drake of not writing his own verses, and yesterday, Drake decided to break his silence. Well… sort of. In a private Instagram message between Drake and his friend, Drizzy said "I signed up for greatness. This comes with it." Last night, Meek issued a public apology for Nicki for slamming her BFF. Hopefully this will be the end of that feud! [Entertainment Tonight]
