Sounds like Meek Mill is getting a taste of his own medicine. 😳

Every hip-hop fan remembers when Meek infamously accused Drake of using a ghostwriter back in July 2015, ultimately leading to Drizzy's standout diss track "Back To Back" that firmly established him as a force not to be messed with.

Though the two have since resolved their bad blood, the tables seem to have turned on Meek, as he was recently hit with a lawsuit claiming he stole the songs “Cold Hearted II” and “100 Summers” from a small Philadelphia record label called Dream Rich Entertainment.

According to a report from Bossip, Dream Rich is accusing Meek of copyright infringement for lifting the lyrics and titles of the two tracks and calling them his own on his last album, Championships.

Dream Rich says that it worked with a contracted songwriter in 2018 to create the songs, though Meek later gained access to the writer's lyrics and rerecorded them without permission.

Following a few failed attempts to "reason with Meek" about the alleged theft, the label is on the hunt for over $300,000 in damages from the 33-year-old and his label, Atlantic Records.

Meek's name has been included in a lot of online chatter this week. He recently exchanged jabs with Akademiks over Twitter after trying to cancel him for amplifying "a lot of beef that got people killed and hurt."

This move led Ak to write that Meek "can't cancel anyone" and inspired his verbal tirade against the Philly rapper on Wednesday night in which he said Meek is "a walking contradiction" for wanting to be a "street n***a one minute" but a "fighter for prison reform the next."

Akademiks' buddy 6ix9ine also joined the trolling in the comments section of the clip at hand. "Signed to a snitchhhh 🤣 but hates snitchesssss 🤣🤣🤣 how u do that??????????? Went to jail for bike tricks and was crying the whole 6 months 🤣," he wrote.

You think Meek will fire back?
