Jay Z Disses Drake In New Song: Will Drake Respond?

In the world of hip hop, you can’t really say something about another rapper without that rapper saying something back, and in February Drake kind of dissed Jay Z and criticized his new interest in high-end art.

It’s possible that you haven’t noticed yet, but it seems Jay Z raps a lot about paintings and famous artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol these days, and for some reason Drake doesn’t care for it, as he said this in Rolling Stone last month:

“It’s like Hov can’t drop bars these days without at least four art references,” said Drake. “I would love to collect [art] at some point, but I think the whole rap/art thing is getting kind of corny.”

Now, this isn’t the first time the Toronto rapper has taken a shot at Jay Z, but it’s usually within the confines of a rap song. This time, he hurled the criticism during an interview, which caught Jay’s attention and forced him to respond.

Often times Jay Z will take a I’m-too-big-of-a-rap-star-to-respond-approach, but this time he couldn’t help himself and shot back at Drake in Jay Electronica’s new song We Made It.

“Sorry Mr. Drizzy for so much art talk,” Jay raps. “Silly me, rappin’ ’bout s–t that I really bought/ While these rappers rap about guns that they ain’t shot/And a bunch of other silly s–t that they ain’t got.”

Now it’ll be interesting to see if Drake responds to Jay Z or whether he leaves the comment alone, but either way, both rappers are the talk of the rap world today, because it’s not often that you see two majors artists go at each other like that, especially when they’ve worked together in the past and have alluded to the fact that they’re good friends.

If you remember, Drake and Jay Z collaborated on the song Off That a few years ago, and most recently they worked together on the cut Pound Cake off of Drake’s latest album Nothing Was The Same.

    Just what the world needs; another asshole rapper who does not know **** about music. Where do the record companys find these people? The city slum? Is that why they don’t use their entire name.

    I think Jay’s response was in good taste.

  • Youknow

    Love Drake’s music! He has a unique sound that sticks out while a bunch of these rappers sound the same… No disrespect. I haven’t cared about Jay Z in a while.
