The ‘Drank’ hitmaker sounds like he’s taking a dig at the Canadian rapper, calling him “sensitive” in a hip-hop cypher – where a group of rappers take turns to rap over a beat – set to feature as part of the music ceremony when it airs later this month.
In a video teaser released online, Kendrick raps: “Yeah…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 s***s a never penetrate, pin the tail on the donkey boy you been a fake….”
Kendrick has a history of dissing Drake, as he took aim at the ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home’ rapper – among many others – during his controversial verse on Big Sean’s track ‘Control’ earlier this year, in which he said he would “murder” them lyrically.
Drake has since dismissed Kendrick’s bold claims on the highly debated track in a recent interview saying: “I didn’t really have anything to say about it. It just sounded like an ambitious thought to me, 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.”
