Drake responds to Kendrick Lamar's 'Like That' disses

Following the release of Metro Boomin and Future’s latest track, ‘I Know’ on which Kendrick Lamar sends indirect shots at Drake and J Cole, the former has publicly addressed the lyrics aimed at him by the Compton native.

During a recent performance in Florida on his Big As the What? Tour, Drake (real name Aubrey Graham) openly exclaimed, “A lot of people ask me how I’m feeling… I’m a let you know I’m feeling. Listen, the same way I’m feeling is the same way I want you to walk out this building tonight.”

He continued, “I got my fucking head up high, my back straight, I’m 10 fucking toes down in Florida and anywhere else I go,” he added, his voice growing louder and more aggressive. “And I know that no matter what, there’s not a n*gga on this Earth that could ever fuck with me in my life!”

On ‘Like That’, Kendrick Lamar references Graham and Cole’s most recent collaboration, ‘First Person Shooter’, rapping: “Yeah, get up with me/ Fuck sneak dissin’, first-person shooter/ I hope they came with three switches.”

He also laughed off and dismissed the idea that J Cole and Drake are on his level lyrically as part of the top three, elaborating, “Think I won’t drop the location? I still got PTSD/ Muthafuck the big three, n*gga, it’s just big me.”

Kendrick also made reference to Drizzy’s album For All the Dogs: “N-gga, bum, ‘fore all your dogs gettin’ buried / That’s a K with all these nines, he gon’ see Pet Sematary.” He also tore to shreds the idea that Drake has reached the same level of stardom Michael Jackson had during his prime and compared himself to Prince, rapping, “N*gga, Prince outlived Mike Jack.”

Fans rarely see Lamar engaged in any sort of beef or competition. However, it seems that following the release of his 2022 project Mr Morales & The Big Steppers, the LA rhymer has returned with a new sense of Vim. 

However, Drake’s response could see the start of a battle between Lamar, Cole and himself. All three are hailed as the best of contemporary hip-hop, but it seems that Lamar wants the top spot.
