There are a number of highlights in Lamar's "Like That" feature that take shots at Drake such as, "Motherf--k the big three, n---a, it's just big me" and "'Fore all your dogs gettin' buried/ that's a K with all these nines, he gon' see Pet Sematary" (Drake's most recent album is titled For All the Dogs.)  Kendrick Lamar, 6:16 in LA


There are a number of highlights in Lamar's "Like That" feature that take shots at Drake such as, "Motherf--k the big three, n---a, it's just big me" and "'Fore all your dogs gettin' buried/ that's a K with all these nines, he gon' see Pet Sematary" (Drake's most recent album is titled For All the Dogs.) 

But it's when Lamar raps, "Your best work is a light pack/ n---a, Prince outlived Mike Jack," that he draws an interesting comparison between two iconic artists. Drake is a longtime fan of Michael Jackson: he's referenced Jackson in several songs, tied some of his Billboard records, and included a posthumous Jackson feature on his track "Don't Matter to Me." 

Michael Jackson and Prince famously feuded for decades, so by Lamar comparing himself to Prince and likening Drake to Jackson, he positioned himself not only as Drake's artistic rival, but also a personal one.

On Apr. 19, Drake fired back with "Push Ups," responding to several artists including Rick Ross, the Weeknd and Metro Boomin. However, he saved his funniest lyrical barbs for Lamar:

Hours after releasing "Push Ups," Drake dropped another diss track. On "Taylor Made Freestyle," he used AI voices of West Coast hip-hop titans Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur to rap lyrics encouraging Lamar to fight back. Some of the lyrics spotlight Lamar's Compton, Calif., heritage while calling him out: "Kendrick, we need ya, the West Coast saviour/ engraving your name in some hip-hop history."

After receiving a cease-and-desist letter from Shakur's estate, the song was removed from Drake's social media channels.

The entirety of Lamar's Apr. 30 response track, "Euphoria" was directed at Drake, with Lamar mocking everything from Drake's lack of parenting skills to his fashion sense. While there are numerous cutthroat lines, some of the most memorable moments on the song are:

Drake responded to "Euphoria" by making fun of it on Instagram, but before he had a chance to reply in song, Lamar released a follow-up diss track on May 3. The song's title "6:16 in LA" is a play on Drake's many timestamp diss tracks such as "7am on Bridle Path" and "4PM in Calabasas." Fans have also theorized that the title is also stands for Jun. 16, which is Tupac Shakur's birthday, and Father's Day. 

The track was also co-produced by Jack Antonoff, who is one of Taylor Swift's most frequent collaborators, signaling that Antonoff may not have appreciated Drake namedropping Swift on "Taylor Made Freestyle" or dissing Lamar on "Push Ups" for collaborating with Swift. The result is a 'Taylor-made' diss and the standout moments are below:

After joining rapper Nicki Minaj on stage at her Toronto concert on Apr. 30, Drake hinted that his back and forth with Lamar wasn't over yet.

"I love you," he told the crowd. "You know what time it is — you know what I have to do."
