Shots Fired!!! Drake Strikes Back At Jay Z AND Chance the Rapper (Audio)

Two Sundays ago, Jay Z shook things up in the Rap hemisphere with a Jay Electronica collaboration where Hov seemingly addressed Drake’s Rolling Stone magazine comments, criticizing the art and fashion contents of his Magna Carta…Holy Grail raps. So Jay sarcastically apologized in the song, apparently addressing Drake as “Miss Drizzy.”

Think Drake would go quietly? Nope.

Drake returns with “Draft Day,” affirming his five-year spot as the proverbial #1 pick in the league (he even references Johnny Manziel in his official artwork). He uses a Boi-1da-produced track employing a Lauryn Hill sampled vocal. Drake talks extra cocky on this one, and check these subliminal lines out:

“I heard they talking crazy, I was out of town / You know they love to pop all that shit when I’m not around / But when I’m here, psst, not a sound / That’ll make me snap, jot it down / Get in the booth and lay a body down.”

This presumably notes that “We Made It” was released while Drake was overseas, concluding the European leg of his Would You Like A Tour?

Also noted, Drake kinda shoots a dismissive brushback line towards Chance The Rapper, who may be believed to be one of the other top prospects on “Draft Day.”

Here’s what he said there: “And if I would’ve left shit to chance, I probably would have picked a name like Chance The Rapper / No offense, ’cause I don’t know that nigga.”

Is Drake playing by early 2000s Jay Z rules? How do you think this stacks up as a response? Lastly, should Chance be offended, or laugh it off like he seemingly does with so much?
