Drake’s latest album includes rants to many other artists and public figures, some of whom have their own choice words for the Canadian rapper.
Drake released “Her Loss,” a 16-track collaboration with 21 Savage, on Friday. In the song “Circo Loco”, Megan Thee Stallion claimed that the allegations that Tory Lanez had been shot were false. In 2020, Megan stated that Lanez shot himself in the foot after he was charged with felony assault with a firearm and pleaded not guilty.
“This lie about getting shot, but he’s still a horse,” Drake says in the cut.
on Twitter, Megan asked other artists to “stop using my footage” shortly after the album’s release. He questioned why it was acceptable for women to joke about being shot and seemed to compare the reaction to his shooting to the ongoing outcry over Kanye West’s anti-Semitic comments.
“Ready to boycott shoes and clothes, but the dog piles on a black woman when she says she was abused by one of the boys in the house,” she wrote.
Megan Thee Stallion has been vocal about criticizing society’s acceptance of violence against black women, writing a 2020 New York Times op-ed that reflected on her shooting and the intersection of sexism and racism.
And Megan isn’t the only public figure speaking out against Drake’s latest speech.
On his 12th track “Middle of the Ocean,” the rapper takes a swipe at Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, who married tennis superstar Serena Williams in 2017.
“Sidebar, Serena, your husband is a groupie,” raps the artist.
But In a Twitter thread about his new investments and business success, Ohanian said being a groupie isn’t such a bad thing.
“The reason I keep winning is because I’m relentless about being the best at everything I do, including being the best team for my wife and daughter,” he wrote.
Williams replied to the tweet with various heart-covered emojis.
He is a longtime fan of Drake Williams, attending his matches since at least 2011. He also lent his name to the 2013 song “Worst Behavior.”
