Another day, another beef involving Drake.

This time, the feud involves not Kendrick Lamar, but Metro Boomin.

Here's what "BBL Drizzy" means and what it has to do with Drake.

As fans know, Drizzy is one of Drake's nicknames.

The song "BBL Drizzy" was first created by King Willonius, who is a comedian, and it's a commentary on how Drake allegedly got a Brazilian butt lift, ergo the BBL reference.

From there, Metro sampled a beat and then took to X to announce a giveaway to the person who submits the best verse to go along with it.

But this was far from the producer's only jab at the controversial rapper, who previously dissed Metro (and many others) on his own track, "Push Ups" per Vox.

Metro Boomin soon bombed X with disses toward Drake, accusing him of racism, and also alleging that he is gay.

The barrage of tweets included a photo of Drake in blackface, and a video that shows him wearing nail polish and hugging a man.

Soon, Drake responded to the posts, but what he said may surprise some fans, as the "Hotline Bling" rapper seemingly isn't giving Metro the satisfaction of getting too deep into the whole issue.

Drake seemingly isn't getting too deep into the "BBL Drizzy" drama at this time.

Although Drake is not one to back down from beefs with other rappers, at time of writing, he had just one comment about the contest and influx of highly unflattering tweets about him.

Indeed, he simply said, "You just cheffed a beat about my a--?"

Perhaps the most entertaining aspect of this beef — other than Drake's hilarious, low-key response — is fan posts.

"BBL Drizzy" has turned into a TikTok challenge.

The contest has turned into a challenge on TikTok, with floods of creators making verses as asked and sharing them on the platform.

"Even people who don't have a stake in the battle are battling for a free beat," joked @charliecurtisb.

"The diss just crossed genres and I'm crying," said someone commenting on a guitar solo submission on TikTok shared by a creator who posts content using the handle @lucasss_i.

We're not sure where all of this will lead with the ongoing Drake-versus-everyone drama, but we'll be sure to keep you posted. In the meantime, it's worth mentioning that Kendrick has not weighed in on what's going on via his social channels.

As he previously told The New York Times, "My social media, most of the time, is completely off." He went on to elaborate, "Like, I’m not one of those dudes that be like, 'Oh, yeah, I know how good I am,' but I also know the reason why I’m so good is because God’s blessed me with the talent to execute on the talent, and the moment that you start getting lost in your ego, that’s when you start going down."
