Born Aubrey Drake Graham, he first gained fame for his role as basketball player Jimmy Brooks on the TV series Degrassi, then went on to become a rap phenomenon after his album Thank Me Later went platinum in 2010.
Meek accused Drake of not writing his own material and claimed that his knowledge of this was the reason the Grammy winner didn't post about the album.
The online tirade led Drake to release the first of a series of diss tracks about his rap rival just days later.
Previously, Drake and Nicki had collaborated on several tracks together including Make Me Proud, Moment 4 Life, Champion, Only, Up All Night and Truffle Butter.
Nicki - whose real name is Onika Tanya Maraj - dumped Meek after an 'explosive fight' during her birthday getaway in Turks & Caicos in December.'She went nuts on him because he was hanging out with friends and not paying attention to her,' a source told TMZ.
He traveled between Memphis and Toronto quite often as a child, due to his parents' divorce.
His album Take Care popularized the phrase "YOLO," and the accompanying tour grossed over million in 2012.Lyrics in his track Back to Back poked fun at Meek for living in the shadow of Nicki's success, with the Canadian rapping: 'Is that a world tour or your girl's tour?' in reference to Meek's support slot on Nicki's tour.The One Dance hit-maker called the label's president, Mack Maine and asked: 'Why didn't you tell me the family is back?'A reunion was set up and Drake headed to Miami on January 12 to sit down with Nicki and Young Money's founder Lil Wayne.After the birthday girl lashed out on her beau for the lack of attention, Meek reportedly left the island without the Super Bass singer and that's when she ended the relationship.Meanwhile the beauty has been busy filming her latest Run Up music video alongside Major Lazer and Party Next Door.The beauty confirmed something is going on with singer Nas.She added, however, that she wants to stay 'celibate' for a year. Him coming to me was too forward.'Ellen said if you go to his house you can leave when you want.Another person I have a lot of love for.' However, while they were not as close as they once were, there appeared to be no animosity between them.Drizzy continued: 'She dealt with me how I would expect her to - with class. Unfortunately, we haven't spoke.'The feud between Drake and Meek began in July 2015, after the latter called out his former pal for not tweeting in support of his latest release.
