Meek Mill Say Kendrick Lamar Can "Run That Backpack, I'ma Run These Streets"

UPDATE #2: The video thought to be a playful Kendrick Lamar response to Meek Mill this week is confirmed to be several month-old joke between friends.

Last year, Meek Mill and Kendrick Lamar both appeared on "Power Circle," from Maybach Music Group's Self Made Vol. 2 compilation. This week, Kendrick's verse on Big Sean's "Control (HOF)" mentioned Meek Mill in his controversial bars claiming reign over his Rap peers. K Dot rapped, "Pusha T, Meek Millz, A$AP Rocky, Drake, Big Sean, Jay Electron', Tyler, Mac Miller /
I got love for you all, but I'm tryna murder you niggas."

Hours after the song leaked, Meek Mill appeared on Power 99, in his hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvia. Host Mina SayWhat asked Meek's thoughts on the verse. "He's not comin' at him in a disrespectful way, he's comin' at him in a competitive way," said Meek, who compared it to sports. "It's like if me and my homie playin' basketball—I'ma tell you: I'ma dunk on you, I'ma spin off you, I'ma give you 30 points a night like Lebron [James]. I'm pretty sure [NBA players] hang around each other in the club and all that, but [still trash talk competitively]."

Meek said that his battle with a gold-selling (nearly platinum) peer is quite different from the local battles he's been involved with throughout his career. "People get it misunderstood. [On] Philly diss records, you don't even know a person, [and you saying] you're gonna blow they head off, shoot your mom with you see you. On some Rap stuff, you're like, 'Aight, bet. Put your vest on, 'cause doin' some shots too, havin' fun with it.' That's what Hip Hop about."

The former Grand Hustle Records artist did imply that he plans on responding to Kendrick. Unclear whether speaking to Kendrick's Black Hippy quartet with Jay Rock, ScHoolboy Q and Ab-Soul or just K-Dot, Mill stated, "I'ma tell y'all: y'all what y'all run; I run the streets." To the Philly emcee, he's the king of his own place in Hip Hop. "I'm in a lane by myself. I'm the only [one] that's lyrically spittin' some street music and gettin' money. Kendrick [Lamar and Black Hippy], I'ma tell 'em in a rap: y'all can run that backpack, I'ma run these streets." Backpack refers to a style of lyrical Hip Hop and sampling popular in the 1990s. Meek stressed that this competition is purely amicable. "We gonna have fun with it; get money. Hip Hop needed that."

(August 14)

UPDATE: Hours after Meek Mill's Power 99 interview comments circulated, Kendrick Lamar is believed to have had a laugh of his own. In a brief Vine video added to YouTube on August 15, Kendrick appears on a four-wheeler, a street-vehicle popular with Meek Mill since his early days as a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania street rapper.

Kendrick pulls up, tells the camera "Meek Mills, huh?," calling the rapper by a name he used on early mixtapes and late 2000s recordings. Then after yelling, Kendrick pulls away, and does donut spins with the quad.

UPDATE #2: VladTV.com confirms the video was made a few months ago, and is not a direct response.

      Drake is lyrically capable, but doesn't use it. He is successful and has more hits because he isn't controversial. He toes the line and really has nothing to say when it comes down to representing the lifestyle, culture, and people that support him. He is the poster boy of self promotion, and excluding himself from those he wants money from for it. That's the fact. There aren't any controversial hip hop artists on the charts, and it ain't by accident.

    "Who the fuck cares about the streets anymore in 2013?

I saw a dude driving down the street playing an old Dre song. That's my point. People in the streets/everyday life don't listen to that sleepy shit. I like some of Drake's music, but he's got sleepy shit too, and nobody bumps that.

      Drake is so "hot" because he appeals to young teenage girls. They buy music legitimately and go to concerts in major arenas with their parents. Does he deserve praise for successfully targeting this market? Sure, but no more than Lady Gaga, Avril Lavigne, or Miley Cyrus. One thing is for sure; if you go into a room full of well read, true hip-hop fans or better yet, professional critics, you can expect to get laughed at with that diatribe.

    • nope

      1)Drake worships Lil Wayne. 2)Drake is also an RnB artist. 3)Mariah Carey gets more diva money than Drake. Look it up. 4)Babies get the most likes on youtube videos. Look it up. 5) If Drake doesn't develop another platform of income, he will not last long enough to have more than any of hip hop's moguls. 6)Drake is specifically made and designed for hip hop nerds.Look it up. All you lovers that claim Drake is the greatest, stop voicing opinions and mistaking them for facts! LOL!!!

