UPDATED 8/23/16 2:30 p.m. ET: According to TMZ, the attempted confrontation was completely cooked up by Meek's team who hit up hundreds of their friends in town and asked them to make a display of force at the Wells Fargo Center. They also put out calls to several nightclubs asking them to reject any request from Drake to hold an after-party and allegedly warned Drake's camp to not show any disrespect while in Meek's hometown. All of this behind-the-scenes plotting is allegedly what got Drake so fired up again and why he through some very direct shots during his performance that seemingly reignited the pair's longstanding beef.

Drake threw some not-so-subliminal shots at his perennial rival Meek Mill on Sunday night in Philadelphia during his "Summer Sixteen" concert stop in the city, and after the show, Meek's crew reportedly showed up to confront him about it. In a series of posts on Instagram, a man who identified himself as being a Dreamchasers affiliate talked tough about going to the concert to see what Drake was all about. "I'ma let y'all niggas know right now, we 100, 200 deep," he said in one IG video. "Dreamchasers, we gonna press this nigga Drake. He's been disrespectful."
Although the crowd didn't look to be anywhere close to 100 people, a group of guys were seen outside the concert gates at the Wells Fargo Center in Philly following the show. It's not confirmed that they were officially affiliated with Meek, but in an IG video, they complained about the fact that Drake enlisted the protection of the police at the conclusion on the concert. "He got the police guarding him and he won't come out," the narrator of the video said. "They closed the gates up and all that." The narrator also noted that Drake "sent J. Prince out here, talking to niggas, man. These niggas pussy."
For his part, Meek Mill posted—and then later deleted—an Instagram caption that seemed to allude to the incident. "When u run out the backdoor wit 12 and use the 'old man' to save you," he wrote, seemingly referencing J. Prince. "I'm done. You had Philadelphia swat with you. Ima go ahead and hang it up with these suckas! Had y'all tucked back in there for hrs lol. #stillrunning. I only came to talk lol."
In a separate post, Meek also plugged his upcoming album Dreamchasers 4, and added, "My hood was out last night!"
Drake didn't respond directly to any of this, but he did post this on his IG while it was going on:
And the beef continues.
