Drake responds to Kendrick Lamar with “Family Matters”

The clash is getting crazy.

The clash between Drake and Kendrick Lamar is at its peak. On April 30, Kendrick Lamar’s diss track “Euphoria” in response to Drake returned to social networks. In 3 days, the sound already has more than 20 million streams on Spotify. Mind-blowing figures which confirm the global expectation that Kendrick Lamar left during the time he prepared his punchlines. The clash amplified again this Friday, May 3 when K Dot unveiled a new diss-track “6:16only on Instagram.

If Drake initially reacted subtly on social networks, the latter was quick to send his response to K Dot. The song “Family Matters” has just been releaseda few hours after Kendrick’s. It lasts 7 minutes and he targets his rap enemies one by one: Kendrick Lamar, Future, Metro Boomin, Rick Ross, The Weeknd and ASAP Rocky.

“Stop trying to remake what I know and go pick up the pieces of your broken home.” writes Drizzy in his Instagram post.

For starters, the start of the seven-minute clip shows a mini-van, probably a reference to the Dodge van on the cover of Kendrick Lamar’s 2012 debut album, “Good Kid, MAAC City”, being crushed.

Drake claims from the beginning that Kendrick Lamar beat his wife by mentioning it: “You’re the black messiah who marries a mixed queen / And the vanilla cream to help you have self-esteem / I want to know what Whitney needs. / I don’t know what you’re going to do, but I don’t know what you’re going to do, but I don’t know what you’re going to do / They hired a crisis management team to clean up the fact that you beat your queen / When you put your hands on your girlfriend, is it self-defense because she’s bigger than you?”.

Worse still, Drake drops a bomb, claiming that Kendrick Lamar’s manager is the father of one of his childrenI heard one of these little kids might be Dave Free’s.” Simple malice with a lie to boot? It’s very likely.

Violent lyrics that are not ready to be finished, since the Canadian rapper will directly attack his other enemies and first and foremost ASAP Rocky, who previously targeted Drake in the song “Show of Hands.”

Drake used ASAP Rocky’s real name, Rakim Mayersand alluded to his relationship with Rihanna while ASAP Rocky allegedly had a relationship with the mother of Drake’s baby rapping: “The world is falling apart. / I have no room for error / I don’t even know if you still rap because they only talk about your fitness again / You probably need to have a kid before you think about dropping shit again.”

All like on “Push Ups”, Drake attacked The Weeknd : “The Weeknd’s music is played in places where the boys have a little more pride / That’s why all your friends go to Atlanta and pay to find a guide / I’m not allowed to have any children / I have no choice but to meet the others / I’m going to buy a used Ferrari for a rapper and take him for a ride / I don’t need to be a man, I am a man”

ASAP Rocky, The Weeknd, and Kendrick aren’t the only people Drake responded to. He also had violent words for Future and Metro Boominwhen criticizing their recent albums: “Pluto shit makes me sick to my stomach, we never really got through this I don’t know what I’m gonna do / These guys had a plan and they finally found a way to fit in / Two albums distinct, I just felt unwell”

Drake also took the time to respond to his former collaborator Rick Rosswho relentlessly harassed him on social media and on the song “Champagne Moments”, while rapping: “What did I hear from Rick / He’s talking about a nose job / I don’t know what I’m gonna do, but I don’t know what I’m gonna do / I don’t I didn’t have time to go to school, I had time to go to school”.

Kendrick released a diss track again after Drake’s with “Meet the Grahams”, already available on Youtube. It never ends.
