As he noted earlier this year on "5 AM In Toronto," Drake is proud of being one of the few rappers still known primarily for his music. That's true, we think, and something to be proud of. But it's not like Drake is above extracurricular affairs. In fact, lately, nearly every song Drake releases features a handful of rhymes that seem to address real-life affairs. The gossip-pages stuff. Subliminal taunting. Often vague enough so that it could be aimed at anyone. Some of those slick shots are about Rihanna (like that entire second verse on “Fireworks”), some are about other past flames. A list of Drake talking about his exes could run from here to Texas.
But seeing as how the new song “All Me,” which came out last week, contains a few lines that seem to be directed at certain Chicago rapper, today we’re more interested in Drake's relationships with rival rappers. Rhymes like, “Soap opera rappers all these niggas sound like All My Children” from 2011's "Headlines" could be about anybody. But lines like, "I’m just feeling like the throne is for the taking, watch me take it..."? Ahh, those are a bit more obviously directed. Let's take a look back at some of Drake’s finer lyrical barbs with Shots Fired? A History of Drake's Subliminal Diss Lines.
