Drake takes a jab at Meek Mill, Phillies in second diss track

Drake dropped a second song on July 29 that attacks rapper Meek Mill, taking a swing at not just the Philly artist, but Philly itself. 

The rap, fittingly titled "Back to Back" (get it?), features a cover photo of Toronto Blue Jays baseball player Joe Carter during his walk-off home run in the 1993 World Series. The competing team, of course, was the Philadelphia Phillies. 

The new rap starts with "Oh man, oh man, oh man, not again," and gets pretty brutal.

I'm not sure what it was that really made y'all mad / But I guess this is what I gotta do to make y'all rap / I mean whoa, can't fool the city, man, they know what's up / Second floor Tootsies, gettin' shoulder rubs / This for y'all who think that I don't write enough / They just mad cause I got the Midas touch

Tootsie's is a soul food bar and lounge on South Street. 

The rap follows "Charged Up," the song Drake originally uploaded to the Internet as a response to Meek Mill's allegations that he doesn't write his own lyrics.

Meanwhile, Meek Mill reportedly showed up late for a July 28 concert in Toronto and was booed after a four-song setlist. 

Following the release of Drake's latest diss track, Twitter users in Philadelphia responded with surprisingly little support for Meek Mill. (Though that may change if/when Mill fires back.)




No word on whether Meek Mill may respond with a track of his own, but fans have created several tongue-in-cheek GoFundMe campaigns since this morning that pressure him to do so.

The feud began following criticism of Drake for not promoting a song ("R.I.C.O.") that he's featured in on Meek Mill's latest album, "Dreams Worth More Than Money." The issue then evolved into a Twitter war of words about writing their own raps

Remarks from Meek Mill praising Drake first indicated the feud might be over. Apparently not.
