Celebrity Slam - Fresh beef!

We’ve had an interesting run over the last few weeks here at Celebrity Slam. We’ve strayed a bit from the standard fare in this space, opting instead for memorial postings and some next-level weirdness like Lil Uzi Vert jamming a diamond into his head. It wasn’t a conscious choice – we just go where the famous people take us.

Happily, we have a couple of hip-hop dudes getting into it in Miami, allowing us to return to our Celebrity Slam roots and digging into some delicious beef.

This time, we’re looking at a boiling over in a longstanding conflict between Meek Mill and Tekashi 6ix9ine (that name will never not be ridiculous to type). The two have long had it in for each other, so when they crossed paths this weekend, sparks were bound to fly.

It all went down early Sunday morning – Happy Valentine’s Day! – at KOMODO in Miami. Meek was getting in his car, getting ready to leave, when Tekashi popped up and started jawing. Meek fired back with his own verbal ripostes and the two looked to be on the verge of getting into it physically. Their respective security teams held them back as they shouted insults at one another.

(This included Tekashi yelling stuff about Meek working with cops, which is pretty hilarious when you take into account 6ix9ine’s well-documented history of snitching.)

Of course, even after they were out of one another’s presence, the argument continued via social media, with Tekashi posting (in all caps, natch) stuff like “STOP LETTING THESE RAPPERS LIE TO YOU! THEY TO [sic] TOUGH FOR SECURITY!” before continuing to claim Meek Mill’s connection with the police.

For his part, Meek basically just posted, well … you know what? I can’t do his words – relayed via a series of tweets – justice. Here they come, ready or not:

“69 waited out side the club for me they tryna get usssssss wtf ... We did not run into eachother I was getting in my car he just popped out ....we almost was smoking on that 69 pack for the love of a viral moment ..... he tryna get something locked up no cap lol”

And…

“The feds sent him to take me out wtf. [I] had to spit on him so he retreated lol he really waited outside the club for me. I thought I was dreaming wtf we almost smoked him lol he posed a lil threat popping up in the parking lot waiting for me.”

The beef between the two has been ongoing since Meek took Tekashi to task for cooperating with the FBI and helping to get members of the Nine Trey Bloods gang locked up.

That’s what we’re talking about! Some nice sizzling hip-hop beef! We here at Celebrity Slam love pointing out the ridiculousness of these sorts of hold-me-back bouts. Obviously, neither of these dudes ACTUALLY wants to throw hands, because if they did, they would have done it already. It’s all about the talk, which is great – talk is cheap, after all!

First and foremost, we do need to talk about the incredible irony of Tekashi going after Meek with accusations of working with cops. Look, while we don’t claim to be experts in the vagaries of the hip-hop world, the reality is that we know exactly two things about Tekashi 6ix9ine – he has an unfortunate name and he absolutely snitched to keep himself out of jail. For him to go after someone else with those sorts of accusations is kind of laughable.

It only gets funnier when you take into account the fact that Meek Mill has actually done time on a couple of different occasions (though that’s a whole other thing – the need for prison reform is real).

It seems pretty obvious that Tekashi is trying to find his way back into the spotlight. These sorts of conflicts are bread-and-butter for a guy trying to reestablish his credibility. Picking a fight with Meek – a guy who has already commented on his snitchery – makes sense. For his part, Meek probably should just walk away; he’s got a lot more to lose. Of course, walking away isn’t what any of these dudes do.

Ultimately, it just shows that Tekashi 6ix9ine has learned the lesson taught by America’s current state of affairs – loudly accuse others of doing what you yourself do.
