Mavado is coming for Drake on his new diss track “Enemy Line.”
Earlier this month, the 6 God dropped his “Only You Freestyle” with Headie One on which he seemingly took shots at the dancehall superstar by referencing Cassava Piece, Mavado’s hometown in Kingston, Jamaica.
“With Pop Skull in Gaza, but not that Gaza, but still it’s a mazza / Ni**as want peace like Cassava / But we let bridge dem burn like grabba,” Drizzy raps. “Four in the cliz and one in the headie / Hand no shake, man, hold that steady / You man love pose with the ting for the picture / You man shoulda buss dat ting already.”
According to HipHop-N-More, Drake and Mavado were reportedly working on a joint business venture, but the deal fell through, which Drake references with the “bridge dem burn” lyric.
Mavado, who appeared in Drake’s “Find Your Love” video, has now responded with his “Enemy Line” diss where he takes aim at Drake and Popcaan. “Tell soft and fake likkle sheep, like Mormon, die trying but you will never be a yard man,” raps the Gully God. He also references Drake’s recent vacation in Barbados (“Wait, yuh nuh see say dem head man fi buss, catch him pon a yacht bout dem a play Candy Crush”).
Along with the song, Mavado took to Instagram to address his rival and his appropriation of dancehall. “You are not from Dancehall,” he captioned his post. “You have no Power in Dancehall n everybody know who introduce you to Dancehall so don’t feel like you can come disrespect Gully take that out you brain n don’t dweet again.”
