Wale Posts Heartfelt Note to Meek Mill After Past Conflict

at 2:57 pm | By

Meek Mill and Wale have had some rough patches throughout the course of their relationship, but a recent Instagram post made by Wale showed that his brotherly love was stronger than any pettiness that may have existed between him and the Philadelphia native.

On April 11, Wale posted a picture of him and his MMG label-mate Meek Mill with a heartfelt caption, showing his solidarity for his incarcerated friend. Currently, Meek Mill is being held on charges of parole violation after facing a host of legal issues. You can read up on the details of his case here, and also see the latest update on the case as well. Check out Wale’s post below:

Spoke to my dawg for grip Yesterday … it’s funny how nobody knows how close we are or what we been through. It’s really deeper than rap . We look back and laugh at the dumb shyt and we welcome the endless possibilities of our future with open arms . The silver lining in this fucked up situation is the clarity and wisdom he has gained. The silver lining for me is realizing what(or who) is real. I the end there barely is a silver lining in such an unjust situation but the conversation we’ve been having have inspired me on levels I deemed unattainable at one point. I’m grateful for the ups and downs because God /Universe will bless you directly and indirectly . Ill see u real soon my brova. Ps. I always feel weird about saying “free____” because the body can be captured but the mind can remain elusive when there is clarity.

While there’s been nothing to suggest that Meek and Wale have had any kind of falling out as of late, they have had a bit of documented static back in 2014 and 2015. It all seemed to have started when Meek lashed out at Wale for not tweeting in support of his then-upcoming album, Dreams Worth More Than Money. See the tweet for yourself below.


Wale responded to Meek pretty passively, explaining in a long Instagram post that he doesn’t move in the same way that a lot of rappers in the game do as a defense for why he didn’t give Meek the shout-out. Here’s the beginning portion of the caption of his now-deleted Instagram post:

“Few weeks ago. (7w) I posted this .but ok. Movin along . My Avi always changed when it’s THAT time .. Ok that’s not enough y’all see ‘razor ramon ‘ post on his no. But I don’t care.. I wrote a long ass post day before his single dropped .. Mariah record dropped nobody said a word I didn’t care .. I still don’t… I carry myself with confidence and humility ., I always try to have a lighter side to MMG.. Cuz I understand I don’t ‘fit the mold’ so if I’m tryna spruce an interview up to show that we not tryn be “serious tough guys” on the red carpet Or try to be a bit more engaging to broaden our audience forgive me . I never wanted anybody to think we take ourselves THAT serious. (Were rappers )I don’t need to take anybody shine.. Or hate on anybody.”

Shortly after the first sparks of friction flew, MMG Bawse Rick Ross told Bullett that he spoke to both rappers on the phone to check in. Ross said what went down was nothing more than a couple of “little brotherly jabs”. He tells the publication that the three of them drove to their first video set together, and how he felt they all were at the bottom at the time they first linked up. Ross credits that experience to the solidified kinship they all share.

Their conflict reignited in October 2015 when Wale made a visit to the Breakfast Club. On the show, Wale said that he felt like Meek brought “a pencil to a gun fight” in his rap beef with Drake, and that Meek tried to “paper cut him to death”.


It didn’t take long for Meek retaliate, launching into an attack on Wale through Instagram. Wale made his own response over Twitter, but both posts have since been deleted. Rick Ross stepped in again to make a second announcement of reconciliation in the same month, and that’s been the end of the public jabs for a couple years.

Still, Wale brings it up again in his latest post in support of Meek Mill, if for no other reason than to prove all beef has been squashed. Towards the end of Wale’s caption, he mentions “Ill see u real soon my brova”. Maybe it’s wishful thinking, but on the other hand, perhaps Wale knows something that the rest of us don’t about Meek Mill’s current legal situation. Stay tuned for Meek Mill updates.
