Diss tracks are a timeless art. Since the birth of hip-hop on the streets of New York, rappers have challenged their opponents with rhymes of the dirty dozens variety to not only assert their dominance in the genre but to prove themselves lyrically.

Drake is back in the news again for his latest record, “Two Birds One Stone,” which he aired on his OVO Radio show through Apple Music a few days ago. The track, scheduled to appear on his upcoming More Life project, takes a stab at Kid Cudi – who recently checked into rehab for his years-long battle with depression and suicidal thoughts.

“You were the man on the moon/Now you just go through your phases/Life of the angry and famous/Rap like I know I’m the greatest/Then give you the tropical flavors/Still never been on hiatus/You stay xanned and perced up” – “Two Birds One Stone” – Drake
