Drake and Mavado were good friends, with the latter even appearing in Drizzy's 'Find Your Love' music video back in 2010, but it appears their friendship has soured.

So why is Mavado dissing Drake on 'Enemy Line' and when did this all start? We break down exactly what's going on below...

Why is Mavado dissing Drake on 'Enemy Line'?

According to many claims on social media, some of the lyrics in Drake's 'Only You Freestyle' with Headie One were aimed at Mavado.

In particular, the Canadian rapper appears to mention the area in Jamaica where Mavado is from, rapping:

With Pop Skull in Gaza, but not that Gaza, but still it's a mazza
N***as want peace like Cassava
But we let bridge dem burn like grabba
Four in the cliz and one in the headie
Hand no shake, man, hold that steady
You man love pose with the ting for the picture
You man shoulda buss dat ting already
You man love hezi', hezi'
Yeah can't back chat to the prezi'
Know when the beef just taste like veggie

The lyrics may not mean much to some people, but Mavado fans quickly suggested that they were a diss aimed at the Jamaican star.

Mavado is from an area in Kingston called Cassava Piece, something which Drake appears to reference in the lyrics above.

It's also reported that Drizzy and Mavado had a joint business venture that didn't work out, which could be a reason why he "let the bridge burn".

In an Instagram posting about 'Enemy Line', Mavado wrote;
