RocNation producer Jahlil Beats speaks to Scoop B Radio’s Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson and explains creating Meek Mill’s “Wanna Know” Drake Diss. Press Play Below To Listen!
Two years ago, Meek Mill and Drake engulfed in a feud that juxtapositioned between social media and digital music all because Meek Mill claimed that the Toronto native has a ghostwriter.
As a result, Drake released “Back To Back,” which became a thing and Meek Mill responded with “Wanna Know.”
Meek Mill’s Wanna Know
“Wanna Know” didn’t have the same response that “Back To Back” garnered, but its production was VERY underrated.
In fact, the instrumental, produced by Jahlil Beats, samples wrestling legend The Undertaker’s entrance music.
“With the I Wanna Know record it was like, Meek got a million of my beats like we love this, and this is what we’re in this for,” Jahlil Beats told Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson on the Scoop B Radio Podcast.
“We came up in an era where Beans and Jadakiss were battling each other and Nas and HOV, D-Block vs Roc-A-Fella, Major Figures vs State Property that’s just where we come from. That’s how Meek came up, so this is really what we’re in it for, so I was hype and I just was telling him like: ‘yo I got this beat that I sampled The Undertaker on.’ And he took it and did what he did with it. With all the anticipation I just felt like sampling something like that would be like a movie entrance and it came from left field. I don’t think people ever imagined that he would come back to a beat like that, so I knew it would throw people off.”
After the release, the WWE made it know that they weren’t pleased with its usage telling TMZ:
“WWE takes its intellectual property rights very seriously, and we’re looking into the matter.”

Meanwhile, Jahlil Beats broke down the day that he created the beat.
“Yeah, I did it ASAP,” Jahlil Beats told Scoop B Radio.
“Because I had talked to him on FaceTime and I was just like: ‘ok I’m going to put some shit together for you and send it to you tonight and you just do what you do.’ We were excited man because this is what it’s all about, the beef; it’s not what everybody thinks it is, this is hip-hop.”
Added Jahlil Beats:
“Meek wants the top spot just like everybody else does. He wants the top spot period even if it was Jay-Z. Anybody that knows Meek Mill knows that he’s a competitive dude.”
