    Okay just to keep things straight, the order of releases is as follows. “Euphoria” followed by “616 in LA”

    Then Drake’s “Family Matters” … released on May 4th

    “Meet the grahams” dropped 30 minutes after Family Matters.

    And now… the next one from Kendrick… “Not Like Us”

    He directly calls Drake a pedo in this one. I honestly think that this could be the end of Drake’s career.

    Kendrick Lamar is also positioning himself as the best rapper of all time, in my opinion. He is setting himself up as a role model, cultural icon, and voice of a generation. He could be inspiring changes across the entirety of hip-hop as a genre if this continues along this path.

    It went from being a beef to being much more than a beef.

    Drake is weak. Kendrick Lamar has this in the bag. How do you come back from being called a pedo and a colonizer by Kendrick Lamar, with such velocity and directness? And when you respond with some weak stuff like this, all it does it make Kendrick’s argument stronger.

    No wonder Kendrick has kept quiet and not dropped another yet. Drake writhing in pain over there. Especially because Drake has had plenty of rumors circling about him that many choose to ignore because they like his music and it’s hard to believe that an “artist” you like could be a bad person.

    People are saying that “The Heart Part 6” is the first one to drop where Drake didn’t use his ghostwriters. I’d have to agree with that one.

    Kendrick Lamar the GOAT. Drake is a bitch!

    The song releasing part of the beef appears to be over (possibly?), and Kendrick Lamar has been declared the winner. But now there is some stuff going on in the aftermath. Some of it is amusing, some of it is kind of scary.

    For the amusing part, here is something I found on Reddit. People were accusing Kendrick of farming lines from “Not Like Us” from Tweets. Corn on Twitter points out that this is pretty ironic:

    Drake Security Guard Shot

    In more concerning news, Drake’s security guard was shot outside of his home in Toronto. It’s not clear whether or not this is related to the beef. Here is the news, from Stereogum (my favorite independent music blog):

    Drake’s Security Guard Shot Outside Rapper’s Toronto Mansion

    EbonyPrince2k24 Tweets

    There is also a Twitter account called EbonyPrince2k24 that claims to be a Hotel employee who found some items that Drake left behind in the hotel one night in the lost and found… his Tweets are pretty cryptic and I won’t try to make sense of them… see it for yourself here.

    Overall there seems to be a lot stemming from this beef and I don’t believe it’s fully over yet… I don’t know if this EbonyPrince person has anything real or if they are just looking to stir up controversy … I’m just watching and sharing my findings for anyone who is curious about the Kendrick vs Drake beef

    Streaming Kendrick Lamar’s “The Pop Out: Ken & Friends” at the Forum in LA right now. Free on Amazon Prime. He just brought out Dr. Dre and did “Still D.R.E.” and 2pac’s “California Love” and then Dr. Dre said “I see dead people” to introduce “Not Like Us.” Kendrick did the “certified lover boy — certified pedophile” / “tryina strike a chord and it’s probably A-Minor” verse three times and then did the full song.

    What a wild experience it must be to be at this show. He’s also brought out tons of other special guests including Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, J. Rock, and more.

    This is really sick. And all these rappers are co-signing “Not Like Us” indirectly by being part of this event.

    Kendrick Lamar is in my opinion cementing himself as one of the greatest rappers of all time, if not the single greatest.

    Update: He did “Not Like Us” a fourth time

    Update 2: Five times

    Here is the setlist (from Reddit):

    1. euphoria
    2. DNA
    3. ELEMENT
    4. Alright
    5. Swimming Pools (Drank)
    6. Money Trees (ft. Jay Rock)
    7. WIN – Jay Rock
    8. King’s Dead
    9. 6:16 in LA
    10. Collard Greens – ScHoolboy Q
    11. That Part – ScHoolboy Q
    12. King Kunta
    13. m.A.A.d city
    14. HUMBLE
    15. Like That
    16. Still D.R.E. – Dr. Dre
    17. California Love
    18. Not Like Usx5

    Here’s a theory: Tyler, The Creator dropped off Lollapalooza (8/1 to 8/3) and Outside Lands (8/9 to 8/11) the morning after this show.

    Given the success of Kendrick’s show last night, I would not be surprised to see an announcement from the Kendrick Lamar camp that includes Tyler around that time.

    Here’s an article from ABC documenting the whole thing: https://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/wireStory/after-drake-battle-kendrick-lamar-turns-victory-lap-111267244

    And a quote from the article: 

    “Let the world see this,” he said. “You ain’t seen this many sections on one stage keeping it together and having peace. … For all of us to be on this stage together, unity, from East side … LA, Crips, Bloods, Piru — this … is special, man. We put this … together just for ya’ll.

    “This … ain’t got nothing to do with no song at this point, ain’t got nothing to do with no back and forth records, it’s got everything to do with this moment right here. That’s what this … was about, to bring all of us together.”

    After the final song, Lamar exited, saying “I promise you this won’t be the last of us.” The stabbing horns of the “Not Like Us” instrumental kicked in once again and the crowd rapped the lyrics without Lamar as they filed through hallways out to the parking lot. The Twitch and Prime Video livestream concluded.
