Diss tracks were a huge part of 2016, and everyone got a piece of it. The biggest match was between rappers Meek Mill and Drake, and we all know how that one ended. Besides dropping a track devoted to just taking shots at someone, you can also do it within another song subliminally. These are some of the best examples of that so far in the year 2017.
“Shining” by DJ Khaled ft. Jay Z & Beyonce
Jay Z raps:
“I shouldn’t even worry, backward n***as/12 solo albums, all platinum, n***a/I know you ain’t out here talkin’ numbers, right?/I know you ain’t out here talkin’ summers, right?/I know you ain’t walkin’ ’round talkin’ down/Sayin’ boss shit when you a runner, right?”
A lot of fans are speculating that these are shots at none other than Drake.
“Lose You” by Drake
Drake’s second verse on the song includes:
“All you did was write the book on garbage-ass Rollies/Ego strokin’, picture postin’/Claimin’ that you’d do it for motivational purposes only/But you just had to show me/See, I know, ’cause I study you closely/I know when someone lyin’/I notice people standin’ for nothin’ and gettin’ tired”
Obvious shots at Rolex lover Meek Mill, we know the two have a lot of beef.
“Make Love” by Gucci Mane ft. Nicki Minaj
We can see Nicki’s obvious shots at Remy Ma. She rapped:
“Your career gon’ be with Anna Nicole, witcha dumbass face/She ain’t eatin’ but I swear she got some bum ass taste/Text her man like, ‘Dawg, how that bum ass taste?’/Pay your rent! And stay in your bum ass place/Oooohhh, oh you the qu-e-e-the queen of this here?/One platinum plaque, album flopped, bitch, where?”
