Genius have compiled all the disses that Drake snuck into his acclaimed More Life release, and there are a lot more than you might have originally thought. We’ve summarised their video below for easy reading.
“I didn’t listen to Hov on that old song when he told me pay it no mind,
I get more satisfaction outta going at your head and watching all of you die”
This is an apparent reference to Drake’s cut with Jay-Z from his debut album Thank Me Later, where Hov gives Drake advice on how to best succeed, by stating Drizzy should stay away from rap feuds. It’s funny how the Songwriting Hall of Fame inductee foresaw Drake’s feuds with Meek Mill.
“How you let the kid fightin’ ghostwritin’ rumours turn you to a ghost?
Oh, you n***** got jokes
After claiming he would never perform “Back To Back” again, Drake is seemingly sending shots at Meek Mill in these bars after the MMG MC added fuel to rumours that Drake had a ghostwriter in their back-and-forth fued.
“I could never have a kid and still be out here kidding around,
Boys playing around, where you really wanna take it now?
F*ck being rich when I’m 40 man,
I’m tryna make it now”
This is another speculated shot at Jay-Z, with Genius claiming that not many other rappers fit the description of the character in Drake’s lyrics, which is hard to disagree with.
“All you did was write the book on garbage-ass Rollies and ego-strokin’,
Claiming that you’d do it for motivational purposes only,
But you just had to show me.”
On “Lose You”, Drake references Meek Mill’s “ego-strokin'” Instagram posts and the lifestyle Meek advertises on his social media.
“I want you to myself,
But I know you just left someone else,
I know you did, he did a number on you,
That must be why you move so Icy”
Here, Drizzy is referencing Nicki Minaj’s split from Meek Mill, who has recently claimed that the Take Care artist had a hand in their break up.
“Do Not Disturb”
“You overnight celebrity, you one day star,
I swear I told you that I’m in this bitch for eternity,
I am a reflection of all of your insecurities,
Behind closed doors a lot of 6 God worshipping,
Done talk now, cause there’s other sh*t that’s concerning me”
Genius claim that these bars are a direct reference to Tory Lanez’s government name, Daystar Peterson, as well as Lanez’s record “I Told You”.
