The beef between Drake and Meek Mill got a little bit more interesting this morning after the Canadian superstar released a second diss track, “Back To Back,” aimed at the Philly spitter. In Drake’s cover art for his “Back To Back (Freestyle)” that was released today, the Canadian sensation took it back to 1993 by using the image of former Toronto Blue Jays baseball player Joe Carter celebrating his game-winning hit against the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 6 of the 1993 World Series. The hit earned the Blue Jays their second consecutive World Series championship ring (hence: back to back). But what’s most odd about Drake’s choice of artwork for “Back To Back” is that the Toronto Blue Jays are playing the Phillies tonight at the Roger Centre in Toronto.
As the beef between Meek and Drake heats up, so will the bats of the Phillies and Blue Jays tonight beginning at 7:30 p.m. EST. With that said, we gathered up the best playlists from Meek Mill and Drake for their respective home baseball teams and created the ultimate Blue Jays vs. Phillies playlist.
Ed. Note: We at XXL only have a working knowledge of the rules of baseball—much less how it’s going this season—but here’s our best shot.

At the turn of the century–maybe as late as 2006, when Nas dropped Hip Hop Is Dead…–your average rap fan from either coast might have lumped rappers from south of the Mason-Dixon line into one amorphous blob. But as the years tick by and rap music coverage becomes (slightly) less New York-centric, a funny thing is happening: rappers from different Southern cities are enjoying symbiotic relationships in a way they didn’t before, at least not on a mainstream level. Enter Young Dolph, a rising star out of Memphis who marries his hometown’s penchant for floating, technical flows to the vocal inflections and lyrical signifiers from Atlanta. Having churned out a steady stream of collaborations with some of today’s biggest names, Dolph is here now, one day after he promised, with a new mixtape, 16 Zips.
The 14-track set features contributions from T.I., Jadakiss, Slim Thug and Paul Wall, among others, and is a showcase of Dolph’s vocal dexterity. Production comes courtesy of Zaytoven, Drumma Boy, TM-88 and more. Stream 16 Zips here via LiveMixtapes. You can check out the tracklist below; note that “No Matter What” was the name of a single from T.I.’s 2008 album, Paper Trail.
