Just hold on, we're
going home getting insulted. Indeed, after Drake shared some harsh words about Jay-Z in a recent interview, Hova is firing back in a new song. And so the lesson to learn here is: Never speak ill of Jay-Z's art collection.
A feud has been brewing between Drake and Jay-Z for a little while now. In a Rolling Stone interview last month, Drake took aim at the fact that Jay-Z raps about being an art collector. "It’s like Hov can’t drop bars these days without at least four art references," Drake says. Drake adds that he wouldn't mind collecting art one day, but he says that rappers being so interested in art is "corny."
We're thinking Kanye West would take offense to that comments as well, since Ye is a known art lover. And sure enough, Drake appeared to diss Jay-Z and Kanye in his "I'm On One" track. "I’m just feelin’ like the throne is for the taking," Drake rapped on the song, apparently referencing Jay and Ye's Watch the Throne album. "Watch me take it."
Now, Jay-Z makes it clear in his new song, "We Made It," that he isn't pleased. "Sorry, Mrs. Drizzy, for so much art talk," Jay raps on it. "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."
Long story short: Jay-Z apparently reads Rolling Stone. And we don't blame Jay-Z for being upset at Drake's diss, since we're not sure why Drake has a problem with someone rapping about things that are important to them.
But this rift is surprising, given that both guys are close to Rihanna — Jay helped discover her, while Drake is rumored to be dating her. Maybe Rihanna can channel her inner Jimmy Carter and get them to squash it?
What do you think of this feud?
