Song of the Month – Meek Mill Going Bad feat. Drake

RnB/Hip Hop | Tuesday 4th December 2018 | Jake

Drake and Meek Mill commemorate the end of their long-running feud with a monumental hit, appearing on the latter’s latest album, Championships.

The track feels like the culmination of a landmark year for both artists. Drake has been in conciliatory mood of late, bar the back and forth with Pusha T, squashing beef, and handing out features that help make an artist (think Blocboy JB). Meek meanwhile handled his ignominious loss to Drake extremely well, pushing out tapes reminding the rap world of his questioned talents.



A brief stint in prison for Meek appears to have been the catalyst for the reunion. Drake brought the Philadelphia native out on a tour show to a shocked crowd, and welcoming him back from his legal troubles. Drake was further thankful for Meek’s freedom on social media.

The song itself is a hard-hitting track produced by the Atlantan Wheezy. Drake takes the first verse and chorus, flying into the latter with a stuttering bridge. The Canadian shifts flow at will, even sliding into singing voice without being incongruous. Meek delivers a solid second verse, name-checking his Toronto partner multiple times. It’s arguably the best track on a strong album, and a song that will be remembered as one of the great reconciliation tracks.
