In a fan recorded video, Drizzy switches the lyrics on “Summer Sixteen.” The original version says, “All you boys in the new Toronto want to be me a little.” But last night Drake rapped, “All you boys doing fake ‘Controlla’ wanna be me a little.”
Tory Lanez remixed “Controlla”—so folks immediately assumed Drake was referencing him. It doesn’t help that Drake’s original “Summer Sixteen” line was apparently already considered to be a sneak-diss.
Aside from assumedly taking shots at folks, Drake has been busy occupying the No. 1 spot on Billboard (Views is now the 10th album in the last 20 years to spend 10 weeks at No. 1), shooting the video for YG’s “Why You Always Hatin’,” in L.A. earlier this week, and digging through old boxes to find super heartfelt apology letters he wrote to his mom 10 years ago for charging her credit card.
As for Tory Lanez, he doesn’t appear to be too worried. Earlier this morning he announced on Twitter his plans to release his debut album, I Told You on August 19, and also shared tour dates for the I Told You Tour. Tickets go on sale this Friday.
Check out the fan video of Drake’s performance below.
