Drake released ‘The Heart Part 6’, claims ‘I’d never look twice at no teenager’

Yesterday, I tried to summarize the recent rap battle/extremely personal beef between Kendrick Lamar and Drake. This is a beef Drake wanted, this is a battle Drake thought he could win, which is crazy enough on its own. I’m an outsider to this world and even I know there are some people you simply do not f–k with, and Kendrick Lamar is one of those people. Please, the man won a Pulitzer… and he’s probably going to win a second Pulitzer for his well-researched and brilliant Drake takedown.

This weekend was dominated by the one-two punch of Kendrick’s “Meet the Grahams” and “Not Like Us.” “Meet the Grahams” is a surgical evisceration of Drake, it’s the musical equivalent of a snuff film, with Kendrick revealing that Drake is a deadbeat dad who is hiding at least one other child besides Adonis (the son he hid, who was revealed by Pusha T). Kendrick addressed “Meet the Grahams” to Adonis, to Drake’s daughter, to Drake’s parents and Drake himself and it was enough to do lasting damage to Drake. Less than 24 hours later, Kendrick dropped “Not Like Us,” which is actually just a great song, a song which will get a ton of club play and possibly be an early contender for the song of the summer. Like, people are going to tear it up to “Not Like Us” at the Met Gala tonight. It was also an evisceration of Drake’s character and career, his team and his sexuality.

Drake spent the whole weekend in shock about how Kendrick responded to him. And then last night, Drake finally responded. The response is… not great, Bob. It’s called “The Heart Part 6” and it’s basically Drake still trying to speculate about Kendrick’s relationship with his partner, plus some of the craziest sh-t about how Drake knew that Kendrick would attack him for being a predator (why is that) and DRAKE mentions Millie Bobby Brown (Kendrick never said her name). “Only f–kin’ with Whitneys, not Millie Bobby Browns, I’d never look twice at no teenager.” Except for all of the years’ worth of evidence that Drake was openly grooming teenage girls. This is so bad for Drake.

What’s been fascinating to watch is that Drake has lost the cultural conversation part of this and he’s lost the respect of his peers and even lukewarm fans. Rick Ross is ripping him apart, producers are sliding beats to Kendrick and it feels like there’s a significant shift.

    I’m also watching as an outsider but here’s an epic explainer of drake’s history. Drake just seems to deliberately antagonize people for clout. Sometimes battles can be fun but he’s not even fun about it.


    • LadyUltimate says:

      LOVE that dude. I follow him on tiktok and he can explain EVERYTHING so perfectly, he’s brilliant.

      Before the real names (Drake, Kendrick, etc) hit the mainstream some other dude made a video on tiktok explaining the whole beef by putting the story into a different scene. Like Kendrick was Taylor Swift and, well, I forgot who represented Drake in the story. But it was so awesome and I simply knew whatever would drop to the main floor was gonna be JUICY! Wish I found that video again!

    • QuiteContrary says:

      This is fantastic.

  2. Creek says:

    It’s hilarious. The absolute hubris of him. He full on believed his own hype so much that he actually thought he’d come out on top against Kendrick.

  3. lisa says:

    what’s weird is that we all knew this and most people weren’t that mad at drake until someone more talented had some beef with him

  4. Digital Unicorn says:

    I also know nothing about this world or even much about these 2 artists but even I KNOW not to fk with Kendrick Lamar – the man transcends everything all at the same time. Only a halfwit fkwit would take him on which Drake clearly is and has been for a very long time.

    Now that he Drake has lost what little respect he had left from his world – lets hope justice and karma come for his burnt ass.

  5. Imara219 says:

    Don’t forget Drake has been sort of responding in-between but he can’t keep up after Euphora where Kendrick warned Drake even more “I know your angles and I know you are going to dig into my family but trust you don’t want to do that” type energy followed up by a darker tur in 6:16 in L.A. where Kendrick reinterates, “dude don’t. Don’t do the moves I know you want to do”. Drake was silly and tried to drop a skit and meme (which landed like a dud), and decided to do a Family Matters, which was ok but not on the level, calling us slaves and saying how he was going on vacay, so there was no need to respond. Drake was so arrogant he dropped this with a video roll-out. Drake had people in his camp trying to egg on Kendrick. Big mistake. 11mins later, Kendrick said bet and dropped Meet the Grahams, which was so masterful in its execution that there was no need to hear from anyone. The problem is that side-convos started. DJ Vlad telling a Black woman he will report her to her Princeton bosses because she told him to sit this one out. DJ Academiks trying to help his boy Drake. And that’s when Kendrick said…I’m not done…boom…here is Not Like Us for you to throw your hands up to in the club. Metro Boom hating Drake so bad he did a diss drum beat for free (Drake told him to just be quiet and make drum beats), so any rapper on SoundCloud can now blast Drake. All of that is what prompted Drake’s other releases, but yeah, it was clear he’s out of gas.

