Beastie Boy Mike D Discusses Meek Mill and Drake Feud

(Radio.com) On the latest episode of the Play.It podcast I Am Rapaort, host Michael Rapaport interviews Michael Diamond, aka Mike D of the Beastie Boys in a freewheeling, nearly two-hour conversation that was recorded in front of an audience of 200 at the Sonos studio in Los Angeles.

Lots was discussed, including men's health, pork rinds and the changing face of New York City. Rapaport and Mike D also discussed the already much-discussed Drake vs. Meek Mill beef.

While Rapaport seemed to have a negative attitude about the state of hip-hop today, Mike D said, "I like Drake! When was the last time someone made a diss record that was like, a top ten pop record? I have a lot of love for Drake coming out with a diss record."

Rapaport countered, "Would you call that a diss record or a water gun fight record?" Mike D responded, "Come on! 'Hit 'em with the prenup'?" Diamond was referencing Drake's "Back To Back Freestyle" where he raps, "And shout to all my boss bitches wifin' n--s! / Make sure you hit 'em with the prenup / Then tell that man to ease up," a reference to Meek's girlfriend Nicki Minaj, who Mill was opening for on tour this summer.

"He hit hard, and he didn't tread lightly," he said, quoting more "Back to Back" lyrics: "'Is this a world tour, or is this your girl's tour?'"

"This is real talk!" he continued. "If someone came at me with that, I don't know what I'd do!" Read more and listen to the entire episode here.
