A previous clip of the interview showed Tax asking Meek what his first thought was when he heard Drake's "Back to Back" diss song. Meek responded, "I ain't think it was no shit that people was gonna be like, 'you got killed.' I thought it was hot. Like when we shoot at niggas, you gotta shoot a nigga through the heart. When you wake up in the mirror, you looking in the mirror, you hearing what the nigga told you, some shit about yourself that you can’t even deal with. That's how we battle where we come from."
Now, we finally get the reason in Meek's words why he didn't respond to "Back to Back." "Because I wasn't really, I was on tour at this time when all that shit was going on," he told Tax. "When I record, I don't really record like that. I always move at my time. Even like with Game, I wasn't going to make no diss record about him. Omelly facetime in the stu with Beans and I just pulled up."
It turns out the whole issue with Drake started for Meek after he got out of jail. "We kinda had a relationship. I haven't seen him since I came home. You know, me and the Nicki situation and I haven't ran into you yet," explains Meek. "I had a show in Philly. He was supposed to come to my show. They said they don't know about it...iIhad this shit set up for four months. The day of, nobody comes through and call me so I'm just backstage looking like a fraud to everybody I told." When asked if he thinks they will ever squash the beef, Meek says yes. "Yeah, we don't got no real problem. We don't have no real problem."
They also touch on his recent beef with the Game. Meek admits that the first time he heard Game was going off, he thought he was talking about someone else since the "last time I seen him we was just in the club," he says. "It was an immediate issue...You trying to destroy my name." He also questions the way Game handled it all. "I was in L.A," adds Meek. "You could have pulled up and handled it however you wanted...It was premeditated." As for Sean Kingston, Meek simply says, "I dont talk to Sean Kingston on the phone nor do I really talk to Sean Kingston."
Of course, the rapper's deteriorating relationship Beanie Sigel came up with Tax asking Meek how he feels about the rapper now. "I don't feel nothing," responds Meek. "I just thought that was—I don't know what that was...I looked up to Beanie Sigel my whole life."
Meek's relationship with Nicki Minaj was also fair game for the interview. "Everyone goes after Nicki with me and I don't get it. That's supposed to be a bad thing? My lady's a go getter—is that a bad thing?" he says. "She's on a whole other level of life as a person, as an artist...Yeah, I'm on my girl's tour. We getting right every night. She's probably making 450 or some shit like that. It's lit." Meek also calls that story that he Facetimed Nicki back when she was dating Safaree "a lie." "How would I Facetime Nicki when safari was with some bitches. When was safari ever around me when I could Facetime Nicki? I dont fuck with him. I didn't fuck with him when that was going on."
"Riding in the Wraith, stars in the roof. You asked for it so we delivered. Pour some Dusse, roll your finest in an Optimo and press play," Tax captioned the episode.
