Sauce Walka, one member of the Houston duo the Sauce Twinz, wasn't happy upon seeing Drake's new "Hotline Bling" music video, believing that Drake was inappropriately trying to copy elements of the Sauce Twinz' "drip" style with his dance moves in the video. Walka happens to already be in conflict with Drake, though Drizzy hasn't officially acknowledged the beef -- unless, that is, he's indeed taking a shot at Walka by dancing in the "drip" style in his new video. In mid-September, Walka released a diss track aimed at Drake, "Wack 2 Wack," rapping over the same instrumental as "Back to Back," Drake's second Meek Mill-diss track, released at the end of July. On the song, Walka accused Drake of appropriating Houston culture as well as attempting to "drip" and calling the moves his own. At the beginning of the year, Drake posted an Instagram picture with the Sauce Twinz, Walka and Sancho Saucey, and, along with the picture, he hinted at a remix of "2 Legited 2 Quited," the Twinz' biggest hit at the time. Said remix never surfaced.

Earlier this month, Walka previewed an upcoming record with Meek Mill. Of course, Walka and Mill have one thing in common: they're beefing with Drake. The song's cover art shows an owl, likely a reference to Drake's OVO brand, further signaling that the collaboration might be another Drake diss. Soon after Drake put out the "Hotline Bling" video, Walka posted another preview of the song, titled "Winnin." In the short clip of the song, no lyrics implicating Drake can be heard.

In Walka's next Instagram, he posted a picture of a Twitter user calling Drake out for "dripping" in the "Hotline Bling" video. Walka clearly agrees, writing, "Ima let the ppl and the #Fanz expose this gay sh*t.. I don't have to say nothin anymore."

"Winnin" is apparently coming soon, so wait until then to see if Walka (and Meek) keeps coming at Drake.
"Hotline Bling" is currently at No. 2 on the Hot 100. If the video sends it to No. 1, it will be Drake's first No. 1 single as a lead artist. For what it's worth, Virginia rapper D.R.A.M. thinks the song is guilty of "jacking" his breakout hit, "Cha Cha."
