With the feud escalating between Drake and Meek Mill over alleged ghostwriting rumors, the Toronto rapper/singer fired back today with the release of his second Meek Mill diss, “Back to Back” freestyle. While many focused on some of the more notable lines like, “This for y’all that think that I don’t write enough / They just mad cause I got the Midas touch / Ya love her then ya gotta get a world tour / Is that a world tour, or your girl’s tour?” we couldn’t help but notice the sly diss in the cover art as well.
In the 1993 World Series, the Toronto Blue Jays squared off against the Philadelphia Phillies – looking to become the first MLB team to win back-to-back titles since the Yankees achieved the feat in 1977 and 1978. As many rap fans are aware, Drake is a devoted Toronto resident and Meek is proud of his City of Brotherly Love heritage.
With the Blue Jays up three games to two in a potential series clinching game six in Toronto, Joe Carter – the man in the “Back to Back” cover art – stepped into the batters box. Down 6-5 in the bottom of the ninth inning – and with two runners on board – Carter took a 2-2 pitch from Mitch Williams and deposited it into the left-field seats. Carter joined Bill Mazeroski as one of the only two players to win a World Series with a home run in the bottom of the ninth inning of the deciding game.
Here’s hoping that Meek Mill returns with a song called “The Answer” with cover art of Allen Iverson.
