There’s beef in The 6ix, and it’s not just between the Argos and the Ticats!
By Joscelyn Longo
Rapper Drake has once again turned eyes to Toronto, following a public feud with fellow-rapper Meek Mill, who recently put Drake (and his Canadian hometown) on blast.
To retaliate against some heavy accusations, Drake answered Meek by sharing a freestyle earlier this week, which was followed up by a second diss-track entitled “Back to Back” which was released in the early hours of July 29th. While this isn’t out of the ordinary for rappers, what added extra fuel to the fire was the album art that Drake chose: a photo of Joe Carter following his walk-off home run in the 1993 World Series, when the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Philadelphia Phillies. Did I mention that Meek is originally from Philly?
It’s no shocker that Drake’s music makes appearances all over the league on practice, pregame, and workout playlists, so many of our players are reacting to the new rivalry — especially in Toronto, where the Argos have banned Meek Mills’ music from being played!

While we’re talking public feuds, check out this recent exchange between the Argos and the Ticats, leading up to their game on Monday!
If Drake were making a freestyle about their rivalry, what do you think his album art would look like?
Let us know at @CFL!
