UPDATED 5/4/24, 2:44 p.m. ET: A source close to Drake denies the rapper is hiding a daughter, an allegation Kendrick Lamar makes on "Meet The Grahams."

On Saturday, TMZ reported that a source told the outlet the claim is nothing but “utter fabrication.” The source added that K. Dot is now losing the battle, as he’s using false information as ammo.

Drake previously denied the claim on his Instagram Stories.

"Hold on can someone find my hidden daughter pls and send her to me ... these guys are in shambles," he wrote after Kendrick's latest diss track was released.

Kendrick Lamar fired off another diss track titled "Meet the Grahams" just minutes after Drake unleashed his explosive response "Family Matters."

On Friday night, as fans were just consuming the 6 God's fiery "Family Matters," Kendrick rained all over Drake's parade. The song has four verses and in each verse Kendrick speaks directly a member of Drake's family, starting with his son, Adonis, then his mother, his father, his alleged daughter, and finally Drake himself.

Graham, is, of course, Drake's last name.

The most shocking member of Drake's family that Kendrick talks to is a daughter that the Toronto megastar is allegedly hiding. Kendrick's wording suggests the girl is at least 11 years old.

Dear baby girl,
I'm sorry that your father not active inside your world
He don't commit to much but his music, yeah, that's for sure
He a narcissist, misogynist, livin' inside his songs
Try destroyin' families rather than takin' care of his own
Should be teachin' you time tables or watchin' Frozen with you
Or at your eleventh birthday singin' poems with you
Instead, he be in Turks payin' for sex and poppin' Percs, examples that you don't deserve
I wanna tell you that you're loved, you're brave, you're kind
You got a gift to change the world, and could change your father's mind
'Cause our children is the future, but he lives inside confusion
Money's always been illusion, but that's the life he's used to
His father prolly didn't claim him neither
History do repeats itself, sometimes it don't need a reason
But I would like to say it's not your fault that he's hidin' another child
Give him grace, this the reason I made Mr. Morale
So our babies like you can cope later
Give you some confidence to go through somethin', it's hope later
I never wanna hear you chase a man 'cause it's feral behavior

Drake, however, was confused about Kendrick's claims and took to IG to say that he has no idea what the Compton rapper is talking about.

"Hold on can someone find my hidden daughter pls and send her to me ... these guys are in shambles," he wrote, adding laughing emojis for good measure.

Beyond the daughter revelation, the artwork for "Meet the Grahams" is notable. It features the same Maybach gloves Kendrick used on "6:16 In LA," but the photo is more zoomed out and shows two bottles of pills, receipts, and other items that allegedly belong to Drake.

In the song's second verse, Kendrick talks to Drake's parents and attacks Drake's character, calling him a manipulator, a gambling addict, and compares him to Harvey Weinstein:

I'm blamin' you for all his gamblin' addictions
Psychopath intuition, the man that like to play victim
You raised a horrible fuckin' person, the nerve of you, Dennis
Sandra, sit down, what I'm about to say is heavy, now listen
Mm-mm, your son's a sick man with sick thoughts, I think n***as like him should die
Him and Weinstein should get fucked up in a cell for the rest their life
He hates Black women, hypersexualizes 'em with kinks of a nympho fetish
Grew facial hair because he understood bein' a beard just fit him better
He got sex offenders on ho-VO that he keep on a monthly allowance
A child should never be compromised and he keepin' his child around them

He ends that verse suggesting "The Embassy" (a nickname for Drake's house) will get raided soon.

Kendrick ends the song addressing Drake directly:

You got gamblin' problems, drinkin' problems, pill-poppin' and spendin' problems
Bad with money, whorehouse
Solicitin' women problems, therapy's a lovely start

Before Kendrick stole the show, Drake's "Family Matters" was picking up steam on social media. The 7-minute diss track finds Drake taking aim at Kendrick. He dropped off a music video where a maroon mini-van, a reference to the Dodge van on the cover of Kendrick's 2012 major label debut album, good kid, m.A.A.c city, gets destroyed at a junkyard.

The song itself finds Drake dishing out several bars to K.Dot in which he claims that he beat his wife, cheated on her, and his longtime friend Dave Free might be the father to one of his children.

"You the black messiah wifin' up a mixed queen/And hit vanilla cream to help out with your self-esteem/On some Bobby shit I wanna know what Whitney need," Drake raps on the diss track. "They hired a crisis management team to clean up the fact that you beat on your queen/The picture you painted ain't what it seems."

Kendrick wasn't the only one who got dissed on the song. Drizzy also fired a round of shots at The Weeknd, Future, Metro Boomin, Rick Ross, and A$AP Rocky.
