There’s absolutely no limit on Jay Z’s creative potential when it comes to throwing subliminal shots at Drake. The two rappers have been lobbing back and forth at each other on their last couple of releases, and it sure seems like Hov took another shot at Drizzy on DJ Khaled’s new single, “They Dont’ Love You No More.” Using “lacrosse” as the dagger, nonetheless.
“Haters wanna ball, let me tighten up my draw string/ Wrong sport, boy, you know you’re as soft as a Lacrosse team,” Hov spits over the Mike Zombie beat.
Drake last took shots on his “Draft Day” freestyle, so Hov took the opportunity to fire back with another sports reference, and particularly a sport that’s pretty popular in Canada. Oh, and it must sting a little bit extra since Mike Zombie, who produced Drake’s smash “Started From the Bottom,” is also a part of the YMCMB rapper’s OVO Sound crew.
The Twitter reactions to Hov’s jab might’ve been even more entertaining than the line itself. Apparently those who’ve actually played lacrosse don’t think it’s such a “soft” sport after all.
Thanks to Jay Z people are going to look up lacrosse and see that it is the opposite of soft. Lacrosse is a full contact sport unlike Bball.
