Did Kendrick Lamar Diss Drake on Compton ?

Did Kendrick Lamar Diss Drake on Compton ?

After a few listens, K. Dot might be sending a message.

Published August 7, 2015

Dr. Dre’s Compton: A Soundtrack has been all anyone can talk about in the last 24 hours since it was available for streaming last night.

Kendrick Lamar is heavily featured on the project, specifically on “Genocide,” “Darkside / Gone” and “Deep Water.” After a few listens, K. Dot might be throwing some shots at his former foe, Drake.

The two MCs have been at odds with one another ever since K. Dot called out Drizzy on 2013's "Control” and furthered the feud at that year’s BET Hip Hop Awards. From there, the Toronto rapper responded with “The Language,” but cooled things down when he spoke highly of Kendrick at last year’s OVO Fest, calling him “legendary.”


After a few months of silence, Kendrick took another subliminal shot at Drake on Jay Rock’s "Pay for It,” rapping, “Been dissecting your motormouth until I break down the engine / See my opponent then, cease your existence / Endin’ our friendship, baby, I’d rather die alone.” Shortly after, we heard more lyrics from Drake directed at Kendrick on his album If You’re Reading This It's Too Late, on tracks “Used To and “6 PM in New York.”

Now, it seems K. Dot is firing back with more, referencing "Energy" lyrics, 6 God nicknames and questioning whether Drake really started from the bottom. Peep these lyrics:

“But still I got enemies giving me energy I wanna fight now / Subliminally sent to me all of this hate / I thought I was holding the mic down...” — “Darkside/Gone”

“Motherf**ker know I started from the bottom … they liable to bury him, they nominated six to carry him / They worrying him to death, but he’s no vegetarian / The beef is on his breath, inheriting the drama better than / A great white, n***a, this is life in my aquarium.” — “Deep Water”

Drake’s been in a fighting mood lately, dominating Meek Mill with diss tracks "Charged Up" and "Back to Back." Maybe Kendrick is next?
