Drake kicked the tension up a notch when he responded to Pusha T's "Infrared" diss with one of his own, taking a few bars to full-blown beef status with "Duppy Freestyle" merely hours after King Push put out the DAYTONA track that called him out.
The internet waited approximately 30 seconds before freaking out about the lyrical shots fired, with memes at the ready and plenty of shocked, impressed, amused and horrified feelings to share across social media.
Pusha T and other major players in hip-hop have weighed in on "Duppy Freestyle" already, but here's a handful of the best -- and goofiest -- responses to Drake's "Duppy Freestyle" posted in the wake of the track's premiere.
