Kendrick Lamar reportedly dissed Drake during the Compton, California rapper’s BET Hip Hop Awards cypher appearance.
“Nothing’s been the same since they dropped ‘Control’ / And tucked the sensitive rapper back in his pajama clothes,” Kendrick Lamar says in his cypher verse. “Ha-ha, jokes on you / High-five, I’m bullet proof / Your shits will never penetrate / Pin the tail on the donkey, boy, you’ve been a fake.”
Reports of Kendrick Lamar dissing Drake stem from the rapper’s use of “nothing’s been the same” in the verse. The line likely refers to Drake’s album title, Nothing Was The Same.
No official word has been made regarding whether the verse was directly a diss to Drake.
