Meek Mill had to hand over $100,000 (£78,400) to his former rap rival Drake after losing a ping pong bet shortly after publicly squashing their beef onstage.
The two stars began feuding in 2015, when Meek accused the “God’s Plan” hitmaker of using ghostwriters to pen his rhymes, but they have since made amends, and surprised fans by teaming up onstage in Boston, Massachusetts in September, as part of Drake’s “Aubrey and the Three Migos Tour”.
“We chopped it up onstage and did it out of the love,” Meek explained in a new interview with Apple Music’s Beats 1.
However, the get-together ended up costing him big after taking Drake on in a game of table tennis.
Meek previously admitted that at the height of their rap dispute, he was out of control, and in his Beats 1 chat, he recalls hitting his lowest point following his early 2017 split from Drake’s close pal Nicki Minaj.
“I was going through s**t at the time. I was caught up,” he explained. “I was getting high, going through media… public break-ups. I’ve got the biggest rap beef going on, and a lot of people not in my favour. So I’m not even in a good place.”
“I had to revamp myself and just get to the money.”
Meek’s career also ground to a halt in November 2017 after he was jailed for violating his probation relating to a 2008 incident. He was released in April, and has since been campaigning for criminal justice reform, while also preparing for his comeback album, “Championships”.