    • Jensies says:

      It’s been an amazing week for hip hop fans, kdot fans, and drake haters and I’m happy to count myself in all three camps. For years now, I’ve wanted him to be taken down. To see that happen by Kendrick? Maybe I do believe in a higher power after all.

      I can’t get not like us or metro’s bbl drizzly bop out of my head, what a time to be alive!

      • kirk says:

        Never counted myself as a Drake hater, just an old white woman who’s never liked drake music. That’s why I was amazed last year when I liked a Drake song I heard on Sirius radio in the car. Turns out it was that AI generated song by TikTok ghostwriter977 – 😆

    • Cait says:

      Kendrick told Drake tell no lies about me and I won’t tell the truth about you.
      That Atlanta Verse on “You not like Us” exposed Drake’s entire grift perfectly .

  6. Imara219 says:

    Sure Jan

  7. SIde Eye says:

    Drake is literally on the floor on his back from getting popped in the mouth and Kendrick stood over him and yelled “my grandmama gave me that chain!” Dude, you’re done.

    Drake has always been a poseur, a Creepy McCreeperton, and a buster. He is so delusional to come for Kendrick. Kendrick Lamar doesn’t just have a Pulitzer. He has an album in the Library of Congress. I am really happy to watch this bitchslap in real time and I am here for Drake’s comeuppance.

    I hope these teenagers start coming forward. Also, I am old enough to remember when professional sports teams were talking about a Drake curse and discouraging him from attending their games. Good times!

    I got so many notifications, I couldn’t stop ignoring them. But this is how rappers used to beef – not with these kinds of allegations but with pure lyricism proving your talent. And old school rappers wrote their own lyrics. Drake was crazy to keep picking on Kendrick. K has now made a diss track that people can dance to. I had to watch a couple of reaction videos to know who/what some of the references/people mentioned were. So K dropped 3 songs in 48 hr period (6:16, Meet the Grahams and Not Like Us). The whole video for Not Like Us is a Google image of Drake’s mansion with sex offender pins, which forced you to listen to K’s words. And that video got 15 million views on YouTube. And Kendrick is a master at double entendres. He basically called out Drake, Drake’s posse (several by name, and Drake’s org OVO). K’s response to Drake’s tired sounding latest “diss” track should be interesting bc K said he’s got 10 more diss tracks ready. Some people referred to K as Kung Fu Kenny and I can see why. I just want them to keep it on wax/in the studio. I remember what happened with 2Pac and Biggie. And these are serious allegations. Speaking of, Drake deserved to be slammed for using an AI of Pac. Imo its disrespectful, esp since his estate has objected.

    A couple of the YouTuber’s I watch regularly pointed out that Drake is fully backed by UMG & Lucian Grange, head of Universal Music Group and the most powerful man in the music industry. Lucian and UMG were named along with Diddy in Lil’ Rod’s recent lawsuit.

    • Fifty-50 says:

      Who are the people you watch? Would love some recommendations!

      • Chantal1 says:

        @Fifty-50 I watch Tisa Tells, who has been extensively covering Diddy and is also pro Sussex. I’ve watched Lovely Ti’s channel for about 10 yrs and she has consistently talked about Dirty and Drake (and others) and the disturbing rumors around them. I’ve also watched Sloan, and Patty Jackson (who also notes upcoming music related documentaries). F legal commentary I watch Emily D. Baker, NatalieLawyerChick, Meidas Touch, Boss Attorney Bri, Law and Crime Network and “Girl, Is That Legal?”. I will occasionally watch Royal Sussex, Duchess of Sussex, Murad Merali, Prince Dre the Duke, and Klaire Kane but I get the bulk of my Sussex info from CB. Meredith Constant is an actual journalistic so her Sussex content is interesting. I try to subscribe to pro Sussex content creators bc the YouTube algorithm really pushes the negative and hateful ones. Hope this helps.
        *Auto corrected Diddy to Dirty so I’m keeping it. 😂

      • Fifty-50 says:

        Thanks so much!

      • Jais says:

        Wow. Thx for this list. I generally avoid YT bc it looks scary anti-sussex but these recs are helpful. I think I’ve seen prince Dre clips though.

  9. Chantal1 says:

    Also wanted to add that these are serious allegations. And despite Drake’s backing, I hope this beef triggers an investigation by Canadian and US law enforcement. Like other similar high profile men, these “rumors have been around for years.”

    • molly says:

      Yep. I don’t know much about this world, but even *I* know Drake likes to “mentor” young actresses.

  10. LadyUltimate says:

    I believe Drake’s fate was sealed already when Mos Def wouldn’t call Drake’s stuff HipHop but rather shopping-at-Target music. LOLZ

  11. B says:

    He used a double negative to assert his denial.

    • GoldenMom says:

      THANK you!

