Drake's New Diss Track 'Summer Sixteen' Comes For Everyone From Meek Mill To Barack Obama

Even Barack Obama got a hit!

Drake released his first single from his new album, "Views From the 6" last night, and no one was spared.

The track, "Summer Sixteen," lines up diss after diss aimed at his "enemies," some we're familiar with and some that came from the wayside.

He's say's he's "out here looking for revenge" on the chorus, and Drake doesn't seem shy about getting it. Needless to say, Drake fans were knocked off their feet by line after line of shade.

Listeners who tuned into his show on Apple's Beats 1, "OVO Sound Radio", got to hear the release first. The rapper calls out everyone from Meek Mill to Jay-Z to Kanye West to the President of the U.S. himself.

The beef between Drake and Meek Mill is old news by now, but his jab at President Barack Obama comes from fresh material — namely, the Prez picking Kendrick Lamar over Drake in an interview (we'll assume it was national loyalty).

And Drake also pokes some fun at Jay-Z and Kanye, saying he's risen to their level: "I used to wanna be on Roc-A-Fella, then I turned into Jay / Now I got a house in LA / Now I got a bigger pool than Ye / and look man, Ye’s pool is nice / Mine's just big is what I'm saying."

Since we know you were wondering, this is what Drake's pool looks like:

He's also stirring up some Toronto pride ahead of the summer with an album named for the 6ix and dropping this April — you know, 4-1-6, A.K.A. one of the city's area codes.

Blue Jays player Marcus Stroman seems to agree, Toronto will be the place to be this summer sixteen.
