Toronto Coun. du­els with rap­per on Twit­ter over Drake com­ments

Cape Breton Post - - ARTS/ENTERTAINMENT -

Toronto coun­cil­lor Norm Kelly has ended up in a Twit­ter feud with Philadelphia rap­per Meek Mill af­ter com­ing to the de­fence of Toronto mu­si­cian Drake. It started when Mill sent a Twit­ter salvo aimed at Drake on Tues­day night af­ter the VMA nom­i­na­tions were an­nounced. “Stop com­par­ing drake to me .... He don't write his own raps! That's why he ain't tweet my al­bum be­cause we found out!,” Mill tweeted. Drake has yet to re­spond, but his sup­port­ers took to Twit­ter. A tweet from Kelly's ac­count was par­tic­u­larly in­dig­nant. “You're no longer welcome in Toronto, MeekMill,” read the mis­sive. Kelly, 73, was once the city's deputy mayor. Mill wasn't about to let that re­sponse go un­chal­lenged. “Aye white man norm what gives you the au­dac­ity to tell me I can't come some­where over me voic­ing my opin­ion! U sound like a thug lol,” he fired back. Kelly re­turned the volley, and backed down on his sug­ges­tion that Mill stay away. “Aye Amer­i­can MeekMill. Didn't say don't come. Just puz­zled why you'd diss a Cana­dian hero a week be­fore com­ing to his city.” Mill has a con­cert sched­uled in Toronto on Tues­day.
