Drake Continues To Go In On Meek Mill, Destroys Him Just On Cover Art Alone

Hip hop is the only music genre I can think of that encourages such fierce competition between the artists. Sure, everybody wants the number one song, or to be the most critically acclaimed, but rock and roll stars and country singers don't care nearly as much about putting down their peers as rappers do. It's just in the blood of the music. It's cool.
So even though we see competition between hip hop artists all the time, we rarely see it to the level of true "beef" anymore. True beef died with Biggie and Pac. Lesser beefs have included Jay Z and Nas, Eminem and Ja Rule. And now, a new era of beef has emerged: Drake vs. Meek Mill, with Meek claiming that Drake doesn't write his own songs and Drake firing back with not one, but two diss track salvos that have the internet on fire.
The first track was "Charged Up," which walked a fine line between damaging and sentimental. It was peaceful, almost. The fangs were implied, not used. So, four days later, with no response from Meek, Drake dropped another one, and it's deadly.
Drake goes in, not just with his words, but with his cover art: Check Toronto's Joe Carter celebrating his walk-off home run to cap back-to-back World Series titles -- this one against, yes, the Philadelphia Phillies, Meek's hometown team.
It's the low-key barbs that hurt the most. Listen to Drake shed his soft-as-Charmin image and drop the ether with "Back to Back Freestyle":
Here's "Charged Up," if you haven't heard it:
So what's good, Meek? Let's hear it.
