In the ever-evolving world of hip-hop, clashes and disagreements among artists are no strangers to the limelight. The latest feud-grabbing headlines involve Drake and Metro Boomin, two giants in the industry whose exchange of words on social media has set tongues wagging.

"“Yet 'Her Loss' keeps winning rap album of the year over 'H&V.' Proof that award shows are just politics and not for me,""

"“Damn, little mans, I’m just tryin’ to do me/ If the record’s two mil, I’m just tryin’ to move three.”"
