Drake in­vokes Joe Carter in latest shot at Meek Mill in rap­pers’ feud

Cape Breton Post - - ARTS/ENTERTAINMENT - BY NICK PATCH TORONTO

Touch ‘em all, Drake. The Toronto rap­per in­voked beloved ex-Blue Jays slug­ger Joe Carter with his latest shot in his on­go­ing feud with rap­per Meek Mill.

The Grammy win­ner is­sued “Back to Back” overnight, ac­com­pa­nied by a photo of Carter’s tri­umphant trot fol­low­ing his World Se­ries-win­ning walk-off home run in 1993.

Of course, Toronto’s op­po­nent that year was Philadelphia - Mill’s home town.

Af­ter “Charged Up,” it’s Drake’s sec­ond lyri­cal re­sponse to Mill, who al­leged on Twit­ter re­cently that Drake doesn’t write his own rhymes.

On “Back to Back,” the 28year-old Drake takes sev­eral shots at Mill’s re­la­tion­ship to rap ti­tan Nicki Mi­naj, a long­time co­hort of Drake’s whom Mill is cur­rently sup­port­ing on tour.

“You love her, then you gotta give the world to her,” Drake raps. “Is that a world tour or your girl’s tour?”

Mi­naj per­formed in Toronto on Tues­day and al­lowed Mill to make a cameo ap­pear­ance dur­ing her head­lin­ing set. Sev­eral fan-shot videos de­pict Mill be­ing heartily booed by the par­ti­san Toronto crowd.

Posted early Wed­nes­day morn­ing, Drake’s freestyle ac­tu­ally seems to ref­er­ence the fresh in­ci­dent.

“I mean, whoa, can’t fool the city man, they know what’s up,” he rapped.

This spat be­gan when Mill is­sued a se­ries of tweets al­leg­ing that Drake “don’t write his own raps,” in­clud­ing his verse on Mill’s re­cent “R.I.C.O.”
