Drake’s Tyga Diss In “6 PM New York” Reignites Their Brutal Feud
In case you haven't heard already, Drake dropped a surprise album in the middle of the night. Yes, that's right, he "pulled a Beyoncé," much to the delight of his fans. Drake's followers immediately began blowing up Twitter by gushing about his 17-song album, If You're Reading This, It's Too Late. Of course, not everyone is happy with it, especially a certain former Cash Money label-mate Drake reportedly dissed on a track, Tyga. Check out a snippet of lyrics from the Tyga diss, "6 PM in New York" below.
Vibe reports that "6 PM in New York" is a response to an ongoing feud originally started by Tyga in a 2014 Vibe cover story, where the "Rack City" rapper revealed that he didn't actually like Drake and Nicki Minaj and only worked with them out of loyalty for his label. Unsurprisingly, this did not go over very well with the rest of his team. It eventually led to Tyga's major fallout with the label. And from what it looks like in Drake's new album, it seems like he's ready to reignite the flames of the feud from where they left off.
After all, it's pretty clear who Drake is referencing in the lyrics, based on both the Vibe reference and the "homie" nod, indicating that this was a peer of his who he thought was a trusted friend. Instead of lashing out completely at him, Drake seems to have a sort of "bless your heart" attitude about the whole thing, seeing as he called him "reckless" and "childish." But where it gets really interesting is him calling out Tyga for his reported relationship with 17-year-old Kylie Jenner, which has not been without controversy, and suggesting that he stop acting like, well, a teenager.
And it seems like Tyga will not be taking the diss lying down. As Vibe reported, he tweeted and deleted this message in response to the track: "@Drake u still a bitch. All that sneak dissing is weak. Just pull up. I know where u live and u know my address.. U been ducking the fade from Brown. 2015-02-13."
Even though the tweet was later deleted, it's probably safe to say that this feud is not over yet. We'll have to see if Tyga comes out with a track in response, or if Drake divulges more details about the song in an interview. Stay tuned, because the gloves are off — again.
