It’s official! Drake and Meek Mill are friends again, or at the very least, are no longer beefing.

Meek, real name Robert Rihmeek Williams, was the special guest at the Boston stop of the Aubrey & the Three Migos Tour Saturday night.

The Philadelphia rapper was welcomed onstage by Drake, who told the audience at Boston’s TD Gardens: “We need more peace in the world, we need more love in the world, Meek Mill, that’s my brother.”

The display is their first public appearance together since their 2015 feud, which saw them exchange insults through social media and music.

The feud was ignited by Meek, who accused the “Hotline Bling” rapper of using a ghostwriter to write his verses.

The 31-year-old rapper also took issue with Drake for not promoting his album Dreams Worth More Than Money, on which Drake made a guest appearance. In response, Drake released two diss tracks aimed at Meek, “Charged Up” and the Grammy-nominated “Back to Back.”

The gap between the pair seemed to be closing during Meek’s high-profile incarceration in November last year for a probation violation.

During his Boy Meets World Tour, Drake, real name Aubrey Drake Graham, took a moment to acknowledge fans wearing “Free Meek Mill” shirts and cosigned the message by saying, “I see you got the ‘Free Meek Mill’ T-shirt. Free Meek Mill too man, for real. You right.”

Meek, who was released from prison in April of this year, said he had moved past any issues with Drake and was even open to collaborating again during an interview with Hot 97.

He said, “It’s possible. Anything is possible. I don’t have hate towards him, and I don’t believe he has hate towards me. When I was in that situation, I seen in the media he was like ‘free Meek Mill’ that’s when I was at my down point, when I didn’t have anything going on with music.”

After appearing onstage together, the newly reconciled artists played a game of ping-pong at the end of the show.

On Instagram, Drake shared a snap of the moment and shared how mending fences had given him “peace of mind.”

Seeing the two put an end to their issues means something to people.
