Jay Z seems to have finally responded to Drake’s jabs with a punch of his own. On DJ Khaled’s new track “They Don’t Love You No More” the veteran rapper spits “Haters wanna ball let me tighten up my drawstring / Wrong sport boy, you know you’re soft as a lacrosse team.”

The diss, on the track that also features verses from Rick Ross, Meek Mill and French Montana is suspected to be a reply to a comment Drake made earlier about Jay Z during an NBA playoff game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Toronto Raptors.

The Canadian rapper showed no love for Jay, who once owned a stake of the NY team. In an interview with TSN commentators Matt Davlin and Jack Armstrong the Raptor’s Global Ambassador said, “This (Raptors) is the people’s team. Jay Z’s somewhere eating a fondue plate.”

This is only the most recent of the two rappers verbal sparing. In a February interview with Rolling Stone Drake said, It’s like Hov can’t drop bars these days without at least four art references! I would love to collect at some point, but I think the whole rap/art world thing is getting kind of corny.”

Jay fired back with a few bars on the remix to Jay Electronica’s “We Made It.”

“Sorry Mr. Drizzy for so much art talk / Silly me rappin’ about shit that I really bought/ while these rappers rap about guns they ain’t shot/and a bunch of other silly shit that they ain’t got,” he rapped.—Chris M. Garner
