During the midst of the “beef” with Drake & Meek Mill, most hip hop fans were on full blown ignorant mode, thirsty for another shot from Drake and for some type of reply from Meek. It was during that moment, after Drake dropped “Back to Back” and before Meek came back in an underwhelming fashion with “Wanna Know” that Spurs David West had a realization that there is more important things going on.


Might sound like a bit of a stretch at first, taking lyrics from a rap feud and having them make you look at things differently but that’s what happened with West.

In the past, he had vented on twitter regarding different issues that affect our country and he sounds like someone who wants to do more than just type about it.

In an interview with the San Antonio Express-News, West confessed that one particular line on “Back to Back” really struck a chord with him.

The lyric: “… Trigger fingers turn to twitter fingers,” as Drake responded to a feud with another hip-hip artist, Meek Mill, who took to Twitter to express his dispute with the Canadian rapper.

Using the lyric to his own benefit, West said: “I don’t want to be that Twitter fingers type dude no more. Something about that (lyric) just…”

He also went on to say “Not take a step back. I’m not going to be typing, You want to ask me a question, you want to talk about something, talk to me.”
