A lot has happened in rap in the last several hours.
Compton legend Dr. Dre dropped a new album on Apple Music to celebrate the impending release of “Straight Outta Compton” and Kendrick’s features on the album are getting lots of buzz because folks seem to think he may have went after Drake.
On the track “Darkside/Gone” Lamar raps: “But still I got enemies giving me energy, I wanna fight now/ subliminally sent to me all of this hate,” referencing Drake’s track “Energy,” which appeared on his recent mixtape If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.
Later, on the track “Deep Water,” the rapper incorporates Drake’s lyrics from “Started From The Bottom” and “6 God” into his verse: “Motherf—er know I started from the bottom /They liable to bury him, they nominated six to carry him/ They worrying him to death, but he’s no vegetarian/ The beef is on his breath, inheriting the drama better than/ A great white, n—-, this is life in my aquarium.”
We’re not so sure we see this as Drake shade but tell us where you stand.
In related news, one rapper who has made it very clear that he isn’t Team Drake may be opening up a little bit more about their differences.
During a freestyle at a recent performance, Meek Mill claims his beef with Drake may really have something to do with his girlfriend Nicki Minaj.
“See I don’t think it’s bout no rapping it’s about Nicki / He told us he was first in line but it got tricky / I still wake up with the lady that you said you first in line with
“See I represent the niggas the come from the bottom/If you started from that, make some f*cking noise / I said when I first seen my homie sitting in the casket / Is when I first went to get the ratchet / Sh*t is real, the f*ck Drake sent you to do me like Emmett Till / And I can smell death in the air and you the kill / When you was still out in the field toting them Glocks / Man he was still wheelchair Jimmy rolling them blocks / My momma’s used to holding Berettas when they is hot / Your momma used to peek out the window and call the cops / And the nerve of y’all n*ggas, saying you started from the bottom / When the real niggas dying, cops kill them, not a crime / All that bullsh*t you selling, real n*ggas never buy / Uh, I got word from the six, n*ggas say you testify”
