Prince Vega – Rapper Drake is finally opening up about his battle against Meek Mill to Fader. The platinum Canadian artist went deep into his thoughts and laid it all out for the world to hear for the very first time.
“I’m just gonna bring it up ‘cause it’s important to me,” he recalls of the day he found out Flex was leaking his reference tracks. “I was at a charity kickball game—which we won, by the way—and my brother called me. He was just like, ‘I don’t know if you’re aware, but, yo, they’re trying to end us out here. They’re just spreading, like, propaganda. Where are you? You need to come here.'”
He continues, “So we all circled up at the studio, and sat there as Flex went on the air, and these guys flip-flopped [about how] they were gonna do this, that, and the third.”
He also went on to speak about ‘Charged Up’ being a song just to remind people about what he do, saying “Given the circumstances, it felt right to just remind people what it is that I do,” he explained, “in case your opinions were wavering at any point.”
His words didn’t stop there. He also admitted he was frustrated and confused that everyone that was dissing him stopped after the release of his diss tracks.
“This is a discussion about music, and no one’s putting forth any music?” he questioned, irritated. “Nobody told you that this was a bad idea, to engage in this and not have something? You’re gonna engage in a conversation about writing music, and delivering music, with me? And not have anything to put forth on the table?”

“I need, sometimes, individuals to spark an idea so that I can take off running. I don’t mind that. And those recordings—they are what they are. And you can use your own judgment on what they mean to you.”
