Nicki Minaj splits with Meek Mill, and the Drake memes return with a vengeance
On Thursday, the “Anaconda” singer took to Twitter to confirm that she and hubby Meek Mill were no more after two years of dating. In the post, she wrote, “To confirm, yes I am single,” before wishing fans a blessed year.
To confirm, yes I am single. Focusing on my work & looking forward to sharing it with you guys really soon. Have a blessed New Year. Love u🎀

Obviously, the internet isn’t taking a knee and missing out on this opportunity to roast Meek Mill on levels of high heat for his epic loss.

Meek Mill is the ugly guy you give a chance and he forgets he’s ugly.

Soulja Boy and Meek Mill took an L to start off 2017. If Tyga can somehow take an L then 2017 might be the best year so far.

And it was inevitable that Drake was going to be dragged into this, especially considering his back-and-forth beef with the rapper. After a series of diss songs and social media feuds, Drake may have officially won the war.
Despite the Twitter chaos, Meek Mill’s been keeping a low profile. His single tweet addressed the idea of success with an inspirational quote:
Success belongs only to those who are willing to work harder than anyone else.

But the real success is the glorious resurgence of these Drake memes. We sincerely hope they’re here to stay.
