At the beginning of September in 2017, it came to light that budding Toronto rap group ScrapGang was at odds with Drake, Noah “40” Shebib, and Boi-1da.
After 40 left a disparaging remark on an SG social media channel – calling the trio waste youths – the group did a small media run to discuss the root of the issue.
By late October, they had released a diss track called “Death to OVO,” which fueled the issue even further, and made it crystal clear that they were going to stand their ground.
On podcasts like Secret Sauce World and We Love Hip Hop, ScrapGang accused Drake of biting their style, and pointed to Drake’s “Fake Love” and “Sneakin'” as the proof. The group claimed both songs were biting one of their first singles, “Only Option,” and accused Boi-1da of turning his back on them, and playing a role in their swag getting jacked.
There was definitely a good amount of chatter about the feud at that time, but for the most part the beef had fallen back into the shadows.
That is, until late Thursday when a screenshot of Drake and ScrapGang’s KG arguing was posted on the ScrapGang IG page (and a slightly longer version of the brief but heated exchange was posted to the ScrapGang IG story).
It was actually an Instagram story update dissing Drake that prompted the “God’s Plan” rapper to send a response, which you can see below.
It’s unclear if there was any further exchange between Drake and ScrapGang afterwards, via Instagram or any other medium. But the story is already getting picked up by some well-known channels, including Akademiks.
ScrapGang is currently promoting their latest video, “No Trust,” shot by EPROD, and featuring group members KG and Freeze. Click here to check it out.
Meanwhile, Drake has revealed that he’s preparing to release a new single Friday night. He made the announcement during Majid Jordan’s Thursday night show in Toronto.
