Shots Fired? A History of Drake's Subliminal Diss Lines

"Some nobody started feeling himself/A couple somebodies started killing themself/A couple albums dropped, those are still on the shelf/I bet them shits would have popped if I was willing to help."

Song: Drake "5 AM in Toronto" (2013)
Potential target: The Weeknd
Shots fired? Maybe

This song was loaded with subliminals but this line stuck out. When we first heard it we would have bet everything we owned that it was about The Weeknd. Even after Drake denied he had any issues with the Weeknd we totally didn't believe him. But then Weeknd told us that he and Drake are totally cool and we were even less sure. And finally, just last week, Weeknd and Drake took a picture together in the studio, ending all the rumors of their feud. So now we don't even know what to think. Except that if this line was about the Weeknd, it would make a lot of sense, seing as how his Trilogy has failed to move even 300,000 copies.
