I would have to say that Ludacris is probably one of the more reserved rappers in the game. But when shots are fired, what's a man to do? In response to Drake and Big Sean's choice words via some recent interviews, Luda showed he could even with the diss track "Bada Boom" of his 1.21 Gigawatts mixtape.

Counterfeit rappers say I’m stealing their flows,
but I can’t steal what you never made up bitch
Y’all some duplicate rap cloning niggas
I manufacture you hoes put on your makeup Bitch
Let me explain, nothing’s been new since Big Daddy Kane
Flows will get recycled passed around to different names

And ya’ll get a couple hit records, make some noise and have the nerve to start shouting
Who’s gassing ‘em, they blowing smoke up your ass, you fired up but I’m just puff puff passin’ ‘em

May not like the way I use it but you know you aint invent it boy
Do your research before you make a claim so bogus

Ludacris doesn't say names, but it's pretty safe to say Drake and Big Sean are the intended targets. As far as Drake is concerned, in an interview with AllHipHop the Young Money rapper was asked about a certain style of rapping {super duper flow) that is becoming popular in the music industry where a punchline is finished with a word that fits. Example: It's goin' down. Basement (Nicki Minaj). Drake's response:
Well, that flow has been killed by so many rappers. And, I never want to use that flow again in life. [Laughs] I wanted to take if off my album, because I was like, “I shut ‘em down. Onyx.” I hate the fact that that rhyme is still in there. To be honest, that flow, you can trace it back to Big Sean. That’s the first guy I heard utilize that flow throughout the duration of a verse. I’'ll give him that credit. Those lines just all individually make so much sense. They’re all punchlines. Then a bunch of rappers started doing it and using the most terrible references in the world. I don’t want to offend somebody…I hate that rappers picked that flow up. I wish they had left that for people that know how to use it. [They go like] “It’s a parade! MACY’S!”
Everyone knows that Ludacris said that in his song "My Chick Bad". Now, on to Big Sean. He took a more daring approach actually name dropping in his MTV interview when asked about rappers who have jacked his style.
With the super duper flow, I created that one word rhyme style. Drake really made it more popular, but Drake gave me the credit and was like, ‘I really got that from Big Sean.’ I think some artists just did it so wack man. Every time I say names I get in trouble and it’s like I’m dissing, but some people used it wack. Don’t get it wrong I’m not trying to dis Ludacris or nothing. He’s a great MC. But even though that style got so overused, there was a lot of people who did it great and there was a lot of people who didn’t do it so great.
It all seems ridiculous to most of us, but in the rap game everyone has a point to prove. I guess.
