Rick Ross may have weighed-in on Drake and Meek Mill’s feud in his track “Color Money,” but is the rapper taking even more shots at Drake in his remix of Kanye West’s “Famous”?
Rick Ross dropped the remixed version of Kanye West’s “Famous” on Sunday, just one week after West made headlines regarding the arrival of his new album, The Life of Pablo.
The track, which features Rihanna and Swizz Beatz, caused controversy earlier this week after West referenced his on-again, off-again feud with Taylor Swift with the line, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that b**** famous.”
In the track, Rick Ross maintains Kanye West and Swizz Beat’s first verse, along with Rihanna’s hook before rapping, “Mind your business the killers can intervene / I’m half naked in the GQ magazine / Tours looking like its Wrestlemania / I’m The Rock setting fires to the stadium,” XXL magazine reports.
However, one part of Rick Ross’ verse has some fans speculating over whether or not the rapper may have taken aim at Drake’s newest release, “Summer Sixteen,” when he seemingly references Drake’s self-comparison to Jay Z and Roc-A Fella Records.
In “Summer Sixteen,” Drake raps, “I used to wanna be on Roc-A-Fella then I turned into Jay,” sparking controversy over the rapper’s claims that he’s the new Jay Z, Bustle reports.
While Meek Mill shot back at Drake’s claims in his own diss track, “War Pain,” some fans are arguing that Rick Ross may be throwing shade at Drake in the beginning of his “Famous (Remix)” verse when he raps, “The aura arrogance is been known to fill the room / Boom, little n**** who are you? / Roc-A-Fella Records on record to kill a crew.”
While Rick Ross hasn’t confirmed his alleged dig at Drake, the rapper previously blasted Drake in his Black Market track, “Color Money,” while also defending his MMG protégé, Meek Mill, amid the rapper’s ongoing feud with Drake.
“My lil homie made a million on his girl tour / We back to back and down to whack a n**** unborn,” Rick Ross raps while referencing Drake’s “Back To Back” diss track in which Drake disses Meek Mill’s position as an opening act for girlfriend Nicki Minaj’s 2015 “The Pinkprint Tour.”
While Drake and Rick Ross have collaborated on tracks in the past, including hits like “Free Spirit” and “Aston Martin Music,” it appears that Rick Ross is adamant about defending Meek Mill amid the rapper’s ongoing beef with Drake.
However, some fans have expressed their skepticism regarding rumors that Rick Ross dissed Drake on his “Famous (Remix)” especially given Drake’s assistance in helping to pen a few of Kanye West’s tracks for The Life of Pablo.
The news comes just weeks after Meek Mill surprised fans with the release of his Drake diss track, “War Pain,” which reignited ghostwriting rumors for the Toronto native after Meek dropped the song within minutes of Drake’s debut of “Summer Sixteen” on OVO Sound Radio.
Meek Mill wasted no time in dissing Drake’s new music release on Instagram while adding fuel to the ghostwriting rumors with the caption, “The Ghostwriter told me,” seemingly alluding to fans’ confusion over how Meek Mill obtained the lyrics to Drake’s new track before the song’s debut.
Bang! Then @MeekMill fires back with ‘War Pain’????????????????????????????????
