Drake and Meek Mill beefed for several years, but now they are at peace, and Drizzy is promoting the Philly MC’s new album, Expensive Pain.

“PAIN GETS EXPENSIVE AT MIDNIGHT,” Drake wrote on his Instagram story. “@meekmill proud of u boy since the Bahamas cook up we were plotting on the next chapter time to eat.”

The feud between Drake and Meek Mill sparked in 2015, when Meek stated that the Champagne Papi used a ghostwriter to write his lyrics. Mill says that feud led to his worst year in music four years later.

“2019, I think my slowest year, me and Drake was beefing. I was at a disadvantage,” he told Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, as reported by HotNewHipHop. “He was winning, in the eyes of the people. I still walked my way through that, went through prison, I had to go through something. Once I bounced back out, Championships. We had a pandemic, two years go by, few people fading away.

“We in 2021, I’m going to stand on Expensive Pain,” Meek continued. “I’m going to stand on my talent, and I’m going to remain confident and hope that people pay attention to what’s going on because they got a long way to go. I’m trying to keep pushing.”

Expensive Pain is Mill’s fifth studio album, following Championships in 2018. It features Lil Baby, Kehlani, Lil Uzi Vert, Moneybagg Yo, Young Thug, Lil Durk, A$AP Ferg, Brent Faiyaz, Giggs and Vory.

Mill also announced a star-studded “Expensive Pain: Meek Mill & Friends” album playback concert on October 23 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. He’ll perform the new project in its entirety alongside several special guests.