      • B says:

        It’s not an exercise in the grammar police- it’s that rappers typically seem exceptionally gifted in language skills. They’re amazing. If you gave them formal psych testing, it might be a splinter skill, but their language testing would probably score exceptionally well. They spit out coherent sentences that rhyme on beat and… my god. So much talent.
        So then for the (probably) language-gifted guy to use a double negative regarding a statement about innocence…. It seems…. off.

  12. Latine says:

    I wonder what happened to cause this outburst. Drake has been asking for it for A LONG TIME. We talking at least 8 years, but why now. Did Drake want to address the underage grooming claims/suspension so this cake about?

    Either way I hated whatever Drake and his backers/team did to Meek Mill. Here is the story —
    Meek Mill paid for Drake to be on a song. While in the studio or outside Meek twitted (I don’t have the wording right- “I didn’t know Drake used ghostwriters””wow, all of its ghostwriters”). Because of that Drake team ran a smear campaign that lasted almost a week and tanked his album release. Drake even messed up his radio schedule. Meek had every right to talk about ghostwriters because any fees come from his budget. Unless the ghostwriters never want credit and are paid solely from drakes cut.

    • Chantal1 says:

      @Latine. Drake accused K of being a woman beater, which K denied on The Breakfast Club. Drake also claimed that Ks fiance cheated on him with his manager. And K warned him (paraphrasing) “don’t tells any lies on me and I won’t tell any truths about you”. K hinted that there’s a mole in Drake’s camp….

      I didn’t know that about Meek Mill! Thanks for that tea. The streets are saying that Drake is a gatekeeper so….

  13. LooneyTunes says:

    I have no dog in this race, but Kendrick’s blatant homophobia (using derogatory references to queerness) to insult Drake was a turnoff.

    • OriginalLeigh says:

      Valid criticism but you should also be turned off by Drake making several homophobic comments, as well as transphobic comments about Kendrick’s trans uncle. Additionally, he made disgusting jokes about victims of child molestation and insensitive comments about Black American slaves.

    • Jensies says:

      So, if you’re talking about the, I believe you don’t like women bar, I get how that sounds homophobic but I believe Kendrick was actually saying, I believe you don’t like WOMEN (because misogyny) and do like GIRLS (because pedophilia) and do like ESCORTS (because you can’t handle real relationships). He goes into it more in meet the grahams. Kendrick has really worked on his homophobia and transphobia, he actually has a song on his most recent album about loving and accepting his aunt/uncle who transitioned to a man.

  14. Chaine says:

    Not really a fan of either of these artists, but went and listened to Kendricks tracks, and wow, brutal! Slightly off-topic, while I was listening to “ meet the Grahams” my Spotify app pushed a “Picked for you” notification about a podcast called “The Truth Behind Ozempic,” thinking I’m gonna jump from a song dissing Drake for using it to an expose about the drug’s dark side—-the algorithm trying to catch up with this rap beef cracked me up.

  15. Nikzilla says:

    OMG did Rick Ross refer to Drizzy as “white boy”??
    He’s cooked. This is crazy entertaining.

  16. Jan Eoe says:

    Unfortunately his use of a double negative makes him sound ignorant and guilty.

  17. Midnight@theOasis says:

    From what I’ve read and had explained to me, there seems to be professional jealousy on Drake’s part toward Kendrick. Apparently Drake is bothered by Kendrick having won a Pulitzer Prize and video of Obama saying Kendrick would win hands down in a rap battle with Drake.

  18. Oya says:

    This entire beef has been entertaining. It’s giving Machine Gun Kelly vs Eminem. Ima need Drake to sit this one out🤣🤣🤣

  19. Raster says:

    Kendrick doing all these tantrums after he didn’t like Drake and Cole saying they were the top 3 best because Kendrick thinks he alone is the best of all time.
    Biitch Sit Down, Be Humble.
    Bringing up not black enough and falling for some wagatha christie set up. I don’t even like Drake, but Kenny is moving so insecure, not at all like the greatest of all time. More like Napoleon SDE.

    • kirk says:

      I have no idea what you’re talking about because I haven’t listened to what you call ” all these tantrums.” However, I do recall the reason I don’t like Drake’s music is because it always seemed misogynistic (no correlation to his skin color). Then I remembered that Drake supported Tony Lanez over Meghan Thee Stallion – super misogynistic! I’ve never detected misogyny coming from Kendrick Lamar, but since you seem to be more tuned in because “all these tantrums” please update me if u think Kendrick’s “tantrums” are misogynistic.

  20. Holly says:

    In his song called Rich Spirit off his Mr. Morale album (which is SO good) Kendrick says, ‘stop playing with me before I turn you to a song.’

    Which is exactly what he did, multiple times, by coming out with all these bangers. Drake wouldn’t stop playing with him, and now he’s been burned to the ground with Kendrick’s spitting fire lyrics 🔥
