Did Drake take a shot at Kanye West in his own hometown of Chicago?

During a stop at Chicago’s United Center last week, when Drake brought his Aubrey & the Three Migos Tour to the windy city, the Canadian rapper changed the lyrics to his hit “Know Yourself” to call out the performance of West’s recent album.

Drizzy changed the last line of the lyric,”Had a job sellin’ Girbaud jeans/I had a yellow TechnoMarine/Then Kanye dropped, it was polos and backpacks,” to “Then Kanye flopped.”

The diss allegedly drew some boos from the Chicago crowd.

The beef between Drake and West isn’t anything new. Earlier this year, Drake and Pusha T, who is signed to West’s G.O.O.D. Music, went back and forth after Pusha questioned Drake’s lyrical abilities on “Infrared” from his album Daytona. 

Drake soon fired back with his “Duppy Freestyle,” which reminded everyone that West had requested Drake’s help with “Father Stretch My Hands” and “30 Hours” from The Life of Pablo. 

Both West’s ‘Ye and Drake’s Scorpion debuted at number one on the Billboard charts. However, Drake’s fifth studio album created a new record by becoming the first album to ever hit one billion streams for its songs globally in a single week.

So far, Yeezy hasn’t fired back. Not yet at least.
