Drake has notched up a long list of feud partners over the years, and it looks like he could have been taking a few shots at his haters, namely Kanye West and Meek Mill, during his big win at the American Music Awards on November 20.
According to reports, Drake appeared to take a few shots at his enemies during the 2016 AMAs, cryptically slamming his feud partners on at least two occasions following his big win, which saw him take home three awards on the night.
According to Uproxx.com, Drake’s first diss came during his acceptance speech for one of the three awards he took home that night for Favorite Song – Rap/Hip-Hop, Favorite Artist – Rap/Hip-Hop and Favorite Album – Rap/Hip-Hop.
The site reported that Drake fired off a shot to his enemies while on stage, proclaiming while accepting his award for Favorite Artist – Rap/Hip-Hop, “More chune for ya head talk, so watch how you speak out my name, ya know?”

Fans were quick to accuse Drake’s comments of being a diss aimed at fellow rapper Meek Mill, who attended the award show with girlfriend Nicki Minaj, after Drake and Meek’s feud boiled over once again in recent weeks amid claims Drake is “infatuated” with Nicki following his recent split with Rihanna.
Meek has since continually slammed Drake amid their feud in the past few weeks, which included Mill once again calling out the “Hotline Bling” rapper for not writing his own raps during an appearance on DJ Clue’s Power 105.1 radio show.
According to XXLMag, Mill wasn’t afraid to diss Drake in the interview, seemingly taking shots at his fellow rap star by claiming that he “has the ability” to create a freestyle rap before shading Drake again by adding “And I write my own!” after accusing Drake of using a ghostwriter to create his raps on a number of occasions.

Meek then went on to blast Drake again on Snapchat, posting a video of himself rapping along to his Drake diss track “Starting From The Bottom,” before Page Six reported that Meek actually demanded the DJ stop playing Drake’s music at Odell Beckham Jr.’s birthday party earlier this month.
But while it appeared that Drake’s onstage diss was aimed at Meek, whom was actually sitting in the audience at the show, amid their feud, it’s thought that Drake also saved a little shade for another of his fellow rappers after taking home three American Music Awards.
Following the ceremony, Drake was also accused of throwing out a diss Kanye West’s way on social media, seemingly slamming the rapper for claiming that he and DJ Khaled manipulated airplay for their duet “For Free.”
Uproxx.com posted a screen shot of a comment Drake posted on Khaled’s Instagram post that congratulated him on his big wins, where the site claimed that he appeared to take a cryptic shot at West amid reports the two are now locked in a feud.

According to the screenshot, Drake commented on Khaled’s post, “Some bwoy need fi make some song and stop cry,” which fans took to mean that Drake was accusing Kanye of not focusing on his music and “crying” following a bizarre onstage rant in Sacramento, California, last week.
Prior to BBC News reporting that Kanye has now been hospitalized and has cancelled his “Saint Pablo Tour” following the rant, West claimed onstage during a concert that he believed the radio airplay of the twosome’s song received may not have been organic.
According to HipHopNMore.com, Kanye allegedly told the crowd at the show that he thought Drake and Khaled “set up their song ‘For Free’ in a manner where the radio would play it innumerable times,” which could have been the reason why Drake appeared to fire back at Kanye on Instagram amid their feud.
