It took him half a year, but Wale finally got the last word with fellow rapper Drake.

On Nov. 7, the Raptors dominated the Wizards from the opening tip in what Washington coach Randy Wittman called an "old-fashioned butt-whopping."

Drake, a Toronto native who is an official ambassador for the Raptors, was at the game. Afterwards he posted a photo on Instagram and tagged Wale, a big Wizards fan who is now an employee of the organization.

Wale didn't respond at the time, but he got all the ammunition he needed during the Wizards' impressive first-round sweep of the Raptors.


Wale, whose real name is Olubowale Victor Akintimehin, cleverly used a hashtag associated with Drake's album, "Nothing Was the Same," sometimes abbreviated as NWTS.


"Nothing Was the Same" isn't the only one of Drake's albums that Wale incorporated in his trolling. He also came up with a new take on Drake's most recent mixtape, "If You're Reading This It's Too Late."


Paul Pierce used the same message in a photo that he tweeted after the game:


After a shaky end to the regular season, Pierce re-emerged as a crucial player for Washington in the series sweep. He averaged 15.5 points-per-game on 58 percent shooting.

It's been a rough month for Drake, who has seen both of his basketball teams stumble against lower-ranked opponents. First, his undefeated Kentucky Wildcats fell to the Wisconsin Badgers in the Final Four. Then, the fourth-seeded Raptors couldn't even manage to win one game against the fifth-seeded Wizards.

Drake didn't respond directly to Wale or Pierce, but he did post this note to Instagram:
