The Drake and Meek Mill feud has all but burnt out, but the fumes are still lingering and causing some real damage.

According to a report by Philly.com, compiled data by TickPick (a service similar to StubHub) suggests that Meek Mill's lost battle in is beef with Drake has negatively affected ticket sales for Mill's joint tour with Nicki Minaj.

From the time that Meek Mill called Drake out on Twitter, Drake dropped his two Meek Mill diss tracks, and Mill responded with this musical abortion, ticket prices for the Pinkprint tour have steadily and dramatically decreased, a clear sign that less people were purchasing them. On July 20 the average ticket for the tour was $179, but this number plummeted to $148 by the time Drake's OVO Fest came around and most of the back and forth drama had gone down.

To help show that this decrease is not a result of a dip in the market as a whole, Philly.com provided another graph showing the changes in price over the same period of time for Sam Smith's coinciding tour.

Over that same period, Sam Smith ticket prices only dropped $10, compared with Nicki Manaj / Meek Mill's $31 plunge.

Call it a coincidence, but seeing as how terrible Meek Mill's diss track was and how riled up this whole drama has made hip hop fans, it seems like a good bet that Drake's victory had a very real impact.
