Even Erykah Badu is urging Drake to respond to Kendrick Lamar’s disses with a few of his own.
Kendrick challenged Drake and a litany of other rappers to up their lyrical game on a controversial verse heard on Big Sean’s “Control.” Drake is considered by many to be one of the few artists lyrically inclined enough to take up the challenge; but instead of doing so, the Canadian singer responded by releasing an r&b album and expressing in several radio interviews that his feelings were hurt by Kendrick’s action.
The situation became exacerbated after Kendrick dissed Drake again during a cypher round at the BET Hip-Hop Awards. Now, Erykah Badu, who performed with K-Dot at the BET Awards (the other one) earlier this summer, is sending Drake a message:
“Drake, u gotta come-back boy … This HipHop,” Badu tweeted.
True story. You do have to come back, Drake. Kendrick isn’t some little scrub rapper calling you out for attention or for record sales. He wants hip-hop’s throne and the only person standing in the way of that is you. By calling you out, and you responding to it by singing about ex-girlfriends, Kendrick is showing the world you’re unworthy of a seat at hip-hop’s royal table. It’s your move, Drizzy.
