Kendrick Lamar Says That He Has Nothing Against Drake
The media has been trying to blow up a supposed rift between Kendrick Lamar and Drake ever since Lamar dropped his “Control” verse and followed it with a stellar BET Hip Hop Awards cypher. Although neither Drake nor Lamar have said anything directly towards one another, the fact that they are two of the hottest rappers in the game has forced many to position them against one another.
Lamar decided to address the situation with New York radio station Power 105.1.
“I was having fun rapping,” he said. “We was just having fun. Hip Hop is a sport. People are gonna dissect lyrics and that’s what it’s about at the end of the day. I’ve got nothing against Drake. He put out a great album again. He’s doing his thing. He’s part of this new generation that’s doing this music.”
There, Kendrick finally said he has nothing against Drake. And, despite everyone asking Drake if he’s going to retaliate, Drake hasn’t said anything about Kendrick directly. So maybe we can put this nonsensical beef to bed?
