Maybach Music Group’s own Meek Mill has the internet going crazy after releasing a new diss song called “Kendrick You Next” that is directed right at one time friend Cassidy. The name suggests that Kendrick is his next target, but only time will tell.
The song will be included on Meek’s upcoming mixtape Dreamchasers 3 and features the rapper spitting over an array of instrumentals for over five minutes.
“Meek Mill has released a diss record toward fellow Philadelphia rapper Cassidy called “Kendrick You Next.” The five-minute diss track finds Meek rapping over a number of classic instrumentals and aiming shots at Cassidy, who he’s traded bars with in the past. Over the “Who Shot Ya?” instrumental Meek raps, “Cassidy, boy you’re so trash to me/Do the math, I dissed you, that’s subtracting me/You ain’t poppin’/What the fuck could you add to me?” The title of the record is in reference to Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” verse, where the Compton MC name checks Meek along with a number of other rappers. After releasing his new song “I B On That” yesterday featuring Nicki Minaj, French Montana and Fabolous, Meek Mill went on Twitter and said, “Ima catch Kendrick on da intro I ain’t forget! Lol.” That specific record will be included on Meek’s upcoming mixtape Dreamchasers 3, which will be released September 29.” (Complex)
Last month, Meek explained how he took being name dropped on Kendrick’s “Control” verse.
“It definitely wasn’t insulting,” Meek said. “Kendrick Lamar, I don’t think he was trying to insult any of us, you know. We all know each other personally. There were a lot of names that weren’t mentioned … It was a competition thing. I live for competition. Everyone who knows me knows I don’t want to lose in a game of nothing. I don’t want to lose in a game of tic-tac-toe. I’m not going to make a diss record for Kendrick Lamar. But if he wants to get competitive, we’re going to have some fun.” (Power 99)
Cassidy recently went at Meek with his response track to Kendrick’s verse.
“Ain’t no rapper tough as me, that’s why they don’t f*ck with me,” Cassidy goes on. “They can label this a diss when the song drop/’Cause I’m better than your favorite rapper by a long shot/You gonna have to bring the song back after the song stop and rewind all the punchlines that this song got/I paint pictures, no Photoshop/I’m not the King of New York but the King of New York know I’m hot/And no I’m not trying to be the king of Philly/But I been holding down my city/Just as Gillie, really/If any of you n*ggas act silly, I’ll be happy to compete/You seen what happen to Meek/I’m not rapping to get back in the booth/I’m just rapping to be competitive” (“Control” Freestyle)
