As Drake and 21 Savage's It's All A Blur Tour has torn through the summer, the North American trek has been filled with so many memorable moments. During the pair's latest stop in Philadelphia, Drake added another to the book when he entered the venue with his former foe Meek Mill, and showed the Philly rapper some serious love.
"Y'all see who I walked out here with right?" Drake said after stepping on stage at the Wells Fargo Center, per The Shade Room. "I'd always keep it 100 with you. The last time I was in this building, that man right here he's been representing this city since he started this shit."
He continued, "That man, me and him weren't getting along at the time, and he is a real n***a so he definitely got us up out of Philly real quick we did not get to stick around and chill. On the real shit I'm gonna tell you the truth, and it means the most to me that I could come back to this city and show the growth as two men that we can come here tonight and we can represent for motherfucking Philadelphia together. That's what this shit is about. So I appreciate he walking me to stage tonight. Philly I appreciate you embracing me with open arms."
Drake and Meek Mill’s feud was one of the most memorable rap moments in 2015. The Philadelphia rapper at the time accused the 6 God of relying on ghostwriters to pen his verses, specifically Quentin Miller, whose name emerged after his reference tracks for Drake’s If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late leaked online.
The pair traded diss tracks, with Drake's "Back To Back" ultimately earning a nomination for Best Rap Performance at the 58th Grammy Awards later that year. The duo then patched things up and teamed up for “Going Bad,” which appeared on Meek's Championships album in 2018. The Wheezy-produced anthem went on to reach No. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and topped the Billboard Rhythmic Songs chart.
Drake has shouted out Meek numerous times since their collab, most notably in 2019, when Drizzy took the stage with Meek in California as part of his Motivation Tour.
“First of all, I want everybody that’s in the house right now to make some noise for this muthafuckin’ man right here,” Drake said at the time. “You definitely had the best comeback of all time. Real shit. That’s my muthafuckin’ brother right there for real. Sometimes, I see a lot of people who don’t understand this. And I’m gonna let you know, in life, this is what it’s about."
He added, "Sometimes you gotta come together and get it together. That’s what it’s about. I want you to remember that in your own personal situations. This is the goal, this is the objective. Now I’m back on stage with my brother, we getting money together.”
21 Savage and Drake will return for another show at the Wells Fargo Center tonight before moving on to Milwaukee on Aug. 3.
