Did Jay Z Just Call Drake "Soft As a Lacrosse Team"?

Hip hop has been marked by intergenerational warfare since Kool Moe Dee battled Busy Bee. And although Jay Z once credited Drake as one of the best artists on the rise and was featured on both Thank Me Later and Nothing Was the Same, lately, he's been steady taking shots at the OVO head on record — while Drake gives him the side-eye via the media.

It all began back in February, when Drake told Rolling Stone, "It's like Hov can't drop bars these days without at least four art references!" The comments prompted Jay to fire back on Jay Electronica's remix of "We Made It." And then Drake said something at a Nets/Raptors game about Hov being somewhere "eating fondue." Now, Hov has only these words, via a feature on DJ Khaled's new song, "They Don't Love You No More": "Haters wanna ball, let me tighten up my drawstring/Wrong sport, boy, you know you're soft as a lacrosse team." 

Will Drizzy ever get on the mic for this one? Only time will tell. Meanwhile, read on to see more intergenerational hip hop beefs.
