Drake actually explicitly dissed someone on a record. Last night (Apr. 1) when Drizzy dropped "Draft Day" he takes a friendly jab at Chance The Rapper, rhyming "And if I left shit to chance I would've picked a name like Chance the Rapper." Could this be payback for Chance name- dropping Drake two years ago on a cut off Chance's debut mixtape 10 Day called "Family" which he raps "Sing all you want, just don’t Drake on they ass"? Possibly.
However, the story from the song is for the first time fans actually heard the OVO head honcho name drop a rapper on a record. Throughout Drizzy's history of beefs or confrontations, that never happened. Think about it. Pusha T, Kendrick, Jay Z, Common, Kanye, Chris Brown and Ludacris, all submittal shots on records.
XXL has looked back one year from now to pick out his best subliminal disses and where it was directed to. Shots fired on the low.

Subliminal Jab: "Here's a reason for niggas that's hatin' without one/ That always let their mouth run/ Bench niggas talkin' like starters, I hate it/ Started from the bottom, now we here, nigga, we made it"
Subliminal Jab: “It’s like every time I plot a return I seem to shift the game / See I can still talk keys without pitchin’ cane”
Subliminal Jab: ”Paris Morton Music 2”
"Like I should fall in line, like I should alert niggas/ When I'm 'bout to drop something crazy and say I'm not the greatest”
”No New Friends”
Subliminal Jab: "No new friends, no new friends, no new friends, no, no new / Still here with my day one niggas, so you hear me say / No new friends, no new friends, no new friends, no, no new / I still ride with my day one niggas, I don't really need / No new friends, no new friends, no new friends, no, no new / I stay down from day one so I say”
Subliminal Jab: "Fuck any nigga that's talkin' that shit just to get a reaction/ Fuck going platinum, I looked at my wrist and it's already platinum”
”Know About Me”
Subliminal Jab: ”I just got back home, 40 days on vacation / No one killing the game, shit is all for the taking”
Subliminal Jab: ”I hear you talk about your city like you run that / And I brought my tour to your city, you my son there nigga”
Subliminal Jab: ”Y'all keep talking ‘bout who next / But I’m about as big as it gets, I swear y'all just wasting y'all breath / I’m the light skinned Keith Sweat, I'mma make it last forever / It’s not your turn ‘cause I ain't done yet”
Chance The Rapper
Subliminal Jab: ”That boy know that they shitting on you, and they can't get past you / You should've followed all my moves, you won't realize 'til after / And if I left shit to chance I would've picked a name like Chance the Rapper / No offense cause I don't know that nigga"
