Toronto Politician Norm Kelly (And The Rest Of The Internet) Trolled Meek Mill After Drake's Diss Track Dropped
Here's when you know that you stand very little chance of winning a rap battle. When you sell 200k in the first week, are engaged to a pop/hip-hop superstar, put out a series of tweets accusing your opponent of the most despicable rap crime in history, and people still aren't fully on your side. People are just like "welllll, he still makes fire jams". Shit, Drake almost won the battle by not having to respond to get people on his side. A dude who is generally regarded as one of the softest guys in the rap game basically beat you without showing up. Jesus, I almost feel bad for Meek Mill. He's like the most famous rapper that no one cares about. I know the name of more Drake albums than Meek Mill songs, and he's not constantly doing shit (other than releasing good music) to stay in the news.
Looks like Meek didn't realize what he was getting himself into when he came after a soft, jewish, Canadian, R&B singer that raps from time to time. Bet he thought he would just steamroll him with his street appeal. No sir. Not if Drake, his rap diss that emasculated (and may have murdered, still waiting on the coroner's report) Meek Mill, and a white-bred politician named Norm have anything to say about it. Canada doesn't have much Meek, but they do currently have the biggest star in hip-hop, whether you appreciate his approach to the craft or not. I don't want to say Meek Mill came at the crown and missed, because his allegations definitely made an impact, just not enough of one. It's like the carnival game when you throw the baseball at the milk bottles. Except Meek's throw hit dead center and none of the bottles moved. He threw his best punch and Drake, Norm, and the rest of Canada just ate it and laughed in his face. The only possible way to have less street cred than a guy that lost to Drake is to be a gangster rapper that gets trolled by Norm Kelly, a Toronto City Councillor.
Rest In Peace Meek Mill.
