Meek Mill and Trey Songz are at odds over their good deeds.
On Tuesday, the R&B singer challenged the Philadelphia rapper to join the “Feed Your City Challenge” and provide meals to residents in his hometown. “I challenge my boy @meekmill to the #feedyourcitychallenge bull a young God in Philly. Let’s go!!!” wrote Trey.
After not receiving a response from Meek, Trey decided to leave a comment on one of Meek’s Instagram posts. “Take some of them bands and accept the #feedyourcitychallenge,” he commented on a photo of Meek holding a stack of cash.
But the prison reform advocate didn’t take kindly to being called out and defended himself, writing, “I donated like 2 mill this year where you at? Lol.” Meek went on to list his charitable deeds. “200k to Philadelphia schools … my phantom for less fortunate 400k …. and helped raised 50 mill for reform @treysongz dont try me like that.”
Trey shared Meek’s comments with his 12 million followers on Instagram, adding his own message: “So @meekmill apparently felt a way bout me challenging him to the #feedyourcitychallenge. He felt the need to tell me what he’s already done, hopefully not realizing I tapped on him because of how much I know he’s already doing for his community. That’s great you donated fam, that’s great you helping prison reform, that’s great you gave ya phantom. I’m simply trying to bring us together to further help our communities. You offended? Lol you got it!”
In response, Meek lashed out at Trey for telling him to donate. “Nah I didn’t don’t try to put me on the spot wit that sideways shit that’s not even no money like 4 racks … other artist telling artist to donate is dumb just handle ya business!” he said. “Don’t try to put me on the spot .. this behavior kinda of new artist don’t speaking on my money … coulda kept this in the comments bro I just ain’t feel your comment no big deal.”
They went back and forth, with Trey saying he tried to contact Meek directly to no avail. “@meekmill I hit ya phone, both numbers I got and I sent a dm. It’s a challenge ni**a. Same way I challenged Mustard, Fab, Trouble and they all accepted. We ain’t even sposta be at no kinda odds bout giving back. Shit goofy,” said Trigga.
Meek also took to Twitter to address his tiff with Trey. “Me and trey bro’s that lil 🤔 threw me off tho!” he tweeted.
Trey apologized and asked that they collaborate on the “Feed Your City Challenge” for Philly. “I do apologize if you felt slighted,” he said. “Can we do the challenge in Philly man? It will be huge.”
Bruh 🤦🏾♂️ 😂 emojis ain’t shit however I do apologize if you felt slighted. Can we do the challenge in Philly man? It will be huge https://t.co/wUsWz7ilni
I’m all for the empowerment & uplifting of one another & our communities. I’m man enough to acknowledge that the emoji could have stirred things the wrong way even though that wasn’t the intent. It was so powerful feeding my city, I just wanted to bring some of the guys along.
Meek wasn’t the only one who Trey asked to participate in the “Feed Your City Challenge.” He also called on Fabolous to help in Brooklyn, Trouble in Atlanta, and Mustard, who answered the call in L.A.
The “Feed Your City Challenge” was started by Ricky Davis, Tony Draper, and Pusha T as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Trey, who recently released his protest anthem “2020 Riots: How Many Times,” decided to give back by hosting Black Lives Matter Weekend in Richmond, Virginia in support of the movement. As part of the three-day event, he provided groceries and essential PPE supplies to 3,000 families and organized a bike ride for racial equality on Father’s Day.
