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

"It bothers me when the gods/Get to actin' like the broads..."

Song: Rick Ross f/ French Montana & Drake "Stay Schemin'" (2012)
Potential target: Common
Shots fired? HELL FUCKIN YEAH

In late 2011, Common dropped an aggressive track (well, aggressive by his standards) called "Sweet" where he went at an unnamed rapper. It was assumed that Common was just spitting standard braggadocio—but then the Chicago rapper went on Sway In The Morning and revealed the song was indeed directed at Drake. And thus, the beef was on. Drake unleashed his monster "Stay Schemin'" verse, Common shot back rapping over the same beat ("You Canada dry"), and eventually the two met at the 2012 NBA All Star Game in Orlando and shook hands. An anticlimactic ending to the greatest rap beef to involve two rappers who don't eat beef.
