Kendrick Lamar is really keeping up the momentum in his feud, with Drake. Today the rapper from Compton dropped his diss track called “6;16 In LA” targeting the Toronto star in less than three days. And don’t forget, Tuesday he released “euphoria.”

Fans were quick to pick up on the fact that the title of Kendricks track seems to reference Drakes timestamp records,” which are songs named after a specific time and place that fans adore. It’s worth noting that “616” likely represents June 16th, Fathers Day and Kendricks previous diss had lyrics hinting at Drakes absence as a father.

“Who could reach this? Only God could teleport this type of freedom/ My God, my confession is yours, but/ Who am I if I don’t go to war?/ There’s opportunity when livin’ with laws/ I discover myself when I fall short/ Raise my hands to a fallen sky, I fantasize/ Me jumpin’ planets and mortal lies, I correspond,” Kendrick begins to rap over a soulful sample.

The lyrics get more direct as Kendrick mentions Drakes OVO crew and pokes fun at his song “Toosie Slide.” “Have you ever thought that OVO was workin’ for me?/ Fake bully, I hate bullies, you must be a terrible person/ Everyone in your team is whispering that you deserve it/ Can’t ‘Toosie Slide’ out of this one, it’s just gon’ resurface/ Every dog gotta have his day, now live in your purpose,” he continues.

The entire back and forth started with Kendrick Lamars track “Like That” on Future and Metro Boomin,s collaborative album, where Kendrick distanced himself from the three rappers. J. Cole responded a week later with “7 Minute Drill “. Has since expressed regret and removed the song from all platforms. Drake then chimed in with “Push Ups,” touching on Kendrick Lamars record label situation and other subjects.
