SOHH Whatcha Think: LudaDiss: Will Big Sean & Drake Fire Back At Ludacris' New Diss Track? [Click Here & Speak]

Well d*mn, Ludacris. You just gonna diss Drake at the same time his new album drops? The homie was probably poolside sipping margarita's, chillin' and sh*t and Lil Twist walks up and tells him sh*t has gotten real.
If you haven't heard, Ludapissed, I mean Ludacris, dropped a gem on 'em yesterday with a new song in which he not only takes aim at Young Money's Drizzy but also G.O.O.D. Music spitter Big Sean.
"I'm the truth in this booth and you n*ggas all h*es," Luda raps. "Counterfeit rappers say I'm stealing they flows, but I can't steal what you never made up b*tch/Y'all some duplicate rap cloning n*ggas/I manufacture you h*es put on your makeup b*tch. ... Let me explain, nothing's been new since Big Daddy Kane/Flows'll get recycled, passed around to different names -- Y'all get a couple hit records, make some noise and have the nerve to start shouting?/Who's gassing 'em?/ ... May not like the way I used it, but you know you ain't invent it, boy/Do your research before you make a claim so bogus that's disrespecting pioneers in the game ... 'My Chick Bad' went platinum, still winning motherf*cker!" ("Bada Boom")
So yeah, n*ggas huffin' and puffin' over the "super-duper flow". The super-duper flow is the anti-similie punchline setup where cats say sh*t like:
"I'm ain't playin' with you boys. Sandusky."
"Give up the keys and the car. Valet."
Earlier this year, Drake spoke on artists misusing the flow and even credited Big Sean as its true creator.
"Well, that flow has been killed by so many rappers. And, I never want to use that flow again in life. [Laughs] I wanted to take if off my album, because I was like, 'I shut 'em down. Onyx.' I hate the fact that that rhyme is still in there. To be honest, that flow, you can trace it back to like...I trace it back to Big Sean (artist on Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music). That's the first guy I heard utilize that flow throughout the duration of a verse. I'll give him that credit. I think Kanye got it from him. Me and Wayne found a dope way to do it. I don't want to sound cocky, but the best way its been used was on "Forever." Those lines just all individually make so much sense. They're all punchlines. Then a bunch of rappers started doing it and using the most terrible references in the world. I don't want to offend somebody...I hate that rappers picked that flow up. I wish they had left that for people that know how to use it. [They go like] "It's a parade! MACY'S!" (All Hip Hop)
When contacted for a comment, Detroit rapper Big Sean had this to say:
Drake is no battle rapper, but it will be interesting to see if he musters up the heart to rile up the the OVO click and get it truly "mobbin' like that". SOHH Watcha Think -- Will Sean and/or Drizzy fire back with a response on wax?
