And so the saga continues.

On Friday, rapper Sexyy Red released a new mixtape featuring a collaboration with Drake, on which the Toronto rapper makes lighthearted reference to his ongoing feud with Kendrick Lamar and a host of other hip hop artists.

Midway through Drake’s verse on the song, titled “U My Everything,” the beat flips to “BBL Drizzy” — an instrumental diss track that producer Metro Boomin shared on social media earlier this month, along with an open call for fans to create their own diss tracks over the beat.

The track — which alludes to a rumour started by Rick Ross that Drake had a Brazilian butt lift — became a viral sensation, with rappers and musicians around the globe hopping on the beat to take shots at Drake.

“Me and the surgeon got history / I changed a lot of girls’ lives for real,” Drake raps on “U My Everything,” a clever — if sexist — flip on the plastic surgery rumours that have haunted him all spring. “They need a new body, they hittin’ me, ayy / BBL Drizzy, they want a new body, they ask me for it.”

Notably, Drake does mention Lamar, who emerged as his main nemesis in recent weeks. Indeed, arriving after a three week détente, his tongue-in-cheek acknowledgement of the feud feels like a significant de-escalation in a feud that started out fun but quickly turned ugly.

The feud between the two megastars started when Lamar declared himself the world’s best rapper on the Future and Metro Boomin song “Like That.”

Since then, the rappers have been making serious, if unsubstantiated claims against each other in a series of diss tracks that consumed the internet.

On May 7, a security guard suffered life-threatening injuries after being shot outside Drake’s Toronto mansion. Police have not said if they believe the shooting was linked to the feud.

Earlier this month, Lamar’s “Not Like Us” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart.

Here’s a look at some of the reaction on social media to Drake’s appearance on “U My Everything”:
