Hannibal Buress put the never-ending beef between Drake and Meek Mill into perspective on Wednesday’s episode of Why? by wandering around Beverly Hills and asking whether anybody even knew who either of the rappers are.
Largely, they did not. Of course, the residents of Beverly Hills are not typically known for their hot takes on hip-hop culture, but if a tree falls in a forest and no one knows that tree’s name, does its petty argument with a fellow tree even matter?
While one man knew of Meek Mill (“I think he’s sleeping with Nicki Minaj”), he could not name any of the rapper’s songs.
Drake, too, was surprisingly unknown to the residents of Beverly Hills shown on Why?, though one woman was close — kind of. “Is that like Drake and Josh? From Disney?”
And for what it’s worth, another woman — who seems like a genuine delight, perhaps because she is ignorant to the exciting but tiring world of hip-hop beef — has no problem with Meek’s allegation that Drake doesn’t write his own lyrics: “So what? Everybody steals everything. This is Beverly Hills!”
Well, that’s settled then. Drake and Meek, it’s time to bury the hatchet. Check out the clip below:
