Drake’s supposed jab at Tory Lanez didn’t go unnoticed by the fellow Toronto rapper. In Lanez’s new song with A$AP Ferg, the 23-year-old seemingly disses Drake for slamming him in “Summer Sixteen.”
According to Rap-Up, Lanez and Ferg dropped “Line Up the Flex” Friday, and a few of Lanez’s verses in the song has fans wondering if he was firing back at Drake. One verse in question is: “For them n----- that was hatin’ on me, even though a n---- used to tell em all, I was never gang, gang, gang, gang. I was always One Umbrella Mob.”
The verse is said to be a direct response to Drake rapping in “Summer Sixteen” that Lanez was “never gang, gang, gang, gang, you was never one of us. Had us fooled for a minute there, now we done all grow’d up.”
The Fader reports that Drake dissed the “Say It” rapper several more times in the song, including when he said, “All you boys in the new Toronto want to be a little like me.”
It’s not clear what sparked the beef between the two rappers, but Lanez told Forbes last week that he used Drake’s “Summer Sixteen” diss to help his career. “When the record came out, I turned s--- into sugar,” he said. “Everybody looked at it as a negative, but I looked at it as a positive. Last month, I made $20,000 off of the New Toronto merch alone.”
As previously reported, Drake has also been feuding with rapper Meek Mill since this past summer. Their beef started after Mill went on a Twitter rant accusing Drake of using a ghostwriter.
