G-Unit head 50 Cent is doing nothing to lessen the tensions between Young Money’s Drake and Roc Nation CEO Jay Z after weighing in on their current war of words.
Reacting to Jigga going at Drizzy’s neck on Jay Electronica‘s new “We Made It” remix, Fif said their feud is far from over.
“I think it’s just getting started because we didn’t actually hear any verses or rap from Drake,” Fif said in an interview. “But you know what? It’s interesting. I think you’re supposed to rap about things that are in your actual life. But those are laws that were a part of our culture when I actually came in and fell in love with it. But it’s old school.” (“Russ Parr Morning Show”)
Jigga took direct aim at Drizzy and defended his knack for rhyming about high-profile art on a new “We Made It” remix.
Hov takes the opportunity to stunt on his haters with a killer verse. “Sorry Mr. Drizzy for so much art talk / Silly me rapping about sh*t that I really bought / While these rappers rap about guns they ain’t shot and a bunch of other silly sh*t that they ain’t got / I’m on my Lupita Nyong’o / Stuntin’ on stage after 12 Years a Slave,” he boasts.

In a recent interview, Drake specifically called out Jay over his art references.
Drake is interested in art, but he scoffs at how trendy art shout-outs have become in rap. “It’s like Hov can’t drop bars these days without at least four art references!” he says. “I would love to collect at some point, but I think the whole rap/art world thing is getting kind of corny.” (Rolling Stone)
Earlier this month, Atlanta rapper Soulja Boy revealed plans to release a music video with Drake for their “We Made It” remix.
“We gonna make a video for sure. Video is coming. The treatment is crazy. It’s coming for sure. I think people are going to like it, man. I’m just turning up. I am just doing me. Drake, that’s the homie. People really like that record. Everywhere I go, they play it. Everywhere, it is getting bigger than I thought it was going to be. You gotta catch up to it.” (XXL Mag)
