Drew: There are some really clear, direct shots at other rappers on NWTS. Who do you think lines like ‘Ay B I got ya CD you get a E for Effort’ or ‘I don’t know why they been lyin’ but yo sh*t is not that inspiring’ or ‘F*ck goin’ platinum’ are aimed at? Who do you think Drake perceives as competition enough to aim those barbs in that way?
Dan: Drake’s a pretty intelligent dude. He’s smart enough to take ambiguous shots at rappers without putting their name to wax and giving them their five minutes on his own record. Nobody is on Drake’s level right now, so naming names would be more of a victory for his competition than an “Oh shit, look at Drizzy letting his nuts hang” moment for Drake. In all reality, a lot of the shots are probably still aimed at Pusha.
