Drake and Kendrick Lamar’s feud heats up again

The longstanding rivalry between Drake and Kendrick Lamar, two of the most influential figures in modern hip-hop, has been reignited in the public eye. This time, it’s not merely about who has the better bars or album sales but a series of incendiary accusations and vehement denials that have pushed their feud into uncharted territory.

Kendrick Lamar allegedly accusing Drake of inappropriate behavior, even going so far as to claim that Drake was hiding a secret daughter. Such grave accusations shocked both artists’ fans and immediately ignited a flurry of speculation online. Lamar’s allegations suggested that Drake, despite his polished public image, may have been involved in unsavory activities, including engaging in pedophilic behavior.

“Say, Drake, I hear you like ‘em young/ You better not ever go to cell block one,” Lamar rhymes, before later referencing Drake’s 2021 album, “Certified Lover Boy,” by saying, “Certified Lover Boy? Certified pedophiles.”

On May 5, Drake released “The Heart Part 6,” where he refuted Lamar’s claims about his alleged interest in underage girls and concealing a second child. Drake, who is the father of his 6-year-old son Adonis, initially denied fatherhood before seemingly acknowledging it on his 2018 album “Scorpion.”

“Speakin’ of anything with a child, let’s get to that now/ This Epstein angle was the s— I expected/ TikTok videos you collected and dissected/ Instead of being on some dis-direct s—, you rather f—— grab your pen and misdirect s—,” Drake rapped on the track.

As of the publication, Lamar has not yet responded, but he previously dropped “Not Like Us” on May 4, marking his fourth diss track targeting Drake.
