Kanye West Enters Drake, J. Cole, and Kendrick Lamar Feud

Kanye West has joined the ongoing feud between Drake, J. Cole, and Kendrick Lamar, adding fuel to the fire that has been burning since last year. The tension began when Cole referred to the trio as “the big three,” a label that Lamar vehemently rejected.

In a remix of Lamar, Future, and Metro Boomin’s song “Like That,” West took aim at Drake, criticising his lyrical content and his record deal with Universal Music. He implied that Drake had sold the rights to his music for a meagre sum, expressing pity for the rapper.

Premiering the remix on Justin Laboy’s radio show “The Download,” West opened with a line referencing Lamar’s nickname, K-Dot. While only a snippet of the song was played initially, a fuller version later surfaced online, although its authenticity remains uncertain.

The animosity between West and Drake dates back to a dispute over a beat in 2018, culminating in a controversial song by Pusha T (produced by West) that revealed the existence of Drake’s son, Adonis.

The feud escalated last year with the release of Drake and J. Cole’s collaboration “First Person Shooter,” where the “big three” contention originated. Lamar responded with a scathing verse on “Like That,” asserting his dominance and dismissing Drake and Cole’s lyrical prowess.

Cole retaliated with his own track, “7 Minute Drill,” criticising Lamar’s recent album and suggesting he had “fallen off.” While Cole later expressed regret and appeared to back out of the feud, Drake intensified his attacks with a song called “Push Ups (Drop and Give Me 50),” questioning Lamar’s stature in the music industry.

Drake continued to provoke Lamar in his latest track, “Taylor Made Freestyle,” insinuating that Lamar was avoiding the feud to align with Taylor Swift and avoid overshadowing her album release.

The feud has garnered attention, with both “Like That” and “Push Ups” ranking among the Top 40 most-played songs on Spotify. Despite the drama, Lamar remains unresponsive, while Drake seems determined to keep the feud alive.
