According to ESPN’s Marcellus Wiley, the beef between Drake and Kendrick Lamar started because one of the rappers took shots at the other in an unreleased interview.

During an episode of Max & Marcellus, Wiley spoke about the supposed clash. He said:
I can’t say what I wanna say, but I’m gonna say it anyways, because my contract is up and this might give me more money. All I know is there was a beef, and all I know is I was witness to when the beef would have ignited to proportions we have not seen since Ja Rule/50, maybe even Ice Cube/N.W.A.
They went there. But that was destroyed from everyone’s property. That was destroyed, that interview, that moment was destroyed. That’s all I’m gonna say. But I was there and I heard the shots fired…
It was one-sided, and the other side was about to retaliate if that would’ve got out, but they destroyed the evidence. And I ain’t lying.
Wiley would not confirm which rapper’s team made sure the purported interview was never released. The former NFL player also refused to provide any more details about the alleged situation.
