Drake has a new beef ... with President Obama

It's a pretty one-sided beef, not surprisingly.

Canadian rapper Drake just loves making enemies -- and this time, he's going after the Commander in Chief of the United States.

Drake has gotten into a number of high-profile feuds lately, the latest being with rapper Meek Mill, which has been going on for months on Twitter, according to a Washington Post report.

Drake released "Summer Sixteen" on Saturday, and it's filled with tons of knocks on Meek, who responded with his own diss track. But it was another individual that Drake went after in the song that raised some eyebrows.

"Tell Obama that my verses are just like the whips that he in," he raps. "They bulletproof."

Clearly, Drake was stung by comments Obama made back during an interview with famous YouTubers a couple weeks ago when he was asked who would win in a rap battle, Drake or Kendrick Lamar. Obama went with Kendrick, saying that while he found Drake to be a good entainer, Kendrick's lyrics were outstanding.

That's not exactly a scorched earth answer, but Drake felt it had to be address in his newest song. Obviously, Drake doesn't have the thickest of skins, and is frequently seen going after other entertainers over perceived slights. Drake is angry at Meek because Meek claimed Drake used a ghostwriter.

Undoubtedly, it won't take much to squash this beef with Obama. After all, Drake has indicated he's admired Obama in the past, and in 2012 said he would like to play Obama in a movie about his life.
