Meek Mill and Tory Lanez got into it.
What started as a celebratory moment turned into Instagram beef as the two exchanged some heated words. It all started with Meek posting a photo of the Nelson Mandela Change Maker Award, which he received from the PTTOW! organization.
“Blessings.. I got ‘the Nelson Mandela humanitarian award’ Thankyou Rip to the great Nelson Mandela,” he wrote.
In his caption, he also quoted some lyrics. “I ain’t grow up playing ball / I had a Smith and Western / Because where I’m from it’s very hard to turn 27.”
Tory Lanez appeared in the comments to correct his spelling of gun manufacturer Smith and Western to Smith and Wesson, which only angered Meek.
“It’s called ‘Meek Flow’ say congrats or something weirdo lol,” responded the Dream Chasers rapper.

Tory clapped back by taking his own shots: “It wasn’t that deep … just ain’t want u to look dumb. congrats tho bozo.”
“Stand tall Tory,” replied Meek before calling out his “Litty” collaborator. “It’s kinda of deep you tryna help me wit my spelling and you know for a fact I don’t f**k wit you right now.”
He continued, “If y’all Guys really rich why y’all acting like we cool on the net And you know we not do you … and stay out of street business when we talking about them blowers.”
After receiving the Nelson Mandela Change Maker Award, which is awarded to those who are “carrying out Nelson Mandela’s legacy” through activism, Meek dropped his new video for “Mandela Freestyle.”
“And you can’t label me a rapper ’cause I’m different, kid / And the only difference is I’m really making differences,” he raps in the clip, which highlights his criminal justice reform efforts.
