HOT TOPIC: HOW MEEK MILL COULD’VE ETHER-ED DRAKE

meek-mill-vs-drake-2015-nikkisiixx

This is not B.I.G. vs. 2Pac. This is not Jay Z vs. Nas. Contrary to Meek Mill’s belief, this is certainly not 50 Cent vs. Ja Rule. This is not even beef, “Beef is when you need two gats to go to sleep.” This is a rap BATTLE. Whether you find it entertaining or not, you cannot deny that this current rap battle has sparked an energy and buzz around the music industry that we have not seen in many years. While all signs are pointing to Drake as the guy demolishing his opponent right now, what if I told you it could have very easily resulted another way. I’m about to tell you how Meek Mill could’ve ether-ed Drake.

5l4Gb0XaWhen Meek Mill gathered factual proof that Drake does not write all of his raps on his own, he should have never broke the news on Twitter. Today’s younger rap fans and Drake fans might say it does not matter, but guess what: IT DOES MATTER and people who live and breathe the culture knows this. This is one of, if not the biggest thing you can ever hold over a MC’s head in a battle. Instead of a Twitter post, he should have recorded a diss verse (preferably over a Drake beat) and release it on the Internet without any warning. In the verse he should have aimed a line or two at Drizzy like, “And don’t compare to me Drake, he don’t write all of his own raps!” Meek Mill would not even have to reveal knowledge of the reference tracks just yet because that one line alone would have been enough to get the rap world’s attention and leave people wondering where this is all coming from. By doing this he would have caught Drake’s camp totally off guard, which is a perfect war tactic. Blindside your opponent when it’s time to invade. He also would have established himself as the aggressor. So if you compare it to boxing, usually the more aggressive boxer gets the most cheers from the crowd (in this case, the fans.) Ultimately, the fans get a say in who won the battle or not. After the first shot, Meek should have stayed off of social media, no rants and Twitter fingers. Let Drake think he may not have something like the reference tracks to destroy him. Wait for a reply on record. Once Drake responds, which could have possibly sounded different, than what he has out now, that is when Meek Mill (without any warning from his team or famous DJ’s) should have came back immediately with the ether.

First of all, this would have negated any chance of there being a record called “Back to Back” and would have killed any of the self proclaimed 6 God’s momentum. This is when Meek should have let everything out without holding back anything. I’m talking about three verses mentioning everything from having a co-writer to the alleged incident inside of the “Takers” movie screening in 2010. This is when he goes back to his battle rap days and use that approach. That means rapping some facts, jokes, personal attacks, and great delivery to humiliate the biggest guy in Hip-Hop. This would have made Drizzy vulnerable and his back would have been against the ropes. It would have sent rap fans, bloggers, radio, and social media into a frenzy. It would not have knocked out Drake the singer and entertainer but it would have ether-ed Drake the lyricist and MC. Meek Mill, the flashy and energetic kid from the streets of Philadelphia, would have been victorious. Battle over.

Unless you’ve been living on Mars the past few weeks, you know that it did not play out that way at all. Unfortunately, Meek Mill underestimated his foe and Drake was almost flawless with his counter attack. Instead of being strategic, Meek was in his feelings and “jump[ed] out the face.” I’m not going to say this battle is over, but I will say that Mr. Dream Chaser has a lot of catching up to do.

P.S. My sister, Jasmine Turner, is responsible for the line “jump[ed] out the face” in this article. She got her credit now I’m gone.

Video: The Next Science Genius THNKR

I found this video in my inbox recently and I just wanted to share with you, all. I think it’s pretty dope that Dr. Christopher Emdin & Wu-Tang Clan member GZA are using the hip hop culture to adapt in secondary schools with science topics. Dr. Emdin discusses how he feels about hip-hop battles and how he’s working on a Science Genius Rap Battle Competition which are from selective schools in New York. The concept of the battles is to study science text, learn science through rhymes. Merging Science with Hip-Hop. I respect what they’re doing, and I can imagine how interesting the battles will be with those specific topics.

OVER THE COURSE OF A SEMESTER, 10 NYC HIGH SCHOOL CLASSES WRITE RAPS ON CORE SCIENCE CONCEPTS TO DEMONSTRATE AN IN-DEPTH KNOWLEDGE OF THE TOPICS. -EPIPHANY
