WWE responds to Meek Mill using theme song in diss track

If you haven’t been living under a rock under the last week or so, you have probably heard about the beef between rappers Drake and Meek Mill. Early this week, Meek Mill released a diss track in response to Drake’s “Back-to-Back” called “Wanna Know.” After that track was dropped, people began to catch on to a familiar sample used on the track.

Mill had used a sample from WWE superstar The Undertaker’s theme song. It did not take long for people to catch on and start talking about it all over Twitter.

Complex reached out to WWE and apparently, they weren’t too happy about somebody using a piece of their property. The theme song was originally created by longtime WWE composer Jim Johnston.

“WWE takes its intellectual property rights very seriously,” the WWE statement said, “and we are looking into the matter.”

Here’s Meek Mill’s “Wanna Know.”

And in comparison, here is The Undertaker’s theme song.

Because the track is not currently for sale, Mill is not benefiting nor making money. Despite that, WWE doesn’t seem to be taking any chances with Mill.
