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

"Make you think about all of the niggas you've been leading on/Make me think about all of the rappers I've been feeding on/Got a feeling that's the same dudes that we speaking on, oh word?"

Song: A$AP Rocky f/ Drake, 2 Chainz & Kendrick Lamar "Fuckin' Problems" (2012)
Potential target: Chris Brown
Shots fired? Maybe

It's hard to listen to this line without having Vietnam style flashbacks to the melee at New York's W.i.P nightclub between the entourages of Drizzy and Chris Brown. The June 14 R&Beef allegedly started with a note from Drake to CB saying, "I'm f***ing the love of your life" (classy move!) and this subliminal is pretty much on the same note. To break it down for y'all, the line reimagines a convo between Drake and Rihanna, most likely over a glass of merlot and surrounded by exquisite stuffed animals, wherein the two superstars realize that RiRi is leading on Chris Brown, and possibly Meek Mill, at the same damn time that Drizz is out-rapping them. While the song was released on October 24th, Rocky claims it was recorded before the incident, while all the men were on the Club Paradise tour. So it could just be a coincidence, or an early example of the tensions that lead up to the brouhaha.
