Now that he’s fresh off his tour, Drake’s back at it. First order of business? Responding to Jay Z’s classy shade.
As you may recall, a few weeks ago, Jay called Drizzy out on “We Made It” over comments he made regarding Hov and his love for art. And although Drake has been busy cuddling up with Rihanna when he’s not on stage or in a booth, don’t think for a moment he didn’t hear what was said.
In preparation for Johnny Manziel (Texas A&M) and Toronto’s Andrew Wiggins (Kansas Jayhawks) entering the NFL and NBA draft, Drake dropped a song called “Draft Day.”
Sampling Lauryn Hill’s classic “Doo Wop (That Thing)” record, Drake also uses the song to drop some subliminal disses towards his former big homie. Apparently, Drake heard Jay call him “Mrs. Drizzy” and not “Mr. Drizzy” when he was calling him out in “We Made It” because he responded:
I’m focused on makin’ records and gettin’ bigger
Just hits, no misses (Mrs.), that’s for the married folk
He also added:
Tell ‘em fix my suite up cause I’m comin’ home
I heard he talkin’ crazy, I was out of town
You know they love to pop all that sh-t when I’m not around
But when I’m here, not a sound
That’ll make me snap, jot it down
Go in the booth and lay a body down
Drake once said, “Diss me and you’ll never hear a reply to it,” and that only applies when you are not Jay Z. There’s nothing wrong with a little friendly competition!
Meanwhile, it sounds as though he could have offered up a small apology with the lines:
I think I’m on my eighth flow, just watch me paint flow
We all do it for the art so I can never hate though
