Kendrick Lamar Fires Shots At “Donkey” Drake
It’s no secret that Drake is a sensitive artist, and it’s also no secret that Kendrick Lamar hurt his feelings when he took a playful jab at him on Big Sean’s “Control.”
On the song, Kendrick warned several rappers, Drizzy included, that he would steal their fans if they didn’t step up their rap game. Drake responded to the verse by releasing an r&b album and saying in several radio interviews that he would no longer work with Kendrick.
“He’s talented as f*ck,” Drake said about his rival during a chat with LA radio station, Power 106. “He’s gonna have another album and another opportunity to take the world by storm again. So, he’ll be alright. Even if it doesn’t feature any of the names he mentioned, which it probably won’t, to be honest with you. I don’t know who’s gonna go back from that and be like, ‘Yeah, let’s link up.’”
This past weekend at the BET Hip-Hop Awards (which air later this month), Kendrick fired another shot at Drake during the show’s cypher round. “And nothing’s been the same since they dropped ‘Control’/And tucked a sensitive rapper back in his pajama clothes/Ha-ha, jokes on you. High-five. I’m bulletproof. Your bullets will never penetrate. Pin the tail on the donkey, boy you been a fake.”
If Drake was feeling salty towards Kendrick before, the level of disdain is probably irreparable now. What do you think? Will Drake respond or just continue to vent his frustrations in radio interviews?
