Meek Mill, Drake Beef One Year Later: 5 Ways The Battle Has Changed Meek For The Better

Believe it or not, this past Thursday (July 21) marked one year since the Meek Mill, Drake beef started, and the Philly rapper sent that now infamous tweet.

"Stop comparing Drake to me too," he wrote out of the clear blue sky. "He don't write his own raps. That's why he ain't tweet my album, because we found out."

From there, the Internet exploded, and everyone in hip-hop instantly tuned in to the biggest rap beef in quite some time.

Eventually, Drizzy released a response cut titled "Charged Up," which got mixed reviews but after he dropped "Back To Back" things changed for Meek, and he was instantly memed online.

Since then, however, the DreamChaser has taken some positive steps and has changed some of his ways for the better. Is it possible that he learned something from the Drake battle? Maybe but whether he did or didn't, these are some of the changes we've noticed so far.

1. Meek Has Slowed Down On Dissing Other Rappers On Twitter

After Mr. Mill fought with Drake and took a loss, he kept talking about it online. Then he got into Internet spats with 50 Cent and Wale and didn't seem very focused on music.

But it's been awhile since he's started a beef on social media, and lately Meek has even gotten into posting political statements.

2. Meek Seems To Be Thinking About Others More, Not Just Winning In The Rap Game

Like we said, the 29-year-old has been addressing some of the social issues of the day, namely the recent shootings that took place in Louisiana and Minneapolis.

The change could have to do with Meek simply getting older, or maybe he's just frustrated with what he sees. Either way, it's a step in the right direction

3. He's Doing Far Less Complaining These Days

There was one point last year when Meek seemed angry at anyone who didn't champion his music or help him promote it, and from a distance it looked like he always felt slighted or dissed.

Fortunately for the rapper, he's stopped doing that in recent months, which will only bring more attention to his music.

4. The Way It Appears, He's Making A Strong Effort To Stay Out Of Legal Trouble 

Ever since the "R.I.C.O." rapper faced a judge in a probation hearing earlier this year, he's made it clear that he wanted to do better and avoid trouble. 

"I don't want to be a criminal," he told the judge. "I'm not a gangster, but I'm not a perfect man." 

And just days ago, Meek said that he's going to stop rapping about "extreme violence," which a lot of folks probably didn't see coming. 

5. Meek Seems Far More Focused On Music These Days 

After the MMG spitter stopped focusing so much on Drake, "Back To Back" and all of the Internet responses, he started sharing music more, and everything he's posted sounded top rate.
