With kickoff of his Summer Sixteen tour with Future, Drake could have just performed his songs as we’ve come to know them, but what fun would that be? he had to add subliminal shots.
And that’s where this clip of his “Summer Sixteen” performance in Austin comes in. In it, he switches his lyrics from “All you boys in the new Toronto want to be me a little,” to “All you boys doing fake ‘Controlla’ want to be me a little.”
When “Summer Sixteen” came out back in January, there was already speculation that it was about Tory Lanez, who had been poking at Drake for some time — saying things like that the term “the 6” was “not cool” and had dropped a mixtape called The New Toronto.
Still, the line swap seems even more pointed given Tory’s remix earlier this month of Drake’s “Controlla.”
