Kendrick Lamar is regarded as one of the greatest rappers of all time and became the first musician outside of the classical and jazz genres to earn a Pulitzer Prize for Music. Lamar’s music has included political criticism and social commentary, which, according to publications, have influenced a rise in social consciousness among people.

Time Magazine listed the musician as one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2016. Lamar’s concert tours—2017’s Drama Tour and 2022’s Big Steppers Tour—are regarded as the highest-grossing rap tours in history. Tupac Shakur has been the biggest influence on Kendrick Lamar, both personally and professionally. Lamar’s feud with Drake and J. Cole has garnered attention, and a recent claim by Akademiks notes that Lamar is coming for Drake.

Kendrick Lamar took a direct aim at Drake and J. Cole last month with his guest verse on Like That. The track features on the new Future and Metro Boomin’s album titled We Don’t Trust You, in which Lamar asserts that there are no ‘big three’ but it’s just big him.

Later in the verse, according to Variety, Lamar comes for the quality of the music, stating that his legacy is going to outweigh their influence. The humble musician compared himself with Prince while calling Drake Michael Jackson, noting that Prince outlived Michael Jackson.

This is not the first time Kendrick Lamar has stirred up controversy; back in 2013, he appeared on Big Sean’s Control, featuring Jay Electronica. Lamar ran down a list of rappers, mentioning that while he has love and respect for all of them, he sees them as competitors and intends to bring them down.

According to Rap-Up, a record surfaced online directing shots at Lamar, Future, Rick Ross, The Weeknd, and many more. The song online made fans wonder if it was real or AI-generated, as it seems like a response from Drake to Lamar’s Diss track. Drake promptly took a dig at Cole, who recently dropped a track in response to the diss track by Lamar and then decided to remove it. The song is titled Push Ups and Drake later seemingly confirmed the legitimacy of the track.
