Rick Ross went to war with Drake on wax and he didn't pull any punches.

2024 has been a messy year. The cold war between Drake and the rest of the hip-hop world went nuclear after Kendrick Lamar's "Like That" diss, and since then it's been open season on the 6 God. Future, Metro Boomin, The Weeknd and ASAP Rocky have all taken aim at Drake, but the rapper that has most hip-hop fans conflicted is Rick Ross. Drake and Ross have made classic records together for over a decade. Ross' new single, however, makes it clear that they will be enemies from now on.

Ross teased the track "Champagne Moments" during a DJ Akademiks live stream on April 13, but it's now available on streaming platforms with beefed up drums and artwork with the hashtag "#BBLDrizzy." The rapper furthered the disrespect by tagging Birdman and OVO Records when he posted the song on Instagram. The beat for "Champagne Moments" is classic Rick Ross, with lush strings and a mafioso vibe that suits the rapper's husky flow. Ross accuses Drake of ripping off Lil Wayne's style, and claims the Toronto rapper needed a Maybach Music co-sign to bolster his credibility.

Rick Ross Rebrands Drake As "BBLDrizzy"

These points are debatable, especially since Drake has been featured on all of Ross' biggest hits, but the thing that will keep fans buzzing about "Champagne Moments" is the outro. He claims that Drake got a nose job and cosmetic surgery throughout his body. Ross also goes after Drake's perceived "blackness," or lack their-of, which has been a talking point since Drake first blew up. Ross doesn't destroy Drake, but he does pick at a few scabs, and the production is solid.

Quotable Lyrics:

Always ran, another n***a had to write your grooves
Flow is copy-and-paste, Weezy gave you the juice
Another white boy at the park wanna hang with the crew
Pulitzer Prize winner switchin' up like dyed denim
Got incentives for all the killings while we ride rentals
Look me right in my face, he beginning to shake
