"How About Now" (2014)
Lyric: "I used to try and burn you CDs of my new shit/You be like, 'Who's this?'/I be like, 'Me, girl'/You be like, 'Oh, word, true shit?'/Then ask if we could listen to Ludacris"
Probable Target: Ludacris
Early in Drake's career, he and Big Sean popularized a style of "hashtag" punchline, and Drake openly criticized older rappers for biting the style, specifically citing a Ludacris lyric. Ludacris dissed both Drake and Sean on the 2011 song "Bada Boom," which garnered no on-record response from either rapper at the time. So Drake raised eyebrows when his 2014 radio hit "How About Now" flashed back to his youth, and a girlfriend who'd rather listen to Ludacris than his own music. In 2015, Ludacris gave an interview with The Breakfast Club that shed a little light on the subject, saying that he'd slept with one of Drake's old Toronto girlfriends.
