New York, NY - 

Michael Rapaport called into Sway In The Morning where he addressed his recent Twitter war with Meek Mill. Throughout his conversation with co-hosts Sway Calloway and Heather B, Rapaport expressed his regret and admitted “trash” wasn’t the right word to describe the Philly rap star.

“I should not have used that word,” he said. “He’s absolutely not a trash rapper. I shouldn’t use that word. It was wrong and it wasn’t the right word. He’s not a trash rapper. I can’t say it and I wish I could take that word back. I’m harsh with my Hip Hop opinions and it’s the wrong word. It’s just not valid, it’s not true and it’s not reasonable. It was a stupid word to use.

“The thing that led me to carry on is these so called Hip Hop bloggers, these culture critics, what are the four elements of Hip Hop? No where in the elements of Hip Hop is there anything about a blogger or a fucking culture critics … listen, these mother fuckers … and all this culture vulture shit. I’ll quote the great Mantronix, ‘It’s for black, Puerto Ricans and the white people, too.’ This is an inclusive music.”

Elsewhere in the conversation, the Beats, Rhymes & Life director brought up the old battle between Drake and Meek and said he was “rooting” for Meek to bury the 6 God in a “battle form.”

Of course, Drake and Meek have since made peace so Sway was puzzled by his obsession with it.

Watch it all unfold above.

It’s a well known fact actor Michael Rapaport doesn’t hold back when it comes to his commentary on the culture. During a recent Twitter tirade, the Beats, Rhymes & Life director set his sights on Meek Mill following this weekend’s performance at the NBA All-Star game.

“Meek Mill, great story,” he tweeted. “Great look. Trash rapper. Sorry. Meek Mill have a hearing problem? Because he rhymes off the actual beat on everything he’s on. Literally off the beat, like NoFlow.”

Meek caught wind of Rapaport’s comments and called him out for talking big online but asking the Philly-bred rapper for a photo in person.

“Aye @michaelrapaport don’t ever use the word trash when you speaking on nothing from our culture unless you tryna get trashed,” he wrote. “#2 who gave you authorization to be speaking on us? #3 what you charging now? Last time I seen you you wanted a selfie. be great tho on the net.”

Rapaport also claimed Meek wasn’t even in the Top 20 when it came to the best Philly rappers. At the same time, Rapaport roped Drake into his commentary and told his 359,000 followers Meek essentially blew his chance to smoke Drake during their 2015 war of words.

“Meek Mill isn’t even a top 20 Rapper from Philadelphia & you guys are mad at me?” he tweeted. “You make 300 songs 5 will be OK. #MeekMill.”

He continued, “Meek Mill had a chance to prove he was a dope Rapper,” he said. “And then came DRAKE. That was a moment to stand tall as a RAPPER. Like I said, great story, great look probably gonna do some positive stuff, none of that means you’re a DOPE MC. Dragged by Drake?”

Although Meek misspelled Rapaport’s name in his tweet, Rapaport will likely fire back. It’s just a matter of time.
