Meek Mill has been riding through a wild week, dropping “War Pain”, the 4/4 EP, and skipping the box for house arrest.
After Drake dropped “summer sixteen”, a leading single for his upcoming record Views From The Six, Meek Mill took some small shots over Instagram. He claimed to have seen the lyrics for “Summer Sixteen” courtesy of its ghostwriter. Then Milly brought out the real straps on soundcloud dropping “War Pain”. Some have remarked that the timing seems foolish as the beef is “over”. While I can agree the eye of the storm has passed, Drake did give lip service to the beef on “summer sixteen” so Milly’s decision to clap back isn’t without reason. It also is worth mentioning that “War Pain” is a really good track. It doesn’t have a lot of quotables, but Milly’s voice visibly seethes with anger. The same goes for the 4/4 EP, which has Meek showing his teeth on every song. His style benefits from having tangible energy behind the flow. Which is why while Meek may have taken the L in terms of the immidiate clash with Drake, I think he will take that encounter and use it as a tinder to the fire he throws in his voice.
Milly has also crawled his way out of another L, where he was facing jail time for violating his parole by exiting the state.
Judge imposes house arrest on Meek Mill, then 6 years on probation. He turns himself in March 1. "This could've over long ago," judge says

He is said to be on house arrest and will not be able to release music for 3 months. This probably will have a negative affect on his career but most definitely negligible compared to actually going to jail. So at the end of things Meek has made it out of L land, but he’s not exactly grasping that W quite yet.
