Kendrick Lamar returned on Friday (May 13) with his fifth studio album, the Compton native’s first project since 2017’s DAMN. Titled Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, the 18-track effort is split into two parts and boasts features from Ghostface Killah, Kodak Black, Summer Walker, Blxst and Portishead’s Beth Gibbons, among others.

As fans quickly devoured the album, one particular line from “Father Time” featuring Sampha stood out in which Kendrick addressed the relationship between Kanye West and Drake. The two rap titans were beefing for years until they reconciled in the name of Gangster Disciple Larry Hoover last December. A month prior, Kanye also appeared to confirm with Drink Champs Kendrick and Drake were still on bad terms.

Interestingly enough, the song revolves around “grown men with daddy issues” with Kendrick rapping, “Daddy issues kept me competitive, that’s a fact, n-gga/I don’t give a fuck what’s the narrative/I am that n-gga/When Kanye got back with Drake, I was slightly confused/Guess I’m not as mature as I think, got some healin’ to do/Egotistic.”
