Currently, Drake and Taylor Swift are perhaps the biggest names in the music industry. While Swift rules the pop scene, Drake undoubtedly has an upper hand in hip-hop music-making. Swift is the most streamed artist on Spotify and the rapper has 13 number-one hits on the Billboard Hot 100, which ties him with the King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

It is not uncommon for rappers to diss each other directly or indirectly. However, things seem to have gone up a notch this time around, as the God’s Plan rapper has become the favorite target of some of his biggest competitors. Amidst this battle, a netizen stirred the pot by posting an edited picture with lyrics that suggested that rapper NAV dissed Drake through a track on Swift’s new album, The Tortured Poets Department.

Taylor Swift has often collaborated with other musicians on her albums. For instance, Lana Del Rey was featured on the song Snow on the Beach in Swift’s 10th studio album Midnights, and Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon, whose vocals were featured in the song exile on folklore, the 8th studio album.

Swift’s 11th studio album The Tortured Poets Department dropped on 19th April and it would not be wrong to say that it has taken the world by storm. On this album, the Blank Space singer has collaborated with Post Malone for the lead single Fortnight and with Florence and the Machine on the track Florida!!!

Eagle-eyed fans began noticing the subtle references soon after the songs dropped. However, one X account made a misleading post that made it look like NAV has taken a hit on Drake on Swift’s song The Alchemy. According to the X user, in a now deleted tweet, the lyrics are:

“Diss my brothers? OVO can’t come back to the 6 / Pop a perc, then brown boy pop up on em with the stick”

These words seem to hint at the ongoing battle between Drake, who co-owns the OVO Sound record label, and some of the other big rappers in the industry such as Kendrick Lamar and Future. However, these words are not actually not on The Alchemy.

Kendrick Lamar’s on-and-off feud with Drake has been a subject of widespread public attention. The feud seems to have been reignited with Lamar hitting at Drake and J. Cole in his uncredited verse on Metro Boomin and Future’s Like That on the collaborative album, We Don’t Trust You.

This was apparently in response to the track First Person Shooter on the album For All the Dogs. Quite a few big names in the rap industry seem to have joined in on the battle and they all are apparently targeting Drake, who is putting up a good fight himself.

Fans of rap music are following the battle closely as each new update adds fuel to the raging fire. Similarly, the X account posting the misleading news about NAV dissing Drake got fans all riled up as one of them wrote:

“Drake is about to have all the Swifties against him”

Here is what some others wrote:

Some fans even caught on to the fact that the post was actually fake. Considering that Drake has long been a supporter of Swift and even praised her on his track Red Button on the album Scary Hours 3, it seems quite unlikely that the Bejeweled singer would allow an artist to diss him on one of her songs.

The Tortured Poets Department, We Don’t Trust You, For All the Dogs, and Scary Hours 3 are available for streaming on Spotify.
