    Whether he’s on screen, behind the mic, or on social media, Michael Rapaport loves a spicy hot take, especially when it comes to hip-hop. As a longtime fan of the genre — in 2011, he directed the excellent documentary Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest — Rapaport shares his two cents every chance he can empty his pocket.

    His latest target is Meek Mill.

    On Sunday, following the Philadelphia rapper’s performance at the NBA All-Star Game, Rapaport just couldn’t contain himself on Twitter. He called the guy a “trash rapper” and joked that he must have a hearing problem “because he rhymes off the actual beat on everything he’s on. Literally off the beat, like NoFlow.”

    Oh, it gets better. He joked that if Meek Mill made “300 songs, 5 will be OK,” and that he fumbled his chances of being a true rapper thanks to Drake. “Where I’m from, if you get dragged by DRAKE & don’t respond you’re & always will be WACK,” adding, “At least make it competitive. Re-Up. Something.”


    From there, he got even more hyperbolic, arguing that “Meek Mill isn’t even a top 20 Rapper from Philadelphia & you guys are mad at me?” Eventually, he even dragged his wife into the mix: “My Wife doesn’t agree with my opinions on #MeekMill either,” he said in faux frustration, “& I just told she can kiss my ass also.”
