Meek Mill may have taken a major L for the month of July, but there’s still a chance he can redeem himself in his rap battle with 6 God. During the junket for Straight Out of Compton, HipHollywood asked seasoned rapper Ice Cube if he has any advice for Meek.
“He gotta go for the jugular,” Cube said while laughing. “There’s no other way to do it. You gotta learn more about Drake, I guess his personal issues, to put them in a rhyme.”
Ice Cube knows a thing or two about rap beefs. The actor dropped the classic diss record “No Vaseline” back in 1991. The record was aimed at his former NWA partner, Eazy-E. On the track, Cube raps:
“Throw a house n*gga in a ditch / Half-pint b*tch, f*cking your homeboys / You little maggot; Eazy E turned f*ggot / With your manager, fella / F*cking MC Ren, Dr. Dre, and Yella / But if they were smart as me / Eazy-E a’be hanging from a tree.”
Things between Cube and the group turned sour after he parted ways to embark on a solo career. Eazy-E responded by calling him a Benedict Arnold which prompted “No Vaseline.” Cube also had a short beef with Chicago native Common, dissing him on the Westside Connection song, “Westside Slaughterhouse.”
“Used to love her, mad cause we f*cked her. P*ssy whipped b*tch with no Common Sense. Hip hop started in the west. Ice Cube bailin’ through the east without a vest.”
In July, Meek Mill foolheartedly launched into a Twitter tirade accusing Drake of using a ghostwriter. Drake responded with, “Charged Up” and “Back to Back,” two diss tracks that had the Twitterverse eagerly anticipating a rebuttal from Meek. The Philly rapper returned fire with “Wanna Know,” but the lackluster tune was panned by just about everyone, including Rosetta Stone and a hamburger chain.
