The shots are coming from all different directions, with many looking to snipe at Drake’s throne these days. Metro Boomin and Future’sWe Still Don’t Trust You arrived on Friday (April 12), and they recruited more guests — A$AP Rocky and The Weeknd, who fans think took aim at Drake on separate tracks.

Rocky popped out for a fiery assist on disc No. 2 standout “Show of Hands.” He appears to jab the 6 God about his For All the Dogs album not hitting, which is a bold move considering the Mob frontman hasn’t released a project since 2018.


The Harlem native brags about being intimate with a certain woman, which sounds like Flacko talking about Drake’s baby mama, Sophie Brussaux, whom A$AP rumored to be romantically involved with prior to her relationship with Drizzy.

“N—-s in they feelings over women, what, you hurt or something/ I smash before you birthed, son, Flacko hit it first, son/ Still don’ trust you, it’s always us, never them/ Heard you dropped your latest s–t/ Funny how it just came and went,” Rocky raps.

“Rocky hit Sophie then proceeded to have kids with Rihanna. Drake absolutely despises him,” one fan tweeted.

Another chimed in: “I thought everyone knew that. he hit Sophie but Drake ended up getting her pregnant. while Rocky got Aubrey’s dream girl pregnant lmao.”

Rocky and Drake have had an icy relationship since the days of working together on “F–kin’ Problems” and touring over a decade ago. However, fans believed that Drizzy had smoke for RiRi and Rocky throughout For All The Dogs last year. (In the “Fear of Heights” intro, for example, Drake repeatedly says the word “Anti,” the title of Rihanna’s 2016 album. Another comes on “Another Late Night,” where Drake seems to have A$AP Rocky in his crosshairs. “I ain’t Pretty Flacko,” he rhymes in a nod to Rocky’s nickname, “B—h this s–t get really Rocky.”)

As for The Weeknd, the Canadian crooner makes appearances on multiple tracks. One of the early fan-favorites “All to Myself” is where speculation lies about Abel possibly digging at Drake while being thankful he never signed to OVO.

“As a former devout OVO XO til we Overdose girl, seeing The Weeknd diss Drake is kinda poking at a very tender string in my body,” a conflicted fan wrote to X.

Another claimed, “Ask your self what has Drake done for his own artist on OVO? He just a signed a female act, and I haven’t heard anything from her. All he got is Party that’s it. Bryson and The Weeknd made the best decisions in their entire life.”

“They could never diss my brothers, baby/ When they got leaks in they operation/ I thank God that I never signed my life away/ And we never do the big talk/ They shooters makin’ TikToks,” The Weeknd sings with the last part being a shot at Baka Not Nice, who has compiled a following on TikTok while serving as OVO’s muscle.

The Weeknd passed up on signing to OVO in the early 2010s to land with Republic Records in 2012, which has been a lucrative partnership where he also launched XO Records.
