Why do we like this?

Anyone with even a passing interest in hip-hop would be well aware of the current beef between Drake and Meek Mill. For the uninitiated, Meek called out Drake for using a ghost writer on their collaboration, "R.I.C.O.," and after he continued to throw shots via Twitter and Instagram, Drizzy finally responded over the weekend with "Charged Up." 

As you'd expect from a Drake diss record, "Charged Up" is fairly understated. There's no aggressive posturing or death threats. Meek doesn't even get mentioned by name, but the track is full of subliminal messages, including talk of his rumoured relationship with Nicki Minaj. 

Beef aside, this is a solid track lyrical, but production-wise is where the real fire's at. Much like the lyrical content, Mannish and Noah "40" Shebib create a low key beat that cuts like ice, creeping slowly as the track flows.

Whoever's side you're on (if the entire thing isn't staged), the one thing we all know is Drake at least wrote this one.
