Atlanta rapper Future finally drops â€œSh*tâ€ Remix featuring Drake and Juicy J.Â Word in the streets is that Drakeâ€™s verse was aimed to take shots at Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar, once again escalating the beef between the two.
“And if a nigga say my name, he the hot shit
But if I say that nigga name he still the hot shit
Fucked up, lucky I donâ€™t feed into the gossip
Niggas act like they donâ€™t know but they should know
Yeah, I just think itâ€™s funny how they danglinâ€™ the bait
But Iâ€™m the one whose killinâ€™ niggas on the hooks though”
This hip-hop beef started after Kendrick Lamar called out multiple rappers in his song â€œControl.â€ When Drake first responded to the track he said, “It just sounded like an ambitious thought to me. That’s all it was. I know good and well that Kendrick’s not murdering me, at all, in any platform. So when that day presents itself, I guess we can revisit the topic.” [Billboard Interview]
As many other interviews were done, Drake also mentioned that he had lost respect for Kendrick after he heard “Control” and that it wasnâ€™t that memorable anyway:
“I almost wish he had come in there on that sh*t because I kind of lost a little bit of respect for the sentiment of the verse. If itâ€™s really â€˜f*ck everybodyâ€™ then it needs to be â€˜f*ck everybodyâ€™. It canâ€™t just be halfway.â€ [September Billboard Interview]
After hearing Drakeâ€™s responses, Kendrick came for Drake again in his BET Hip Hop Awards Cypher (October 15), playing with Drakeâ€™s album title “Nothing Was the Same”:
“Nothing’s been the same since they dropped ‘Control’ / And tucked the sensitive rapper back in his pajama clothes/Ha-ha, jokes on you / High-five, I’m bullet proof / Your shits will never penetrate / Pin the tail on the donkey, boy, you’ve been a fake.”
Will these two hip-hip icons ever squash the beef?Â Kendrick Lamar fires at Drake, Drake fires at Kendrick etc. Theyâ€™re both talented rappers and should give credit where itâ€™s due, but in their eyes, only one should be crowned the King of Hip-Hop!
After itâ€™s all said and done, who will walk away with the crown, Compton Kendrick or Canadian Drake?
