Drake not only has the industry on fire right now, with the release of his highly-anticipated ‘Certified Lover Boy’ album, but the internet is going crazy over the 6’s God’s latest offering for the culture.
While the initial release date was pushed back countless times after Drake injured himself, the CLB drop couldn’t have come at a better time, seeing all the chat that is surrounding one of the biggest artists in music and much of his peer beefs. Just last week, Kanye West, who Drake has had a long-standing feud with over the years, dropped his ‘Donda’ project and it was reported that Ye wouldn’t have any issues with Drizzy if he didn’t mention West on his album; well, it looks like Drake missed that memo because he not only addressed West, but the Toronto native took seemingly pointed shots at social media influencer Justin Laboy, Charlamagne Tha God, and Swizz Beatz.

Drake’s “You Only Live Twice,” which features Lil Wayne and Rick Ross, takes a clear shot a Beatz, following Swizz’ previous disrespectful comments about Drake where he called his former “Fancy” collaborator, “p***y” several times, while inebriated during a social media live. On the track Drake spits,”“Unthinkable when I think of the way these n***as been actin ’/ I never did you nothin’ and you play like we family, huh? / Next thing, you wanna shoot me down, it can’t be love / Not sure where you was tryna send it, it can’t be up/ That day you sounded like a b***h, you fancy, huh?”
While Swizz did issue an apology that same week of his comments, Drake’s dropping of their “Fancy” work, and hinting at the “unthinkable,” which is a nod to “Un-Thinkable (I’m Ready)” a song he wrote and featured on Swizz’ wife Alicia Keys, shows the apology was a little too late.
