So Meek Mill did the unthinkable tonight, as he went ahead and dropped his second consecutive EP right after Drake had played new “Views from the 6” material live on OVO Sound Radio. What’s more, “4/4 Part 2” contains a Drake diss track against the OVO leader -- “War Pain,” the EP’s final track.

The track is certainly an improvement upon “Wanna Know,” and the shots here are much fiercer than those taken on Meek’s remix of Drake and Future’s “I’m Da Plug.” Dreamchasers rapper Omelly also features on the track, but for the most part, it’s Meek doing all the clapping.

Meek revisits his ghostwriting accusations with more firmness than ever before, and he calls Drake a fruitcake for his dance moves in the “Hotline Bling” video. He also rebukes the 6 God for hating on Toronto’s own Tory Lanez.

What’s most impressive, though, is that Meek seems to directly address lines heard on the Drake track that was released just minutes before “4/4 Part 2”: “And you claimin’ you Hov now? Why you state that shit?” -- a response to Drake rapping, “Used to wanna be on Roc-A-Fella / Then I turned into Jay” on “Summer Sixteen.”

He also threatens to snatch the OVO chain next time he sees one dangling in his vicinity.

What do y’all think? Who won the battle tonight?
