Meek Mill

Drake Diss Song TRASHED

More than a Little Meek

7/31/2015 6:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Meek Mill is getting annihilated on social media for what most people think is a tepid, lame and wack response to Drake.

Drake's diss track was epic, basically calling Meek Nicki Minaj's bitch. Meek was universally trashed for his impotent response.

0731-meek-mill-drake-diss-soundcloud-dreamchasers-01Meek had a few good lines in "Wanna Know" ... like, "N****s writing for you cause you know you never did s***" ... but even the biggest Meek fan would have to admit, Drake is winning this war.

Things are so bad for Meek, he's been trolled by a fast food chain. Whataburger, popular in the southern part of the country, tweeted, "Meek Mill take it from us- if you gonna serve beef serve it high quality."

0731-subasset-whataburger-twitterEven Toronto Councillor Norm Kelly got in on the action, writing, "This is the reason people hire ghostwriters. #WeDidntWannaKnow."

Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Jennings piled on as well ... saying he'd pay money if Meek would stop.

Drake posted a response to the song as well ... just a photo of him laughing hysterically. 

Checkmate.

Travis Tritt

Frantic 911 Call ...

'There's Flames Everywhere!!'

EXCLUSIVE

Travis Tritt can still spark fire with the ladies ... even in the middle of an emergency.

TMZ obtained the 911 call made by Tritt's 16-year-old son, Tristan, during a fire that broke out at the singer's Georgia home on Wednesday. During the call Tristan says, "Travis Tritt's house right now, is on fire." He continues, "There's flames everywhere."

The best part? ... Around the 45 second mark, you can hear the starstruck dispatcher whisper, "It's Travis Tritt's house!" to a co-worker.

TMZ broke the story ... emergency vehicles responded to the Georgia home after a pool house and playground caught fire ... thankfully nobody was injured. 

The cause of the blaze is still under investigation.

Mariah Carey

I Used Airbnb ...

For My Sick Malibu Rental

7/30/2015 10:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0730_mariah_carey_pad_main_launchMariah Carey has proven Airbnb isn’t just for 20-year-old hipsters traveling on the cheap, but not every traveler on the Internet lodging site can afford a $10,000/night house in Malibu.

We're told Mimi used the site to rent out an awesome seaside home on Carbon Beach from movie producer Michael Lambert while she’s back in the L.A. area.

The 3,764 sq. ft. digs includes 4 beds and 4 baths, a master suite that spans the entire second floor, and a detached guest house.

Mariah will no doubt use the beach house to catch some rays until she heads out to the Holy Land for her Tel Aviv concert in August.

Electric Zoo festivalgoers who dropped $439 for a VIP wristband have nothing on Instagram kingpin Dan Bilzerian ... because he’s taking VIP to a new stage ... literally.  

Bilzerian dropped $654,400 on his Amex Black card for a VIP deck at New York's Electric Zoo … one of America’s premier dance music festivals. 

We’re told this isn't your average VIP experience … Electric Zoo is building out a deck for Bilzerian with tables that will hold up to 200 of the playboy’s guests. Most of the bill is liquor-related … which will total up to $500k. 

The sweetest part of the deal … the personal firework/pyro controller that he’ll be able to launch whenever he’s feeling that epic techno build to headliners Above & Beyond and Chemical Brothers

In other words … it’s good to be friends with Bilzerian.

Travis Tritt is singing his own song – it's a great day to be alive – because his Powder Springs, Georgia home just went up in flames. 

Firefighters responded to a 911 call from Tritt’s mother-in-law, who returned from the grocery store to an inferno. The crazy thing ... we’re told Tritt was in the main house but had no idea there was a raging fire in his backyard. 

0729-travis-tritt-SUB-TMZ-01The fire engulfed the pool house and playground. We’re told Tritt took a hose and tried holding the flames at bay until firefighters arrived. 

No one was hurt. It looks like it was weather-related .... temps have been in the high 90s. 

Tritt tells TMZ, "I would like to thank everyone for the concern earlier this afternoon."

Joe Carter

I'm Honored to Be In Drake Beef

... My Kid Thinks I'm Cool!

7/29/2015 11:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0729-carter-drake-getty-tmz-01MLB legend Joe Carter says he's "honored" to have been injected into the Drake vs. Meek Mill feud -- saying it's AWESOME that Drake used his image to go after Meek because "My kids feel I'm legit now."

Backstory -- Drake used an ICONIC image of Carter's Game 6 walk off homerun that lifted the Toronto Blue Jays over the Philadelphia Phillies back in 1993 as the cover art to his new diss track against Meek. 

0729-sub-swipe-drake-soundcloud-01FYI, Drake is from Toronto, Meek is from Philly -- so, you can see why Drake decided to use the pic to reinforce his anti-Meek message.  

As for Joe -- he LOVES IT -- telling TMZ Sports, "My Twitter's been blowing up! It put my name back in the mix!"

He adds, "I had no idea [Drake was going to use that photo] ... I'm honored that he used it."

Carter tells us he knows Drake and has seen him around Toronto several times over the years -- and says Drake is a great ambassador for the city, which Joe considers his 2nd home.

But the best part for Joe -- "My 25-year-old son thinks I'm cool now."

Drake is going after Meek Mill and this time with a vengeance, ripping on his manhood for being girlfriend Nicki Minaj's opening act.

The song -- titled "Back to Back" -- is actually his second diss song against Meek, but this one is way more vicious. In it, Drake raps ...

Is that a world tour or your girl's tour?
I know that you gotta be a thug for her
This ain't what she meant
when she told you to open up more

Drake also makes fun of Meek for not being the breadwinner in the relationship ... 

Shout-out to all my boss bitches wifin' n****s
Make sure you hit 'em with the prenup

And how's this for ironic ... Meek Mill was booed when he came out onstage during Tuesday night's show with Nicki because he was 90 minutes late. The show was in ... Toronto.

Drake 2, Meek 0.

Indiana Mayor

I'm Cool With 2 Chainz ...

He Doesn't Attract Bad People Like Chief Keef

7/28/2015 4:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0728_Mayor-Tom_2chainz_twitterThe Indiana mayor who shut down Chief Keef's concert over the weekend went and mugged for the camera with rapper 2 Chainz ... because he says Chainz is all about having a good time while Keef attracts a bad element.

Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott tells us he pulled the plug on Keef's non-live, hologram performance Saturday night because of Keef's "anti-cop, pro-gang" lyrics.

As for why McDermott took a pic 2 days later with 2 Chainz ... he says the rapper's lyrics are innocuous and the crowds are more chill. Perhaps McDermott hasn't heard the song, "We Own It," in which 2C raps ...

We got big guns, been graduated from knives
It's the day in the life and I'm ready to ride

Might be time to update that playlist.
