Meek Mill Says Kendrick Lamar Beef Isn't "Negative"
Meek Mill also says who he thinks is the hottest rapper in the game right now.
On Friday (October 25), Meek Mill closed out Philadelphia radio station's Power99 Powerhouse concert.
Several days prior to the event, Meek took to Twitter to lob a shot at Kendrick Lamar, asserting his dominance in Philadelphia:
The tweet was part of an ongoing beef with Kendrick Lamar which began when Kendrick called out several rappers (including Meek) and calling himself the King of the East Coast on his verse on Big Sean's "Control (HOF)."
In a recent interview with Power 99, Meek explained that the beef was all in good fun. "A lot of people, they be takin' it the wrong way," said Meek of the tweet. "Me and Kendrick, we smile and laugh about it. I was just talking about, 'I'ma show you who the king around this area right here [is].'"
"No negative stuff, straight Hip Hop," he added.
Meek also spoke about who he thought, if anyone, could lay claim to the title of "king" in Hip Hop today. "The hottest person right now I think is Drake, of course," he said. "But everybody king in they own way. Kendrick might say he king lyrically, I might say I'm the king of the street era, raw Hip Hop type. It's different kings in different situations, so it depends on what you're talking about."
