The summer of beef
It’s no secret that Drake’s summer ’16 has consisted of drama and beef. The Views rapper has found himself embroiled in a number of beefs the past few years. From Pusha T to Meek Mill to Joe Budden, Drake skated through the drama and still remains formidable after all of these years. This time, instead of simply remaining lax and quiet, Drake opened fire on one of his rivals…
Drake dishes out some heat
For the first stop on his Summer 16 Tour, Drake wasted no time in calling out artists who have a penchant for biting off his style. He dropped into his anthem, “Summer 16,” and fans noticed how Drake slyly changed one of his lines on the opening verse. “All you boys doing fake controllas wanna be me a little?,” he rapped, as he left everyone to wondering who he was talking.
Was Drake aiming at Tory Lanez?
Upon hearing that line, fans scurried over to Twitter to discuss the line in question. Many believed that Drake was coming at Tory Lanez mainly because the two have been trading jabs for more than a year. In addition, a couple of weeks ago, Lanez released a freestyle to Drake’s “Controlla,” and fans quickly gravitated to his version, deeming it the best one.
Or was Drake aiming at Tyga?
Many thought that Drake was also alluding to Tyga when he rapped that controversial line. Recently, Tyga released his new single “1 of 1,” which is eerily similar to Drake’s “Controlla.”
Drake and Tyga had their spat back in 2014 when Tyga called out Drake in his interview with Vibe. Though the two traded barbs, Tyga came out this year and explained that their beef was squashed, thanks to Kanye.
