Drake calls out President Obama and Meek Mill on 'Summer Sixteen'
Drake is coming for everybody in the first single dropped for his new album, Views from the 6.
On Saturday, the Toronto rapper premiered the song “Summer Sixteen,” on his popular OVO Sound Radio on Beats 1 and the 6 God held no punches.
Drizzy starts out by saying he’s “looking for revenge” and “playing dirty, not clean” before setting it off immediately by calling out the POTUS.
“Tell Obama that my verses are like the whips he in/They bulletproof.”
The verse likely hints at a recent interview where the President said Kendrick Lamar would beat Drake in a rap battle because K-Dot’s lyrics are on point.
Drake also had a little jab for Kanye West, whose recent Twitter dragging by Amber Rose has left him looking like a soft target.
“Now I got a house in LA/Now I got a bigger pool than ‘Ye/And look, man, ‘Ye’s pool is nice/Mine is just bigger, is what I’m saying.”
But Drake took the squarest aim at his rap arch enemy Meek Mill, bringing in some real life drama to set it off:
“I let the diss record drop, you were standing right below me (expletive)/
We must have played it a hundred times, you was going to bed/
Why would I put on a vest? I expect you to aim for the head/I could’ve killed you the first time/
You don’t have to try to say it louder (expletive).”
The verses allude to a rumor that over the summer, Drake and his team rented a suite at the Four Seasons Toronto- right above where Nicki Minaj and Meek were staying while on a stop during The Pinkprint Tour. The group allegedly played Drake’s “Back to Back” diss track loudly on repeat before the single went viral.
They always say don’t sleep on your enemies.
But on Saturday Meek Mill immediately responded by posting a 4-song collection clapback of his own called “4/4 Pt. 2.” The track “War Pain” addresses last summer’s rap battle directly.
He also continued to insist that Drake doesn’t write his rhymes– saying he knew “Summer Sixteen” was coming because Drake’s alleged ghostwriter leaked the verses ahead of time.
“See an OVO chain, probably take that (expletive)
Said dreamin’ wasn’t enough, we had to chase that (expletive)
You ain’t write it’ nigga, we caught ya, can’t erase that (expletive)”
“War Pain” song is already earning props across the internet and sparking new debate about whether Meek may just have won this time around.
