By now, the world seems to be aware of all the not-so-subtle shots at several major artists on Drake and 21 Savage's new album Her Loss.
Since the album dropped on Friday, November 4, artists like Megan Thee Stallion, Kanye West, DRAM and Ice Spice have responded to the sneak disses featured on Drizzy and 21's new joint project. Despite being broiled in his own drama, Ye took the time out to acknowledge the subshot in "Circo Loco" when Drake raps about the real reason why he reconciled with him at the Larry Hoover concert last year.

“Enough already I done gave this man his flowers multiple times,” Ye tweeted. “Let’s really see who are real ops are in this music game. Imagine all the rappers on the same side and everyone cleaning up each others contracts. It’s kingdom time. Love Drake.”
Ye and Drake's friendship may still be intact but that might not be the case for the others mentioned on the album. Serena Williams' husband Alexis Ohanian was also mentioned on "Middle of the Ocean" when Drake said “Sidebar, Serena, your husband a groupie/He claim we don’t got a problem but/No, boo, it is like you comin’ for sushi.” Ohanian, who met the tennis star around the time when dating rumors between Drake and the Serena swirled the Internet, also took to Twitter to share his opinion about the lyrics.
The reason I stay winning is because I'm relentless about being the absolute best at whatever I do — including being the best groupie for my wife & daughter. pic.twitter.com/oaEKuRWFnj— AlexisOhanian7️⃣7️⃣6️⃣ (@alexisohanian) November 4, 2022
“The reason I stay winning is because I’m relentless about being the absolute best at whatever I do,” wrote Ohanian, who shares a 5-year-old child with Williams, “including being the best groupie for my wife & daughter.”
Another artist who took issue with Her Loss is DRAM. The Virginia native was mentioned on "BackOutsideBoyz" when Drake raps “Tried to bring the drama to me, he ain’t know how we cha-cha slide” in the hook. The bars are a reference to their dispute over Drake's "Hotline Bling," which DRAM claimed is a ripoff of his hit song "Cha Cha." Their beef reportedly turned physical in 2017, a moment DRAM brought up in his response to the album.
“Somebody tell Drake to shut the f**k up about that s**t, man,” DRAM said in a video posted to social media. “F**king five years ago. This n***a never even touched me n***a. I pressed his ass. His f**king bodyguards ... I ain’t gonna hold you, his bodyguards went to town on the kid, but his bodyguards did it, not his b***h ass. He ain’t touch me. He’s a b***h, you know that ... When I see him, I’ma see him. I’m saying what’s good with the one-on-one, though, my baby?"
Along with DRAM, Ice Spice was caught in Drake's crosshairs when he took issue with her music. “She a 10 tryna rap, it’s good on mute, yeah (It’s good on mute, shh)," Drake spits. The "Munch" rapper didn't seem too upset about it, though. She seemingly tweeted her response and said "At least ima 10."

Their responses came after Megan Thee Stallion took issue with the bars that seem to reference her ongoing legal battle with Tory Lanez. After Meg took to Twitter to express her thoughts on the problematic bars about her, her lawyer Alex Spiro issued a statement in which he condemned the lyrics.
"Those people are going to look very silly when the facts fully come out," Spiro told TMZ.
Regardless of the backlash, Drake and 21 don't seem to mind any of it. They recently celebrated the release of Her Loss at Booby Trap in Miami over the weekend. The duo chucked plenty of cash in the air while partying with G Herbo, OVO Rox and Kodak Black. See some shots of their album release party below.
