Drake late last night (April 1) dropped new song “Draft Day,” an odd little nugget that features a loooped sample of Lauryn Hill‘s 1998 hit “Doo-Wop (That Thing).” The playful, boastful track contains a host of references to young celebs like Jennifer Lawrence, Chance The Rapper and his pal NFL prospect Johnny Manziel, and in addition to a line about Drizzy trying raw oysters for the first time, it also might contain his response to a recent diss.

In Jay Z and Jay Electronica‘s “We Made It” remix, Hov of course rapped, “Sorry Mrs. Drizzy, for so much art talk / Silly me rappin’ ’bout shit that I really bought / Why these rappers rap about guns they ain’t shot? / And a bunch of other silly shit that they ain’t got?” In this new song, Drake may be offering up a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it rejoinder, saying, “Just hits, no misses/That’s for the married folks.”
