The beef between hip-hop stars Drake and Kendrick Lamar keeps heating up

The beef between hip-hop stars Drake and Kendrick Lamar keeps heating up. After the rappers released numerous diss tracks about each other in recent days, Drake dropped “The Heart Part 6” on May 5, in which he denied Lamar’s allegations that he likes underage girls and is hiding another child. (Drake is father to 6-year-old Adonis, though he initially denied reports he was the father before appearing to confirm his fatherhood 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.

The 5-minute-plus song is a reference to Lamar’s 2022 track “The Heart Part 5,” and calls out Lamar’s Pulitzer Prize, in addition to alleging Drake and his associates made up information about having a secret daughter for Lamar to use in a future song.

“We plotted for a week and then we fed you the information/ A daughter that’s 11 years old, I bet he takes it/ We thought about giving a fake name or a destination/ But you so thirsty, you not concerned with investigation,” Drake rapped.

Lamar has yet to respond as of publishing on May 6, but he previously released “Not Like Us” on May 4, which was Lamar’s fourth diss track aimed at Drake and the third released in less than 48 hours.

The track, which uses an uptempo beat produced by famed hip-hop producer DJ Mustard, can be described as another verbal attack against the Toronto rapper, with allegations of Drake allegedly grooming young women — seemingly accusing him of pedophilia.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.”

The West Coast rapper’s newest release came just hours after he posted “Meet the Grahams,” a response to Drake’s third diss track, “Family Matters.”

In “Meet the Grahams,” Kendrick appears to call out Drake for being a deadbeat dad, alleging he’s hiding another child, a daughter, from the world.

“You lied about your son, you lied about your daughter, huh, you lied about them other kids that’s out there hoping that you come,” he raps.

Lamar also takes shots at Drake’s family, and alleges the Toronto rapper had cosmetic surgery, rhyming in part, “Get some discipline, don’t cut them corners like your daddy did. F— what Ozempic did. Don’t pay to play with them Brazilians, get a gym membership.”

His track came just minutes after Drake dropped “Family Matters” on YouTube as a follow-up to Lamar’s “6:16 in LA” diss track, which was released May 3. In his response, Drake alleges Lamar’s relationship with fiancée Whitney Alford is riddled with abuse and infidelity.

“You the Black messiah wifing up a mixed queen/ And hit vanilla cream to help out with your self-esteem/ On some Bobby s—, I wanna know what Whitney need,” he spits, before later adding, “When you put your hands on your girl, is it self-defense ’cause she’s bigger than you?”

Drake and Kendrick Lamar did not respond to TODAY.com’s request for comment on May 4 on their specific diss tracks and what their songs allege.

Drake’s “Family Matters” came just days after Lamar released the track “Euphoria” late last week, which also targeted Drake, who, perhaps not coincidentally, happens to have served as an executive producer on the TV series “Euphoria.”

Lamar, who’s won a Pulitzer Prize for his music, bashed the more commercially successful Drake on the track, rapping, “I make music that electrify ’em, you make music that pacify ’em.”

Lamar’s initial diss track rappers were more like buddies than rivals, even collaborating and touring together. So what caused the rift between Drake and his one-time pal Lamar? Read on to learn a timeline of one of rap’s most enduring feuds.
