Drake took a bunch of shots at a bunch of people on his latest album ‘Her Loss’, a collaboration with 21 Savage.
No one was safe from the Canadian artist, with big-name artists catching the same heat as up-and-coming artists, and even the partner of a sporting legend being targeted in Drake’s lyrics.
Megan Thee Stallion
In the most controversial of his callouts in the album, Drake had a line in the song ‘Circo Loco’ that many fans believe implies Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion was lying about benig shot at by Tory Lanez in 2020:
“This b*tch lie ‘bout getting shots but she still a stallion.”
Lanez denies the accusations but is awaiting trial over the matter.
Some Twitter users believe the line is more about Megan not being truthful about receiving plastic surgery/body enhancements. However, Megan seems to think it’s about the shooting incident, taking to Twitter to respond to Drake.
“Stop using my shooting for clout… Since when tf is it cool to joke abt women getting shot !” she wrote before telling people that, once the truth is revealed, remember where people’s allegiances lay.
Another line in ‘Circo Loco’ calls back to Drake and Kanye’s long-term beef that was seemingly squashed in a 2021 benefit concert the two held together. However, the line implies that Drake, real name Aubrey Graham, only did the concert to satisfy the wishes of J.Prince - the founder of the record label ‘Rap-A-Lot’:
“Linking with the opps, b*tch, I did that for J. Prince/Bitch, I did it for the mob ties.”
Taking a break from spewing BS on his Twitter, Kanye brushed off the diss in a tweet, saying he’s done beefing and that he “love[s] Drake”.
Ice Spice is an up-and-coming rapper who has blown up this year thanks to her song ‘Munch (Feelin’ U)’ going viral on TikTok. Drake and Ice were seen hanging out his label’s even ‘OVO Fest’ this year, but Drake unfollowed her after the event. In ‘BackOutsideBoyz’, people online seem to think Drake has a line about Ice that implies he thinks she’s attractive, but her music is garbage.
“She a 10 tryna rap, it’s good on mute, yeah (It’s good on mute, shh).”
Ice responded seeming pretty unbothered, tweeting “at least ima 10”.
DRAM, the artist behind one of the best summer tunes of all time, ‘Broccoli’, caught a shot on Drake’s song ‘BackOutSideBoyz’ that references a beef the two shared in the past.
“Tried to bring the drama to me, he ain’t know how we cha-cha slide...”
'Hotline Bling’ is one of Drake’s biggest songs ever, but DRAM believes it’s a ripoff of his first single ‘Cha Cha’, with the title of the song being right there in Drake’s line. I just listened to ‘Cha Cha’ and I reckon DRAM’s got a point. DRAM posted a profanity-filled video calling Drake a “b*tch” and saying it’s on sight the next time he sees him.
Alexis Ohanian, Serena William’s Husband
It’s not just other artists Drake took shots at, as Serena William’s husband caught a stray. Alexis Ohanian, who co-founded Reddit, was called a “groupie” by Drake in the song ‘Middle of the Ocean’.
“Sidebar, Serena, your husband a groupie/He claim we don’t got a problem but/No, boo, it is like you comin’ for sushi.”
Drake’s probably being a little salty here seeing as him and Serena have a rumoured dating history going back to 2015, though nothing was ever confirmed.
Alexis responded, tweeting out a pic of him watching his wife with their daughter in his arms, saying he just wants to be “the best groupie for my wife & daughter.”
