Since Meek is one of the biggest artists to come out of Philly, he tried to use his power and influence to persuade artists in his city to stop all of the violence that’s going on. Unfortunately for him, his good intentions weren’t perceived well by the city’s residents.
“I’ll get all the main big artist in philly a deal if they put them bodies behind them and squash them beefs,” he tweeted. “I hear about ….got some hot young bulls from my city but they all beefing!”
He continued, “And that’s just a idea but I’ll push thru with my city if y’all make it thing! It’s like 5 clicks that’s talented but they deep in! And get they most attention when they beefing!”
While stopping the violence is probably something most people can get behind, the idea of artists putting dead friends and family members “behind them” so that they can move on to get money didn’t go over well with folks.
Following his tweets, Philadelphia natives flooded Meek’s mentions, telling him to stop tweeting. Some commentators mentioned that he should just help out the city instead if he feels so inclined to make a change. Plus, this had fans wondering why he didn’t give this same ultimatum to the other cities that are home to Dreamchaser artists.
One local rapper by the name of Poundside Pop went on to troll Meek for hanging out with his opposition, saying he’s banned from north Philadelphia.
This caused Meek to flood Poundside’s Instagram comments, telling the rapper that no one can ban him from his city. He went on to say that he’s not going to pick a side in beef that doesn’t directly involve him.
