When Meek tweeted shots at Drake, he should have known to prepare himself. Instead, Drake rushed him, and the nail in the coffin was “Back To Back,” with lines about Meek opening up for Nicki’s tour and Nicki “wife-ing” the Philly rapper. The industry shook its head and cheered. As did fans.
Years from now, we’ll look back at this track with great respect for Drake, as he proved himself invulnerable—absorbing credible accusations of getting help with his lyrics. “Back To Back” is not only venomous but party-friendly too. In that respect, Drake won over both the streets and the Internet, making this one of the most crucial songs of the year so far.
