(AllHipHop News) Talk of tension between Drake and Kendrick Lamar has been circulating for years. Observers suspect the two Grammy winning rappers have been throwing subliminal shots at each other on various records.
Neither Champagne Papi nor Cornrow Kenny have really addressed the alleged covert back-and-forth, but ESPN’s Marcellus Wiley claims to have insider information about the Drake vs Kendrick feud nearly becoming one of the most public beefs in Hip Hop history.
During an episode of Max & Marcellus, Wiley spoke about the supposed clash. He said:
I can’t say what I wanna say, but I’m gonna say it anyways, because my contract is up and this might give me more money. All I know is there was a beef, and all I know is I was witness to when the beef would have ignited to proportions we have not seen since Ja Rule/50, maybe even Ice Cube/N.W.A.
They went there. But that was destroyed from everyone’s property. That was destroyed, that interview, that moment was destroyed. That’s all I’m gonna say. But I was there and I heard the shots fired…
It was one-sided, and the other side was about to retaliate if that would’ve got out, but they destroyed the evidence. And I ain’t lying.
Wiley would not confirm which rapper’s team made sure the purported interview was never released. The former NFL player also refused to provide any more details about the alleged situation.
Ever since Kendrick challenged his peers by name on Big Sean’s “Control,” followers of the TDE representative as well as fans of Drake have continued to examine their respective lyrics to see if any bars were aimed at the other.
Lines from K. Dot’s verses on “Pay For It,” “King Kunta,” “Darkside/Gone,” “Deep Water” and “Untitled 07” have been suspected of being subs meant for Drake.
Drizzy allegedly responded to Kendrick on “The Language,” “Sh!t (Remix),” “Used To,” “6PM In New York,” and “100.”
