Drake, everyone’s favorite sports groupie, couldn't help take, yet, another dig at Jay Z during yesterday’s NBA playoff game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Toronto Raptors. 

Here’s the direct "slam": "This is the people's team out here tonight, you know what I mean, Toronto Raptors.” Adding "Jay Z's somewhere eating a fondue plate."

"It's our time, and we gotta keep it competitive," Drizzy said while being interviewed by sports commentators about his hometown’s team first playoff game since 2008. "It's an ironic matchup."

He didn’t clarify why the Raptors vs. the Nets was ironic, but perhaps he was referring to Jay Z’s previous affiliation with the Nets, as he once held ownership stake with the Brooklyn NBA team.

The last time Drizzy called out Jay Z for being bourgeois (though is fondue all that chichi?) was in a Rolling Stone interview in which he said:

"It's like Hov can't drop bars these days without at least four art references!" he says. "I would love to collect at some point, but I think the whole rap/art world thing is getting kind of corny."

Jay Z responded by collaborating with a verse on Jay Electronica's remix of Drake and Soulja Boy's "We Made It."

In it, Hov raps: "Sorry Mr. Drizzy for so much art talk/ Silly me rappin' 'bout sh-t that I really bought/ Why these rappers rap about guns they ain't shot?/ And a bunch of other silly sh-t that they ain't got."

We’re almost sure Hov won’t keep quiet about this latest put down. A fondue verse has to be in the works by now, right? 50 Cent was right though, this beef is just getting started.
