Kendrick Lamar and Meek Mill have been going back-and-forth with each other ever since Kendrick called out Meek on his "Control" verse. Fans have been speculating just how serious this dispute has been for several months and now, they finally have an answer.
Both Kendrick and Meek were scheduled to perform last night at Powerhouse in Meek's hometown of Philadelphia. Cognizant of this fact, Meek made a bold declaration several days before the concert:
At Powerhouse, both Kendrick and Meek performed. As Kendrick was getting on stage, Meek was interviewed by Power 99 about the "beef." Meek said that their issues are not that serious, and are focused strictly on hip-hop. Apparently the two rappers see each other in person and laugh about things. Meek did say, however, that he would top Kendrick's performance and show him who the "King" of Philly is, citing his homecourt advantage.
Meek ended up bringing Rick Ross, French Montana, Jadakiss, and Nicki Minaj, and more artists on stage to perform with him during his Powerhouse set. It was a big moment for the hometown hero. Not only did it wow the audience, it also wowed Kendrick:
Philly was A1 at Power house homie. Had a ball. @MeekMill You showed out on me in yo city huh. I seen it G Phonk. A1.— Kendrick Lamar (@kendricklamar) October 26, 2013
Clearly, both artists have respect for each other. Up next for Kendrick is his homecoming performance at the Staples Center for the Yeezus tour.
