DJ Drama on the Drake vs. Meek Mill Beef: “Everyone did something wrong”


DJ Drama takes responsibility.

During an appearance on the New Rory & Mal podcast, the music executive opened up about his role in the Drake vs. Meek Mill beef. Drama admitted he could have handled the situation very differently, suggesting his actions helped fuel the drama that has been going on for years. However, he does not believe he was the only culprit.

The issue between Drake and Meek began in 2015, when rapper Dreamchasers claimed that Quentin Miller was Drizzy’s ghostwriter. Meek would later share Miller’s reference tracks for “10 Bands”, “Used To”, “Know Yourself”, which appeared on Drake’s If you are reading this, it is too late. It was later reported that Meek got the leads directly from Drama, who allegedly tried to get revenge on Drake for meeting his ex.

“Listen, everybody did something wrong, everybody,” DJ Drama told the hosts. “Quentin did something wrong, DJ Drama did something wrong, Drake did something wrong, Meek Mill did something wrong, Nicki Minaj did something wrong, like everybody’s playing a role.”

Drama said he has love for everyone he named and hopes none of them take his comments the wrong way.

“It’s water under the bridge. He fell. It was a hip-hop moment, you know what I mean? Like it’s hip-hop history,” he said. “These guys were able to tell the true version of their stories… There’s also a lot of stuff that I picked up and didn’t air. One day, will it all make sense? Maybe. But, you know, maybe some things are left unsaid. But everyone played a part in how it happened. No one is totally innocent.

The infamous beef was finally crushed in 2018, when Drake invited Meek on stage during the Aubrey & the Three Migos tour.

Drake reflected on the moment in an Instagram post.

“It really gave me peace of mind tonight,” he said. “Healing and moving forward has created one of the most electric and rewarding moments of my career. @meekmill I’m glad you’re home and we can find our way back to our common goal 🙏🏽🙌🏽.
