Rick Ross Responds To Meek Mill/Wale Beef On Snapchat
Meek Mill was embroiled in some light beef with Wale yesterday, after he heard the comments Wale made during his Breakfast Club interview on the subject of Meek's beef with Drake. Meek's twitter fingers got the best of him, as he took to Instagram to write a long-winded post about Wale and claim he's not MMG. Wale gave a rather light-hearted response on twitter, and we're expecting this will fizzle out rather quickly, as Meek has already deleted the incriminating IG post. Nonetheless, when Rick Ross caught wind of the back-and-forth, he responded via Snapchat.
