“Everybody raps in Philly”: Chill Moody weighs in on Meek Mill vs. Drake, discusses new album
The internet has been aflutter over rapper Meek Mill‘s very public feud with Drake, especially in the wake of Drake’s ruthless diss track “Back to Back.” For those who are unfamiliar, the gist of the feud is that Meek accused Drake of not writing all his own raps. It only makes sense that those in Philly’s hip-hop scene have their own two cents about the conflict when considering Meek’s roots in the city.
During a recent radio interview with Hot 97‘s Peter Rosenberg, West Philly rapper Chill Moody explained what he believes is the reason Meek is so vehemently against Drake’s supposed use of ghostwriting.
I think the fact that it’s… that lineage [of Philly MCs], you kind of have to live up to that… I think that’s what drives most of us because, you know, everybody raps in Philly… It’s the culture. You never know when you’re going to get tested.
