The Philadelphia MC appeared on MTV’s RapFix Live on Wednesday (June 28) to discuss his alleged involvement in the brawl at the Club W.i.P., whtich left several people injured.
“I hollered at Chris Brown immediately, I talked to Drake immediately,” Mill said. “I don’t be on no negative vibes, man… We blessed, we get money, we rich and leave it at that.”
Early on, Mill received a barrage of negative press for being at the center of the fight. But Mill maintained his neutrality and Brown backed up Mill, who at the time was partying with Drake.
“Me and @MeekMill ain’t on that bulls—. Real respect Real,” Brown tweeted.
Likewise, Mill dismissed any notion of a Twitter beef, or real friction, with the dancing superstar.
“Twitter don’t count in real life, I tweet anything,” he said. “I try not to disrespect nobody on Twitter, no artists or anybody, period.”
The Maybach Music member chalked up the controversy to his rising profile on the hip-hop landscape.
“I don’t really be having those controversies like that, man. It’s just that the more hotter you get, they start talkin’. People fight in the club every week, I just be there,” he said. “The name’s gettin’ a little bigger, I guess they startin’ to mention me now. I’ve never been mentioned on none of those blogs or none of those shows or whatever, but things must be goin’ well over there.”
Meek Mill can currently be heard on the Maybach Music Group compilation Self Made Vol. 2. —Keith Murphy, CBS Local
