Every shot Drake took in new diss track 'Push Ups'

Drake has been embroiled in a battle since the release of Metro Boomin and Future’s collaborative album, We Don’t Trust You. The project featured some ambiguous references that the Scorpion creator has assumed were aimed at him and has directly responded to Kendrick Lamar’s lyrical attack on ‘Like That’. 

The diss track entitled ‘Push Ups (Drop & Give Me Fifty)’ speaks to Metro Boomin, Kendrick Lamar and also Rick Ross, who recently leaked his diss song ‘Champagne Memories’ directed at the ‘God’s Plan’ rapper.

On the title track, ‘We Don’t Trust You’, Future raps, “You a n*gga number one fan dog.” Although it’s unsure whether this was directly aimed at Drake, he responded to the vague lyric on ‘Push Ups’, assertively stating, “I could never be nobody number one fan / Your first number one I had to put it in your hand,” referencing Future’s first chat-topping song as a lead artist ‘Wait for U’. 

Switching his focus to Lamar, Drake (real name Aubrey Graham) mocked the title of his 2022 album, Mr Morale & The Big Steppers, by rapping, “How the fuck you big steppin’ with a size seven men’s on?!”

Graham then poked fun at some questionable pop features Lamar has done in the past, rhyming, “Maroon 5 need a verse, you better make it witty / Then we need a verse for the Swifties.” In 2015, Kendrick appeared on Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’ and Maroon 5’s ‘Don’t Wanna Know’ two years later.

In 2012, Kendrick Lamar signed with Aftermath, an imprint of Interscope Records. As such, Drake used the two labels for some witty wordplay, emceeing, “Like your label boy you in the scope right now / And you gon’ feel the Aftermath of what I write down.”

Since the release of We Don’t Trust You, Metro Boomin’ has taken to social media several times, and in the midst of the war, he once tweeted, “Once you pick a side, stay there…#WEDONTTRUSTYOU.” However, Drake obviously caught wind of this and in ‘Push Ups’ told the producer, “Metro shut your ho ass up and make some drums n*gga.”

Firing shots at Rick Ross for the release of ‘Champagne Memories,’ Graham spat the verse, “I might take your latest girl and cuff her like I’m Ricky / Can’t believe he jumpin’ in this n*gga turnin’ fifty / Every song that made it on the chart he got from Drizzy.” Here, Drake references Ross’ past as a correctional officer in Miami and makes fun of his age.
