Earlier today Future's tour DJ, Esco, dropped the remix to "Shit" featuring Drake and Juicy J. While Drake doesn't address Kendrick Lamar directly, Internet consensus is that the Toronto rapper takes aim at Compton's finest in his opening verse:
"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 don’t feed into the gossip
Niggas act like they don’t know but they should know
Yeah, I just think it’s funny how they danglin’ the bait
But I’m the one whose killin’ niggas on the hooks though"
This merry-go-round of words between the two stems from Kendrick Lamar's verse on "Control," where he named a number of his rap peers, including Drake, before spitting, "I got love for you all but I'm tryna murder you niggas/Trying to make sure your core fans never heard of you niggas." Drake would address Lamar's verse on "The Language," from his latest album Nothing Was The Same, as well as during his interview with Elliott Wilson for CRWN. “[Kendrick] is giving people moments but are you listening to it now, at this point in time?" he asked. "It was real cool for a couple weeks."
Not to be outdone, Kendrick fired back with some words of his own this past October during the BET Hip-Hop Awards Cypher. "Nothing's been the same since they dropped 'Control'/And tucked a sensitive rapper back in his pajama clothes," he rapped. Lamar also graced the cover of GQ in November and was asked about his friendship with Drake. He described their relationship as "cool" before stating, "I mean, I would be okay if we weren't."
And here we are today, with Drake allegedly throwing shade his way once again. The verse was evidently enough to provoke a response from Kendrick Lamar's camp on Twitter. TDE's CEO Anthony "Top Dawg" Tiffith gave his opinion regarding the situation while the company's President Terrence "Punch" Henderson laughed off Drake's verse.
