Friday, singer Erykah Badu weighed in on the situation and suggested that the OVO rapper respond to Kendrick’s reported fired shots.
“Drake, u gotta come-back boy … This HipHop,” Badu tweeted.
The TDE rapper and Badu have performed together in the past including a rendition of “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” at the BET Awards this past summer. Kendrick in the past has also said that working with Badu would be his “dream collaboration.”
Drake was one of the rappers mentioned on Kendrick’s verse from Big Sean’s song “Control.”
But this is Hip Hop and them niggas should know what time it is
And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Wale
Pusha T, Meek Millz, A$AP Rocky, Drake
Big Sean, Jay Electron’, Tyler, Mac Miller
I got love for you all but I’m tryna murder you niggas
In a recent HipHopDX interview with Papoose, Pap believed the diss was also targeted at him. In the interview, Papoose said he was planning to diss Kendrick Lamar soon.
“I’m dropping [a song] real soon, so people gonna see how I feel about that,” Papoose said. “It’s called ‘That’s My Word.” I want everybody to look forward to that and see what I think about that little comical situation.”