      "There's obviously an organization of no taste buying consumers who are lapping this sleepy shit up" No. Those no-taste buying consumers are buying YMCMB/MMG's shit. Kendrick's album is far from sleepy. "just because it went platinum doesn't mean it's in heavy rotation on the streets." Who the fuck cares about the streets anymore in 2013? They don't even buy records, they just download them off the internet. Those same streets have terrible music taste as they listen to trash like Chief Keef, Gucci Mane, Future, Yo Gotti, etc. Kendrick don't care about the streets. Like other rappers, he wants to be bigger than that. Why appeal to a bunch of bum hoodlums living in the projects on food stamps when you can appeal to a more diverse audience just like Jay, Kanye, Eminem, Wayne, etc.?

AND BY THE WAY, I'M A FAN OF BOTH, I HATED KENDRICK BACK THEN, BUT HE GOT SOME GOOD INTERVIEWS AND OPINION WHICH CHANGED MY MIND. BUT THIS CONTROL SONG IS TOO MUCH OVERHYPED AND IT WAS NOT NECESSARY TO MENTION THAT NAMES. MOST OF THEM HELPED KENDICK WITH BUILDING UP HIS HYPE.

    This dumbass would say that.. do you know anyone who "runs" the streets past 35?? Times up garbage man!

      Y'all are idiots. When you dealing with a street nigga what music you think he's gonna play? I'm a Boss, Tupac Back and Levels or Money Trees, Swimming Pools and Sing about Me??? That what he means.

  • A-Game

    Way to exclude yourself from the battle royale Meek. He talking this bullshit because he knows he can't keep up lyrically with Kendrick. So when he says "you can run that backpack" it's all because he knows he can't compete.

    Compton isn't "the street"...?

    To me Kendrick is more street then Meek so his point is just a cop out to me.

    SMH! More excuses! Lupe Bodied Him self and Joell Ortiz and King Los roasted Kendrick competitively! Stop tweeting and start rapping more!

    • benben

      AMEN!!! I am huge K. Dot fan but I won't lie he got killed by Ortiz, Lupe, and Cassidy. I'm not sure about Los though, but thanks to him anyway I have heard about Los and listent to more of his music.

  • gnigga_pleeze

    it pisses me off that black people admire people who say ignorant shit like this. he's rich he can stop being in the streets, and probably DID stop, but he sets the example that bein in the streets is cool.

      Meek you a coward. If this what you do...really what you do in streets when called out??? he aint asking you to go to war all he want is Meeks next jam should be called "look the other way" on his new 'dream dodgers' mixtape. I wouldnt buy this foo cassette!

    "ross flopped too compared to my niccas kendrick, j cole, young jeezy, jay hova and kanyeezy" Ross's resume shits all over Kenwack's. Nobody's bumpin this female sounding queen's pussy songs, yet every club or bar you go someone is playing Ross and the crowds are loving it.

  • Anonymous

    "i guarantee kendricks album made 4 times as much as meeks did" Meek has jumped on other people's albums, and his exposure is 10x that of Kenwack who got his phony plaque even though we all know he didn't physically sell 1 mill.

    • Anonymous

      damn quoteman you got a lot of hate in you everyone gets their platinum records before they sell a million doesnt change the fact that he will have sold a million by the end of this month! what "kenwack" was able to accomplish in 9 months Ross hasn't been able to do in 9 years!

    • Anonymous

      And all of those other people's album's don't sell shit and his exposure doesn't help his record sales.

    Really!? cause that verse that Kendrick murdered Meek on seemed way more "street" then that lame shit he was talking. It's funny how dude claims he has so much money but yet isn't recouping the money spent on him from his own label. I use to like meek but your talk is bigger then your skills & your pockets bruh.

    Meek mill running this game right now. He went platinum 1st week and will sell even more with his second album. Great flow and so much better lyricalism than K Dot.

      Kendrick ain't running shit. Meek mill is running this muthafucking game. Meek mill sold 1.6 million 1st week and more than 3 million total. His next album will do even better and Kendrick sounds like a girl when rapping. I went to one of his shows to see why Kendrick is known at all and I saw Kendrick making out with the 3 other members of black hippy.

    • Anonymous

      You got it wrong. Meek ain't running shit. His debut only sold 160k 1st week and sold more than 300k total. His next album will bomb hard. He has a wack flow; Kendrick is lyrically better than Meek's yelling ass.
