Drake Calls Meek Mill Reunion 'Healing' And 'Gratifying'
Drake told us on “Scorpion” that he was embracing his role as the “good guy,” and this weekend he demonstrated just that by reuniting with Meek Mill onstage at the Boston stop of the Aubrey and the Three Amigos tour.
Drake broke his silence on the onstage reunion, calling it a career highlight.
“This really gave me peace of mind tonight,” he said of performing with Meek Mill. “Healing and moving forward created one of the most electric and gratifying moments of my career.”

The vitriol between the two rappers spilled from the recording booth to social media when Drake posted memes of his then-rival onstage at his annual OVO festival as the crowd bellowed, “Is that a world tour/ or your girl’s tour,” from his Grammy-nominated Meek Mill diss, “Back to Back.”
Meek Mill also spoke out about their beef being over. Choosing fewer words in his Instagram caption, Meek wrote: “WE BOTH HAPPY AS SHITTT!”
Drake’s reunion with Meek isn’t the only time the Toronto-bred has been willing to call a truce. After trading bars with Pusha T earlier this year, he tapped out of their rap beef on the advice of his mentor, Rap-a-Lot Records founder J. Prince.
And what did the two rap superstars do after publicizing their reunion? They played a friendly game of ping-pong of course. Now that’s gangsta.
