Drake is known to have received inspiration from the music that originates out of Jamaica. He has worked with artists such as Popcaan under his label and more. Drizzy has been involved in a multi year beef with Pusha T and Kanye West, but the Toronto artist surprised many with his latest song that he collaborated on via United Kingdom artist Headie One.
“With Pop Skull in Gaza, but not that Gaza, but still it’s a mazza/ N***as want peace like Cassava/ But we let bridge dem burn like grabba,” he raps on the song as people believe it is a shot at none other than the legendary Mavado.
Now it was well documented the rivalry Mavado had with Vybz Kartel throughout the 2000s known as Gully vs. Gaza. He would make mention of this feud after Vado came back at Drake’s neck on Instagram and then with his surprise diss track, “Enemy Lines.” “You are not from Dancehall/You have no Power in Dancehall n everybody know who introduce you to Dancehall so don’t feel like you can come disrespect Gully take that out you brain n don’t dweet again,” Vado said in response.
Mavado coming at Drake in this fashion is not unexpected since the two of them were once friends. Mavado even appeared in a Drake music video years ago.
Popcaan is an OVO artist, though, who once came up under Vybz Kartel wing which may be why the World Boss felt a need to comment. He jumped on Instagram and shared a clip despite being behind bars of the “Only You Freestyle” with the caption, “Where is the dis?” along with a Jamaican and Canadian flag. Shortly after, he shared a video from Drake’s interview with Nardwuar where the Canadian rapper calls for Vybz’ freedom.
