Kendrick Lamar Doubles Down on Drake Feud With Searing Diss Track ‘6:16 in LA’

After a scorching round one display from Kendrick Lamar earlier this week with “Euphoria,” the pgLang stalwart is doubling down and taking a page out of Drake’s book by going “Back-to-Back” with his latest diss track, “6:16 in LA.” 

Released early Friday morning (May 3), Lamar charges Drake with a barrage of attacks about having traitors on his OVO squad, rapping: “Have you ever thought that OVO was working for me?/ Fake bully, I hate bullies/ You must be a terrible person/ Everyone inside your team is whispering that you deserve it/ Can’t Toosie Slide up out of this one, it’s just gon’ resurface.”

Lamar’s onslaught continued, calling out Drake’s brethren when he said his close ones are stabbing him behind his back. “100 n—as that you got on salary/ and 20 of them want you as a casualty/ and one of them is actually/ is next to you / and two of them is practically tied to your lifestyle,” he spews.

With “Euphoria” amassing a staggering 9.2 million Spotify streams on its debut day, Lamar’s decision to strike again leaves fans on the edge, eagerly anticipating a comeback from the OVO captain. Drake, seemingly unperturbed, brushed off Lamar’s initial move by posting a clip from the 1999 rom-com 10 Things I Hate About You on Instagram. However, his cryptic comment during his appearance with Nicki Minaj at her Pink Friday Tour stop on April 30 hinted at a possible retaliation: “You know what time it is — you know what I have to do.”
